Make Your Home Friendly During a Migraine
It's bad enough that we have to deal with unfriendly environments when we're away from home. Our homes should be our refuge, the place that's safest and most comfortable for us. Let's take a look at ways to make our homes more friendly toward us when we have a Migraine or headache:
1) Reduce or eliminated perfumed and fragranced items in your home, especially if they're a trigger for you. If fragrance seems not to be a problem for you, or if it's a minor problem, limit yourself to a single fragrance rather than mixing fragrances. Consider candles, room fresheners, potpourri, etc.
Remember, fragrances can quickly gang up on us when we have a headache or Migraine. They can very quickly add to our nausea, making our home an unpleasant place for us. So, plan ahead, and reduce fragrances now.
2) Following the fragrance thought: If you're sensitive to fragrances, keep that in mind when you shop for cleaning products. Even if they don't contain fragrance, the smell of the chemicals in them can linger and either be a trigger or make you feel worse if you have a headache or Migraine. Even some of the products that make the bathroom bowl "sparkling blue" have fragrance, so read the labels...
