When PMS (Positive Management Scheme) is Cure to PMS

If monthly menstrual cycle can be compared to an unlikely visitor, then PMS or premenstrual syndrome is the thief in the night that snatches away positivity and enthusiasm from most women every month. In fact, a study has proven that 85% of the women’s population experience physical pain and emotional turbulence during menstrual cycle. And though scientifically this cannot be eliminated, lessening the pain as well as the mood swings is indeed possible. 

If you’re part of the 85% population that needs to cope up with the monthly menstrual hurdles, we have some handy tips that will be most useful for your situation. 

      • If you’re smoking, try your best to quit. In a recent survey, women who smoke have higher chances of experiencing moderate to severe PMS symptoms than those who have never smoked. The spiked up probability of having abdominal cramps and anxiety can be linked with the toxins ingested by the body through smoking. 

     • Get your body and heart pumped up. One of the easiest and most feasible solutions to alleviate the symptoms of PMS is through physical exercises and activities. For starters, you can engage in 15 to 30-minute walking and jogging. If your house is a few minutes from your work place, this is the perfect daily exercise.

     It’s also good to invest on a sturdy bike. With this you can embark on a new weekend habit of cruising around nearby neighborhoods. If you can spare some extra cash, better check some local gyms and inquire about their membership offers. 

     • Take it easy on the caffeine and alcohol. The excessive intake of coffee, tea, energy drinks, chocolate, and alcohol will give higher chances of boosting your PMS-ing. Based on the Oregon State University research, consuming more than one cup or bottle of a caffeinated drink days before and during menstruation cycle can raise the levels of adrenaline and stress hormones in the body, thus leading to food cravings, irritability, uneasiness, and momentary depression. 

Overall, the key to a healthier body condition is a positive and wholesome lifestyle. If you want to experience less pain, you should be ready to discipline yourself with what you do. Aim to begin with the food you eat. Remember to be always cautious of what you put inside your body. 

However, you don’t have to deprive yourself of the delicious stuff— at least know your limitations. Also give up the activities that can be detrimental to your health. For sure, within weeks you will not only feel the difference but will notice the improvement in your physical wellness.
