Cindy Chmielewski:

How about pain?  Ways of dealing with whether it's back pain or any type of bone pain.  Anyone have suggestions?  

So mindfulness definitely has helped with my pain as well.  I seem to be able to kind of forget about it for a bit.  Another thing that really for me, I'm in love with my heating pad, so I find for my back at the end of the day I just need to sit on it, so I'll have the air conditioner blaring so I can actually sit on my heating pad and kind of get some relief that way.
