Us ladies all have it (or will eventually). That time of the month that unfailingly visits us- whether we welcome it or not. And to be honest, we should welcome it. It isn’t a bad thing. But, it can be uncomfortable and inconvenient sometimes.
So, to help all of you girls and women out there, I’m going to give you some helpful and natural tips and remedies that will ease your pain (and dread) of that time of month.
Natural remedies + tips
- Healthy eating + h2o. Can I say it enough? Eating life-giving foods and keeping hydrated will help cravings stay at bay, and your body to function and feel good overall. If you want to indulge a little, check out these yummy and healthy treats below!
- Add a couple hormone balancing superfoods to your diet. Maca root powder and rasberry leaf tea are two amazing foods that balance hormones, relieve PMS, and also taste super good. I love adding maca powder to my smoothies and to my cookie dough balls. And you can sip on the tea while doing your self care routine.
- Do some stretching pilates. It’s so relaxing and I always feel way better after doing it. To join an awesome sisterhood of easy pilates, recipes, and empowerment, click here!
- Take a relaxing shower or bath. I love taking detox baths, but if that’s a no-can-do for you, then just take a nice shower with a sugar scrub and face mask. For some more lovely & natural beauty recipes, click here!
- Don’t exert yourself too much. Be kind and gentle to your body during this time, and give yourself some grace. I will skip my intense workouts and swap them for some relaxing pilates, or just modify them.
- Heat pack. This is a super simple way to relieve back and abdomen pain. Just relax and read a book while adding some cozy warmth to uncomfortable areas.
- Have a positive attitude. I know that for me, I can get pretty moody during this time, so taking an “attitude reset” by analyzing my thoughts and then replacing them with positive ones is super helpful!
- Do something fun! Just because you aren’t feelin it 100%, doesn’t mean that you have to crawl in a corner and cry. Do something that you enjoy. Go on a walk, continue a hobby, etc. Just because it’s “that time of month” doesn’t mean that your life stops!
I hope that these natural remedies and tips were helpful for you! What kind of things do you do to feel good during your “time of month”?
