Migraines.

Nothing ruins a perfectly good workday quite like a migraine. A migraine might be mild enough to where it might make work a little more challenging, or it might be severe that you cannot work at all. If you suffer from migraines, it is important to know what your triggers are and to plan out how to manage them at work.

  1. Tailor your work space to decrease the chances of a migraine.
  • Fluorescent lights are common triggers. Some bulbs can be removed, diffusers can be installed or if necessary tinted glasses may help
  • Avoid glares. Position our computer away from windows and direct light. Wearing glasses designed for computer work can help immensely.
  • Keep your workspace quiet. Ask to move if necessary. Noise cancelling or noise isolating headphones may be a solution if moving workspaces isn’t an option.
  • If working from home is an option, take advantage of it. Working from home allows you to more actively control your work environment.

2. Keep things regular.

  • Keep your meal times consistent and eat every 3 – 4 hours. Keep snacks available if you know that you may miss a meal.
  • Hydrate often.
  • Get 8 Hours of sleep, regularly.
  • Lower your caffeine intake.

3. Have a back up plan.

  • If you miss work, make up the time
  • Swap shifts with coworkers
  • Have a contingency plan in place. If you need to leave early, make sure your work gets covered
