Dealing with Stress Headaches

There are several kinds of headaches.  While many people say they suffer from migraines, the most common headache is called a stress headache.  Causes include stress, skipping meals, irregular sleep habits, or certain foods.  One of the first things many people do after suffering a headache is reach for a pain reliever in the medicine cabinet, but that's not always the best idea.  In fact, there are other simple things you can do.  Lie down in a dark, quiet room and try to sleep.  Also, try to figure out what led to the headache.  In addition, you should try to avoid things that are problematic and bother you.  One idea is a headache log where you can record when the headache first appears, the time each one happens, and where the pain is felt.  You get the idea.  Its common sense and it's trying to figure out the best way to approach a problem that can be chronic.

Kids Can Be Affected by the Economy

Kids can be affected by the economy especially if parents talk about it.  With things going bad financially, parents need to be honest with their children, but not over stress them.  The kids do not need to know if there are major issues and problems.  They need to be able to realistically look at things and evaluate what's going on.  It's important when it comes to the economy that you don't overdo it; that you don't try to get into a situation where you stress those children out.  It's very important that they have a chance to be children and to really live as kids.
