Spot The Changes
An odd headache here and there are often part of many busy people’s lives; however, when pain in your head becomes more frequent and prolonged, it might be time to start questioning the reasoning behind them. Headaches and migraines can have a debilitating impact on you daily activities and well being; they can also be induced by high-stress levels and the resulting lack of sleep. If your head has been causing you pain for a while; visit your GP or speak to a Dr online so that you can rule out any conditions or illnesses.

The simplest way to unwind is to stop when things get too much; knowing your limits will help your confidence in saying no to more burden, and you’ll be able to take some much-needed time for yourself. Make sure that you do something that you enjoy every day; it might be reading a book, having a hot bath, or combining the two. You want to let your mind drift off and the switch off so that you can have a peaceful night’s sleep.

Techniques like yoga and meditation are great for unwinding tense bodies and giving your mind the reset button it needs. Take a moment each morning to breathe and meditate to set you up for an energised day ahead. Clearing your mind will help to rid you of worry and negative thoughts; this will help in the fight against stress and the detrimental health consequences it can bring.
