Ways To Feel Better During Your Period

April 24, 2016

I was recently inspired by someone's blog post (read here) and I thought about how many bloggers mainly talk about the things aren't majorly important sometimes. For example, fashion week or their dog, such they're nice to read about but they don't always help you in times of need. So I decided to write up this blog post on ways to feel better during your period.

1. Exercise lightly
Okay I know that this sounds like a crazy piece of advice, but for any of you 'gym junkies' out there (including me) and you still want to exercise, I'd suggest to do something that requires less running around and maybe more sitting down, for example working on arms, legs or abs... But hey, be my guest, if you want to do a full body workout, go ahead! GIRL POWER!

2. Eating things that make you feel better
Yeah I know, you shouldn't eating junk food, but obviously periods don't make us feel like we can compete in the Olympics, take on a lion in a fight, or even stand up sometimes, so I think it's okay once a month to eat something naughty, whether it be sweets, burgers or a whole Easter egg.

3. Take a deep breath
I know for me, this definitely works. because with me being your typical girl on her period, I get very angry randomly, so knowing full well that it's down to hormones and not just a short fuse, taking a breath definitely helps me to recoup and realise that I'm being an idiot and crying over the fact that I have to make my bed.

4. Hot Water Bottles/ Hot Drinks/ Warm blankets
Everyone knows that cramps can be a bitch, more than a frequently flowing gift every month, and I find that by cuddling up to something warm definitely relieves some of the pain, if not all of it. Whilst also making you toasty and incredibly comfortable.
