A guided meditation for healing injury to help you feel better and recover faster. Press play and lets get meditated!
Being injured is no fun! Often it means that athletes and exercisers are in pain and they are not able to participate in the sport they love. Usually when we think of being injured, we know we need to take time to let the body heal. But what if you learned that you might be able to speed up the healing process?
Research suggests that maintaining a positive attitude and using mental skills are related to a shorter rehabilitation. In fact, when researchers compared slow and fast healers, they found that the fast healers:
- took personal responsibility for healing
- had high desire and determination
- had more social support
- maintained a positive attitude
- used creative visualization
- were less fearful of re-injury upon return to full participation
These are some of the mental skills I teach members in the Hurt Foot Fitness Coaching Program. Having the guidance and support from a coach and team is powerful in healing, especially when the journey is often long and challenging. Maintaining mental strength and stamina is KEY in a successful recovery.
I hope if you are healing from an injury you can find relief in this guided meditation practice. The goal of this meditation for healing injury is to introduce you to a mindfulness exercise and explain how you can use it to manage pain and complement your physical rehabilitation. As always, you need to follow all instructions given by your doctor or therapist. Meditation is a skill you can use in addition to your physical rehabilitation exercises.
WHY Meditation For Healing Injury?
The link is simple. Stress inhibits healing and meditation reduces stress. In addition to the psychological stress-reducing benefits, meditation has been shown in studies to reduce levels of the stress hormone cortisol. While a 10-20 minute daily practice probably won’t magically fix broken bones, meditation has been shown to potentially have some wound-healing properties and if you’re treating stress-related anxiety around your injury, it’s an excellent addition to your existing protocol.
Giving yourself a few minutes of meditation each day is a great way to speed recovery and to cut through life’s constant stress. While it might not work magic – it WILL help you feel better throughout recovery.
