So you wanted to know about brain freezes, also known as an ice-cream headache or cold-rush.  A brain freeze happens when you quickly eat or drink something that is very cold, like ice cream or a popsicle.  When the cold liquid or solid comes in contact with the top of your mouth, and then suddenly goes away when you swallow it, the sudden temperature changes causes some of the blood vessels in your head to tighten.  This gives you a brief headache.

To avoid a brain freeze, try slowly eating cold food or drink.  If you already have a brain freeze, try pressing your tongue to the top of your mouth to warm it up.

We hope that you have a warm and cozy day!  Remember to use kind words, do kind things, and think kind thoughts.  We Love You.
