Publisher's Summary

"Mindfulness and compassion practices should be in everybody's toolbox for a happier and healthier life. [This] book is essential reading for providers who treat chronic illnesses and for those suffering from them." (Arianna Huffington)

Pain can be a big, unwieldy box that we struggle to carry all day. But what if we could put down this box, unpack it, and tackle the contents one by one? Outsmart Your Pain is Dr. Christiane Wolf's radically clear, evidence-based guide to relieving chronic pain with mindfulness, complete with 20 easy guided meditations and self-compassion practices, including:

  • Rewriting the "pain story" you tell yourself
  • Practicing loving acceptance of your body as it is
  • Mindfully working through negative emotions
  • Strengthening your inner and outer support systems

By separating your pain from the stressful thoughts and troubled feelings that come with it, you can lay down your burden and live with joy.

This book has helped me so much!

I have been struggling with nerve pain since February, and the idea of mindfulness for coping with pain is a new idea for me and the author does a fantastic job of laying out different strategies. A dear friend of mine is a former student of the author, and she recommended this book. I'm so glad she did! I find the author's voice to be so comforting, and I love how the chapters are laid out. If I have just seven or eight minutes at work, I can choose a meditation that fits the time and I go back to work refreshed. I have been listening to This book since I purchased it two weeks ago. I finished it several days ago but I keep re-listening to parts of it and doing the meditations. This is a tool I will keep for life. Thank you so much Dr. Wolf!

Simple but Helpful

I'm new to audio book due to eye pain, and accidentally listen to 10% happier podcast where the author become a guest there, I decided to bought this audiobook and did not regret it. The author voice is very soothing very compassionate, the meditation is not complicated and bring me to an ease, I think I will come back to this book again and again, even If hopefully I won't be no longer in pain.
