Here are some more exercises for a tension headache...
You have to understand that the tension headache comes purely from tight cervical and neck muscles. When muscles become tight, what actually happens is that lactic acid gets accumulated in them.

Under ordinary conditions, when a muscle works, glucose gets converted into carbon dioxide and water. The blood easily removes these two waste materials.
But when a muscle has to work for too long or for tow hard the energy demand is too high that the cells do not get time to convert glucose fully into carbon dioxide and water. Instead the glucose is converted into another substance that is lactic acid.

The problem with lactic acid is that it restricts further movement of the muscles and this results in muscular cramps. In such conditions application of a little bit of pressure can help the muscles release the pent up lactic acid. When the cervical and neck muscles get accumulated with lactic acid, it often results in a headache. The exercise that is described below can prove to be very effective.

  1. Turn on the shower and direct the flow of the stream of water onto the back of your neck
  2. Now turn your head as if you are trying to see who is behind you.
  3. Stand like this for one or two minute.
  4. Then repeat the exercise but looking in the opposite side this time.

Exercise is a good way to prevent headaches. Exercise is a wonderful way of increasing the blood flow to the various organs and parts of your body. So if you can develop a regular exercise pattern, you will in fact be ensuring a better blood circulation and proper supply of oxygen to the various cells of the body.

However, it goes without saying that you should not try to exercise if you are already experiencing a headache.
As I mentioned earlier, a couple of centuries ago, people were involved in a lot of manual labor.

This gave their bodies all the exercise that was needed. But due to the changed life styles, most of us do not have to engage in strenuous work. Most of us sit in front of computers all day long or engage in such sedentary works.

Work out, it’s good for you.

When we think about the life in the country, there is always something rosy about it. What is it that the people in the country have that we do not? When you ponder about it you find that those lucky souls eat good food, they work really hard, by work I mean real physical work and they have good night’s sleep. Of course they do not have all the amenities and facilities that the city life has to offer.

But the city life comes with a lot of strings attached. People in the cities are generally less healthy than the people in the country. One of the reasons is pollution of course but the other reason is because people in the city do not get enough exercise.

Now, when I talk about healthy bodies please make no mistake about what I am referring to. I am not talking about the Mr. Universe kind of body, the bodies that we see on WWF.

I am talking about people who are fit. And fitness and exercise are just two sides of the same coin. They both go hand in hand.

In order to stay fit you need exercise and in order to exercise you need to be fit. But just because you are not fit now, it does not mean that you shouldn’t exercise.

And just like that, just because you do not have any visible excess fat on your body right now, it does not mean that you need no exercise. Exercise is the best way to keep obesity, cardio vascular disorders, hypertension and all those lifestyle-related disorders under control.

First of all let us get one point straight, exercise does not necessarily mean pumping metal. If you do have the time to go to a gymnasium everyday, then that is well and good. But I suppose most of us do not have the time for a regular work out in a gym. So the other alternative is to do it at home of course.

But whether it is at home or at a multi-gym, there is something that I want to tell you. Whatever you are doing, you must try and do it regularly.
Regularity is very important for an exercise routine to have the desired effect on our body. Getting started is the easy part, it is sticking to a regular exercise routine that is difficult and this is what makes most people give up in between.

Most people get on to a beautiful start. They buy tracksuits and gym-wear, running shoes and a whole lot of other gear. Their first day at the gym is almost a celebration.
Then as the days go on, they find it increasingly difficult to meet the domestic and professional demands and so their routine slows down and finally comes to a complete workout burn out. In other words, the stop working out completely

It is a universal fact that the most chosen time for workouts is the evenings. If you can stick to work out in the evenings then it is well and good. But most of us find ourselves exhausted in the evenings. We find ourselves physically and mentally drained. And at that time our bodies will be just too tired for a work out.

The result is that after the first few days of working out, the interest just dwindles away. The other reason is that in the evenings a thousand and one things may crop up and then there is hardly time for a warm up. So it is best to set aside some time for exercise in the morning itself.

There are two advantages of setting apart time in the morning. The first advantage is that in the morning our bodies are fresh and full of energy. Now over here I want to make one point clear.

There is a popular misconception that exercise depletes the body of energy but the case is just the opposite. Exercise pumps up more blood through the different parts of the body and warms up the body, so in fact, after exercise we feel more charged and ready to face the challenges of the day.

The second advantage is that in the morning we can plan for the whole day without letting the exercise routine affect the rest of our activities.
What about those of us who have never worked out before? In such cases you might need to start off under the personal supervision of an instructor and that may require that you go to a gym. But what I would suggest is that there are two simple things that any one can do for which you do not need the help of any instructor.

You know what these are? They are walking and swimming. Any body can walk and those of you who know how to swim can swim. For these two activities you do not need much gear and experts say that these two exercises have no side effects and are excellent stress busters.

So in the morning wake up just half an hour earlier, put on your walking shoes and hit the roads. Most roads will be less crowded at this hour and less polluted too. It is a wonderful way to start a day. Below I have included some points on how to start and maintain a good exercise routine.

Stretch your self every now and then. Never let cramps set in. If you feel that you have been in a position for too long, get and stretch yourself. Rub your hands and feet and the muscles of your neck to boost up the circulation.

An exercise that will help you get rid of a tension related headache. This is an exercise that is usually done by an expert but I assure you that it is perfectly safe to do it on your own as well.

  1. Place your right hand on the top of your head or let it rest on your forehead.
  2. Now gently turn your head towards the right. This will clear the left side of your neck so that your left hand can have easy access to it.
  3. Now place the palm of your left hand on the back of your neck and let your fingers try to sense out any muscle that is particularly taut.
  4. For this, all you have to do is let your fingers creep along your neck like the legs of a spider but with a little more force.
  5. When you have found a tight muscle, gently apply pressure on it using the soft balls of your fingers.
  6. As you apply pressure, breathe in air and hold the air for ten to twenty seconds.
  7. As you hold the air, the application of pressure must continue.
  8. Concentrate on the releasing of the tension of that muscle.
  9. Convince your mind that all the toxins that were pent up in that muscle have now been released.
  10. When you feel that the muscle has relaxed, release your grip and at the same time breathe out through your mouth, feeling that all the toxins have been released from your body.
  11. Repeat the exercise on the same side of your neck and try to find another muscle.
  12. In this way continue till all the muscles on the left side are done.
  13. Now repeat this exercise with right side of your neck and using your right hand this time.
