1. Identify Triggers:

      • Keep a migraine diary to pinpoint potential triggers like foods, stress, weather changes, and hormonal fluctuations.
      • Common triggers include certain foods, alcohol, strong odors, bright lights, and loud noises.
    2. Maintain a Regular Schedule:

      • Establish a consistent sleep pattern by going to bed and waking up at the same times daily.
      • Eat regular meals and snacks to prevent low blood sugar, a migraine trigger.
    3. Manage Stress:

      • Practice stress-reduction techniques like meditation, deep breathing, or yoga.
      • Address sources of stress in your life.
    4. Stay Hydrated:

      • Drink plenty of water throughout the day to avoid dehydration, which can trigger migraines.
      • Limit caffeine and alcohol, as they can dehydrate you.
    5. Dietary Changes:

      • Be mindful of your diet and avoid trigger foods like MSG, aspartame, and tyramine-containing items.
      • Consider consulting a dietitian for guidance.
    6. Regular Exercise:

      • Engage in regular, gentle physical activity like walking or swimming.
      • Avoid intense exercise if it triggers migraines.
    7. Adequate Sleep:

      • Prioritize good sleep hygiene and aim for 7-9 hours of sleep each night.
    8. Medication:

      • Consult a healthcare provider about migraine prevention medications.
      • Use over-the-counter pain relievers sparingly to avoid medication overuse headaches.
    9. Caffeine Management:

      • If you consume caffeine, maintain a consistent intake to avoid withdrawal-triggered migraines.
    10. Hormonal Management:

      • Discuss hormone therapy or birth control options with your healthcare provider if hormonal fluctuations trigger migraines.
