If you’re anything like me, you get headaches once in a while. Some of you may get them more. When that happens, sometimes from being hungry or stressed, I would go to my trusted Advil and pop it to take the pain away. In recent years, I’ve begun to realize that sometimes my headache is from dehydration, so I now my first go to is WATER.

Headaches occur for various reasons. They can be the result of head injuries, they can be viral infections like cases of flu and colds. They can be a result of hormones and menstruation for women. Most commonly in the new day and age, eye strain and blue light from screens can trigger headaches. This is why so many people decide to go to this site to find a cure in a pair of blue light-blocking glasses. They can stop the flicker of a screen, and definitely worth the investment if looking at screens is something you do on a daily or even for a job. US News recently published an article by Yuri Elkaim, a nutritionist and fitness expert, on How to Stop a Headache. There are various methods listed on stopping a headache. You should check it out here.

Here are two more of my favorites from the list, in addition to drinking water:

  • Hot and Cold Contrast – put cold compress on your head and soak your feet in warm water
  • Relax – meditation, deep breathing or yoga

So before you go to pop a pill, try a more natural method. You never know, it just might work. That pill can always be popped another day.
