Ready For A Laugh To Chase The Blues Away?

Hi all!

Well its late January and not my fave time of year for many reasons. Where I live it is dark early- It is freezing cold just now or raining and I long for the odd sunny day we get. Lately I am yearning for signs of Spring.

Even though I rarely get back or sciatic pain now, my back always gives me a little jip this time of year due to the cold. I tense up my muscles in the cold and that always seems to affect my back. If I use a heat pad I find it helps. I also need to step up my lose the back pain exercises again, they sort me out very quickly but I have really let my back care go over the last few months due to family illness which meant I have been under some stress and had little time lately for looking after me and my back.

Anyway...through my experiences, I do now believe that part of back pain is physical and part of it is mental or emotional and I am sure now that if I get down or sick or stressed that I get some twinges. Time for a bit of cheering up!

Adults laugh a lot less than children and people in pain probably have less to be laughing about than most. Yet smiling and laughing are very good for us emotionally and mentally which helps with physical recovery. If you can have a chuckle at something and even temporarily forget about the pain and stress of back pain it can help such a lot.

Looking After Our Childrens Backs?

Well the kids will be going back to school soon after the holidays and they seem to be needing to carry so much around with them now and doing a lot of sitting at computers and also reading and watching TV if my nieces and nephews are typical. They do physical exercise as well of course but does it really matter about their seated posture?

Is it ever too young to start looking after children's backs?
For those of you who have back and sciatic pain now you would not want your child to go through that. I know I would not. I started with back pain from the age of 18 and for many years largely ignored it. As I got older though it became harder to ignore and then I ended up with major back and sciatic pain & herniated, degenerative discs that was debilitating. Had I known then what I know now I would have tackled it much earlier.
Perhaps now would be a good time to check what your child is spending time sitting on at home and at school. Prevention is far better than cure. Encourage good posture and good habits now and ensure as far as you can that seating is appropriate.

This study is interesting

Happy New Year!



Wishing each and every one of you a Great New Year Ahead!

My wish to you is for a New year filled with the fulfilment of wishes you wish for yourself.

My wish to you is that this is the year you discover relief from your back and sciatic pain, you find what works for you and apply it consistently.

My wish is that you are happy and at peace with yourself, the world and everyone in it.

Here are just a few quotes I find to be inspiring to me.

"With all its sham ,drudgery and broken dreams it is still a beautiful world."

"Nothing will ever be attempted if all possible objections must first be overcome."


"When solving problems, dig at the roots instead of just hacking at the leaves."

"Happiness is like a butterfly; the more you chase it, the more it will elude you, but if you turn your attention to other things, it will come and sit softly on your shoulder..."

"And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music."

"Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body... but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming Woo~Hoo - What a Ride!"

"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass,
It's about learning to dance in the rain."


Thank you to everyone who reads my blog and has supported me and lets look forward to a New Year ahead.

With Love and Gentle Hugs
