Migraine is unprovoked headache lasting 4 to 72 hours, severe enough to markedly restrict or even prohibit routine daily activity and accompanied by nausea or light and sound sensitivity.

Migraine attacks arose because of the changes in the blood vessels that supply the head and brain, aura when it occurred was attributed to the narrowing of arteries with neurologic symptoms resulting from impaired blood flow and the throbbing, sickening pain of migraine due to the widening of the affected and other vessels. Some believe that migraine is probably genetic in origin and that the disorder represents a genetically induced hypersensitivity that affects neurons the brain cells located in the central nervous system. If an affected neuron is triggered by a change in the external environment like dropping in barometric pressure or internal environment like sudden drop in estrogen level, that neuron may active and triggering its neighboring neurons to join in, induce the pathways in the brain that normally transmit head pain to produce the familiar symptoms of a migraine attack.

Improve Daily Habits

Good lifestyle choices may not only help ease your transitional time but also promote health as we age. Regular activity help prevents weight gain, reduce heavy bleeding, cramping and improve mood and sleep. Alternate between strength-training to maintain muscle mass and vigorous aerobic exercises to burn calories. Aim for at least 30 minutes most of the week. Reduce saturated fat in your diet and include more calcium rich foods such as low fat dairy, spinach and white beans to stay healthy. Also cutting calories because after menopause or as we grow older metabolism slows, shifting hormones cause extra weight to settle in your midsection and you lose muscle mass, so you need fewer calories to stay the same weight.

I do know that to get traffic and good search engine ranking you first need good content that is updated regularly. You need a website that looks nice and is user friendly. But most of all you need to know how to use market your website on the internet. If you are like me you do not specialize in marketing. For this I turned to the internet like most of us would do to find a company that has Internet marketing services available.

I know I need a company that had experience with content creation, local search marketing, video marketing, website marketing, SEO services and even able to assist in a link building campaign. Each one of these items are important for different reasons. You need good content to keep your readers interested. If you use videos on your website, you need to make sure you choose the correct ones that are related to the content of your website. You need to be able to submit your website to search engines on a regular basis. The fastest way is by a good SEO system. You also need to find other related websites that you can link with. This is where a good link building campaign comes into play. So if you have a website or you are thinking about starting one. Please take the time to do your research first. This will save you a lot of time and headache in the future.

Make Sure Your Fridge Shuts Every Time

Electricity is expensive when we use it overtime. On game days your husband and his buddies are always going to the fridge during commercial breaks. But with all the commotion on TV, they don't always remember to close the door for the fridge. To prevent energy waste and spoiled food, lift the front of the fridge 1 inch and wedge two 1/4 inch thick blocks of scrap wood under each side. This creates a slight upward tilt that allows gravity to pull the door shut automatically, locking in the cold air.

How To Unseal Envelope Without Damaging It

Sometimes mistakes happens so that we can learn from it. Just because you mistakenly sealed your niece's birthday card without enclosing the gift card it doesn't mean you have to dip back into your stationery stash. A better bet, Place the envelope in the freezer for two hours. The sub-zero temperature will cause the envelope's glue to become brittle and crack, splitting the seal that secures the flap without any tears. After inserting the gift card, hold the envelope over the steam of a tea kettle for ten seconds. This will melt the glue so you can reseal the envelope with ease, then it solve your problem.

How To Get Him To Help Out

Sometimes honey-do lists aren't the best approach to getting your man to lend a helping hand. Many men grew up watching their mothers tend to the household, so when their wives assign tasks it triggers a defensive thoughts like "That's not my job." A better way would be to compliment him on how strong he looks carrying the laundry basket up the stairs or thank him with a kiss after he does the dishes. Linking the chores with sex appeal reassures him that he's not giving up his masculinity by contributing to the household.

Back To School Supplies List

When it comes to writing essentials, teachers say, don't waste your money on feather pencils, light-up pencil sharpeners, or pretty erasers that don't work. And for organizational helpers, keep in mind that expensive folders with multiple pockets and zippers are often too bulky to fit in desks. Better to stick with more streamlined(and cheaper) models. Here is a list of things your student should have when they go back to work.

* Glue sticks (at least three for the year)
* Scissors (blunt ended for younger kids, pointed for older ones)
* Ballpoint pens
* No. 2 pencils (Stick with this classic to avoid classroom competition over whose writing utensil is the coolest — or most impractical.)
* Colored pencils
* A pencil sharpener (hand-held with a top to collect shavings)
* A large pink eraser (The old-fashioned ones do the best erasing.)
* Water-based markers
* A four-ounce bottle of white glue
* Highlighters (These are probably unnecessary for kids in kindergarten through second grade.)
* Spiral-bound or composition notebooks
* A three-ring binder
* Loose-leaf notebook paper (Teachers can be picky about paper. Schools usually supply specially ruled handwriting paper to help younger children with letter formation. Older children use wide-ruled paper, and some middle school students will need the college-ruled variety.)
* Pocket folders (If you get a folder with two pockets, label one "keep at home" and the other "bring to school" to help your child organize his papers.)
* Printer paper and ink cartridges (for your home computer)
* A ruler with English and metric measurements
* Scotch tape
* A stapler
* A sturdy, supportive backpack (Some schools do not permit rolling backpacks because of space considerations, so check with your school before purchasing one.)

Eye & Makeup Tips

They said that it was our eyes that captured attention. I have tips that helps alluring and seductive eyes that might attract somebody.

* Always moisturize - use a good eye treatment to minimize appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and to help reduce puffiness and dark circles. This is a must for perfect peepers with or without eye makeup.

* Use an eye color base - Most cosmetic lines offer a primer that can be applied to the lid before color. A primer will help prevent your eye color from creasing as well as bring out the true color.

* Invest in brushes instead of using the sponge tip applicators - The key to beautiful eyes is the blending that can be achieved with the use of brushes. If you invest in good brushes, they will last just about forever if you take care of them. You'll find that it is easier to control the application of your cosmetics. If you have dinky eyelashes, use a lash primer to make lashes bigger, thicker and fuller. Just a couple of quick sweeps before applying mascara can make big difference.

* Create your own eyeliner with eyeshadow - Using an angled brush, dampen the bristles before dipping it into a deep eye color such as navy, brown or black. Gently run the angle brush along the lash-line like you would with a pencil. Color will appear as smooth line but as a smooth but a little softer looking than a pencil. This is a great way to enhance a smokey look.

* Lastly, don't ignore your eyebrows - Bad brows can blow the look and no brows can look even worse. Before you begin to apply your eye makeup, do a quick clean up with a pair tweezers. After applying color, pencil in any bare or thin spots followed by an eyebrow set to keep them perfectly placed all day long.
