It is seen that hours of playing video games can actually lead to headaches. As for games, related to headache relief, any game which relaxes you and offers you peace of mind is recommended. However, there are some games and quizzes which can help you in increasing your knowledge about headaches and the related conditions. Games like versions of Hangman and other word games increase your knowledge about headaches and related issues. These games are easily available online.
Also there are quizzes which analyze whether the symptoms that you are exhibiting are potentially serious or not and whether they predispose you to any kind of headache-related disease in the future.
These games actually distract your mind from the headache, thereby forcing you not to think about it. They also act as excellent preventative measures for headaches.
It is often said that music has healing powers. In fact, it is said that music is helpful even in the treatment of potentially serious and life-threatening diseases like cancer. A whole new branch of treatment by music, known as 'Music Therapy' has opened up.
It is thought that music is extremely useful in treating headaches. This is because apart from the entertainment value, music also has certain soothing qualities. The vibrations from various instruments are supposed to provide relief to the nerves which get stimulated during a headache.
A lot of emphasis has been laid on the use of music as a healing instrument, in the Indian culture. This has important implications for health and healing. According to the recent studies, the human heart involuntarily synchronizes its beat to the rhythm of the external stimuli.
Hence, the right kind of soothing and peaceful music should be found. It should be relaxing and rejuvenating enough to the mind and should have the ability to soothe frayed nerves and thus bring tension and stress, the two major factors causing headaches, under control.
All this is a part of the holistic healing practices that are being religiously followed nowadays.
