Every month, us ladies have to face one daunting week known as the evil menstruation. To say that it’s the most uncomfortable time for us is truly an understatement. The icky-ness, the bloating, the throbbing pain, the list of discomfort is endless!
But yet, life goes on…we still got to go to work, still have to meet our friends, we still have to run errands, still have to do things we love. So, how do we keep ourselves in tiptop condition, ready to take on the world during that time of the month? Personally, I try to stay fresh and refreshed.
Every woman probably have their own ways of trying to keep themselves refreshed and fresh all the time but I’d like to share some of my methods.
1. Drink a lot of water.
# – Throw in a lemon to give it a refreshing edge.
Contrary to belief, drinking a lot of water really helps with bloating and the lethargy. Sometimes I squeeze in half a lime for a truly refreshing drink.
2. Put on a relaxing mask.
# – Mask, music (and a dog) :)
I love this monthly ritual of mine and I save it for the time of the month because it’s when I need it the most. Whenever I put on the mask, I’d make sure I have good soothing music playing too. I’ll always feel fresh and lovely after.
3. Read failblog.org
# – Best website in the world, ever!
I know, I know a bit of a schadenfreude tendencies going on here but failblog ALWAYS got me laughing so hard that I’ll forget that I’m having the terrible flow. Laughing is truly a great way to freshen up the mind.
4. Use Whisper Ultra.
# – Best for staying fresh during the dreaded week of the month.
In my humble opinion, it’s an awesome sanitary pad. The thinness is amazing, it doesn’t even feel like it’s there and it’s fantastic in keeping dry. Always feel fresh and dry whenever I’m using it.
5. Play with Charlie.
# – Another typical day at home goofing around with my son.
Charlie’s capacity for love is just indescribable. Every time I’m in his presence, I feel like everything is just going to be okay :)
So do you have any way of keeping fresh and refreshed during that time of the month? Feel free to share, sisters :)
