  1. Headaches can have many different causes. In order to avoid the pain it is important that you find out your personal headache triggers. The best way to identify what triggers your headache is keeping your personal headache diary. Note the intensity of the pain, if the headache is clearly located at a certain area of you head or if it affects your entire head. You can note the quality of the pain, eg. If it is sharp or dumb pain etc. It is also important to record what you have been doing before the pain has occurred, eg did you get enough sleep, what food and drinks you had, did you get fresh air, have you been working long etc. After a while you will probably identify typical behaviors or pattern leading to your headache.
  2. Try to abstain from electronic devices. Looking into your smart phone or your computer is not good for your posture. Starring into your phone with your head looking down does not only cause cramps in the neck but it literally worsens your mood. Instead of texting and mailing, stand up from your desk and speak to your colleague next door or simply pick-up the phone.
  3. Get out and breathe fresh air. Air-conditioned or heated interiors often have a far too low humidity causing the mucous membranes of the airways and eyes dry out. The whole body can dehydrate. In addition, the carbon dioxide content increases, for example during meetings. This can also lead to headaches.
  4. Go to an eye specialist and make sure your eye sight is correct. Our brain permanently processes two images, which are forwarded from the eyes via the optic nerve, to a complete picture. If the individual images are blurred or differently sharp, this is not only very stressful for the eyes. The brain also tries to present a good overall picture and must strive very hard for it. This cause for headache is often overlooked. Thus, a perfect correction of your eye sight with glasses, contact lenses or laser surgery might help you control your headache.
  5. Reduce stress. There are many techniques and strategies to cope with stress. After you’ve noticed that you’re feeling stressed, it’s important to find out why. Take a close look at the things going on in your life. Are you in a particularly stressful situation at home or work? Or are you dealing with a stressful person? If the cause of your stress isn’t immediately obvious, you could try keeping a notebook to note down details of stress. Learn how to control the thoughts in your mind with positive self-talk. Turn negative thoughts around, instead of saying to yourself ‘I can’t do it’ say ‘I can do it’ or ‘I’m calm and in control’.

If you’re feeling stressed because you’ve too much to do, then you could learn a time management technique. Do some exercise and learn some breathing or relaxation techniques: meditation, yoga, tai chi and pilates are all good ways to help you calm your body and mind.
