How Is Migraine Disorder Prevented?
Aside from taking preventive medications, there are a few strategies that you can use to help prevent migraines from happening. Not all of these strategies will work for everyone, and even if a strategy works for you sometimes, it might not be able to stop every migraine.
- Get plenty of exercise. Regular exercise not only improves your overall health, but it also can help to reduce the effects of stress, anxiety, and tension, all of which may be migraine triggers.
- Explore relaxation or meditation techniques. These techniques will also help to lower your stress level and may decrease the frequency or severity of your migraines, too.
- Get plenty of sleep. Disruptions in sleep schedule may trigger migraines, and staying well-rested can help prevent them. Aim for a consistent sleep schedule, and avoid sleeping too much.
- Don’t skip meals. Maintain a consistent eating schedule, too, as skipping meals is a common migraine trigger.
- Use a headache diary. Write down the details of every headache you experience, including what you were doing before the headache began and any symptoms that you noticed. The diary can help you to recognize–and avoid–any triggers that you might otherwise miss.
