Veeda tampons on yoga mat and workout gear

We all may dread this time of the month, and for very good reason. Bears can smell the menstruation – Anchorman reference, anyone? No? Ok. On a more serious note, if you have an ovarian cyst like I do (mine is nothing serious) it can sometimes make your periods unpleasant. These are a few ways that help to make that time of the month a bit more likable.

Choose protection that is comfortable
We all have our preferences, but as for me I always end up back to my trusted pads. I know pads get a bad rep for the cause of leaks and chemicals that are bad for you and the environment, but as a long time pad user I can say pads have come a long way and aren’t what you once remembered them to be. The Veeda Natural Cotton Pads are a great example of that since they free of chemicals, synthetics, dyes, are hypoallergenic, fragrance free, and best of all are biodegradable.

Eat clean
I know, I know – you just want to eat everything and anything bad when it’s that time of the month, but if you’re already feeling bloated it’s best to stay clear of anything fried or loaded with a lot of fat. It depends on what kind of diet you follow, but I find sticking to healthy hearty meals to be the most comforting food throughout these times. Soups, fresh salads, and tons of carbs are my go tos.

Read your feelings
I don’t know about you, but I’m an emotional wreak when I’m menstruating. One moment I’m cheerful and smiling, then the next moment I’m crying over spilled milk. You won’t catch me watching The Notebook, but you will find me relaxing with books along with the subject on love. It’s probably the hormones that get me in the romantic and loving mood. My current read right now is The 5 Love Languages – might I also mention it’s the first time I’m reading a book on Google Play Books and it’s pretty awesome to have a book on my phone with me wherever I go!

How do you make your period a more comfortable one?

There is a stigma around periods that overall, they suck - cramps hurt, women get very emotional, and our mood can change like a flick of a light switch! However, PMS doesn’t necessarily have to be a bad thing if you work with your period rather than against it. Yes, cramps still suck, and it can be difficult controlling your up and down emotions, but once you are able to distinctly recognise your personal menstrual cycle, you can use it to your advantage!
