The IMAK Pain Relief Eye Mask started out as a simple, random stocking stuffer my husband received for Christmas, and over the years, it has become an everyday usage and repeat item in our home. I will not consider another eye mask from now on. You can store it in the freezer or heat it in the microwave. It’s just amazing!
Maybe you’re asking, “Why would you have to repeat buying an eye mask?”
Well…my little things (children) discovered they like the luxury of having eye masks when they sleep…view my video below to see how I really feel about that.
It started so innocent…so gradual…and then BAM! I notice myself buying a second one for my youngest on Amazon. Now it’s part of their night regimen: brush teeth, read story, get eye masks from the freezer, sing “bad dreams, bad dreams, go away, go away, good dreams, good dreams, come to stay, come to stay” song, followed by a sometimes prayer, and then pretend to be interested in going to sleep.
I actually just bought another one of these eye masks this week for myself, because I’m tired of wishing I had one when a severe headache comes on. It is apart of my the-only-way-to-get-rid-of-my-headache process. You know how everyone seems to have their own little ailment remedies that work for them and swear by them….honey and lemon for sore throats, licorice for a callus???, duct tape for warts??, windex for anything…just kidding….you’ve seen My Big Fat Greek Wedding, right??
Well on the days that I have a full on pounding headache, I’ve concluded these steps are the only way I’ll be successful in relieving the terribleness that are headaches. (Keep in mind, I’m not talking about migraines. Migraine sufferers, I really feel for you. So sorry.) And, while this is probably obvious, I feel the need to state I am NOT a medical professional people!
Step 1 I drink a full glass of water.
Step 2 I take two excedrin extra strength with another full glass of water
Step 3 I take a hot shower and make sure I spend time letting the water pressure hit my entire head and eyes
Step 4 I get my trusted eye mask out of the freezer. The absolute best eye mask I have ever found
Step 5 I get settled into bed, lay as still as possible, and let the eye mask and medicine do it’s job
So, there you have it. A product recommendation and a how-to reference for a headache remedy. My blog posts are getting quite advanced. 🙂
I’d love to know if you have any home remedies for your sufferings. Sometimes, the weirdest stuff actually works!
