Drink water before eating
You know you should get plenty of fluids—here’s how much water you should be drinking each day. And according to research reported in The Harvard Health Letter, eating can lead to a drop in blood pressure, which is associated with feelings of dizziness and lightheadedness. Called postprandial hypotension, the condition can be alleviated by drinking a glass of water 15 minutes before eating, one of our home remedies for dizziness.
Avoid hot showers and baths
Although it may sound less than pleasant, there are eight good reasons to take a cold shower. While most of us would rather stick to the steaming hot type, pregnant women could be susceptible to dizziness from the high temps thanks to a hormone shift. According to the Mayo Clinic Guide to a Healthy Pregnancy, those hormones cause your blood vessels to relax and widen in order to increase blood flow to your baby, which can lower your blood pressure. The result is that you may be prone to feeling woozy from time to time. In order to keep your blood pressure from dropping even lower, skip hot baths and showers and bathe in water that’s closer to body temperature. It should feel warm and soothing, but not hot.
