Loud noises and bright lights (especially, strobe lights) can easily trigger migraine headaches. It can be hard to avoid all these things, but you should know about certain situations when it can happen.
They include the following:
- being in movie theaters;
- driving at night;
- being in clubs and crowded places.
Take breaks from computer and smartphones screens to rest your eyes. Adjust the brightness levels on digital screens. If a migraine arises, avoid all audio and visual disturbances that can worsen the situation.
2. Get healthy sleep.
Poor sleep is one of the most common triggers of migraine. Moreover, bad sleeping habits are a risk factor of regular migraines. Doctors say that healthy sleep patterns can dramatically reduce migraine attacks. The key rule is going to bed and waking up at the same time. Make your bedroom a place for relax and don’t use your bed for reading, listening to music, or watching TV. Avoid large meals before going to bed. These simple tips can help regulate your circadian rhythm and prevent migraine attacks.
