3 – Breathing techniques
Sounds doolay-ey, but simple focusing on my breath and acknowledging that my head seemed to be hurting helped. I envisioned a cracked egg running over my head as the tension broke, which genuinely seemed to lessen the pain when it got excruciating.
4 – Crystal healing
We’re about to get slightly more woo-woo here. This past weekend I went to a crystal fair, and purchased some amethyst. My friend suggested that due to the new moon and energetic shifts (hey – if the moon can influence the tides, I’m a big believer that it can influence us too) that my migraine might be related to some information my body was not yet able to download and process.
Apparently Amethyst is great at downloading wisdom, spiritual downloads and dreams – so I bought some, programmed it, and I swear on Mother Earth, the migraine has all but vanished when I’m in its vicinity!
5 – I’ve been getting 8+ hours of sleep
Sleep is the single best way to help your body rest, recover and repair cells – so I’m not about to knock it, stay up late, stare at a computer screen – when we all know how damaging that can be! Instead, I choose to listen to my body and take care of it when it is screaming for care and attention.
Anyone else got any ways they shift a migraine? I’m all ears!
