How to forget about Pain (Part II)

How to forget about Pain (Part II)
394

Today we continue talking about comprehending the pain. Here are three new ways to overcome this strong feeling and make it your powet.

3. Laugh

Imagine: you woke up in the middle of the night with own bladder working as an alarm clock. You jump out of bed, with half-closed eyes rushing to the bathroom ... and stumbling on the threshold. Pain! Wild unbearable pain! What will you do at that moment? Of course, after remembering someone's mother and telling everything you think about your door. Will you cry or silently go to the toilet. Maybe have a laugh?

"Laughter is the best medicine," psychologists say. Of course, laughter is unlikely to help to cure a cancerous tumor or stop bleeding, but a sense of humor precisely helps to reduce pain. Laughter helps the brain to produce endorphins - hormones of happiness that possess analgesic properties, due to which you will suffer less. So you make yourself laugh at a critical moment.

How to forget about Pain: Is it all you've got? Give me more

1. Is it all you've got? Give me more

Scientists conducted a series of tests in which they studied the behavior of volunteers in home and laboratory conditions: some subjects were asked to watch funny Internet videos, and some - boring popular science programs. It turned out that the participants of the experiment, who were laughing at the amusing videos, were much more tolerant to the pain than those who watched serious documentary films. In addition, 15 minutes of laughter is enough to reduce the pain threshold by as much as 10%.

But in order for the laughter to have a healing effect, you must learn to laugh properly: laugh must be from the heart, to the colic, with breathing in the air with full chest. And do not pay attention to oblique glances from the side – why do you need to care for such things?

4. Convince yourself that pain is good

You may think what you think about neurolinguistic programming: some thinks that this is complete nonsense, and someone has experienced the affirmations. But the fact that the pain is different is a fact. Agree, the aching tooth is the SOS signal, which states serious dental problems, while the "suffering" muscles after training are just a sign of atrophy, which is why our brain can perceive pain as a blessing.

To prove this, scientists conducted experiments again. They recruited two groups of brave people, applied a tourniquet on their hands, thus limiting the flow of blood, and asked to endure unpleasant sensations as long as they had enough strength. At the same time, the first group was told that the test is dangerous for their limbs, and the second, on the contrary, that it will strengthen the muscles: the longer they last, the more they will benefit. As a result, the researchers found that the pain threshold in the second was significantly higher than in the first. The experiment was repeated several times, but the results remained the same: the "frightened" participants writhed in pain after a few minutes, and the subjects from the second group tolerated it, believing that they would eventually get biceps, as in Schwarzenegger.

Thus, a little lie in saving yourself proved to be very useful. So the next time, hitting a finger instead of a nail, think not about pain, but about the priceless experience that you get.

5. Look at something terrifying

Imagine yourself in the dentist's chair: trembling with fear, you look at the "torture" tools, the drill, the sound of which makes you cover with a cold sticky sweat. To at least distract yourself a little, you look away and see pictures with beautiful landscapes or posters on the wall. The doctor took care of you, decorating the cabinet with pacifying pictures, but unfortunately, he did not know that in this case horror pictures are much more effective.

How to forget about Pain: You aren't even trying, are you?

2. You aren't even trying, are you?

Relentless scientists conducted the following experiment: they showed the subjects slides, depicting people in different life situations - from neutral to catastrophic. And before that they were asked to put their hand in a reservoir of icy water and keep it there as much as they could. The paradox was that the volunteers who saw the unpleasant pictures, tolerated the pain better than those who admired the flowers.

Remember, if you want to distract someone from pain, do not mention Donald Duck, better show the bloodiest scene from “Saw” movie. And do not run away from the dentist's office, decorated with zombie portraits: most likely, this is a very good specialist who understands not only dentistry, but also psychology.
