You might have heard the words mindfulness or meditation being thrown around pretty frequently throughout the years.
Mindfulness is the practice of being aware of the present moment. Meditation refers to being mindful of your inner processes. Meditation has been shown to reduce chronic pain by 57% in clinical trials and by over 90% in some patients. The best part is it works for beginners. Over time, meditation can change your brain structure to better deal with pain. The resulting cortical thickness makes you less pain-sensitive. Meditation also induces your body’s own opioid system.
