Headache Again? Maybe It’s Because You Aren’t Drinking Enough Water

You should be having a good day, or busy doing your work, but headache is bothering you. Usually people would op an aspirin or another type of pain reliever, as the pain is really irritating. Or you would go to sleep earlier, hoping the torture will end when you fall asleep. Most of the time you don’t know why. Stress? Migraine? Yes these are possible. But we’re seldom told that it can be caused by inadequate water intake. And this happens to be one of the most common causes!

1. Eat More Fruits and Vegetables

Keep a piece of fruit in your desk or on your work area for a quick afternoon snack. Stock your own veggie assortment and your favorite dip in your company’s break room.

2. Follow The Before, During, and After Rule

Before a meal, down a glass of water. While you are eating your meal, down another glass of water and as you finish your meal, polish off another glass of water. Following this rule for at least two meal times will not only up your water intake, but it will likely cause you to eat less, as water is filling for your system and will help prevent you from overeating. Talk about a double benefit!
