|Choosing a distraction
It is important to choose a distraction that is interesting to you, one that will allow you to relax and enjoy it.
It can be as simple as watching a favorite television show, having a conversation with a friend, or listening to music.
You may also try singing, either out loud or in your head.
And some people find visual images to be good distractions.
Any of these simple actions can help distract your mind from the pain.
Anything that keeps your mind occupied is an effective distraction.
