You are sitting in front of your computer when you feel the first pound.
Was that…? You wonder and go still for three seconds.
So you go back to work with a frown settling on your face. That’s when you feel the second pound…and the third…before a thousand elephants decide to march across your brain.
Sounds familiar? I thought so too. Headaches are sneaky that way.
So here some reasons why you are having frequent headaches and what you can do about each of them.
#1 You Drink Way Too Much Coffee!
Here’s the deal with coffee: it’s a double-edged sword. It can stimulate your mind when consumed in the right amount or give you a headache when not.
So be careful how many cups of Joe you drink throughout the day.
#2 You Sleep Too Much
Nope. Not making this up. It’s the reason why you frequently wake up on weekends with a pounding headache that screws up your plan of binge-watching shows on Netflix.
#3 You Hate Your Workplace
Most of us spend the better part of our day at our workplace. That’s why it’s very important to work in an environment that is positive and stress-free. Because if you don’t, the stress alone will give you frequent headaches.
#4 Your Personal Life Is A Mess
A positive environment at home is as important as that at work. After all, it’s the haven you go back to after a tiring day.
So, if you are living with a person who constantly nags and drains your energy or are constantly fighting with someone in your inner circle, you will definitely have more headaches and migraines than usual.
#5 Your Computer Screen Is Too Bright
Your eyes are not biologically designed to sustain the bright light of a computer screen for hours on end. So if you look at the computer screen too long with the screen glaring at you like a car’s headlight, you are bound to end up with a bad headache.
The solution: Get the screen of your computer replaced with an anti-glare screen and keep the brightness low so it does not constantly hit your retina so harshly.
