Calming Music for Migraine is a Great Distraction

I use calming music for migraine distraction. I had two days of low pain this week. The first day, I noticed myself singing loudly with my daughter on the way to school. Mornings aren’t good for me and by the time I get both of my kids ready for school and get yelled at by everyone in my household for various things, I’m usually not in the singing mood by drop off time. But I noticed that, on that day, I was singing loudly. I’m not allowed to sing Frozen because my daughter believes she is Elsa. No one else is allowed to sing her part. BUT, I am allowed to harmonize with her. I always love to sing and am good enough to sing alto to her tiny soprano voice.

Calming Music for Migraine

There aren’t many sounds I love more than my kids singing in the back seat and being part of it is a small joy I have in life. The second day, I had already planned a fun play date with my friends and was thrilled that I did not have to cancel and would actually be able to enjoy it. The drive out was gorgeous!  It was 80 degrees, blue skies, sun shining, and a drive through huge trees of changing Fall leaves.

Is there any better time to sing than cruising in your car with the windows down on a low pain day? We listened to music that all of us could sing to and be whatever part we wanted.   It may sound small but it’s the small things in life. For someone who loves singing with her kids, enjoying the sun and a nice breeze plus the stunning change of seasons, it was one of those moments that Migraine didn’t dictate my life.  Let’s be grateful for small things and low pain days.

    Reblogged this on My Migraine Life and commented:

    In honor of Adel coming out with her new album tomorrow I thought I’d reblog my singing post. I LOVE Adel! Although her song does not have meaning to the migraine world it’s not always what is said but how it is felt. And wow do I feel this song. Thank you Adel for not being naked in your video like so many woman/girls feel they need to be. Thank you for singing songs that I feel inside and am lifted by. Thank you for giving me music I can sing to when my migraine lifts enough for me to sing. Music is powerful therapy!
