Why ‘putting up with’ an injury could be a bad idea
If you’ve ever been injured, you’ll know it’s all you can think about.
But did you know that chronic pain could actually change the way you think?
Well, according to a study in mice carried out by researchers at Stanford University, it seems long-term pain can alter the part of your brain that controls motivation – which could explain why those who suffer from chronic pain become less active and often feel unmotivated. Formerly fit bods can become crisp-eating couch potatoes in a the blink of an eye when motivation hits a real low!
So, don’t put up with persistent pain – get it checked out and get your motivation back.
