Exercise and Migraines
I’ve read many articles over the last couple of months that say that exercising helps headaches and migraines. I have to admit I’ve often scoffed at those articles. The thought of exercising with a headache, let alone a migraine seemed ridiculous. Now, I’m not saying I exercise when I have a migraine, that would just be crazy! However, I have been exercising for 3 months and my migraines and daily headaches have been cut in half! Did you hear me, by HALF!!!!
Here are some of the articles that I have read about exercise, migraines and headaches.
I usually do about 30 minutes of plain cardio about 2 to 4 times a week (depends on how much time I have) and 2 HIIT routines a week, plus strength training. I also pay very close attention to my posture at work as I’m a Systems Administrator who sits for most of my work day. I also try and get regular sleep at minimum 6 to 8 hours every night.
