4 ways to pamper yourself during your period

2 Mins read

Periods are way more than bleeding 5-6 days a month. PMS symptoms like period cramps, mood swings, and bloating can really take a toll on our physical as well as mental health. We all have been in situations where we don’t feel the greatest and decide to ghost our friends or cancel much-awaited plans. 

It is okay to take a step back and be there for yourself. Even making minimal efforts can transform low moods with something that brings up a smile to your face.

Here are 4 ways you can pamper yourself during periods:

Get some sleep 

It is common to experience fatigue and tiredness before, during, and after menstruation. These times can be exhausting and it is important to get enough sleep. This will not only leave you more energized but also help you calm your hormones. 

Take a screen break, put on some light music and create a relaxed atmosphere that encourages sleep. Turn off those alarms for a while!       . 

Plan a movie night with yourself

A movie date with yourself with your favorite series or movies would serve as a perfect distraction from the PMS symptoms.  Get comfortable on your couch with your snacks and set a new binge-watching record!

Opt for healthy and guilt-free snacks to keep in check with your calories.

Put on your comfiest outfit

 Period cramps and mood swings can already make us feel irritated and uneasy. Therefore, it is important to stay comfortable during your periods and give a break to wearing tight jeans and uncomfortable dresses. Flowy tops and sweatpants are the highly preferred period outfit. 

If you’re a pajama person, wear your most comfortable pair and level up your coziness. (It is the right time to steal your dad’s or partner’s t-shirts!)

Treat your bad mood with good food

During periods, your body goes through a hormonal roller coaster and makes you crave sugary and unhealthy food. It is important to listen to your body and nourish it with essential nutrients. Treat yourself with food that serves your taste buds but make sure to equip it with healthy ingredients.

Sometimes it gets difficult to prioritize and embrace self-care amidst our busy schedules. But these little things can help to a great extent. We hope these tips help you find relaxation and peace during your menstruation.
