Research has shown that mind training may improve migraine disability and wellbeing. 

A new study suggests that mind training can teach new ways to respond to stress, which is the most commonly reported migraine trigger. 

Migraine is the second-leading cause of disability worldwide, and many patients with migraine stop medication because of side effects or ineffectiveness. 

The neurology study involved 89 adults with four to 20 monthly migraine days. 

Mindfulness participants reported a greater decrease in percent change from baseline in perception of experimental pain unpleasantness and intensity, researchers report.
