Sometimes there's an easy solution!

Recently I was walking Daisy in the local woods when I encountered a friend out walking their own dogs. I noticed that they did not look comfortable, and it emerged that they had back pain. Their plan was to do some stretching, but I noticed how tense their posture was and we had a brief discussion about how the body naturally goes into a protective spasm when in pain, but sometimes it is too great a reaction or it carries on too long and so it helps to relax and explore how the body is actually feeling. I gave some relaxation tips to help with this, and we went on our ways.

A short while later I got a text - my tips had worked! Sometimes all that is needed is to let go of the tension and relax. Of course it isn't always this easy, but it's always worth considering.
