5 Reasons You Have A Headache

1) Your stress level is high

Increased stress levels can cause tension headaches, which most frequently manifest as headaches at the base of your skull or at your temples


2) Your posturing is poor

Sitting with a slouched posture puts a lot of stress on your spine and muscles causing tightness, neck pain and even headaches


3) Your spine isn’t moving well

Whether it’s from arthritis or poor sleep positioning, the joints in your neck can become very stiff and cause headaches – usually on one side of your face or head


4) You clench your teeth at night

Clenching and grinding your teeth at night can not only cause jaw pain, but neck pain and headaches as well


5) Your contact/glasses prescription isn’t current

Your eyes change as you age, and if you don’t have a current prescription, you may be straining your eyes and potentially causing headaches
