To sum it all up, migraines suck. There's nothing worse than having a list of things to do and you're hit with the worst headache of your life. While there are countless causes for having a headache, stress can be one of the biggest reasons for having one. Which means leaving things until the last minute is not the smartest thing to do. However, I can try to help you out with getting rid of these annoying headaches. I've struggled with migraines for as long as I can remember, so here are 10 remedies to use to get rid of a headache when you honestly cannot afford to have it:

1. Drink A Lot Of Water

Giphy

This may be a given but I cannot tell I the amount of times I have figured out that I was dehydrated and left with a terrible migraine. Please just drink water. FYI: if you're feeling thirty, you're already dehydrated!!

2. Find A Dark And Quiet Room

Giphy

Nothing's worse than having a headache in a bright and light room. Tuck yourself away in another room in the house and huddle under the covers! I also find that a sleep mask is very handy for this!

3. Put Some Ice On Your Head

Giphy

Just as if you would ice any other part of your body when it hurts, ice your head too! It definitely works for me, especially when your head is cold and your feet are wrapped up all nice and cozy.

4. Crack Your Neck Or Get A Massage

Giphy

Not everyone has the luxury of getting a massage but it's also good to get those knots out. Especially if you have a tension headache, you have to relieve that stress!

5. Frozen Coke Slushy!

Giphy

Might sound a little crazy but the caffeine of the coke and the coldness of the slushy is the perfect thing for your headache! It's a life changer.

6. Get Off Your Phone And Step Away From The TV

Giphy

Honestly, the best thing for you to do is catch up on sleep and just relax some more. Your body is under a lot of stress, just try and take it easy for a while.

7. Make Sure You Still Eat!

Giphy

Headaches can make you feel nauseated and make you loose all your appetite, but you still have to eat!! You can have a headache from not eating, and you're hurting yourself more by not doing it! I find myself guilty of this way too many times during exam season.

8. ASMR

Giphy

Okay, so this might not work for everyone, but I have learned that ASMR really does help my headaches, or at least helps me go to sleep. I use it as a form of meditation, especially because it is a guide for me and I don't really know how to just sit still and relax as a form of meditation.

9. Excedrin!!

Excedrin

Some people do not get the extreme migraines, but Excedrin's have saved me more than you think. I took some a couple of hours before my exam the other day and I was able to get through the exam when I didn't even see that as a possibility my head hurt so bad.

10. If It Gets Worse, See A Doctor

Giphy

Stress headaches are one thing, but you always want to make sure that nothings going on internally. Sometimes your doctor can help pinpoint what causes the pain or sometimes give you prescribed medication if your case fits it.

These Are 4 Proven Ways That Vaccines Cause Autism

Stock up on those essential oils.

Let's just start with the first (and main) point.

1. They don't.

Susan in your anti-vax group is not a scholarly source (despite her hours and hours of Google research).

2. But in case you still believe Susan...

Maybe you'll believe Autism Speaks who says, "Scientists have conducted extensive research over the last two decades to determine whether there is any link between childhood vaccinations and autism. The results of this research is clear: Vaccines do not cause autism."

3. And if Autism Speaks still didn't convince you...

Feel free to take a look at this comprehensive list of studies that all say that there is no relationship between vaccines such as the MMR vaccination and the development of autism.

4. But here's what you should know...

There have been a few studies lately that have shown that autism develops in utero aka before a baby is even born AND before a baby can even receive vaccinations.

Vaccinations have prevented COUNTLESS deaths and illnesses. Vaccination rates are continuing to fall and do you know what that means? Measles will make its way back. Whooping cough will come back. Rubella, mumps, and polio will come back and there will be no way to stop it.

So, now that you know that vaccines do not cause autism, you're welcome to go tell Susan from your anti-vax group that as well as tell her that the Earth isn't flat. But, don't forget to mention it to her that her essential oils and organic foods are not keeping her children safe from the measles or tuberculosis.

Vaccinate your children. And, besides, even IF vaccinations caused autism, wouldn't you rather have a child with a developmental disorder rather than a child who died from the measles?

The 5 Types of Retail Customers

A run-down on the many forms of customers you either encounter as a retail employee or are guilty of being.

We all get summer jobs or seasonal jobs at some place to get that extra cash when we find ourselves broke after spending $300+ on Ubers/Lyfts in under a month (possibly speaking from personal experience). This in turn led me to broaden my job searching horizons and led me to work at a fast food chain that goes by the name of 'Salsaritas' (ironic since my nickname is Salsa, also was not intentional) and currently a retail store at a local mall. So, I guess it's safe to say that I have come across a lot of different people with a whole lot of personality. Working in these types of industries, it can sometimes be really hard and pretty interesting. So voila, here we go:

1. The Always Angry Customer

media1.giphy.com

This is the customer that is constantly angry. They walk in pissed off and they want everyone else to know that they are pissed off. This type of customer also uses at least one of these following sentences: "Let me talk to your manager. Who's your manager?" or the "How long have you been working here for?" Honestly, there's not much you can do to help them other than try to just do what they ask for and get them the hell out of there as quickly as possible.

2. The Messy Customer

media0.giphy.com

Easily one of the most annoying types of customers (sorry). This person will walk and run their hands through an entire counter or rack full of perfectly folded clothes, unfold them, and then just leave them on the counter or on the floor. They also have the "it's fine, it's their job to fold them" mentality. Honestly though, how hard is it to put a jacket or shirt back on a hanger? And if you're this type of customer please, please, please, put what you found back where it came from. Sincerely, every retail employee ever.

3. The Super Nice Customer

This customer is god-send and thank god that they exist. They are the ones who you can just tell are genuinely good people. New at work and don't know how the hell to ring up a customer at a register? No worries, they'll wait there patiently, smile at you, and occasionally tell you that "you're doing great sweetie." They treat you like you're not just a retail employee and at the end of the day, you just wanna give them a hug for making your day feel less shitty.

4. The Talkative Customer

media3.giphy.com

There's two parts to this one. This type of customer is either talking on the phone while you're ringing them up at the register or is just trying to get to know literally everything there is to know about you. If they're on the phone, it's impossible to know if they're responding to you or to the person who they're on the phone with. The worst part is when they hold up one finger to signal to you that they'll be just a minute and leave you to just awkwardly stand in front of them while trying not to listen to their entire conversation. The other part is when they just want to get to know you which is cute and all until they're just trying to analyze your entire background, where you're from, what you're studying, etc. Luckily if you're like me who wasn't born in the U.S. with a very ethnic name, you just scored yourself a talkative customer. Well done and good luck getting out of the conversation!

5. The Last Minute Customer

media3.giphy.com

Imagine that you just did an 8 hour shift and right when you're about to clock out and head out to go home, you see a customer walking in literally a minute or two before the whole mall is about to close. They'll probably ask you if you're about to close even though they can see that there's not a single person inside there other than you. They'll also probably tell you that they know exactly what they're looking for. It's never true and get ready for that OT. But hey, on the bright-side, you'll get a fat pay-check.


So, the next time you find yourself at a mall...Remind yourself to pick up something you might've accidentally dropped, keep in mind that workers are human beings too, and kindness goes a long way because at the end of the day, that employee could be one of your loved ones.

Until next time,

Salsa.
