SSPDaily has prepared life hacks for getting rid of headaches. Find out about effective and natural methods of feeling better without resorting to pills.

Use a cold compress

A simple method is to wrap ice or another cold product in a thin cloth or towel and apply it to the forehead or back of the head. The cold temperature helps to constrict blood vessels and anesthetizes the area, thereby reducing pain. For optimal results, leave the compress on for about 15 minutes and repeat the procedure as needed.

Pressing on acupressure points

One of these points is located in the bridge between the thumb and forefinger on the outside of the hand. When pressing this point firmly for 5 minutes, a person may feel relief.

Other points are located in the back of the head, midway between the ear and the beginning of the spine. Massaging these points helps relieve nasal congestion, eye and ear pain, severe headaches and migraines.

Performing deep breathing exercises

Take a comfortable sitting position and inhale deeply through your nose, allowing your abdomen to expand with each breath. Hold your breath for a few seconds and then slowly exhale through your mouth, repeat several times.

You should focus on the feeling of breathing. Deep breathing helps to increase oxygen consumption, reduce muscle tension, and overall relaxation, which helps to naturally relieve headache symptoms.
