There are tons of different types of headaches, there’s the headache from the night before (yes we have all been there!), stress headaches, strain headaches, tension headaches, cluster headaches and migraines. The list is endless! Most of us just pop a few pills and have a quiet lie down, but if  you are suffering from ongoing, regular headaches that wrap your life in misery – it’s’ time to combat it.

As with all aches and pains it’s your bodies way of telling you that something isn’t quite right. It’s not the time to turn a blind eye and a deaf ear, our bodies are super intelligent so heed those warning signals for a better chance of nipping those problems in the bud before they bloom!

The first step is recognizing what kind of headache you have. Perhaps it’s as simple as not getting the right amount of sleep, straining your eyes, reacting to stress and other lifestyle habits that are easy to change. Maybe you are often the victim of a migraine onslaught which can leave you holed up in a dark room for hours. There are a few tricks of the trade you can employ to put your headache woes behind you, just keep reading.

Jot it Down

Keep a headache diary. Every time you feel that crippling pain or tension creeping into your temples, take a moment and jot it down in a handy little book. Note the time, the date, how much sleep you have had, what you stuffed your face with and any other little scraps of info regarding your daily activities. If you suffer constant headaches you may begin to see a pattern emerge and that is one sure fire way of digging out the root of the problem.

Fuel your Body

Fuel your body with goodness! It’s all too simple to sit down to junk food after a hard day but your body won’t thank you for it. Sure it may fill the gap but your body will be left craving those all-important nutrients that keep it strong and one step ahead of the game. Combating headaches can be as simple as changing your diet, implementing an exercise routine and turning the TV off in favour of an early night.

Spit it Out

Lower your stress levels. We all get caught up in the fast pace of modern day living, but don’t forget to take a bit of time out each day. If money woes, work or relationship problems are dragging you down – get it off your chest. It may be your headache simply vanishes in the wind once those all-consuming stress levels are dampened.
