Healthy Lifestyle

Avatar Dr. Kyle Bickel Jun 21, 2019

Headache is one of the pain conditions that really can respond wonderfully to a healthy lifestyle. Everything your mother told you to do – she was right. Eat three square meals a day – don’t skip meals. If you have big gaps between meals, you might need to have a snack. Exercise regularly. Exercise at approximately the same time of day every day. It doesn’t have to be a lot. Even 20 minutes of exercise makes a difference. Sleep regularly. Having a fluctuating sleep schedule is a real trigger of headaches for patients who are susceptible to headaches. Having a regular sleep schedule is really important for the patient who is prone to headaches. You want to avoid variation of the sleep schedule – both the bedtime and wakeup time.
