Does your back hurt, either on occasion or a lot of the time? There are lots of possible reasons, but the most common ones have to do with stress, either general stress or putting too much stress on the back.
Now why is stress causing back pain? My chiropractor told me that the three T’s are the main causes for back pain:
Trauma, Toxins, and Thoughts!
Yup, that’s right. Thoughts. Specifically thoughts that cause you stress. So that’s a good place to start when it comes to relieving back pain.
How can you think thoughts that produce less stress?
It’s much like the stuff I’ve been writing about all along:
1) Think about what you want and avoid thoughts about what you do not want.
2) When you catch yourself thinking about things you’d rather NOT have in your life, ask yourself, so what DO I want?
3) Focus on taking deep, slow breaths
4) Go for walks in nature. Focus on enjoying the walks and your surroundings.

More about saving your back:
You can also do a number of things that take care of your back. They can strengthen it, and they can take the pressure off of it, and they can minimize ongoing pressure.
One thing that puts a surprising amount of pressure on your back is sitting too much.
So get up, move around, and even lie down for a bit.
And strengthen your abs! Strong abs will do wonders for alleviating back pain.
Finally, a supplement that I have found very helpful for back pain:
Astaxanthin! It’s a potent anti-inflammatory antioxidant, and it works especially well for back pain.
