A Headache-Free End to the School Year

By Donna Stark

The end of the school year may bring a lot of excitement to many families, but for some, it can also bring extra doses of stress. Between studying for those final tests to practicing for school performances to deciding on the best summer plans, it can feel like a train has hit everyone in your home. And although some stress is good in our lives, there is a chance that you or your loved ones may experience an increase in headaches with these. Fortunately, you don't have to end the school year in pain. Take a look at the following suggestions on how to naturally alleviate head pain. 

Get Adjusted

By restoring proper alignment in your body, reducing inflammation, decreasing stress and anxiety, and easing muscle tension in your back and neck, regular chiropractic adjustments are an effective way to get rid of your head pain. On top of that, they can improve the quality of your sleep, which can help decrease the frequency and intensity of your headaches as well.

Take Plenty of Breaks

If you are spending a lot of time sitting in one position (studying, driving to college graduations, watching the state championships in the bleachers), make sure to take a break every 30 minutes or so to move, stretch, and walk around. In addition to being good for your body and joints, it is also good for your mental health.

Engage in Daily Physical Activity

It's understandable that you may not want to engage in an intense workout when your head hurts, but low-impact exercises, such as walking and swimming, may be a great alternative. Walking will get you outdoors, which is a great way to reduce stress and swimming is very calming to both the body and mind.

Stay Hydrated

One of the main causes of headaches that many people overlook is dehydration, so make sure you are drinking the recommended amount of water every single day! If you don't like drinking water, try infusing it with some fruits and vegetables. It's also a good idea to carry a water bottle around. That way, you won't have any excuse to skip your sips!

Stress-Free and Headache-Free Days Ahead

By following the suggestions above, you can minimize the stress in your life during this busy time of year and decrease the likelihood of headaches. So, go ahead and start today! Make the necessary corrections to your daily routine and get ready to enjoy all that summer has to offer!
