Headache Migraine Relief, Stress

Are you ready for some exercise for stress and anxiety relief?

If you feel stressed out, feel burned out, irritated and anxious or  stressed-out-woman

suffer from stress headaches, you are not alone!

I would like to share with you these three simple exercises to help you to relax and get rid of stress headaches.

1. Try this breathing exercise and incorporate it into your daily routine:

Every hour, or even more frequently if possible, close your eyes and breath deeply for a minute.

Try to focus on nothing but your breathing.  Feel your abdomen go in and out as air enters and leaves the deepest corners of your lungs.

This simple exercise has a powerful effect on your autonomic nervous system, promotes relaxation and emotional balance.

2. With your thumb and index finger, gently pull down and out along the edge of your lobe starting at mid-ear, working your way down to the bottom to activate more than hundred acupressure points each ear has. it helps release endorphins to reduce your anxiety.

3. Squeeze the groove between the thumb and index finger of your left hand with the thumb and index finger of your right hand for a minute just when you feel your stress headache is coming. Switch hands and repeat the exercise.

Let us be stress smart if we want to feel and look fabulous all year around, shall we?

Breathe, smile and be happy.
