Treating muscle pain

Treating muscle pain
  • A hot compress. Applying heat to the area is an effective way to treat muscle pain. It can be a hot-water bottle or a microwaveable bean bag.
  • Refrain from pressing on tight, sore spots. It most likely will only give you short-term results and be uncomfortable. Exercising seems to provide longer-term improvement.
  • Weight lifting. Research suggests the most effective way of treating muscle pain is low-intensity weight training.

Benefits

It is never too late to start running. Many take up this sport in their 50s and beyond. To start, you only need a good pair of running shoes and a desire.

Running is a very effective way to build cardiovascular endurance and increase mental toughness. It is an excellent stress reliever and will improve your health overall.

Really see each other

Making eye contact with someone can relieve stress and create a deeper sense of connection. 

Even making eye contact with a stranger can soften your heart.
