Work It

There’s no downside to exercise, period!

When you have your period there’s often nothing better than curling up on the couch with Netflix and all of the chocolate. It’s like a holiday from your diet, right! We’re big advocates of taking some time for yourself during this time of the month – it’s also great for your mental health. But, a little bit of exercise will actually boost your energy levels.

When you exercise, your body releases endorphins, which can act as a natural pain killer and generally make you feel brighter and happier. So, if the cramps are really cramping your style, try a walk around the block or a swim before reaching for the Panadol.

Just find something that you like doing and slot it into your weekly schedule. You should be aiming to do at least 30 minutes of exercise every day!
