6 Ways To Take Care Of Yourself During Your Period
I bet I know what your favorite time each month is…
And I bet it’s every week EXCEPT the week of your cycle.
Let’s be honest here: “that time of the month” just isn’t fun.
I remember the tampon and pad commercials from my teen years — images of red-lipped women in white pants on a cruise ship, sipping their mixed drink, laughing and talking, like they didn’t have a care in the world. Or the teenage girls in bikinis who jumped into the swimming pool with their friends, like a tampon made that possible.
Seriously, who wants to wear white pants or a bikini on the first day of their period?
Brushing our hair and wearing non-elastic pants are big accomplishments; red lipstick and white garments of any sort are out of the question.
I think most of us would like to forget about the whole business altogether.
Except we can’t … because it (hopefully) arrives like clockwork, about every 28 days.
My period now is a cakewalk compared to the periods I had in my teens and 20s. And, I’m learning to lean in, rest, and listen to my body during my time of the month. I’m a woman, and my body is miraculous! Our periods are a monthly reminder of that. 🙂 Even more importantly, I’m trying to teach my daughter to do the same… when her time comes.
