Hello lovers! Hope that you're all doing great today!
So let's talk about periods.
They are natural, they are a sign that a women is healthy but they can also be very very annoying and extremely painful.
In fact 1 in every 5 women struggles with extremely painful periods.
I am one of them.
Period pain is very stigmatized. Whenever I talk about my struggles with period pain I'm often told that I'm overreacting and that it can't be that painful.
I got comments like those from man and women alike.
So for all my people who struggle with extremely painful periods, you are not overreacting and exaggerating, periods can be hell.
I have personally struggled with getting out of bed, going to school, vomiting and feeling overly tired.
So today I'm gonna list down some way I personally deal with my bloody Mary.
Let's start shall we?

1. 3 words: HOT WATE BOTTLES

Temporarily removed
Those are my lord and savior. Without them my cramps would kill me.

2. Drinking tea instead of coffee

The first 3 days of my period are the most painful, so I replace my daily coffee with tea

3. Yoga

As I have already said I can't really move much in the first few days of my cycle so I do a lotttt of resting and drink a lot of water

5. Wear comfy socks

My feet swell up so bad when I'm on my period and they are constantly ice cold so I always wear some compfy fuzzy socks

6. Eat a lot of veggies, fruits and soups

Warm home cocked foods such as soups help me maintain my daily calorie intake even when I'm too nauseous to eat anything.
