Avoid and ditch the mind-numbing pain.
Don’t get mad. Stress triggers tension headaches. When you feel the ache build up as you argue with your man, just try to cool down – or else you’ll be suffering from a tension headache for anywhere from 30 minutes to a week. (Yes, that’s how long it could last.)
Have a good posture. Muscle tension causes tension headaches. Having good posture heal keeps your muscles from tensing up. So, when standing, hold your shoulders back and your head high. Then, pull in your abdomen and tuck in our chin.
Don’t bring too much. If you’re going to be on the move all day long, don’t carry bag that weighs more than two pounds. The heavy load will just strain your muscles.
Get relief asap. Treat Tension headaches right at the onset. Rest, ice packs, or a hot shower may help. You could also take over-the counter pain relievers such as ibuprofen. But, if pain persist, see a doctor immediately.
