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.

Anne Frank House| Amsterdam

Anne Frank’s story is pretty well known worldwide and I remember reading her diary when I was only 15 years old and being already very shocked with all the events. Now 13 years later, visiting The Anne Frank House in Amsterdam had a really big impact on me.

Of course, as we get older we see things differently and understand every little detail, but this was a very special experience that I believe everyone should go through.

The Anne Frank House was established on 3 May 1957 in cooperation with Otto Frank, Anne Frank’s father. They are an independent non-profit organisation that runs a museum in the house where Anne Frank went into hiding and their goal is to increase awareness of Anne’s life story all over the world.

We were not allowed to take photos inside and there was no point on doing it because you wouldn’t be able to feel it through the photos. You need to be there and I recommend you do it after reading her diary and the story in her own words. They have a guide during the visit and they will explain everything to you, but I believe it would be more impactful for you if you know the story already and then let the guide be your reminder during the house tour.

If you want to know more, such as prices, opening times, etc, visit The Anne Frank House on TripAdvisor.

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.
