3 Pain Relief Techniques that Really Work

Spending eight hours sat down at a desk and a few more driving around made me start suffering from back pain. I think we all go through this because of our routines, bad postures, etc. And usually, our friends, colleagues and family members even make fun of it saying things like “You’re getting old”.

The truth is, this is something more serious than you think and the earlier you treat this problem the easier it will be in your future to avoid these type of pains. So here are 3 things that helped me with my lower back pain:

Yoga – stretching exercises can really help waking up all parts of our body and to make sure these are in shape and pain-free. If you combine these exercises with breathing techniques you’ll feel relaxed and you’ll see a great improvement in your posture.

Good posture – make sure your chair, either at work, school or wherever you spent most of your time, is in the right position for your weight. You can always add a cushion if it makes you feel more comfortable, this will help you keep a good posture while sitting down. Also make sure you stand up at least every hour, even if it’s to go make yourself a coffee or to just stretch your muscles. Our bodies sometimes need to be awakened.

Natural pain relief products – After reading about Sanare Smart CBD products with natural ingredients that help with pain relief, I decided to give them a try.  They produce topical lotions, tinctures, pet products, soaps, sunscreen and more, all infused with CBD, terpenes, and essential oils to help with pain. The truth is I’ve been doing so much better that sometimes I get up from my chair after having sat down for a long time and I expect to feel some pain and really surprises me when I don’t. My husband is also using these after his football matches when he comes home with any small injury and after a few hours, the pain is gone.

These are the products I’ve been using: The CBD original Advanced Tropical Pain Relief and the California Orange Tincture.

Stand Up to your Skin

There are plenty of ways of getting your skincare routine wrong. I know that because for several years I was using products that were recommended by friends or that just smelled good.

Now that I’ve done my research in this topic and that I’m constantly on the lookout for new great skincare products that are non-animal tested and that are right for my type of skin and my age, that’s when I can tell you – I know what I’m talking about.

The latest addition to my skincare routine was the Wake Skincare Eye Gel, a very lightweight, hydrating eye treatment for fine lines and eye bags that will help me maintain a young looking appearance for many years to come.

The gel was formulated for our under-eye area and besides even out skin tone, it also improves elasticity and provides us with long-lasting hydration.

I’ve tried a similar product before from Body Shop, but I wasn’t happy with how long it was taking for my skin to absorb it and that’s not ideal when you’re trying to rush to the office in the morning.

With Wake Skincare eye gel I don’t have that problem anymore and it’s even helping me reduce the puffiness under my eyes.

If you want to give it a try, here’s their website.

The ultimate massage experience at home

Imagine arriving home from a stressful day at work and having a massage always waiting for you.

I’ve recently got a Naipo Shiatsu Kneading Massager Neck & Shoulder Massager with Heat and I’m really enjoying all its features! It has 8 kneading shiatsu massage nodes that give me an in-depth bi-directional massage, which helps with stress relief to tired muscles while soothing away tension for ultimate relaxation.

Its design fits properly to different parts of my body: my neck, my shoulders, arms, back (where I usually have all the pain from being seated all day), thighs, etc. But my favourite feature is the gentle heat from the massage nodes that really help me relax, especially during these cold months.

I also tested it on a long car drive (of course I wasn’t the one driving) and it’s very practical and made the whole experience very relaxing.

This is one of those things that you didn’t know you needed it until you got one, and once you do, you’ll start using it daily because it becomes an addiction. A really good one!

You can order yours here.
