I thought I had posted this months ago, but turns out it was still a “Draft”. Enjoy this awesome video!

Happy Monday, everyone! I saw this video this morning, and had to share it with you.

This video, from GP Access and the Hunter Integrated Pain Service, discusses Pain, and how pain stems from our BRAIN 100% of the time (click here to see their page that included the survey used to conduct some of their research). Regardless of how severe, or how long we have been experiencing the pain, it is our brain that tells our body that it hurts. After explaining that concept in very simple terms, the video then discusses some of the things that we can do to do try and train our bodies to be healthier and happier.

Smoking, nutrition, alcohol and activity level can have a significant impact on pain in our bodies, and how we deal with them. Think about the different areas in your life that may be contributing to any pain you may be having!

From the video:
“So to sum up pain, it comes from the brain and it can be re-trained, and when looked at from a whole personal broad perspective, gives you a lot of opportunities to begin.”
