Eat healthy and drink lots of water
Eat lots of carrots, oranges, and apricots and other yellow and orange fruits and vegetables. Spinach and green leafy vegetables are great, and so are tomatoes, nuts, salmon and other fatty fish. Also, drink about a liter and a half of water a day.
Exercise and go for a walk
While lying on the couch may seem like a good idea, taking a walk or riding a bike is a much better option if you want to improve your mood during period. Enjoy the fresh air, but make sure you protect your skin from harmful sunrays by wearing a hat, sunglasses and by using a SPF skin protection product on the exposed areas of the skin.
Make your house smell nice
Certain scents have been shown to increase a sense of well-being. Perhaps a familiar aroma such as coffee or bread baking does that for you. Also, along with being lovely to look at, a bouquet of flowers can have a fragrance that is pleasant along with brightening a room.
Relax with music
Music can help decrease anxiety and improve moods. Find a comfortable place to rest, put on some relaxing music, perhaps even headphones. Then concentrate on the music and let your mind fully relax.
Take a bath
A warm bath with music and candles is the ultimate pampering experience. It doesn’t get better than that.
Enjoy a cup of herbal tea
A warm drink, like chamomile tea, can prove incredibly relaxing.
Go to bed early
Are you tired? Adults need between 7 to 9 hours of sleep. If you aren’t getting enough sleep, a short nap can help improve mood, alertness and performance, not only during a period. Also, consider going to bed earlier to get enough hours of needed sleep and the energy you need to go through your menstruation period.
