Menstrual pain can be anything, from actual physical pain to feeling emotionally unstable due to severe hormonal changes in your body. Here are 9 ways you can ease yourself during this time, or even when you just want to relax and unwind sometimes:

1. Drink warm beverages

Drinking warm beverages helps sooth and relax your body. These beverages could be hot chocolate, different types of tea or even simple water. You can just grab a cup of any of these and sit down and relax in a chair while reading a book, a distraction is the best form of relieving this pain.
P.S: Consuming excess coffee during your period can be harmful and may make your symptoms severe.

2. Snuggle in your fluffiest blankets

Warmth is very important when you're going through that time of the month because it helps relaxing your muscles. So grab as many of the softest blankets you have and cuddle in them while listening to some good music to pump your mood up!

3. Munch on some of your favorite treats

Something that every girl loves when on her period is her favorite food, as mentioned earlier there are a lot of hormonal changes happening in your body thus getting food that gives you comfort will help numb the pain you're feeling because it releases the 'happy hormone" named endorphins. I personally love to munch on some really delicious variety of sushi ;)

4. Dress up

A spa is a great place to be able to relax your overworked muscles and spend some alone time. Getting those aromas inhaled is a great way for your body to get some rest from all that work it's been doing.

6. Exercise

Drinking water decreases your chance of water retention during your period, and thus DOES NOT cause bloating, instead prevents it. Taking plenty of water is extremely beneficial, periods or no periods.

9. Sleep!
