Things You Should Never, Ever Do During Your Period
Men always tell women that they are too emotional during this time of the month, there are things you know and never do while you’re on your period. Getting out of bed is a struggle, with cramps and other hormonal issues.
If men believe that women are too emotional during this time, then there are millions of things you shouldn’t do on your period. Here are just a few.
If we venture into the kitchen, we run the risk of hurting someone. What if one of our emotional attacks occurs while we have a knife in hand? We’re already used to the blood. What’s a little more? One of the things you should never do while on your period is enter the kitchen, not even for a snack.
2. USE OUR PHONES
Just by picking up our phones, we might just end up calling our ex. During this emotional time of the month we might call them and try to get back with them as being alone can be hard but this time of month all of our emotions make it even worst, and if we don’t try to get back with them we might just curse them out for no reason. But how could it be our fault when were on our period our emotions are all out of whack.
3. EXERCISE IN ANY WAY
You only feel bloated because you’re on your period. Once the week is over, you’ll be your sexy self again. There’s no need to exercise now, especially since you don’t want to risk ruining your new workout clothes. You should just save yourself the trouble of putting them through the wash until the stains come out.
4. WATCH ROMANTIC COMEDIES
If you are single, romantic comedies probably make you miss being with someone. Or worst if you’re in a relationship they might even make you miss being single. Either way you lose. Don’t forget that people in movies and TV shows are just acting, their life might seem perfect but it’s just a show not reality.
5. EAT TONS OF CHOCOLATE
Don’t believe all of the clichés you hear. You don’t have to stuff yourself with chocolate, because you’re on your period. It’s not going to make you feel any better. Eat a few candy bars, but don’t go crazy. You’ll only be angry at yourself in the end.
6. START ARGUMENTS
If you start a fight you’ll probably say things that really don’t mean to say that will just hurt the other person and you’ll probably regret it after. Maybe it’s not the best idea to start fighting with someone that you deeply care about as it can affect your relationship long term. It’s best just to let the other person be and wait until a better time to discuss the issue.
7. GET OUT OF BED
Why even bother to get out of bed? You feel horrible, and no one wants to deal with your emotional outbursts. Just stay in bed and sleep. Blog a little. Don’t move from your spot for four or five days. Then you can re-emerge like the beautiful butterfly you are.
8. TAKE A SHOWER
You probably feel horrible already so why jump in the shower, a better alternative you can do to stay clean and feel better is by taking a bath maybe even sip on some wine and just relax. This will make your mind and your body feel amazing.
9. DO HOUSEWORK
That pile of junk on the kitchen cabinet and the heap of clothes on your bathroom floor aren’t going anywhere, so don’t make yourself miserable trying to take care of things when you’re having your period. Just leave the mess and crawl back into bed with a book or a movie. Attack that mess when you feel more like yourself.
10. EAT FAST FOOD
You probably don’t really feel like leaving the house, which will make it easier to avoid any drive thru places that just contain loads of fried food, which will end up making you feel worst. . Eat a candy bar or grab a mug of hot chocolate and skip the burger and fries.
Can you imagine? Running while you’re menstruating is probably one of the worst ideas ever. It won’t feel good, and you’re bound to be bloated anyway so burning extra calories won’t be all that beneficial. Don’t run down the stairs, don’t run across the parking lot and never run around the block on your period. Instead, shuffle slowly into the kitchen for another candy bar.
12. SIT AT ALL
Lying down feels so much better, so try to avoid sitting down at all. Lie on the couch when you watch television, lie in the tub when you must get clean and always lie down in your bed, for the whole day if you can. Sitting and walking just doesn’t feel good when you’re on your period, so why suffer?
There’s probably no reason why you should make your brain and your body hurt all at once during this time.
Sure, your fifth grader might have to do his math homework without you and you might have to rely on your toddler to feed the pets, but you’ll only feel worse if you make your brain hurt. Don’t worry, everyone will get used to it.
In reality, you can do anything on your period that you’d do during the rest of the month. However, sometimes it seems like our best option is to just stay in and sleep. Whatever you’re comfortable with, go for it!
