Today’s prompt for National Migraine Awareness month: Migraine Awareness Month #4:  “June Is Bustin’ Out All Over!” What’s the best tip you can offer others for having some summer fun despite Migraines? 

Well, that’s a tough one. Heat and sunshine are challenges for me. I just have to really listen to my body, and not push myself beyond my limits – which unfortunately are often way below the limits of my friends and family.

  • Hats, sunglasses, light breathable clothing are a must.
  • Stay in the shade when that’s an option.
  • Drink plenty of water, and avoid beverages that aren’t water.
  • Take frequent breaks if you’re playing sports or doing yard work.
  • Head for the A/C or shade when you need to – don’t wait until it’s too late.
  • Get cool water on your skin if you start to feel too warm. A damp cloth on your neck can help, holding a cool drink, dipping your feet in a cool pool can all lower your body temperature.
  • Remember to eat regularly, and try to keep your sleep schedule regular. Late nights and odd mealtimes can really mess you up.
