Let’s face it. There’s nothing fun about dealing with the time of the month. You’re uncomfortable, moody, and just waiting for it to be all over. While there are a variety of amazing tips out there, it’s important to remember that everyone’s body works differently and the number one tip is to do what works best for you.


Tips for Surviving Your Period

  1. Get Comfy. Sometimes the best medicine for yourself is getting in your lazy clothes, curling up on the couch, and binge-watching your favorite TV show. Be forewarned, you will probably want to grab the tissues, crying a bit might be inevitable 😉relaxing
  2. Chocolate. You’ve probably heard or even experienced a sweet tooth while you’re dealing with your period. It’s no myth that chocolate can help improve your mood. If you reach for dark chocolate, it’s actually a good snack! I’m always happy when I make a run for an ice cream shake. 13769423_582815721888412_2894836347044363613_n
  3. Hydrate. It’s important to stay hydrated so grab that ice water, infuse some fruit, whatever it is to push that water!
  4. Pamper yourself. Whether you feel like going to the salon for a pedicure or you want to DIY at home, indulge yourself! When I’m feeling blah, I know putting on my makeup and getting myself ready for the day boosts my confidence and makes me feel better. Grab your favorite face mask. Pour some epsom salts and oils in the bath and relax while reading a book or your favorite magazine. One thing to avoid during your period? No Waxing! Due to the hormones in your body, your skin is more sensitive during this time so getting those brows waxed will hurt more during this time of month.
  5. Take a nap. Your body feels out of whack, you are tired, you are stressed. There’s no guilt in closing your eyes and getting some extra rest.
  6. Find a feminine product that works for you. I remember in high school feeling embarrassed having to hide the pad or tampon as you ran from locker to bathroom. The thing is, all girls have to deal with it! U by Kotex® offers a variety of products to make you comfortable during your period. These new, just for you products found at Walmart provide you the protection you need at a great value.
