When our PMS phase starts, our minds can become busy, irritated and frazzled.
If we do not find an outlet for the heightened self-talk, it can lead to arguments, withdrawal and a general low mood.
A simple technique that can help is known as Journaling (aka writing therapy), to free your mind and lighten the load.
You do not need to be a prolific writer, or even a writer at all, to benefit. All you need is a piece of paper, a pen, and the motivation to write.
I recommend writing every day, it only has to be a few minutes and you can make it easy for yourself, by having a pen and paper handy at all times.
So what do you write about?
Write down whatever feels right, scribble your thoughts, emotions, annoyances and pet-hates.
Fully offload on to the paper!
The last part of the process is to write down three things that you are grateful for… it can be the house you are sat in, the soft bed you are laying on or maybe the cup of tea that was made for you.
This final act, fills the hole where negativity was and pours in some much needed positivity and gratitude, a sure-fire way to stop PMS in its tracks.
Give it a go, I promise it will make a difference!
