4 Ways to Manage Your Migraines
Here are some tips for managing migraines:
1. Keep a diary
Tracking your migraines is really important as it can help you find out what might be triggering them. Keeping a record of your eating habits and activities is really important and you can contact Migraine Action for a young people’s diary!
2. Go offline!
Using the computer for long periods of time can strain your eyes and may trigger a migraine. Take some time out and get some fresh air.
3. Make some ‘me’ time!
We know that migraines can be very unpredictable but setting aside some time to relax can really help. Taking time to do something you enjoy is really important, whether you like going outdoors, seeing friends or listening to music.
4. Speak to Migraine Action
