Pencil for Headaches
When you are anxious or stressed, you naturally start clenching your teeth and jaw. This results in a muscle strain of the muscle responsible for connecting the temple to the jaw. When this muscle is under stress, a tension headache can occur. Simply putting a pencil between the teeth can be helpful because it causes you to naturally relax that muscle. Just make sure that you are not biting down on the pencil. You just want to hold the pencil in place with your teeth.
