GIVE YOURSELF A BREAK WOMAN. Pampering, love and some TLC is all ya need.
3. Call in sick, stay in bed, light some candles and put a face mask on.
Don’t want to leave the house? Been there. Have a staycation, turn your phone off and slide under your bed covers for a solid day of rest. Trust us, it’ll help.
4. MOVIE MARATHON. PRONTO.
Watch allllll the Turkish dramas, allll the chick flicks and hey, horror movies? Whatever you’re in to, get to it girl.
5. Strength is in numbers, ladies, strength.
If you like having company, call your friends over for a girls night. Have the ultimate slumber party with your best friends – you’ll forget about the torture of periods alllll together in a fun
That is all.
You know there may be a point when you’re gonna want your emotions to flood out of your system. Promise no one will be watching and no one will be judging, let the floodgates open, love you.
8. Pretend it’s not even there.
Ignorance is bliss and you know what’s blissful? NOT PERIOD PAIN. (We know that’s not very practical but whatever, we’re trying everything here, ahkay?)
9. Try working out! No, seriously.
Studies show that sometimes some light exercise can actually provide relief from your period pain! Now we’re not saying start the 42-day challenge on your first day, but some walking in the park can do nothing but help.
10. Breathe. Take it in.
Sometimes, there is no such thing as a magical list of remedies. In fact, like a lot of things in life, all you can do is give it time, it’ll be over before you know it! Until next month, of course.
So there ya have it ladies, a couple of words of wisdom from us to you. Though this list may not take away ALL of your pain, we think it’s a start. Love you.
