Caffeine, the enemy of PMS

I love coffee!

My favourite has to be from Nero’s, normally a White Americano!

Coffee gives me that well needed energy boost in the morning, it relaxes me after lunch and it is my favourite daily treat.

But somehow, this lovely daily treat, turns into the evil side kick of PMS once a month…. and the stimulation qualities seem to focus themselves on heightening my annoyance, anger and irritation rather than anything positive such as relaxation or energy.

But I need coffee?

So to combat this, I realised that I had to reduce my caffeine intake during my PMS phase, which sounds easy, but when you are ever so slightly addicted to the substance, it is very easy to say yes when someone offers you a cup!

So I am now very strict with myself, limiting myself to two cups if I feel that I am ok, but if I sense even the slightest hint of PMS, then its straight on to the Camomile Tea!

Could you benefit from the same approach?

  1. I’m having such a bad case of pms and I cannot for the life of me give up coffee! Maybe I should try harder. Would be best for everybody if im not feeding my irritability and nasty moodswings. Thanks for the tip!
