So here is my challenge to you.
If you’ve been dealing with pain for a long time, set yourself a 30-day goal.
Obviously, this is specific to you. I can’t tell you what your goal should be, but it needs to be attainable, and you need to be able to measure and track the progress.
Here’s an example.
Say that right now you can only walk for 15 minutes in the grocery store before your back starts killing you and you need to either lean on the cart or sit down and take a break. If that’s the case, start walking DAILY for 10 or 12 minutes. Do this DAILY!! And maybe by the second week, you work your way up to walking 13 minutes. By the end of 30 days, your goal could be to walk 18 minutes without a flare-up of your back pain.
The thing is, this may not seem like much. But, if you’re able to do this for 4-6 months, think of how much progress you could make, and how much different your life could be.
This can be tedious, and it’s certainly hard work. But the payoff is worth it! You’re worth it!
