7. Shield your Eyes
Always carry an extra pair of sunglasses (in your purse or in the car) if your migraines are triggered by exposure to glare or bright sunlight.
8. Cut Out Caffeine
If you notice a correlation between coffee intake and migraine incidence, you might want to kick that nasty caffeine habit—that’s including caffeinated tea and soda as well.
9. Identify Migraine Triggers
Weather changes, stress, caffeine, poor diet—it’s important to be aware of what causes your migraines so you can adapt your lifestyle as much as possible. Taking a proactive approach—for example, by keeping a migraine journal can help you identify your main triggers so you can avoid them.
10. Adequate Sleep
It doesn’t matter if you sleep too few hours or sleep too many hours—too much or too little sleep will often lead to a migraine. Adopt a sleep schedule (i.e., take a bath, meditate, or read a book) and create a relaxing atmosphere before bedtime.
