Here are Andrea’s 5 easy tips to do every day to give you the best chance to stay headache free.
1 Drink lots of water. You should have about 8 glasses a day to keep you hydrated.
2 Take a magnesium supplement. Magnesium is food for the muscles and reduces tension that can cause headaches.
3 Take a fish oil or turmeric supplement. Lots of headaches are associated with systemic or whole body inflammation and a fish oil or turmeric supplement is a great way to reduce inflammation in the body.
4 Do a light weight, high repetition, upper body, weights program. A class like yoga, barre or Pilates is great for this. You need to build strength in your muscles to prevent poor posture.
5 Aim to reduce stress levels. My favourite two things to prevent stress are participating in a Yin Yoga class, or listening to the Headspace App.
