Simple Solutions To Seemingly Complex Health Issues

We often overestimate the complexity of a cause for a health problem and here is a very quick example. You might have a headache. It’s persistent. It’s been with you for quite some time, maybe reoccurring over a couple of weeks. Now, if you look online, you’ll find that a headache like this is a red light for a brain tumor or something just as terrifying. However, there could be a simple solution?


Are you binge-watcher? If you know that after a time Netflix actually asks you if you want to continue watching a show, the answer is yes, you absolutely are. That means that you’re spending hours at a time staring at a screen. To get that message you need to have not touched your laptop at all, meaning your eyes have been glued to the latest show for ages. If this is a big part of your life, you will get more headaches than most people. The same goes for working at a laptop screen all day. Try taking breaks, having a wander around and squeezing in some exercise between a TV show binge. You’ll probably find that headache does go away. Here are some other seemingly complex health issues with simple solutions.

I Can’t Sleep


If you can’t sleep, there are numerous complex possible causes. Maybe you have insomnia? Insomnia is actually quite rare and is usually caused by a traumatic event. Or, perhaps you’re super stressed. You just can’t get your brain to switch off, and you need to find a way to relax. But do yourself a favor.

Before you book that spa weekend or book an appointment with a therapist, lie down on your bed. Have a wriggle around. Does it feel comfortable or is it quite lumpy? Can you feel the springs and is it too firm? If your mattress isn’t comfortable, you will have trouble getting to sleep. Check out a resource like mattress.review, and you’ll find information on all the mattresses currently available on the market. That way, you can pick a better one that isn’t going to keep you up all through the night. You’ve saved yourself a weekend at a spa and a trip to see a therapist. One of those is definitely a plus...we’re not so sure about the other.

I Really Am Stressed


Okay, you’re stressed, you need a career change, you need to reassess your personal relationships, and you definitely need to move away from the city? Wait a minute, take a deep breath, hold it for ten seconds and let it go. Do it again, and again, and again. Do you feel that? That’s your brain receiving extra oxygen, and that’s your breathing slowly regulating. You probably feel a little calmer and more secure. You might have even started to figure out a solution to the issue that is causing you stress. The answer to dealing with serious levels of stress really can be that simple. Sometimes all you need to do is take a deep breath and let life slow down a little.

Do bear in mind this article isn’t suggesting that issues like this aren’t serious. Constantly having headaches can be painful, stress can give you physical symptoms and not getting enough sleep will impact your mood. But that doesn’t mean you should look for a complex cause to an issue like this. When it comes to issues with your health, sometimes the simplest answer is the right one.
