  • Avoid eyestrain by working in a well-lit environment and wearing glasses or contact lenses.
  • Sleep the number of hours you need to feel rested and alert. This is vital for avoiding a headache.
  • Stretch frequently if your job requires you to remain seated for long periods of time.
  • Get your teeth checked regularly. Periodic headaches may be linked to a dental problem.
  • Watch what you eat. Chocolate, wine and aged cheeses can trigger headaches.
  • Avoid very cold food and beverages.
  • Manage your stress. Learn stress management techniques, get into an exercise programme, or try yoga or meditation.
