A headache is a pain in the region of the head or neck. Whether the pain is mild or severe, if you are always having a headache, there are reasons why this is happening. Here are some of them:
You are always taking painkillers
Anytime, you have body pain or a headache, you pop painkillers. Your body will become accustomed to it that even when you do not feel any pain, you crave painkillers. You are only setting yourself up for regular headaches. The more you pop painkillers, the more you are susceptible to frequent headaches.
You are addicted to caffeine
For those who are addicted to caffeinated coffee and always have a cup beside them whenever they are working, they are opening the door for headaches. This is because caffeine reduces swollen blood vessels which make your head throb. So, too much caffeine also causes or worsens pre-existing headaches.
You ignore triggers
The triggers of headaches include stress, hormone fluctuations, sleep disruption, sleeping late and even heat among others. So, arrest these triggers before they lead to headaches or migraines.
You’re too lazy or tired to exercise
Exercise reduces stress and helps you sleep. These are natural painkillers. However, if you are too lazy or tired to exercise, you will definitely have headaches. People who exercise regular scarcely do.
Erratic sleep schedule
Your sleep schedule is very erratic and disorganised. Today, you oversleep, tomorrow you sleep a little. Both sleep schedule can lead to headaches. It is not out of place to add that sleep can also relieve headaches. Try to find a balance and get a reasonable time for sleeping.
