The amount and quality of sleep are considered common factors affecting migraines and tension headaches.
Amount of Sleep: Three out of four sufferers specify lack of sleep as one of their triggers. In addition to this, almost one in four say that sleeping too long or waking up too late can cause attacks. During the build up of a migraine, the average length of sleep is usually shorter.
Quality of Sleep: A deeper and more restful sleep allows you start your day in positive spirits and boosts your physical and mental health. Bad quality of sleep together with too little of it is for many people a sure cause of migraines.
