Some of the most common triggers include high-stress levels, hormone changes, lack of sleep, physical exertion, as well as certain foods. Preventing migraines starts with identifying your triggers and avoiding them. But once a migraine has started your focus should shift to finding a remedy and incorporating them into your daily routine. Some popular remedies that you might try include:
- Exercising regularly
- Getting adequate sleep
- Relaxation techniques, such as meditation or breath work
- Reducing caffeine intake
- Avoiding medication overuse
