Headaches come nudging, throbbing or persistent and are sometimes a sign of an underlying serious health issue (which could be serious or unserious).

Headaches cause discomfort and it's a way the body 'is told' to slow down. Most times, what you expose yourself to, things you do in the course of the day and more seemingly unimportant factors trigger headaches, these ones below are just few from the lot:

1. Hunger

Hunger is a major cause of headache during the course of the day. To stay at peak performance all day, don't skip breakfast and snack on healthy foods as the day progresses.
