Relax Your Head With These Simple Techniques

Are you aware of your own breathing patterns? If so, you are a step ahead of many others and you may find it easier to learn how to relax and cope with migraines and headaches.

Knowing when there are changes in your breathing patterns can help you relax. For example, changes in emotion often disrupt your breathing patterns. If you are a person who tends to be anxious, you might find yourself holding your breath without even being immediately aware of that change. On the other hand, some people who are depressed tend to sigh and speak in a low-pitched voice as they exhale.

You may not always be aware of your breathing patterns, but now I have mentioned them, perhaps the next time this happens you will be more aware of what is going on and move quickly to the relaxation portion.

No Holiday Migraines…..No Holiday Stress!

It’s true – the majority of us look forward to the holidays. Sometimes though, as a migraine sufferer, the holidays can be a time of stress and headaches….often leading to an increase in migraines. So in a way, does that sometimes make you dread the holidays – the added pressure, the stress, the running from here to there to get everything done – and the resulting migraines?

Don’t give up on the holidays – you can look forward to this time of year without the dread and anxiety often involved. There are many things we can do for ourselves to reduce or avoid episodes of stress; not only reducing migraine pain, but also giving us some control over our migraine patterns, restoring some control over our lives – control which we are often robbed of due to migraine patterns.

5 Simple Migraine-Relief Tips.
If you are a migraine sufferer, you don’t need to be told that migraines are often accompanied by nausea and/or vomiting, sensitivity to light, sensitivity to noise, along with other symptoms – and all ending with throbbing, intense pain which is generally on one side of the head. You may also experience the aura associated with migraine – like a warning signal prior to the actual migraine beginning. An aura can include flashing lights, wavy lines, tingling and visual disturbances as well as other symptoms. Some of us also have problems with the minds, such as an inability to focus and a feeling of “fuzziness.”  

Although we all have a slightly unique set of symptoms and pain levels, whatever the degree and extent of your symptoms and pain, you are fully aware of how debilitating migraines are and how they affect your lifestyle and ability to function properly. 

Autumn Is Here–Are You Suffering With Seasonal Migraines?

Autumn Is Here–Are You Suffering With Seasonal Migraines?

Autumn is here – are you suffering with seasonal migraines?
Fall is here! Ah those cooler days and nights that many of us love. Of course, autumn varies from state-to-state and country-to-country. Here in Florida, our fall consists of temperatures in the 80s. Still hot and often muggy. Still, there is also a difference in the morning temperature and as autumn progress, we have less humidity. It’s hard for us in Florida to think that some parts of the U.S. and the world are already experiencing snow – even though it’s only October. 

With the arrival of fall pretty most places are experiencing cooler temperatures, less humidity, windier days — and for some migraine sufferers, more migraines and headaches.

Are you intimately aware of that feeling of isolation when it comes to migraines? Have you ever really thought about it before – that you feel isolated and alone when you have a migraine?

I think of the times in the past when I had such excruciating migraines and have had to forego social activities and other types of engagements. Yet, there are also family times in your own home that you can miss out on.
