A few sim­ple facial exer­cis­es are great for reliev­ing ten­sion in the facial mus­cles that can cause headaches. Try to per­form sev­er­al options in front of the mir­ror:

Raise your eye­brows up and relax, let them fall on their own.

Close your eyes, turn your eye­balls to one side. Do it quick­ly, stay in this posi­tion a lit­tle, relax.

Open your mouth, move your jaw to the right and left.

Wrin­kle your nose like you’re sniff­ing some­thing unpleas­ant.

Make faces like you’re a child.

Protect your eyes

The head can also hurt from eye strain. Bright light, whether it be the sun, flu­o­res­cent lights, a TV or a com­put­er screen, makes you strain your eye­sight, squint, which ulti­mate­ly leads to a headache. There­fore, be sure to take breaks for your­self: move away from the com­put­er and do not for­get about gym­nas­tics for the eyes.

Replenish magnesium deficiency

A defi­cien­cy in the body of such an impor­tant trace ele­ment as mag­ne­sium can cause recur­rent headaches or even migraines.

The fact is that mag­ne­sium helps to relax mus­cles, it also relieves vasospasm, as a result, blood cir­cu­la­tion improves, more oxy­gen enters the brain, and the headache sub­sides.

Check your neck health

Cer­vi­cal osteo­chon­dro­sis is a real scourge of our time. After all, we spend many hours in immo­bil­i­ty at the com­put­er.

An inter­est­ing fact: our brain reacts to seden­tary work in a very pecu­liar way — and the rea­son for this is … gene mem­o­ry! When you sit motion­less for a long time in one place, look­ing almost at one point, the brain begins to think that you are … hunt­ing! After all, this is exact­ly how our ances­tors froze thou­sands of years ago, track­ing down prey. In con­nec­tion with this “guess”, the brain gives a num­ber of com­mands: your mus­cles tense up and stiff­en, even if you don’t notice it. Your eyes begin to blink less often (which is why we so often feel dry and burn­ing eyes at the end of the day).

This sta­t­ic ten­sion, accord­ing to the under­stand­ing of the brain, should end with a burst of activ­i­ty — you will run out of the bush­es, fight the mam­moth and drag it home. Instead, you just turn off the com­put­er and go home, the expect­ed dis­charge does not occur, and the mus­cles remain over­stressed.

causes of headache

The neck usu­al­ly suf­fers first — the ves­sels are pinched, oxy­gen defi­cien­cy occurs, and as a result, a headache. Usu­al­ly — in the back of the head and in the after­noon.

There­fore, if you often suf­fer from such symp­toms, go to a neu­rol­o­gist for a con­sul­ta­tion!

Get some sleep

The last tip is the most obvi­ous. The impact of sleep on our health can­not be under­es­ti­mat­ed. 7 hours is the min­i­mum that will save you from overex­er­tion headaches, allow you to cope with all the stress­es through­out the day and increase your immu­ni­ty to the desired lev­el.

Watch your health in any sit­u­a­tion — and remem­ber: you are alone!
