Thousands of people suffer from chronic migraines that just don’t seem to go away. With so many remedies that just fall short of working, migraine sufferers begin to feel as though there is no hope for them to finally feel relief of the pain. While headache remedies may differ from person to person, here are some exercises that you can try and find which ones work best for you.
-Aerobic and relaxation exercises
There has been a direct correlation between more exercise and less headaches, heavily involving stress relief being a natural migraine remedy. Whether you prefer a more active exercise such as aerobics, or relaxing such as yoga, both have been proven beneficial for headache relief. Just 30 minutes a day, a few times a week could help lead to less frequent headaches.
-Sleeping on a regular schedule
Find the perfect balance of sleep that you need, and stick to it, every day. While it may be tempting to sleep in on the weekends, it is the best decision to wake up and go to sleep at the same time every day and get your body on a set schedule. Too much or too little sleep has been proven to be a cause of constant headaches.
-Avoid headache triggers
Pay attention to your daily processes, and take note of when your headaches begin to happen. Is it every time after you eat a certain food, or drink? Is it after using the computer for a long period of time? Once you find a trigger, you can begin to eliminate it from your daily life, and hopefully begin to eliminate the pain along with it.
