So what does it really take to have a Happy Month? – To be honest it is as simple as starting a new habit!
To reduce your PMS symptoms it is vital for you to become aware of how you feel in the present moment.
As you know, we all have busy lives and we all get lost in our daily routines and habits, meaning hours can pass by which we have no recollection of when we try to think back about our day.
The best way to describe this state of mind is to compare it with a hypnotic state where we switch off our thoughts and memory and then let our unconscious minds take control.
But this state of mind can be very dangerous, especially during the PMS phase of the menstrual cycle, as it means that you can easily react negatively to a situation before you even realise it, all because the mind is following the “normal routine”.
So to reduce your PMS you need to break this unconscious routine and start a new habit!
Sounds relatively simple? Yes it is, but the unconscious mind is very stubborn and will try to take control back from you at any given moment…
So to combat this, I have found the below task to be incredibly successful but you do need to fully commit to the task and also become incredibly disciplined with it, so that it becomes your new daily habit.
The task – “Start a new routine”
So for this task, I first need you to go out and buy a new notebook or diary, which will become your personal PMS diary.
Once you have the notebook, I would like you to start a new page every day, first writing the date and secondly the following question:
How do I truly feel today?
For the answer to the question I would like you to look deep into your heart with honesty and write exactly how you feel underneath the question.
There is no right or wrong answer, it’s just about being totally honest with yourself and really noticing every emotion and feeling being experienced in the present moment.
Once you have your answer, please read it and think about what you need today to ensure you have a good day, for example:
Maybe you need to talk about how you are feeling to a loved one?
Maybe you need to reduce your workload for the day?
Maybe you need some time on your own to relax?
or maybe you just need a hug?
Whatever it is, I promise this task will help you to find out what you truly need today and will become one of the first steps in stopping your PMS for good!
