PMS – Prioritise Mental Stability

Is PMS a Condition or a Symptom of unresolved issues within our self?

This is a question I have been thinking about for a long time.

I’m guessing that if you were to ask a number of people this question, then you would receive many conflicting answers, probably due to factors such as:

    1. The intensity of their PMS.
    2. If they are the ones suffering with PMS or if they are just living with a person who has PMS.
    3. Their own belief system of why symptoms develop.

To further analyse this question, have you ever noticed an improvement in your PMS when your mind has been still and happy? for example, when you have been planning and preparing for a long awaited holiday or even when you have been on holiday?

Or do you remember a time when you have experienced heightened PMS due to your mind being unusually busy or unhappy?

Does the above sound familiar to you?

The above is certainly familiar to me, which leads me to believe that PMS is actually more of an indicator of our own mental and physical well-being, rather than a condition in its own right!

So surely this means that the cure to PMS could actually be within our selves rather than in medication?

PMS has always had negative connotations but how empowering would it be, if instead we used it as a powerful reminder that we must Prioritise our own Mental Stability, because if we did, I believe that most people would experience a reduction in their PMS and a generally more enjoyable life! …. and who would not want that? 🙂

Do you know your sign?

Nope, not your Zodiac sign! 🙂

The sign that your body gives to you when you are about to enter your PMS phase?

If you do not know what your sign is then it probably means that you are not listening to your body, as I can guarantee, it will be trying to tell you!

Your sign may be:

  • A change in mood?
  • A physical symptom?
  • Or maybe a sensation of some kind?

Your sign is your body’s way of telling you that you need to start your PMS action plan now.

For example, when you experience your sign, you should know that it’s time to:

  • Start to reduce stimulants
  • Slow the pace down
  • Relax
  • Meditate
  • Tell the people you live with that you are about to enter your PMS phase

But if you ignore your sign, or just do not prioritise your action plan, then you can probably expect to have a bad month!

So this month, listen to your body, take positive action and enjoy a happy month!

Have you taken action yet?

I have met a number of people over the years who are very aware that they have PMS, maybe they have read some books, watched some YouTube videos… but most have never actually taken any action, even though they have spent many hours researching different tools and techniques.

Maybe these people are just not ready…? As to be honest, it does take a huge amount of commitment to achieve any real results and to ensure that they stay a habitual part of your life.

PMS can be cured! …. But it really depends on if you are ready for the journey?

The journey can be very long, filled with many lows at first, but it’s so fantastic when you actually start to see results for yourself, such as improvements in relationships, reduction in monthly tension and of course your first fully Happy Month, wow that’s a great feeling!

So are you ready to take action?

If you are, then you may be interested to know that I am in the process of writing a 31 day workbook, which will aid you in your journey to become PMS free…. and I hope that this will be available from Amazon very soon!

PMS Action

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?

Does PMS really exist?

This question is often asked in the media and a question that some people believe the answer to is “No it does not” …. but this is absolutely incorrect, PMS is a real condition with many symptoms that cause a lot of unhappiness to many women around the world.

The Happy Month website aims to promote a number of techniques, tools and lifestyle changes that can be used to help reduce and resolve real symptoms.

I am very passionate about this topic due to suffering with the condition and resolving it with absolutely no medication.

Happy Month is here to help, please get in contact with me if there is a specific topic/subject area that you would like help and advice on.

Positive Thinking - Happy Month

Are you feeling PMS’y?

If you feel unwell, unable to do any job or task because you feel so ill…..

Would you attempt to hide this from everyone around you?

Or

Would you let them know that you are not feeling well?

I’m guessing that you would tell someone, or at least that you would give yourself everything you needed to feel better . . . .

But it’s odd that most women try to do the opposite where PMS is concerned; trying to pretend or persuade everyone that everything is ok, when really it’s not.

This month open up and let people know that you are not feeling well due to PMS, if you manage to catch the feeling early, tell your loved ones straight away, let them know as soon as possible.

A powerful sentence that has dramatically reduced my PMS is simply:

I’m feeling a bit PMS’y

Sounds simple to say? Yes, but in the early days I found it very hard to admit that I had PMS to myself, let alone to the people I lived with.

But saying the above sentence out loud, I actually found to be very healing as I would feel instantly lighter emotionally, my symptoms would reduce dramatically and any atmosphere at home would be prevented or reduced.

Example

One month I was suffering with irritation due to PMS and I decided to do one of the worst possible things when experiencing the symptom, which was to try and find something in a draw that was a complete mess . . . .

I could feel the rage developing….someone offered to help….I wanted to snap, but then I uttered the words:

Do you know what? I’m feeling a bit PMS’y, would you mind doing this for me?

Rather than the normal explosion and argument, I felt instantly calmer, the person who offered to help felt better too, as they now had an understanding of what was wrong and they even told me to have a relax and then made me a cup of tea…..

O how it could have been so different, if I would of not said those words!!

So use this sentence, it really does work, say it whenever you feel it!

Pain Body aka PMS, as described by Eckhart Tolle

I have recently discovered the below video of author Eckhart Tolle discussing his interpretation of PMS known as the “Pain Body”:

Eckhart discusses the importance of being mindfully aware of all of your emotions, to help prevent any potential explosive situations from occurring and I feel he explains his thinking in a very humorous and respectful way.

If you decide to watch the video, please replace any reference to “Pain Body” with the term PMS for maximum benefit:


Please let me know what you think?
