When you’re in pain, sometimes mornings can be the hardest part of the day. Here is my advice, based on what I’ve personally found helpful:

Part 3: Heat and cardio: Get your blood flowing
Part 4: Beat the pain cycle: take pain medications in the morning
I’m also a huge fan of coffee. I love it so much I wrote a whole post about it:
