1. Drink plenty of water

For men: Drink at least 13 glasses of water (3 liters) daily
For women: Drink at least 9 glasses of water (2.2 liters) daily


Dehydration can cause headaches. Drink a glass of water as soon as your head begins to ache, and try to keep on drinking small sips throughout the day. You will gradually feel the pain began to subside. Avoid drinking anything that can cause dehydration such as coffee, alcohol, and drinks that are loaded with sugar.

2. Get enough sleep or rest


The best place to relax is a quiet and dim lights place. If possible, try to lay down and relax for 30 minutes. Find ease in your mind.


In addition, you can also sleep for a second to relieve the pain. Make sure your place to sleep is comfortable and your head gets support by a soft pillow. I know there's a pillow that is not soft and may cause a headache. huh


Choose the temperature that suits you during your rest time. Some people are more comfortable in cold air cond, while others are more comfortable with fan winds only. Either way, choose which one you feel more comfortable.

3. Slow down on your caffeine

Drinks or foods containing caffeine can be said to be two points. It can be a drug and also be one of the causes of headache. It depends on the person himself.


Most medicines you can find contain caffeine, to speed up the effectiveness of the painkillers.


During a headache, adenosine is released into the blood vessels. Caffeine help by preventing adenosine receptors. Limit consumptions of caffeine! A daily large amount of it can cause you to be a caffeine addict.


If you are a hardcore coffee drinker (more than 200mg a day, or 2 cups of coffee) and you suddenly do not take it in a day, you will have a headache problem as a side effect.
