Health Tip: Prevent Headaches in Teens

(HealthDay News) -- Headaches are common among teenagers, whose busy and irregular schedules can be a prime factor.

The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests how teens can help prevent headaches:

  • Get an appropriate amount of sleep each night.

  • Eat meals on a consistent schedule.

  • Get regular physical activity.

  • Figure out any pattern of behavior that seems to trigger your headaches. If possible, avoid those activities.
