Back pain can be incredibly painful and a terrible way for you to go through life. Because it is such a painful physical affliction, you may not think it has anything to do with your mental state or emotional state. However, that is not true! There are some non-medical, non-physical things you can do to handle your back pain. Here are just a few of them.

 The very first thing you need to do is to accept ownership of your back pain. It is very easy to say that it's not your fault, and that it is something that just occurred to you. Even then, this type of belief makes you weak. Do you prefer to be weak? Of course not! Now you just have to think clearly about the actions you took that may have contributed to the pain you are feeling. When you get clear about some of the ways you are responsible for this back pain (for example, you are overweight), you can start changing those things. And when you change those things, you might make your back feel better too.

The next thing you need to do is to make a commitment to handling this back pain. You might be tempted to take a pain pill and stay in bed, but you need to get more proactive than that if you want this back pain to go away. You need to make a firm commitment to yourself that you will find a way to get rid of this back pain so you can claim back your life and do the things you used to do.

Get seven to eight hours of sleep. You may think that is a joke, and you may claim you can't get that much sleep, but you need to know that is an excuse. The human body sleeps for a reason. It is the time the body uses to repair itself and heal. If you never give your body a chance to do that, how can you heal? You have to get enough sleep every night to give your body a chance to do its work, but more than that, you must already know that when you feel rested you can handle things better. And your back pain can be more easily handled when you have had a good night's sleep beforehand.

Deal with your stress. You may not even realize how stressed out you are. You may not believe it affects your body, but study after study has shown that the body is physically affected by stress. Your back pain may be solely due to stress, as a matter of fact. Try cutting down stress where you can, and make your home a haven for peace. When you are less stressed, your back pain will be more manageable and may disappear altogether.

The information in this article is meant to help you open your eyes to the reality of how you can make a difference in your back pain. Hopefully you use the information to soothe your back and to be happy.
