Feeling your anxiety building up during the blue days? This could be because of the hormonal fluctuation that triggers fatigue and emotional distress.
While you may feel like there is no end to the pain and discomforts during periods, prioritizing rest is the key to make your days more bearable.
However, it should be noted that by ‘prioritizing rest,’ we don’t mean lounging on the sofa or lying on the bed all day long. Rather, it means engaging yourself in activities that bring you comfort.
That said, here are five helpful self-care strategies to promote rest, ease your milder feelings of depression, and stay stress-free during periods:
Engage in regular, non-strenuous physical activities to keep yourself active, such as stretching, walking, gardening, and practicing yoga.
Promote a better sleeping schedule during the days of the period so that you get enough sleep every night.
Indulge in meditation, such as yoga, breathing exercises, journaling, massage, aromatherapy, guided imagery, and progressive muscle relaxation, that helps alleviate a lot of stress.
Having emotional support around and sharing your feelings with someone you trust also helps ease your anxiety and promote internally peaceful feelings.
Lastly, consuming a balanced diet, limiting your sugar intake, and not giving in to your junk food cravings helps greatly in keeping your mood swings at bay.
