How to have a Peaceful and Painless Period
Your not-so-favorite time of the month is back and you are struggling with those mood swings real bad. We have all been there, haven't we? The week around menstruation is a not-so-jolly one, but that doesn't mean that there isn’t anything you can do about it. Be it insufferable period cramps, bloating, or high cravings, there is a lot that you can do from the comfort of your home that is sure to aid in the process of it all, other than just popping an anti-cramps pill. Here, we have a list of remedies for you to try to have a smooth & painless period week.
1. More water will help you feel less bloated.
Bloating can be uncomfortable and aggravate menstrual cramps. Although it might seem counterintuitive, drinking water can lessen bloating and some of the pain that comes along with your period. Additionally, consuming hot liquids can relax your muscles and improve blood flow throughout your body. By doing this, you may experience fewer uterine cramps.
2. Consume inflammatory-reducing foods
There are some delicious foods that can help with cramp relief naturally. Foods that reduce inflammation can ease uterine tension and improve blood flow. Eat more fruits, vegetables, and spices like turmeric, ginger, garlic, pineapples, berries, and tomatoes. Additionally helpful in reducing inflammation are leafy green vegetables, almonds, walnuts, and fatty fish like salmon.
3. Use heat to ease cramps
Your muscles can relax, blood flow can be improved, and tension can be relieved with a little heat. Try relaxing in a hot bath, using a heating pad while sitting, or taking a hot shower.
Exercise may be the last thing on your mind if you're in pain. However, even light exercise causes the release of endorphins, which improve mood, lessen pain, and relax muscles. You might only need fifteen minutes of yoga, light stretching, or walking to experience the advantages of exercise on your body and mind.
