How Do YOU #MoveAgainstMigraine?
How do YOU #MoveAgainstMigraine?
Yoga is my way to #MoveAgainstMigraine. It took me years to build up the stamina to be able to go back to a practice I had started years before becoming chronic. Yoga has helped me connect to my body and learn how to listen to what it is trying to tell me. The breathing techniques help me to remain calmer during rough attacks.
But IT IS NOT EASY! I can go weeks or months without stepping onto my mat. And sometimes I push myself too hard and can cause my pain levels to increase. I’ve learned to modify poses and know when to call it quits.
The American Migraine Foundation has a campaign called “Move Against Migraine.” I challenge you to share how you #MoveAgainstMigraine. Could be painting, sharing articles, joining a support group. Be proud of what you are able to accomplish despite having migraine disease. How do you #MoveAgainstMigraine?
PS- If you want to explore yoga and not pay for a class, I highly recommend these resources!

I’m so thrilled to share a third work of art by Lisa Benson, artist and writer for Migraine.com. Lisa says of this piece:
In an effort to encourage people with migraine to share their experiences through art, Allergan announces its Frames of Mind campaign. This interactive project invites artists to share their work to visually represent the impact that migraine can have on patients’ everyday lives.
