How To Deal With Your Period At Work



Stuck with your period at work? Being at work on your period can be a very uncomfortable situation – especially if you work in an environment where you’re on your feet all day. Here’s a few things you can do to help make the day go a bit smoother:

Drink Plenty Of Water
You probably know how drinking plenty of water keeps you hydrated throughout the day. You may have also experienced how sluggish and cruddy you feel when you don’t drink enough. Drinking plenty of water helps to keep the muscles, skin, etc. working efficiently but it may also help to reduce menstrual cramps as well as bloating.

Wear Comfortable Shoes
Our shoes can help or hurt our backs. If you’re already dealing with a tender spine, wearing high heels may make your back hurt worse. Keep this in mind especially if you’re on your feet all day. Opt for comfortable, supportive shoes or use inserts to help support your spine.

Support Your Lower Back
Our lower backs support us all day, whether we’re seated or standing. During your period you may find your lower back is extra achy. To help it out, you can use a fatigue mat when standing or a back support pillow while sitting.

Remember To Stretch
Whether you’re standing or sitting all day, don’t forget to move and stretch. A few yoga poses such as these ones may feel extra nice when dealing with your period.

Wear Comfortable Clothing
If your skin feels extra sensitive during your period, you may want to consider wearing loose and comfortable clothing, especially around your stomach. Bloating may make tight clothing feel extra tight and uncomfortable, or the material of your clothing may irritate your skin.

Skip The Unhealthy Midday Snacks
It’s so easy to give in to those cravings during the day, especially at work. Instead, opt for healthier snack options. Consider reading our previous post to help you pick some healthy but tasty alternatives.
