Taking good care of yourself will help you lessen the occurrence and severity of migraine attacks. Below are some ways on how to improve your lifestyle:
Avoid different stressors that may trigger migraine attacks.
This may be physical and emotional factors such as traveling, neck and shoulder tension, excitement, shock, and anxiety. You may avoid these stressors by simply taking time to relax and having enough time to rest and sleep. Don’t be too harsh on yourself. You deserve to have some quality time away from different stressors that can be harmful to your health.
Have a medication plan.
It is important to always follow the advice of your doctor. Take your medications on time, and avoid taking non-prescribed drugs.
Record the pattern and triggers of your migraine.
It is indeed important to record your headache patterns and triggers, for you to be able to properly deal with them in the future.
Have sufficient intake of water.
Dehydration can trigger a migraine attack; so needless to say, it pays to drink enough water.
Observe regular routines in different activities.
This is mostly advisable in eating and sleeping. At times, changes in eating and sleeping patterns can trigger migraine attacks; so it is a must to eat and sleep around the same times everyday regardless of your changing activity schedules.
