Can we really do something to reduce the pain volume? First, we need to add flexibility and good blood flow to the body. The flexibility from stretching and yoga practice helps us sit still without moving for a longer period of time. Likewise, the good blood flow makes the body more relaxed and draws the attention away from any discomfort. This is possible by working out, exercising or having a massage regularly. Second, a good meditation posture reduces the pain. The proper allocation of weight when we sit and meditate prevents some parts of the body from bearing too much weight. The weight should be equally allocated on the front and the back side. Make sure also to keep the back straight to reduce the back pain in the long run. Using the right chair and cushion to support your seating also reduces the volume of pain. Third, it’s okay to move when you feel discomfort. You don’t have to torture yourself and sit like a robot without moving at all. So, moving now and then is possible. But if you have to keep moving every 1 minute, it means there is something else to be fixed first.
