Headaches….they are so incredibly common and can be brought on by the littlest things! Stress, noise exposure, straining your eyes, consuming too much caffeine, consuming too much sugar, dehydration and lack of sleep, are just a few examples of things that cause headaches. You can take an OTC med to alleviate the pain, or there are a few natural things you can try…..
🔹 Ease pressure on your scalp. Let your hair down, or remove your hat or eyewear
🔹 Dim lights, set your phone down and turn off the computer
🔹Massage your temples
🔹 Eat foods rich in magnesium. Low levels of magnesium can cause headaches
🔹 Take vitamin B-12
🔹 Try a hot or cold compress
🔹 Drink lots of water
🔹 Lay down and shut your eyes
🔹 Try reflexology
🔹 Go on a walk or try yoga
I have a habit of pulling my hair up too tight and giving myself a headache. I know better but I still do it every time! A few of these work for me, if just letting my hair down doesn’t work.
