Most of us in the Northern Hemisphere are about to spread ourselves over 14 or 15 hours of daylight on June 21, officially know as the longest day of the year. And most of our bodies delight in the sun’s extended rays. But not everyone.
Too much light can be horrible for those who suffer from serious headaches like migraines. Which is why June 21 is recognized each year as Migraine Solidarity Day, a time when migraine non-sufferers are supposed to give a nod to those who do suffer.
For the third year, the Association of Migraine Disorders is holding its Shades For Migraine campaign. On June 21 “Show You Care, Wear a Pair” asks people to wear sunglasses, all day, everywhere, to acknowledge those who benefit from the dark.
