Headache is now a common feeling in normal human life, irrespective of age or gender. It is most commonly seen in older teens and adults. The most reasons behind a headache are stress, depression, head injury, or anxiety. These feelings can lead to muscle contractions and thus end up with what doctors term ‘stress headache’. Headaches can cause mild to intense pain behind your eyes and also in your head and neck. According to the research of clinical neurology, stress headaches affect roughly 70% of people, and they can last from 30 minutes to even 72 hours.

When you found yourself under this severe condition, never go out for a pill. Instead, there is a magical wonder that can make you rid of this unpleasant situation within minutes. And the name of that wonder is ‘Yoga’. Move out from your medicine cabinet, instead, get straight onto your yoga mat.
