Self-Care Practices for People with Migraine

Drink Enough Water

Dehydration may cause a migraine attack. While it can be a risk factor anytime during the year, it is particularly common during the summer or hot seasons. To reduce the risk, make sure to drink a lot of fluids daily. Ideally, a typical adult needs at least 2 liters per day. The recommended intake can vary from person to person, depending on the gender, age, and level of physical activities. Go for plain water, mineral water, sports drinks, or juices. Avoid alcohol and caffeinated beverages like soda or coffee as they may actually dehydrate the body. It is also good to eat veggies and fruits as they contain a lot of water. [1]
