Health Tips For When You’re On Your Period

Okay, so we always talk about health tips for weight loss, weight gain, etc… but what about health tips for when your menstruating? So, this article is for all us women who menstruate! I honestly had no idea how MUCH making a few simple lifestyle changes can make your load not only lighter, but lessen your period cramps too. So, let’s get into it:

  1. Plan one meal a day to be a MASSIVE salad. In mine I include mixed leafy greens, tuna, tomatoes, carrots, avocado or a healthy source of fat. And what truly helped my gut is drizzling it with a homemade dressing made from lemon juice and apple cider vinegar. This has helped my skin, bloating, and really everything.
  2. Drink your damn water. Since I started drinking warm water with every meal and heaps in between! My cramps are practically gone.
  3. Vitamin C. I actually started making ‘juice’ with a third of a grapefruit, half an orange, one kiwi fruit and half a lemon all in a food processor or blender with some ice and water and this has helped my energy levels, fought off a cold, protected me from all my sick friends, and helped with my period.
  4. NO PROCESSED SUGAR THE DAYS LEADING UP TO YOUR PERIOD! I see you with your mars bar! put the mars bar down and get some fruit. I get the temptation but honestly, your body will be thanking you for this one. Avoid processed foods as well and keep it simple, trust me, it’s what your body needs.
  5. Exercise while on your period. I know you don’t feel like it, I know you just want to stay curled up with a heat pack but this will help. Try it out, doesn’t have to be anything intense, just get yourself moving for a little bit!

Take care of your body and your body will take care of you. Thank you for reading. Be sure to subscribe down below to get notified when I post more recipes like this!
