I usually start getting cramps two days before my menstrual cycle starts. It gets so bad that I almost literally can’t walk.
That pain started today, after a weekend of rest, not exercising. It’s Monday, I HAVE to do my workout!!
I doubted for a while, thinking to myself “I can’t do this”. So I put my fingers to work and went on my old friend “Google”. So many stories and different opinions, I never know which advice to follow.
I do know Exercise is really good for you when it’s “that time of the month” but to get yourself to do it. Ugh!!
Exercise helps with the circulation in your body, with results – less pain, less cramps.
Excersing is wonderful for your brain, feeling positive, motivated, and energised.
Sleep, sleep, sleep, you can never rest enough when on your menstrual cycle, it reduces pain and get your energy levels up to where it’s supposed to be.
Having your menstrual cycle can be stressful, you can feel depressed, anxious and MOODY (thats me, misses emotional) Again, EXERCISE is the answer when feeling down,
“Exercise releases chemicals called endorphins. These endorphins interact with the receptors in your brain and it makes you feel GOOD!!!”
workouts recommended to do during your period planking exercises, aerobics, dance, zumba
Take it slow, do what you can and EXERCISE, it’s natural medicine to reduse pain…it’s FREE!!
