Lifestyle tips:

Meditation: Eases pain, fights depression and anxiety, lowers cortisol levels, improves mental performance and aids in recovery from chronic illnesses. Simply focus gently on your breathing, in and out, nice and slowly. Your mind will wander at first which is ok, just gently take it back to your breathing. It takes practice, you may start at 5minutes and with ongoing practice, you will build the time up. You may find guided meditations easier. You may find it easier to focus on a sound or word.
