Everyone’s body is different, so some people may be more sensitive to these things than others, but if you struggle through your period, it might just be best to avoid these things altogether. Here are 12 things you should never do on your period if you want to feel your best and avoid discomfort:
Emotional attacks are a common phenomenon during periods. Hence it is advised not to go near the kitchen when you are on periods. How can you be sure that you won't have an emotional attack when you are handling something dangerous like a knife? Always stay safe.
2 Watch Rom Coms
Watching romantic comedies during periods is one of the worst decisions one can ever make. It is a double-edged sword, on the one hand, you will feel sorry for having broken up with your ex if you are single, and if you in a relationship, then you will start missing your single life. Hence, it's best if you ignore those altogether. Remember, none of the rom-com movies happen in real life, they are just movies after all.
3 Any exercise
You might feel that you have gained more weight during periods. That's not true at all; you feel bloated during times which will subside gradually as the periods are over. Hence, there is no need to exercise during this period, since there is a high chance that your gym clothes will be ruined. So save yourself from the trouble of buying a new one.
4 Eat a lot of chocolate
I am sure that you have heard the myth that eating tons of chocolate during periods can help you manage your emotional swings. This is completely false. You can also indulge in a few delicacies, but don't cross the limit. Remember too much chocolate will make you fat.
Arguments during periods mean that a disaster is going to happen. You won't have any control over what you are saying, and you are probably going to regret this decision later. Just try not to start any arguments while you are on periods.
6 Get out of bed
Is getting out of bed even worth it? You will feel miserable. Just keep on sleeping. Don't move too much and just wait till the periods are over.
You know that taking a shower will make you feel miserable, so why bother taking one? Instead just take a bath and relax.
Dont try to do any housework as well during this time. Remember, you can always do housework later. Trying to force you to do this stuff will only make you miserable. Do it when you feel better. Just relax for now.
9 Eat junk food
To be honest, you probably aren't leaving your house, so chances of eating junk or fast food will be reduced anyway. Try to stay away from fried food, and stick to homemade food during periods.
Running during periods is a disaster waiting to happen. You won't experience any benefits at all; instead, you will feel more miserable. Instead just walk when you need to instead of running.
Lying down is better than sitting, so try to avoid sitting. Lie down on your sofa to watch TV, or lie down on a bed.
12 Get A Wax
"As if a bikini wax wasn’t torture enough try doing it while you have your period — double trouble!" says Jaime Knopman, MD over email. "Your pain receptors are extra heightened and your skin extra sensitive when you have your period. Add to that a pretty messy situation and waxing while on your period is not something you should do."
