We all know how that time of the month can be. It’s painful, annoying and stressful. Here are some tips to make it a little easier to get through.
1. Take it easy
Know that it is ok to take it slow that first or second day. Your body is going through a lot and it’s ok to just take a minute.
2. Take a pain reliever
You might not want to get up to get it or you just feel you don’t need it, but when you do you’ll regret not taking them. Save yourself and take some before you regret it.
3. Make sure you eat foods with plenty of proteins and iron.
Obviously you’re loosing blood, so therefore, you’re loosing iron. Make sure you are replenishing yourself.
4. Take a warm bubble bath
Yes, I said it. Take a bath! It can help you relax and boost your mood. I promise it won’t look like a crime scene if you take one.
5. Eat that chocolate bar
It won’t hurt you and it’s ok to indulge yourself sometimes.
6. Use a heating pad for cramps
Heating pads give almost instant relief when it comes to period cramps. So sit back and throw that heating pad on.
7. Drink plenty of water
Yes this is still important. Water is great in more ways than one.
8. Use feminine wipes
They are great to use to freshen up throughout the day. Keep them in your purse or backpack to keep them handy.
9. Do a light workout
I know working out doesn’t seem like a first choice, but it does put you in a better mood and it increases your blood flow, which can help cramps.
10. Change your sanitary products
This is so important! Don’t wear them for too long and make sure you change them to avoid overflow.
