1. Exercise

Going to the gym or exercising might sound like the last thing you want to do but the truth is that you will be happy after a workout that you love.

Doing 30 minutes a day of at least a moderate exercise will help improve your mood and make you feel better because you will release endorphins which make you feel better. 

2. Hot Bath

Heat will make any PMS related cramps feel much better and you will have much less tension. You can take a nice long hot bath and also add Epsom salt to the water to help you relax your sore muscles even more. 

3. CBD 

We are sure you have heard about CBD helping with anxiety and other things but you might not know that there are also CBD products that can help with PMS. There are different options, from pills you can take to topical creams that you can apply. 

The key is to find CBD products from a reliable source that is legal and that the company is following the federal guidelines when it comes to production.  

4. Get Some Sleep

It might feel like it is harder to sleep when you are dealing with PMS but this is the one time that you really should put in the effort to get a good night’s rest. Your body is going through hormonal changes that mess with your energy levels and therefore it is super important to get a solid 7 to 8 hours of sleep

While you are sleeping your body will be able to naturally boost its mood and it will also repair itself in order to tackle the next day. 

5. Protein and Fat Are Your Friends

Although you might be craving sweets like donuts and chocolate, these will make your symptoms worse. All of the sugar will cause your energy levels to spike and then suddenly crash which will affect your mood and can even cause you to feel bloated.

Swapping the sweets for a lot of protein and good fats like avocado smoothies and veggie omelets will help decrease any inflammation you have and it will also reduce muscle cramps.
