If you constantly feel frustrated, anxious, or on a short fuse, you could be suffering stress. This post is about giving you short cuts for dealing with the challenges of stress that may come about as a result of chronic pain. Let’s start with some fun hacks to relieve your pain related stress. Some stress busters that you can easily do. Here we go.
Fun Hacks to Relieve Your Pain Related Stress
1.Chewing gum. This may do more than freshen your breath. Did you know that it’s a good stress buster. It can cut anxiety and some studies suggest it boosts alertness and blood flow to the brain. Maybe you’re not into chewing gum. Well take up some mints and kiss someone. 
2. Kissing. Here’s the scoop when it comes to the power of a kiss. Science shows that it leads to amazing health benefits. “Any kind of kissing, including a friendly peck on the cheek, will make you more relaxed and happy. “Face-to-face contact is soothing,” says Tiffany Field, Ph.D., the director of the Touch Research Institute at the University of Miami. “The more people touch each other, the more peaceful they feel.” Deep, romantic kissing intensifies the effect because your body produces greater amounts of oxytocin, a hormone that triggers feelings of love and intimacy. One of the most pleasant hacks to relieve your pain related stress. 
Kissing Away Pain Related Stress and Ditching The Pills
Makes you happy: Endorphins are known to be the hormones responsible for happiness. Locking lips initiates the release of endorphins, which make you feel happy. Studies suggest that kissing helps to curb depression better than psychologist, treatments or anti-depressants.
Reduces pain: Engaging in a heated kissing session triggers your body to release adrenaline, which is known to reduce pain.
3. Singing a Happy Song. A great stress reliever is to think of a song that you love and hum it to yourself. Take a song like Simply The Best. If you are stressed out and hum the lyrics to the song, it will be difficult to stay in a funk because your mind can’t hold conflicting emotions. Try it out. Just listen to the song below and watch your mood change for the better.
If a duet is your style, I dare you to listen to the great Aretha Franklin and George Michael singing I knew you were waiting for me and still remain in a funk.
For me, the song that always makes me feel good no matter how bad things may be is Neil Diamond’s Holly Holy. It’s such a special song and holds so much meaning for me that I have included the video with the lyrics. The next time you feel down stop by and listen to this song. You’ll be glad you did.
4. Have a Good Cry.
Shedding tears highly beneficial for health,reduces lethal consequences of depression
No, that’s not melodrama. Here’s the scoop. Medically, “tears act as safety valve by releasing excess stress hormones.”  The logical question is this: what happens if these hormones are unchecked and allowed to build up? Well, that’s when very nasty things can happen to your body and mind. In a report from The Baluchistan Times, Dr. Sanober, an expert on chronic illness, said, “Crying relieves stress,” and, she elaborated, “chronic stress can increase the risk of heart attacks, damage certain areas of the brain,contribute to digestive issues like ulcers and cause tension headaches and migraine beside other health issues.” 
You can have reflex tears that act to remove debris like smoke from your eyes. That’s not what we are talking about. You can also lubricate your tears. These are called continues tears, and they contain 98% water. What we are talking about are the third category of tears and they are called emotional tears. They contain stress hormones and other toxins. Thus, their job is to flush out the toxins out of your body. In sum, if there’s a reason to cry don’t hold back the tears. Consider this: “Men rarely cry that is why they get more angry and frustrated and consequently suicide rate is higher in men than in women…” 
I’ll be honest with you. I’m not a big fan of gossip. I have seen trash talk hurt good people and destroy a career. Good riddance is often what I said when I found out that someone was given the boot for gossiping about another worker. Also, tabloids, Twitter, and TMZ, have given gossip a nasty reputation. So, I felt I was in the right to say that people shouldn’t gossip. However, when it comes to relieving pain related stress, I was surprised to find out that gossip can be a very effective hack. Jack Levin,Ph.D., a professor of sociology and criminology at Northeastern University and coauthor of Gossip: The Inside Scoop, states: “… and with the exception of super-malicious rumormongering, sharing and receiving intel can offer a real boon to your emotional and physical well-being.” 
Also, a university of Michigan study concludes that gossip can lift your mood and reduce stress. 
In short, Gossip, when it’s not malicious, can make the gossiper feel as if they are part of the world. It can build their self-esteem and serve as a distraction from their worries and pain. When it’s good, it binds people and communities together. As most caregivers will tell you, isolation often worsens a pain sufferer’s stress and anxiety. Thus, the warm feeling you get from spending time with a friend and sharing stories about mutual acquaintances can uplift the spirit. Good gossip can indeed be one of the best hacks to relieve your pain related stress. So next time you feel stressed it’s perfectly fine to call a friend and share some good gossip, emphasis being on the good.
