It shouldn’t be seen as a four letter word.

What is Pain? Is it a signal? Is it a sensory response? Is it an emotional experience? Does it mean that we are always causing damage?  

In this episode Physiotherapist, Pilates instructor and pain advocate Alex O’neil-King and myself have an in-depth conversation on what pain is how it can be perceived and its common misconceptions. And when treating/ addressing pain itself are we missing some vital points?

Alex’s take home tips when addressing pain

  • Set tangible positive goals

A great way to measure your success through the journey of addressing the end goal which for most will be to be out of pain. And celebrating the small wins along the way to reassure your yourself that you are doing something positive for your body.

  • Accept that the road to recovery won’t be linear

Having a set back or “flare” is normal and docent always mean that we have done something wrong or back to square one and that we can still move forward from there.

Ep. 022 – Knowing your worth – The Self-Worth Movement w/ Farah Mak The Let me take a Selfie Podcast

Initially the self-wort moment was created from a poem Farah wrote called she shines which was love letter to herself and a call to arms. Farah even had a vision to turn the poem into a short film, knowing she could touch and change many lives. After years, her vison came to light with the short film now in pre-production as well as a feature film around multiple stories to be released in 2022. Self-worth can be stifled by many things; trauma, abandonment, bullying, sickness, grief and so much more. Through Farah’s road to self-validation was not easy. Regaining her self-worth was transformational. It helped her achieve hopes and dreams, and she wants to share this with women and girls around the world and to empower and understand their true worth.   For show notes, visit: https://benjaminrashleigh.com/ep-022-knowing-your-worth-the-self-worth-movement/
