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.
Holiday Headaches……Let’s Say No!
We say it every year — where did the time go? We are already past Halloween and now Thanksgiving is sneaking up on us…and Christmas is not far behind.
Do you find the holiday season — although fun and exciting — a time of stress and busyness? Do you even find yourself suffering with more migraines as a result of the added stress?
Unfortunately, stress is one of the most prevalent migraine triggers there is. As the holiday season gets closer and close, so our lives become more and more hectic. As you well know, stress is something migraine sufferers would rather avoid, but at this busy time of year, that is sometimes pretty impossible. But, as a migraine sufferer both of us need to find ways to deal with that stress so that the frequency and severity of migraine attacks can be lessened, and we can better enjoy this festive time of year.
