#478 – Water. Hot. Stat!

It’s been a long time since I’ve had “Knife Arthritis” – that grinding, deep-in-the bone, aching sensation that can be so distracting and painful.

In addition to this A/C trick, a hot shower often helps me loosen up and ease out of that knife-in-bone feeling.

While I’m enjoying the cascading water, I also do some range of motion exercises, or this breathing check.

Sometimes, I like to imagine that I’m standing underneath a lovely waterfall, washing away all my pain, and replacing it with pleasant water-filled memories of the places I’ve been and the experiences I’ve had.

By practising this on a regular basis, I know what it feels like when I’ve improved my heart rate variability. It’s that powerful stress undressing capability that comes with the harmonizing effects of a smooth heart rhythm.

Please contact me for more information about how you can witness your own change of heart.

  1. Great waterfall picture Marianna. So positive. I’m glad that you are not getting that knife feeling. I know what you mean luckily from the past more than the present. And pain memory is always a good one to let go of and forget.

  2. Hey Marianna glad you were able to see yourself through the pain. I can attest to the power of positive visualization and that it can be a powerful asset to manage painful situations. thanks for the great post!
