1. Drink plenty of water. Dehydration can lead to a headache, especially if you’ve vomited recently or you’re hungover. Drink a tall glass of water as soon as your head starts to hurt, and try to continue drinking small sips throughout the day. You should gradually feel the pain start to ease.
2. Use caffeine carefully––it can be a double-edged sword. Many OTC painkillers contain caffeine, for two reasons. Caffeine makes painkillers work faster and more effectively. Without caffeine, painkillers would be slower and less effective, which leaves open the door to painkiller abuse by well-meaning individuals who are simply looking for relief.
3. Find a quiet, dark place to take a break. If you can, try to lie down and relax for at least 30 minutes. Shut the blinds, turn off the lights, and focus on your breathing. A damp flannel over your eyes can help.
4. Use a cool compress. Placing something soft and cool over your forehead can help the blood vessels constrict, which might ease some of the pain of the headache. This works particularly well if the problem is concentrated in your temples or sinuses.
5. Massage your scalp, neck and ear lobes. Doing some light massage can distract you from the pain, as well as improving circulation and relieving tension. For a basic massage, gently press your fingers over your temples, and move them in slow circles
6. Listen to Healing Music. Listening to Specially designed music for Headache Relief can allow you to let go of all toxic mental conditions, moving into the present moment, finding that calm and quiet space within where there is nothing to worry about.
