Use a pillow that is not too thick to rest your head. If the pillow that you
are using is too thick, you will be straining you neck muscles when you are
asleep. If the neck muscles are taught for too long, they will become stiff
and this often precipitates as a headache.
Try to get a good night’s sleep. A good night’s sleep is very important
to keep away headaches.
"Sleep is one of the most basic and universal activities in which we all
engage. Yet, getting to sleep, staying asleep, and waking refreshed can be highly
elusive to most of us some of the time, and many of us all of the time.”
The National Sleep Foundation reports (2002) that America is on the verge of
a poor sleep epidemic, characterized by the following eye-opening statistics:
- 64% of American adults get less than the eight hours of sleep
that experts recommend is required to maintain optimal physical,
mental, and emotional health.
- One-third of the US population says
they get less sleep now than they
did five years ago
- One-half of Americans have experienced insomnia (sleeplessness)
- Drowsiness due to a lack of a proper night of sleep interferes
with the daily activities of 37 percent of all adults.
You need peace and quiet to get
enough sleep and so you should take care to see that there are no
physical disturbances. Turn the ring tone of your telephone to
the lowest possible volume. Do
not worry about important calls; if the calls are
so important, then the caller will call
back later when you have turned up the volume.
Try to cut out other disturbances by wearing earmuffs or
eye blinds. Do not read in bed before you sleep, in all
likelihood you will drift
lights on and after sometime the same light will wake you up.
Do not oversleep. Oversleeping is just as bad as not getting enough
sleep. If you sleep too much or for too long you will wake up
with a very woozy
feeling and that will most likely turn into a headache. Our body tells
us when it has
had enough sleep. Listen to the cue and get up, do not succumb to the temptation
to just lie in bed.
Try to get at least eight hours of sleep every night. Studies have
shown that this is the requirement for most healthy adults. Examine
to see how you can rearrange your day to ensure the right amount of sleep.
Try to cut out television and other non-necessary activities.
While traveling be nice to your body and give it time to adjust
to any time changes. For example if you are flying across the
there is ever
chance that you will experience what is popularly known as the jet
lag. Give you body time to adjust to such uncommon things.
Try your best to get the sleep that your body needs while you are traveling.
Do not bury your nose in a book or watch a movie, SLEEP
Take a 20-minute power nap during your lunch break. You will wake
up refreshed and without as many worries.
