While attending school from home, or presenting an idea to your colleagues online while in pajamas, period cramps can make things a bit more difficult. But that doesn’t mean we have to set ourselves back.
There are ways in which we can make sure that your work or studies aren’t entirely affected by periods or cramps.
Here are 5 steps to do so:
1. Track and plan
We have always emphasized on the importance of tracking your periods. It not only lets you be more aware of your cycles but also be prepared with everything you need. You will be able to predict when you can expect your periods to arrive, which means you will not be caught off guard during work.
In fact, tracking your periods can be very helpful in diagnosing Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS).
2. Pack up the essentials
Yes, we are all at home! Which means there is no need to carry anything around. But even so, it is always a good idea to keep the essentials in stock. You can also customise a period plan which will ensure that your pads reach you right on time. Also, it gives you the opportunity to choose your pads according to your flow.

3. Keep a heat patch in hand
During period cramps, a little warmth can soothe you. Nua’s Cramp Comfort is made of 100% natural ingredients which are safe and can be used even after the cramps are relieved. Stick the heat patch on your underwear and let the warmth spread to your lower abdomen, relaxing the muscles. You can keep the patch on for up to 8 hours.
We are also happy to share with you that Nua’s Cramp Comfort is Biocert Natural Certified.
4. Wear comfortable clothes
Working remotely can come with its own advantages! Such as wearing pajamas to work. During your periods, your body is going through a lot on its own. Create some breathing space and for air to come in by wearing loose, comfortable clothes.
And if you are somebody who has to step out for work, even then wear something that doesn’t come in tight contact with your skin, keep things easy and flowy.
5. Take a break!
Let’s be honest with each other. We don’t prioritise ourselves enough. But isn’t it fair to let your body relax when it is doing so much for you? When you are in pain or the cramps are really getting into you, talk to your colleagues about it. Let them know about your situation and take a break. If something is absolutely urgent, prioritise your tasks. This will give you the space to work and relax.
We hope that these tips will help you cope better with work or studies during your periods. It is important that you do not overdo yourself and when needed, stop and simply rest.
