If you often suffer from headaches, you certainly know how awful their symptoms are — along with pain, you might also experience dizziness, nausea, irregular heartbeat, and even vision problems. To prevent this condition, you should regularly train your muscles and blood vessels. And the best way to do this is to perform moderate exercises for at least 10 minutes every day.
smartzune.com put together 7 easy exercises that can help you restore blood circulation and treat your headaches without medication.
7. Standing forward bend
Stand in Tadasana, hands on hips. Exhale and bend forward from the hip joints, not from the waist. As you descend draw the front torso out of the groins and open the space between the pubis and top sternum. As in all the forward bends, the emphasis is on lengthening the front torso as you move more fully into the position.
The initial position: Standing on the floor with your feet together.
What to do:
- Raise your arms toward the ceiling and stretch your whole body upward.
- Take a deep breath in.
- Exhale and lower your arms, bending your upper body forward, and trying to reach the floor with your palms.
- Hold for a couple of seconds, then return to the initial position.
Repeat: 5-6 times
Benefits: Bending forward enhances blood circulation to your head and stabilizes your heart rate.
