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!

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!

A Simple Tool for Instant PMS / PMT Results

PMS ToolBox

Over the years I have tried a number of different techniques that have been recommended to reduce the symptoms of PMS / PMT, but most seemed to involve either a large learning curve, expense or they were just not feasible to build into a daily routine.

Due to this, I decided to develop my own tools and techniques that would be simple to use and that could be incorporated into my routine.

So in this post I would like to introduce you to “The Daily Well-being Survey” a quick and simple tool allowing you to detect the very first signs of PMS developing, so that you can actively slow down, relax and potentially prevent any explosive situations from occurring.

This technique is very simple, so I have tried to keep the explanation concise too, in the hope that you do try this tool (for at least a month), starting from the very first day your period starts.

How to do “The Well-being Survey”

Step One:

Buy a notepad small enough to carry in your bag or store in your car etc

Step Two:

Divide one of the pages into three columns and then name each column as follows:

How am I Feeling?        Communicate?        Need?

Step Three:

Once a day, at a time when you can be alone, or, even better, just before a busy time of day e.g. before your kids come home from school or before you go home from work, answer the three questions listed in Step Two.

Your answers do not need to be detailed, but they do need to be truthful, so do spend a little bit of time reflecting on how you are feeling before you answer the questions.

The first question “How am I feeling?” is fairly self explanatory, the answer you provide here does not need to be long, but it does have to be honest e.g. : I’m feeling happy, a little bit stressed.

The second question “Communicate?” is really important, as it’s an opportunity for you to review your answer to: “How am I feeling?”.

If your answer seemed to indicate a lower than normal mood and you are getting close to your PMS phase of the month, this could be your first warning sign of PMS developing, suggesting a need for you to communicate with your loved ones, so your answer here should be Yes.

Communication is key in reducing PMS, as strangely by opening up and talking to your loved ones it really does take the pressure off, as you no longer have to pretend that everything is “fine”!

The last question is my favourite, “Need?” What’s going to make you feel better today? e.g. a night in front of the TV? no chores for a night or maybe nothing, if everything is Ok!


So there it is, simple huh? if you do give this technique a try, then please do let me know, as I would love to hear your feedback!
