With regular exercise you can prevent tension-type headaches and migraine attacks!

  • It’s awesome if you get 1 hour of exercise a day, even better if it’s outdoors! This can also include going to school (if you walk, bike or are otherwise active) or playing during recess.
  • Also, do some sports. You don’t have to become a pro athlete! Regular exercise is the key. Therefore it’s better to swim, cycle, jog, etc. for 30 minutes 3 to 4 times each week rather than running a half marathon once a week.

Why should I care about exercise?
