Got a headache? Instead of grabbing that bottle of Aspirin of the shelf, try one of these two headache relief tips first (or even both).
Drink A Glass Of Water
When you first start to feel a headache coming on, start by grabbing a big glass of water. Headaches are often a sign of dehydration and the water will be enough to stop the pain. Give it a try… personally I think the glass of water I’d pour to take my aspirin was often the biggest reason why the headache would go away.
Rub Some Peppermint Oil On Your Temples
If the pain persists after drinking the water, or you’re sure you’re dealing with a tension or sinus headache, use some peppermint oil and gently rub it on your temples. Be careful that you don’t get any in your eyes.
For migraines, I find it also helps to get a wet rag, add a few drops of peppermint oil and lay it over the forehead (preferably while laying down).
Eating healthy, nutritious foods will help ensure that you’re well and headache-free (at least most of the time). Take a look at Healthy Eating On A Budget for 200 delicious recipes that are also good for you.
