If you are getting a headache every time that you are using bleach, you may be using too high of a concentration of bleach in water.

A 1 in 5 solution of 1 part bleach (usually 3-6% sodium hypochlorite) to 4 parts water is a standard concentration that is used in hospitals and buildings in the United States.

You might consider that you have proper ventilation when you are cleaning; that is, opening the windows and ensuring that there is good air flow when you are cleaning will likely be helpful.
