Vicious circle, isn’t it? This needs to be broken. When your body gets sufficient rest, it heals and breaks the cycle of insomnia and muscle tension. So, sleep away! Get Your Brain Busy Pain signals are interpreted and processed by your brain so if you distract your brain, you solve half the problem! To do this, you can practice mindfulness and meditation. You can also indulge in cognitive behavioral therapy which is a very effective way to manage pain and keep your brain engaged in things that are positive and happy.
