Urbanite #5: Increase your pain threshold

Another post in the Urbanite series; how to increase your pain threshold. A real unique post in this series demonstrating how certain bodily techniques help you withstand pain, from what I am led to believe these little activites genuinly help in certain 'sticky situations'.

  9. I've noticed that hook breathing works, but so does focusing on a point in time when you know the pain will be gone. That helps me the most.
