7 Things to Avoid when You're on Your Period ...


There are obviously going to always be - let’s call them restrictions - on what you can do when you’re on your period. There are also our own personal inhibitions of not doing what just doesn’t feel right. But as well as restrictions and inhibitions, there are also things to avoid, simply to help you have a happier, healthier and even a less painful period.

1. Exercise Unfit for the Occasion

Among the things to avoid during your period are strenuous exercises that will make your cramps even worse. Instead of suffering stomach cramps at the gym, try yoga or swimming. Doing the crawl or breaststroke will stretch your abdominal muscles gently, helping to improve the blood flow to the pelvic area and limit cramps. Breathing exercises at a yoga class will help you to relax and yoga poses gently challenging your tummy muscles will have a similar effect as swimming.
