If there’s one thing that all women can agree on, it’s that periods are a bit of a hassle. They are a hassle to deal with and they are a hassle to think about. Most of us would prefer to do without periods altogether, but this isn’t an option. So, the focus needs to be on making your period as enjoyable as possible. A lot of women initially think that periods can’t be enjoyable, that there is just no way those few days of the month can be anything more than bearable. However, that’s not the case. With a little bit of planning and a better understanding of your body, you can make your period a more pleasant experience.
Making Your Period More Enjoyable
Very few women will ever get to the stage where they are looking forward to their period, as it can be a huge inconvenience. But, that’s not to say that there aren’t ways to make your period a little more enjoyable.
- Always Be Prepared - One of the biggest annoyances is having to deal with your period when you are out and about, such as when you are at work or seeing friends. When you are prepared, this isn't something that you’ll need to worry about quite as much. A lot of women choose to use a menstrual cup as it takes care of things for up to 12 hours at a time. Knowing that you don’t have to empty it any time soon can help you to push your period to the back of your mind.
- Know How to Stop Cramps - If you are someone who suffers with cramps on their period, take the time to work out how to stop them. Everyone has different techniques and remedies, so it’s important to know what works for you. Being able to stop cramps quickly can help to make your period a lot less painful.
- Don’t Forget to Treat Yourself - There are very few upsides to getting your period, especially if it comes at an inconvenient time. To make yourself feel better and to push yourself through until the end, treat yourself in some way. Give yourself something to look forward to, such as your favourite sugary snack after work or an hour at your favourite workout class.
Everyone has a slightly different experience with their period, so it’s important to learn what works for you. Anything that makes you dread your period a little less is worth doing.
