1. Remember to breath deeply. Have your ever noticed that when you are stressed that your shoulders begin to creep up toward your ears? If you are aware at that moment you probably also notice that you are barely bearthing--deepending on the stress level. If you continue to shut down your breath this can be the beginning of a migraine headache.
