Many times in my life I have hit myself on my head, not intentionally of course. But I’m a bit confused if it’s safe or not cuz I have never lost consciousness. There’s no article on the internet about slight head injuries. The injuries had no effect on my learning, memory, logic etc. but I still have pain in my skull due to the injury I had a few days ago (not serious though). How can I prevent myself from getting head injuries? Are these risk-free?
Can you describe how you accidentally hit yourself on the head. Give some examples.
Have you done some personality test to see where you are at wrt the big five? Because if it’s been going on all the time it’s a personality thing of maybe some type of reaction to something else.
If you are high on neuroticism then it’s not much you could do but you could make things a bit better by having a structure in your day and maybe, perhaps develop some type of routine. creat rules essentially.
If its a reaction, then you look at when it happens. You make a log and maintain an order of what, when, where, how and all the details. After enough time you see a pattern and then you address the pattern and fix it like that.
The solution is, it depends on what it is. Irregardless - you need to fix it! Head injury is no joke. Acute Sudural and Epidural hematoma kills 80% of people. It’s when you hit your head hard enough and then a blood vein brusts and pours blood between your skull bone and head membrane. within 12 hours it need to be fixed - otherwise you are smoked. chance is 1/5 for survival. look it up on wikipedia!

I was walking normally and got distracted by a bird. I was looking backward while walking forward and got hit by a wall.
Thanks for that I did not go to a doctor but having a daily routine helps me to be alert. As I had said that I never suffered a reaction but still I was a little scared. Daily memory training using memory palace also helps a lot.
