I use heating pad and apply it to where I am hurting....this works well unless I am in one of those stages where I am "hot" and sweaty..then it becomes uncomfortable. Also a warm bath helps with pain most of the time as it does you. Cold weather it awful and I am sooo glad that winter is on the way out!

For some reason, most of the time, if I use heat it causes more problems than it solves. It soothes initially and then my muscles SPASM... makes me very emoticon ...
I do like a nice WARM bath, or a COOLER hot tub (99 degrees is my top comfort level! I know, just being contrary! LOL)

"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." thanks, Walter P. Chrysler. I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm!
P.S. I looked up enthusiasm, and it says the root words mean God within... interesting...!

Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Life belongs to the energetic.' But you don't have to be frenetic and hyper--some energy is quiet and steady, like a heartbeat... and that works too! LOL

It sounds like a great thing to do unless one has a "body heat" problem:):) I seem to like the cool sheets to crawl into but it might be a solution for me while sitting with the computer. Thanks for a good idea.


Slow & steady makes a winner of us. Even if we hit pitfalls, get up. Know that a new day is right around the corner.
Try to be all that you can be. Work at it a day at a time.

This may not seem like much but I recently bought a heated mattress pad. This thing helps quite a bit!!! Whenever I am hurting i turn on the pad and let it get hot and climb in for a little while.
