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.
- Turn on the shower and direct the flow of the stream of water
onto the back of your neck
- Now turn your head as if you are trying
to see who is behind you.
- Stand like this for one or two minute.
- 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
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
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
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,
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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.
