As much as we hate periods, we know deep down our hearts how important role they play in our well-being. Compare them to the studies that we hate but have to do it because it is important. Studies along with boring lectures have exams, and periods along with annoying pain and fuss have mood swings which we dearly call PMS.
PMSing has been in the scene since always but the mood breakouts because of these is higher with us these days because we already have a lot of things going on in our lives. If you feel us, then you can try out these things to treat PMS effectively.
Disclaimer – No, these habits won’t make you feel good about your periods (nothing in the world can) but can help you deal with annoying AF mood swings for sure.
Binge on healthy fruits and raw vegetables
Come on, you got to do something to lessen its effects. Fruits are not that bad after all. Binge on apples, oranges, pomegranates, and a lot of other fruits as they can literally help you feel better. Coming to raw vegetables, yes, it is going to be a task but you get sweet benefits only after working really hard, so here it goes.
Try meditation and light exercises
As cliche as it can be, but it is true! We know that you are thinking that everyone says meditation is the healer of god damn everything but how can one do it with so much pain and stress. Well, all we can say is give it a try. You will not regret. Also, mild exercises like skipping, squatting, using a hulahoop, and the likes can be really helpful.
Avoid trigger foods in all cases
Sugar, table salt, and damaged fats are some of the trigger foods that you need to avoid while you are on your periods and while you are PMSing. Also, caffeinated products can prove to be bad during this time of the month. If you cannot ditch it entirely, just reduce its intake.
Say yes to dark, white, milk and all kinds of chocolates
Say bye to all the dieting plans of your life while you are PMSing. Your mood and body needs everything that you love and it is that time of the month to satiate your mind and soul with those things. Chocolate craving during the periods is a real thing and to add a cherry on it, having chocolates can be helpful while PMSing.
Instead of continuing with the things that are making you more irritated, focus on doing things that can destress you. It could be anything like dancing, singing, talking to someone, or anything bizarre or anything extremely low toned. It’s all up to you.

One of the most effective ways to keep up with the mood swings while being on periods is keeping yourself hydrated. So, drink enough water because water helps in cooling your body temperature and keeps you relaxed. We suggest you to drink more water than usual.
Binge on your favorite food and TV series
If nothing works out or if you are totally exhausted with the whole vibe of the PMS thing, you can just trust on binging. Order your favorite food and sit on your couch for the whole day and binge watch your favorite series or movies. Trust me, this will make your day and your mood so much better.
