There’s nothing worse than a splitting headache. (Maybe a root canal. Or a really deep paper cut.) But if your first instinct is to grab the Excedrin, try this amazing two-minute visualization technique first. We discovered it on a viral video created by YouTuber Kamil K. Wawrzyszko. He’s not a doctor, but it totally worked for us.
How to Get Rid of a Headache:
Step 1: Close your eyes and ask yourself a series of three questions: Where is your headache the most painful? What color is it? What shape is it?
Step 2: Say your answers out loud.
Step 3: Repeat this process four times.
How the heck does this get rid of a headache? It’s a mind trick that shifts your focus away from the pain, releasing tension in your face, head and neck. If a stubborn headache is really plaguing you, this seven-minute guided visualization on Spotify might be more effective. Hey, before you pop those pills, it’s worth a try.
