Period Life Hacks/Tips - REAL TALK

Ciao lovelies! Today’s post is for anyone who gets periods. We are talking about how to manage your menstrual cycle, because sometimes it’s hard because you feel so tired and lethargic and worn out. So what can you do to help yourself?


CRAMPING TIPS:

If you’re cramping really badly and have already taken something like Ibuprofen or Tylenol  in the recommended dose, here’s some other ways to alleviate cramping/ease your pain:

-          You can use a heating pad or make your own (using this tutorial by Instructables). If you don’t have a heating pad and don’t have energy to make one, try throwing a towel into the dryer and holding it on your stomach once it comes out warm. This will help with the pain.

-          Avoid caffeine about a week before your period and on your period so that the cramping isn’t as severe.

-          Drinking lots of water can help alleviate some of the pain.

-          Exercising the week before can help, as well as doing simple yoga poses during the period week.

MOOD SWINGS/IRRITABILITY TIPS:

-          Taking vitamin B 12 in recommended doses can be good for managing mood swings, as can vitamin D during the winter months. 

-          Journaling can help manage unhappy feelings.

-          Reminding yourself that your feelings, while valid, are a product of hormonal changes and don’t reflect you as a person.

BLOATING TIP:

-          Drinking lots of water and avoiding salty foods before your period and during can help with bloating
