According to a Mayo Clinic study, many moms admitted that migraine prevented them to do their parenting tasks efficiently and effectively. If you are stricken with extreme headaches, practice these smart ways to outsmart migraine.
- Identify your triggers. It is important that you find the triggers of your migraine so you can avoid them. Stress, being the major contributor of migraine can be managed by working on specific solutions to address the person/thing/situation that cause anxiety and depression. More so, having a positive attitude helps in reducing stress.
- Modify your lifestyle. A study at Stanford University revealed that having a healthy lifestyle can lessen the frequency of migraine for about 50 percent. This is achieved through a healthy diet, regular exercise and getting a good sleep.
- Have a treatment plan. Prevention is better than cure so it’s better to be ready with your migraine kit in case headache will attack you. Make sure your kit contains your medicines, a bottle of water and peppermint oil.
- Explain your migraine to your children. It is encouraged that moms should discuss their health condition to their kids as the little ones can help them. From giving warm hugs and a sweet reassurance like “Take a rest, mom” or “You’ll be okay, mom,” for sure moms with migraine will feel better somehow.
