By  | 

Every woman knows that at that certain time of the month we can change. Sometimes it lasts for a few days or a week, sometimes just a day or few hours. We are all affected by it differently, and some of us share different symptoms. It’s never a pleasant time, let’s be honest. However, we can all make a few mistakes at this time of the month. With that in mind, here are some of the common ones you might relate to.           

Indulge in the sweet treats or comfort food

One of the first things you may notice is that your cravings for comfort food or sweet treats increases. Many of us want carbohydrates, the satisfaction of eating tasty food or junk meals and this can be a big symptom of that time of the month. However, it can also make you feel sluggish and even worse. So while it may be something you crave, it might be worth trying to make healthier choices for those comfort meals. Preparation is key to help avoid temptation. 

Not get the rest they need

You may also notice that you are more tired. Your body’s working overtime at this point of the month and you may notice that one of the symptoms you feel is that you are tired. However a big mistake is to not listen to your body and get the rest that you need. Take it easy, get an early night or simply rest when you feel tired. You will thank yourself for it. 

Not getting checked if there is cause for concern 

There are times when things are more serious and are not normal. There are symptoms that are common, but you also need to think about whether these are more serious than what would be expected to be normal. This is when you may want to get checked out to ensure that the symptoms are not something more sinister. You might need to undergo fibroid treatment or get some tests to ensure that all is well with your womb, ovaries and other things that you need to consider. 

Choose to wallow in their emotions

A very common thing to experience are the emotions that you feel during this time of the month. You may notice mood swings, feeling low, angry or sad. You might also notice things such as enhanced emotions and sensitivity. These are all normal things and as you get to understand your body, you will start to understand what is normal for you and what is being caused by the time of the month. Hormones are fascinating things and they can affect us more than we realize. 

Not to use a good protection 

Last of all, it is important to ensure that you have the right level of protection to ensure that you do what you can to protect yourself. It is never a pleasant feeling or thing to go through, but being protected helps you to feel better and confident in carrying on with your day to day life. 

Let’s hope these tips help you when it comes to the time of the month.
