Love Thy Neighbor…and Yourself: A Beginner’s Guide to Setting Boundaries and Decreasing Migrain
The Bible famously declares, “Love thy neighbor as thyself.” But in order to do that well, you must be able to love yourself first. Setting boundaries can help you do just that. It’s a skill that takes practice and patience, but it can also be the key to decreasing your migraines. Let’s take a look at what establishing boundaries is all about, how it might help reduce your migraine symptoms, and some tips on getting started.

What Does Establishing Boundaries Mean?
Setting boundaries means taking care of yourself by standing up for what matters to you and saying no when needed. It also involves recognizing when you need more space or time away from people and situations that become too overwhelming or stressful. This can include everything from learning how to say no without feeling guilty to making time for yourself each day when needed.

Why Establishing Boundaries Can Help Reduce Migraines
Migraines are often caused by stress, and one of the best ways to reduce stress is by setting healthy boundaries in your life. When you start practicing this skill, it will help reduce your cortisol levels (the hormone released during periods of stress) which can lead to fewer migraines. It will also give you more control over the demands placed on your time, allowing you to better manage your own energy so that you don’t become overwhelmed and stressed out too easily.

Tips for Getting Started With Establishing Boundaries
The first step is recognizing when it’s time for a boundary or break from something or someone. Then practice using assertive language when making requests or expressing needs—this will help others understand where you stand while still showing respect for their needs as well. Finally, make sure that you give yourself permission to say no without guilt—other people may not always agree with your decisions but that doesn't mean they have the right to make you feel bad about them!

Establishing healthy boundaries is an important skill that can significantly impact our lives both mentally and physically; particularly those who suffer from migraines due to high levels of stress in their lives. By taking the time to learn how to set appropriate limits in different areas of our lives we can begin reducing our migraine symptoms while also increasing our self-love and self-care! So if you're ready for a change, start setting those boundaries today!
