Do You Suffer From Migraines?

Do You Suffer From Migraines?

We all get headaches from time to time, yet migraines take discomfort to a whole new level. Because the specific cause of migraines varies among people, the common advice is to identify triggers, avoid alcohol, and take medication.

Yet, there may be other causes that are much less talked about. Two potential causes are high stress and unexpressed anger. On today’s “Motivation Monday,” Tim Shurr, MA, shares three tips for finding relief from head pain.

1. Practice Stress-Reduction Techniques. High stress levels increase physical tension and evoke self-medicating activities such as smoking, drinking alcohol, and eating processed or spicy foods. These activities are known to active or aggregate headaches.

2. Resolve Hidden Anger. Unexpressed hurts or anger can build up metaphorical “pressure” in one’s head. We’ve helped many chronic migraine sufferers to end their cycle of pain through releasing repressed anger in a gentle way.

3. Get Restful Sleep. Lack of quality sleep is a main culprit of migraines. Whether its hormonal changes, tossing and turning, or difficulty falling asleep, all of these can be improved with the right sleeping program.
