Thank you for your query at
I understand your concern.
The most effective remedy to cope with tension headache is obviously to get rid of the stress, and without that's it's a recurring thing. You have listed out nearly all the methods except for medication and green tea. Green tea is rich in anti-oxidants and helps to reduce the overall stress levels.
If it's mild the methods you have employed especiaaly, taking time off in between work will be helpful. If it's hampering your work then medicines like advil once a day after food will be helpful.
Try to limit the usage of computer/ laptops. It puts a lot of pressure on your eyes and leads to a vague headache all the time. May be you can consider using a screen guard to reduce the intensity of rays that hits your eyes directly from the computer screen.
Meditation if continued over a period of time will definitely be helpful. So try to develop a habit of meditating twice a day 15 minutes each. Even mild walking and yoga will be beneficial.
Hope this was helpful,
