Migraines are headaches multiplied by itself in the form of nausea and disturbed—sometimes even impaired—vision. It is a repeated throbbing sensation on one side of the head and is most of the time recurrent in a person’s lifetime (especially those who legitimately suffer from the disease). It is also often described as “more than just a painful headache”.
So, if you’re a frequent sufferer of migraines and you came here looking for a few helpful tips to help you battle the beast even before it lands, then it’s your lucky day.
- Take Supplements. Go the healthy route and take supplements. They might not get rid of the throbbing headache altogether, but they help reduce the risk of it reoccurring any time soon.
- Don’t sleep in. While it is a known fact that sleeping too late and too little contribute greatly to the occurrence of migraines, little do people know that so can sleeping too much. Don’t do it. 7 – 9 hours of sleep every night will do you justice. Sleeping in every now and then is okay, just make sure not to make a habit of it.
- Avoid loud noises and bright lights. Sensory stimulation is a common trigger of migraines. It’s best to stay away from any sort of flashing light or disturbing noises to avoid attacks.
- Watch what you eat. It would be very helpful if you took note of what you eat on a daily basis. It will help you identify the main triggers of your attacks and how severe each one can be. You can also see, after a while, if there are any patterns. This will make avoiding them easier.
- Avoid Stress. Stress is one of the main causes of migraine, as with any other disease. While we can’t control when stressful events might take place, we can, however, control how we react to them. Devoid of being too stressed. Take deep breaths whenever situations that stress you out arise.
- Exercise. You don’t need to do tiring exercises every single time. Simply maintaining a healthy yoga-meditation lifestyle is enough. No cheat-skip days!
