Sedentary Lifestyle
Present-day jobs require significant concentration, particularly desk-related work. Case studies indicate that staring at screens for a prolonged period of time can be a cause of migraines due to poor blood circulation. Set a timer to leave your desk at least once every hour, and stretch out those joints and muscles.

Hormonal Changes
Hormone changes, especially in women, can trigger migraines. These headaches are usually related to the timing of a period cycle, either before or during menstruation. A drop in estrogen levels are often related to a migraine. To help prevent a recurrence of migraines, women are advised to avoid medications that contain estrogen.
