I think this is a great quote, it simply highlights that we can have all the goals in the world, but without knowing the steps needed to accomplish them, it really is wishful thinking!
By reading this blog, i’m assuming that your goal is to reduce and eventually heal from PMS..
To be able to do this, I highly recommend implementing an action plan.
An example could be:
Drink plenty of water
Actively be aware of the stage that I am in, with regards to my monthly cycle
Move, seek fresh air, breath and relax
Research case studies and recovery strategies from Books and the Internet
Adapt food to be consumed, to benefit the current stage of my monthly cycle
Adapt exercise regime, to benefit the current stage of my monthly cycle
Add a mark on my calendar, highlighting next months PMS phase.
Celebrate success when a happy month has been had, due to a well thought out and delivered plan!
So get planning! and of course, if you need help, feel free to contact me:
Meditation is not for everyone….. but personally, I think that if something has the potential to reduce my PMS symptoms!….. then I am going to give it a try!
Meditation has been proven to help relax the body and mind…… and with practice, it allows you to see your own thoughts and feelings as they develop, including the first signs of PMS or even eureka moments, “Oo I actually have PMS now”!
By noticing that you are either entering, in or leaving the PMS phase of your cycle, you can provide yourself with the opportunity and time to decide what you need now or even, how should I be reacting now? so that you can have that totally Happy Month!
If you are interested in Meditation then there are a number of books and web pages on the topic…. but one of the best books I have read is called:
“Mindfulness – a practical guide to finding peace in a frantic world” By Mark Williams and Danny Penman
… and below is an actual free meditation from the book, I really recommend it!
So when you have some spare time, find a relaxing position, put the “do not disturb” sign on your door and have 8 minutes of pure peace!…. and who knows what you will notice! enjoy 🙂
To develop control of PMS you need to ensure the following three areas of your life are healthy, strong and positive:
#1 Mental wellbeing
If any one of the areas above are lacking or problematic this may highten your monthly PMS symptoms…. the most documented cures for PMS focus on Nutrition and Health, but if your Mental Wellbeing is low, then you may struggle to reduce your symptoms.
You can use methods such as mindfulness, meditation or counselling to help improve your mental wellbeing, making this important trinity complete.
