What a headache!

With today’s always-on-the-go lifestyle, long crazy work hours and stress from any number of sources, we all fall victim to a nagging headache sometimes.

I was reading an article on this subject today and here are 8 simple tricks to heal that pain and get you back to enjoying your day!

1. Relaxing and Resting

I know that’s usually a whole lot easier said than done, but even just 15 minutes of quiet time can make a huge difference.

2.  Ice Pack

When I read this one I couldn’t believe that I’d never thought of that before.  Now it just seems like kind of a no-brainer.

3.  Moderate Exercise

Yeah right!  My head is pounding and you want me to exercise?  Are you kidding me?!  Well actually, as it turns out, it makes perfect sense.  Release the tension caused by the headache and voila, the headache goes away.

4.  Dietary Supplements

I’ve been doing some pretty extensive research on dietary supplementation and the benefits that it has for your body, and have found that sometimes you get headaches simply because your body is missing some key nutrients.

5.  Hydration

This one should come as no surprise.  Drinking the proper amount of water every day plays a significant role in our overall health by flushing out all the yukkies.

6.  Pressure Points / Gentle Massage

This actually works very well, but instead of massaging your temples (where it hurts), grab your hand.  That’s right, your hand.  Grab it in the meaty part between your thumb and first finger and massage there.  That’s where your headache pressure points are!  Who knew!

7.  Take A Hot Shower

I’d never heard that one before, but it makes perfect sense.  The hot water will not only get your blood flowing, but it will also relax you.  Want a better result?  Try using a soothing lavender shower gel.

8.  Diet:  Multiple Small Meals

Here again, this goes back to the dietary supplementation.  Maybe you have a headache because your body just really needs some nourishment.  If that’s the case, head on over and check out my yummy recipes.
