A woman’s period sometimes seems to be a real struggle. Some pass it not even noticing (well, almost not noticing), others suffer a lot every time, every month. Furthermore, when aging, women are more likely to feel mad and unhealthy before menstruation, having a so-called premenstrual syndrome. We’ve got some tips that help to pass through a woman’s period easily.
Many women have certain problems during their period, and the most common are:
- mood swings;
- changes in appetite;
- weight gain;
- body aches.
Woman’s period survival kit
Follow these easy steps to pass it feeling healthy and happy!
Use the best means of hygiene
The cause of discomfort during a woman’s period is often the wrong choice of them. Try to figure out what is most comfortable for you. Maybe your body will prefer organic cotton tampons, or thick pads, or menstrual cups. Be sure you always have all you need at home, in your purse, and at your office, too.
Consult your doctor
In some cases, severe premenstrual syndrome and painful or heavy menstruation may be a sign of disease. In addition, your doctor can help to choose the right contraceptive pills and pain relief medications for easier periods.
Pay attention to what you eat
First of all, try to maintain your usual healthy eating plan. But if you feel like you need a chocolate bar, eat it and don’t worry: in a couple of days you’ll burn all these calories. On the other side, keep in mind that woman’s period is also a period when it’s important not to consume too much sugar and salt.
Please your body…
Seems like a period is the best time to relax. Take a warm bath with your favorite bathing products, decrease the amount of physical activity if you feel too weak to exercise, and replace your usual workout with yoga or stretching.
…and your soul
Do not blame yourself if you feel mad or irritated. Do what you really love to!
