SO I have to call my mom at 5:30am this morning, because I am a single mom and have no help but my parents. THIS morning Emma was up at 4 am crying non stop for about 2 hours. She has been sick with a fever still.  I get bad migraines and they hurt last one I ended up in the hospital for it this time I am trying not to go. SO what do I do to relax any tips?? Let me in so I can start them today.

One way I have learned to relax (I used to get bad migraines, but haven't in years) 

....when I feel a tiny bit of stress or a headache coming on....I take a few minutes and do this exercise...I sit down or lie down and start by telling myself to relax my face muscles. It is amazing how many muscles in your face, jaw, shoulders, neck that are so tensed up , its no wonder I was getting headaches from holding my facial, and shoulder muscles so tense....so I take at least five minutes and relax those muscles and breathe slow and even...if bad thoughts come to my mind or if the kids were screaming I would just keep repeating the number one each time I blew out a breathe....(if you can hear the kids screaming , I came to know they are alright and they can wait for me)...

Just that little exercise did amazing results for me.....all the tension would go away and sometimes I would have to do this three times a day or more, but the migraines went totally away.
