EXERCISING ON YOUR PERIOD?
I’m sure all of us girls can agree… PERIODS SUCK! I don’t think there’s possibly a good time for you period to come, so, here’s some of our tips for when it does!
Listen to your body
As we all know, everyone is different, and so are our periods! Some girls may experience period symptoms much worse than other, and that’s completely ok! It’s important for us ALL to listen to our bodies during that time of the month! Some girls may want to lie in bed and eat chocolate, whereas some may feel ready to conquer the world… both are completely ok! The most important thing is to listen to your body and know what it needs when you’re on your period.
2. Get active
Whether it’s going for a short walk, hitting the gym, going for a run or anything in between, getting active can help boost your mood and overall the way you’re feeling when it’s that time of the month. At first it may feel hard, and like the last thing you want to be doing, but trust us! Getting your body moving can be one of the best ways to conquer that time of the month!
3. Know what works best for you
Get to know what works best for you during your period! Some girls may find the first few days harder than the end and some visa versa! It’s important to know how your body reacts and deals with that time of the month, and how you can help it as well! Get to know what makes you feel better if you get cramps etc. for example does having a bath help, or using a heat pack? Experiment around a bit until you find yourself a ‘period action plan’ which you can use every-time to help you through your period!
