1. Learn to breathe deeply and relax
If you want get your body into a relaxed state, learning how to breathe deeply and even spending time meditating can help make that possibility a reality.

This slow breathing technique can be practiced for a minimum of three minutes at a time to both get the heart and lungs in sync and also help to slow you down and get you relaxed.

Capsaicin creme is designed to get to the nerve endings and numb them out. This in turn allows the body to get used to the pain because the nerve endings are deactivated and unable to focus on the soreness that you would normally feel. Just be careful: using too much Capsaicin to begin with and also getting it on your hands and rubbing your eyes will cause some series discomfort in another manner!

Use it to recover from injury, distract you from the pain, and help provide healing and wellness to the affected areas.
Those are my best tips to help both relieve pain in certain areas and also to prevent it in general. Although some amount of pain is inevitable at some point in time, it is never a bad idea to learn how to alleviate it at all costs and reduce it when it becomes a necessary portion of life.
