In brief: Relief from Headache

Relief from Stress Headache: • Focus on “Breath Is Life” • Keep saying until you run out of breath.
• Take another deep breath and repeat the same. • Do it with 10 breaths • Do not focus on other thoughts, they will pass away like clouds on mountain • Visual Imagery of National parks or a Peaceful place • Music Relaxation • Meditation • See Physician for Therapy and Medication

In brief: ? The problem

Part of the stress/tension headache may be a fast paced life style.
You may not have control over the stress but you do have control over how you respond to it. There are medications that may help but it is better to find ways to idenify the triggers and deal with them. Look into the techniques of cognitive behavior therapy. Take control of your stress response and you will have less headaches.
