In brief: Rest for most
Most head injuries are mild but still require a period of proper rest to allow the brain to recover. You should not return to school, sport or work until symptoms like headache, nausea & sleepiness have fully recovered - your Dr can give you a cert.
Keep TV/computer screen time to a minimum. Allow yourself to sleep more than usual. Gentle exercise is good but limit it if headaches/nausea return.
