PERIOD

Period. The center of your health.

There are many avenues for a woman to pursue when confronted with the emotional and physical changes during her menstrual cycle.

Women have approximately 450 menstrual cycles in their lifetime. Usually, women view their cycles as a burden. But your monthly cycle has four unique phases and each one brings out different physical and emotional strengths in you.

Learn how to work with your own internal cycle instead of against it. This is the key to maximizing your true potential in all areas of your life and staying confident!

Take control over your cycle.

Your period changes throughout your life.

Just when you start to feel like you can predict exactly when your period is going to show, everything can change. This is thanks to the hormone shifts that happen throughout your lifetime. That’s why it is important to track your period and be aware of all the symptoms that may occur.

Overcome the emotional roller coaster and cramps.

One of the most effective cures for taking control of these mood swings is aerobic exercise combined with Yoga and meditation. Exercise relieves cramps because it helps release beta-endorphins, which ease muscle contractions during menstruation.

Get enough Zzzzs.

It may be harder for you to fall asleep and stay asleep prior to your cycle. You may have disturbed or restless sleep. Getting an adequate amount of sleep is critical to having control over your emotions and giving your body enough rest.

Make a date with yourself.

Suffering from mineral deficiencies such as calcium, magnesium and potassium may cause dizziness before your menstrual cycle. One way to get rid of dizziness is to make yourself a smoothie with fruits that are high in potassium and sodium.

Healthy, beautiful and confident. You deserve it.
