Embracing All Of Life: O40A Pain KILLERS

Pain is simply an unavoidable thing in life. When we embrace our pain, suddenly it isn’t so painful. 

O40A Pain KILLERS

 

As Alphas, we embrace the pain.

We don’t tone it down with numbing painkillers that slowly eat away at our souls, while big Pharma profits.

 

America consumes an overwhelming amount of painkillers relative to the rest of the world; the United States, which has less than 5% of the world’s population, is responsible for taking about 80% of the world’s supply of prescription opioids (Manchikanti & Singh, 2008).

 

This is one thing I had to learn the hard way.

I was working out constantly, putting my body through long shifts at work and then 2-3 hour sessions at the gym.

And it led me to pop 5-6 Advils PER DAY.

No wonder my body was shutting down…

It wasn’t getting the triggers the body sends when something is not right…

I was shutting that part of me off.

And it completely changed my mindset around the pain in my body.

Pain is a good thing.

Pain is the body’s way of communicating with us.

It’s what we need to shed fat and to grow muscle

It’s what we need to know when we’re overdoing it or not pushing hard enough.

Alpha men embrace the pain.

We use it for the tool it is…

A way of communicating

So if you’ve been pill-popping and trying to reduce those DOMS with pills…

Throw them out.

Take ice baths.

Epsom salt baths.

Do more foam rolling and mobility work.

Go inwards rather than seeking external painkillers.

It’s time we listen to our bodies and embrace the pain.

 

Let’s GET IT DONE!
