Happy New Year – 2020

The start of a new year is an opportunity to reflect, adjust and improve on any areas in your life, that you wish to enhance or change.

For me, this year is about revisiting the tools and techniques that I have gained over the years for PMS.

The reason for this is that lately, I have let my daily PMS practices slip, causing a really bad month of PMS for me!

Now, you would think that someone who writes a blog on “how to handle PMS” would know better, but we are all human, we all have times in our lives when we get so busy, we forget the things that really matter most.

The most important thing now is how I respond to the above realisation, do I let myself wallow or procrastinate? Or, do I hold myself accountable, reset, plan and make positive action?

Of course it’s that latter, otherwise I might as well delete this blog 🙂

So I just wanted to say, that it’s OK to have a bad month, it’s OK to not always be okay, it’s OK to slip up…. Just do your best!

So Happy New Year from me!

I look forward in helping many more of you deal with your symptoms and sharing my journey along the way…

PMS – Busy Mind?

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!

Struggling to Maintain a Fitness Routine with PMS?

If you are a lover of health, fitness and exercise like me, then you know how difficult it can be to maintain your level of activity during your PMS Phase.
