It's that time of year again . . .black cats and witch's hats are in our rear view mirror and ahead of us is a sea of turkeys, wrapping paper, candles, elves and more. That's right, it's the Holiday Season, and while that brings much joy to many people, it can also bring on headaches or migraines.
That's why the makers of Excedrin® Extra Strength are inviting you to "Take a Holiday from Headaches" by following these simple steps from Dr. Keri Peterson, MD:
- Stick to your regular routine. Eating, sleeping and exercising as you do the rest of the year can help reduce the chances of getting a headache. (1)
- Manage your time and plan ahead. Coordinate plans and responsibilities in advance with relatives and friends, compose set menus when hosting a party and try to purchase gifts early so you're not rushing at the last minute. (1)
- Stay in ventilated spaces. As you browse through the mall, watch out for those scented candles or perfume is you are sensitive to smells. (2)
- Eat and drink in moderation. Eat, drink and be merry, but try not to consume sweets or alcoholic beverages in excess, as they could trigger headaches. (2)
