What Are We Up To (11)

B*tch Period Cramps? So Do We…

I’m sure most of you would have your holidays booked and are all ready to go! Here are some essential items and hacks that you never knew you needed:

Tip #1: A walk (or jog) in the park.

Yes, exactly what you just read.

Although the last thing you want to do when your uterus feels like it’s trying to claw its way out of your body is go running, but when you exercise, your body releases endorphins, a hormone that makes you feel good.

Those endorphins can counteract the bad hormones that give you cramps (prostaglandins). So, get your body moving!!

Tip #2: Cut down on coffee.

Caffeine can cause your body to retain more water, resulting in a nasty bloated feeling, and worsened cramps.

Don’t make things harder than they already are. Just cut out a bit of your daily caffeine.

Other alternatives to coffee include some delicious tea that could also help with your period. 

Tip #3: Darkest Chocolate Ever.

You’re losing heaps of magnesium on your period, but a 70% cacao treat can help you regain that nutrient as it slips out of the body.

Now go get that bar of chocolate you’ve been eyeing for so long!

If you need more reasons to indulge in that bar of chocolate, read this article for more benefits that dark chocolate has to offer you! Just remember to reduce the amount of sugar in those sweet delights! 

Mix it up – in beverage form, sweet cakes or even dripping hot fudge.

Tip #4: Skip Those Tight Pants.

You’re already uncomfortable, so why torture yourself by squeezing your bloated tummy into your tightest of pants?

Opt for the flowy or large-size dresses that you’ve been pushing aside in your closet! Comfort and style in one, win-win!

Best part? No one ever knows you are constantly bloated during your period.

Tip #5: Heat Up Those Womb.

On certain months Mother Nature can be especially cruel and hit us like a tornado ripping through town. On such days where a cup of hot cocoa just won’t do, I have the perfect solution for you – Heat therapy!

Andddddddddddd… my sister and I found a way for you to enjoy heat therapy without using any costs! Watch the video below to find out more:

Bear in mind that these cramps are a natural part and parcel of our bodies, and this too, shall pass!

When you celebrate yourself and your choices, the world celebrates with you.
