Soothe a ten­sion headache in sec­onds

First For Women - - Smart You Solutions -

The next time your head starts pound­ing af­ter a stress­ful day, try this to put an end to the pain: Place a pen­cil in be­tween your teeth (with­out bit­ing down) and hold it there for a minute or two. Stress causes you to sub­con­sciously clench your jaw, which can lead to ten­sion headaches. But hold­ing the pen­cil in your mouth this way forces your jaw into a relaxed po­si­tion, re­duc­ing the ten­sion and quickly quelling the pain.
