Today a lot of people choose to neglect some of the supposedly unimportant signals that the body sends to us. Many people leave aside their health and push it to the limit until the first small problem becomes gradually bigger. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness and the neglect can only lead us to unnecessary and postponed suffering.
For instance, thyroid disorders. There are many people out there who have thyroid issues but they are not even aware of them.
Scroll down and in order to find out which signals and symptoms can be related to a thyroid problem, courtesy of Stylecraze.
1. Constantly feeling cold
The weather is super warm and the other people around you feel just fine, but you experience shills and colds regardless. This may indicate that the thyroid is not functioning properly since the thyroid gland controls the hormones that regulate the body temperature.
2. Having menstrual irregularities
This is one of the most common signals for a thyroid issue since the hormones that are responsible for regulation your menstrual cycle, are dictated by the thyroid gland. You should see a doctor if your periods are constantly late or early.
3. Experiencing melancholy
Experiencing melancholy, feeling low and depression are linked with mental health, however, they might be an indicator of the improper functioning of the thyroid gland as well.
4. Poor memory
If you often get confused or forget things it may indicate to an proper functioning of the thyroid gland since it can create problems related to memory. In some cases, it can even lead to dementia.
5. Irregular bowel syndrome
The lower thyroid activity can result in constipation whereas a hyperactive gland can cause frequent motions or even diarrhea.
6. Continuous perspiration
Constant sweating even after a small physical activity can be a symptom of an overactive thyroid.
An overactive thyroid can also result in feeling you hyperactive and also can make you feel zealous. The abnormal function of the thyroid has been associated with ADHD in kids.
The overactive thyroid can make the nervous system to be overstimulated, which results in insomnia or night sweating.
9. Weight issues
Hypothyroidism or under-active thyroid can cause lower metabolism and people who suffer from it usually experience weight gain and have issues losing it later.
10. Thinning hair
Both hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism lead not only to thinning of the hair but also to hair loss.
11. Low sex drive
The improper function of the thyroid gland also affects the sex drive since the under-active thyroid indicates lower sex hormones releases. It affects both women and men.
12. Dry skin
As previously mentioned, if the thyroid is under-active it results in lower metabolic activity. The dryness of the skin can be so intensive that it can even prevent sweating, which can lead to eczema and wrinkling.
13. Dysphagia or difficulty in swallowing
The malfunction of the thyroid can result in the thyroid gland to become enlarged in the area of the neck since the organ increases in size it restricts the proper functioning of the esophagus.
You know, there’s a first time for everything. Especially for getting pregnant and giving birth to a baby, you know. One of the most important questions you’ll face is, of course, the size of the baby. And there’s so much advice coming from literally everyone, that things can get confusing sometimes. Well, not today, because we’re about to set the record straight!
“Do this. Do that. No, wait, don’t do either of those, do this instead.” Ughhh.
All the crazy advice is sure to drive a mother mad too! So what’s the truth? Thanks to MomJunction, we’re forwarding you the following truth bombs.
Just how much should a baby weigh?
According to medical experts, the average weight of a newborn should fall anywhere between 2,500 and 5,000 grams. Babies who are heavier than 5,000 grams are considered huge. It needs to be underlined, though, that a big baby doesn’t mean an unhealthy baby, nor would it lead to complications.
Is there a link between mommy’s weight and the baby’s size?
Your diet plays a role in the baby’s size, but it’s the quality that will make the baby grow and be healthy – not the quantity. A 2010 study published in The Lancet found that women who weighed 53 pounds or more had doubled their chances to carry a baby weighing over 8.8 pounds. Women who were in the range of 18 to 22 pounds didn’t experience this, while those who gained between 44-49 pounds were at least one and a half times more likely to have a gigantic baby.
So, which factors lead to heavier babies during pregnancy?
So far, science has identified five important factors that determine a baby’s size. These are as follows:
1. Levels of blood sugar
Usually, a higher BMI signifies a higher level of blood sugar. This stimulates the production of insulin, which functions as a growth hormone. And yes, you guessed right: women suffering from Type 1 diabetes are more likely to end up with a large baby. In any case, consult with your doctor in order to ensure that all goes well. The same is especially important if you’re diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes – you can still have a healthy baby if you follow a healthy diet and lifestyle.
2. The mother’s age
Age makes the medical conditions related to pregnancy more prominent, which is why mothers who give birth after the age of 35 often have larger babies. Inversely, teens are more likely to have smaller babies.
3. Pre-existing medical conditions
Conditions like diabetes, anemia, cardiac disease and others are known to impact a baby’s size.
4. Mother’s weight before the pregnancy
It’s pretty straightforward and one might say intuitive: mothers with a smaller BMI are more likely to have smaller babies, while mothers with a higher BMI tend to have bigger ones.
And last but not least, of course. Genetics. Depending on the genes from the mother, but the father as well, the child will vary in size. Genes from both father and mother have an impact on the size of the newborn.
In conclusion, when it comes to the issue of baby size, there are truly many factors. Your best bet is eating a healthy diet, keeping active, and consulting with your doctor.
So, good luck, moms!

Have you ever wanted to make your breasts larger? How about smaller? I bet the answer to both of those questions is – yes. That’s one of the things about humans, given enough time, we will want to improve everything. Our noses could be a tad more perfect, our lips a tad fuller, our abs a tad more chiseled, our muscles a tad more impressive.
See this picture? It’s practically a symbol of what it means to be human.
Anyways, today we’re laser focusing our attention on one particular widespread desire for human improvement – having bigger boobs. Before you come out judging, maybe count to ten and be aware that not all women wish that for the same reason. Regardless of each person’s subjective motivations, there are ladies who opt to go for the plastic surgery route. But today, thanks to StyleCraze, we’ll present you with some natural methods for breasts enlargement.
For a lot of women, it’s an issue of self-esteem. Why go under the knife when there are other ways?
One of the best and easiest ways to make your breasts larger is to massage them regularly. Experts say that a daily massage of 30 minutes will result in an increase of one cup size within a month. But what does massage do? Well, it increases the blood flow, which then releases more phytoestrogens – the hormones which regulate breast growth. First, warm up your hands by rubbing them together. Then, rub your breasts inwards – clockwise for the right breast, and counterclockwise for the left one. Half an hour is enough.
2. Healthy fats increase breast size
These can be found in fish, avocados, eggs, nuts and so on.
3. Consume foods rich in estrogen
Estrogen is one of the hormones that regulates breast development. A lower (than usual) level of estrogen will hamper growth. Luckily, some foods like legumes, fruits, flax seeds, chicken head soup and so on are rich in estrogen. Bon appétit!
4. Herbal treatments
There are plenty of herbal treatments that are said to increase breasts size. Some say that consuming fennel seeds help in breasts growth due to them being rich in flavonoids. Another method is consuming saw palmetto, which is said to lower testosterone levels and in turn boost boob size. Fenugreek is another herbal solution that is said to help, because it stimulates the production of prolactin – the milk-producing hormone.
5. Exercises that boost your bust
The wall press: Just like push-ups, but against a wall. It’s best to do it for 10 seconds, then take a short break. Repeat this for 20 times.
Swinging arms: Stand up straight with your arms loose by your side. Then, swing your arms clockwise for 10 times, after which you should take a short break (15 seconds). Repeat the motion but now in the counterclockwise direction. Fifteen minutes per day is great.
6. Household chores that boost bust size
Ever wonder how some women who work a lot at home seem to have huge breasts? Well… Those two might just be connected. Instead of staring at electronic devices all day long and swiping left and right on Tinder, cook a bit more for example. Grinding ingredients and flipping food in the frying pan are just some of those arm movements that impact breast size positively. It makes sense if you think of them as exercises.
Finally, have in mind that there are zero negative side-effects about these suggestions here. So, doesn’t hurt to try, right? Regardless, remember that perfection and beauty are in the eye of the beholder. Sometimes, we need to just let ourselves be.

Would you destroy something perfect in order to make it beautiful? I believe that’s what Gerard Way, the frontman of My Chemical Romance sang in their excellent “Sing.” And it’s pertinent to today’s topic. See, people have always wanted to be more beautiful than they already are, and sometimes they achieve the opposite – they become ugly. This is especially the case with cosmetic surgeries, which as we all know, can go terribly wrong.
If we can envy cavemen about something, that’s definitely their lack of ability to turn themselves into something out of a horror show. Thanks to Providr, we now have a list of 16 people who took plastic surgery a step too far.
1. Jocelyn Wildenstein
Rumor has it she’s spent in excess of $4 million on plastic surgery. Is it any surprise she caught her husband cheating on her with a Russian model? Nope, I think not. But when she got $2.5 billion from her alimony settlement, the judge made sure that she couldn’t use that money for further self… improvements?
2. Rajee Narinesingh
This woman just had the misfortune of going under the knife of an unlicensed doctor who didn’t know what he was doing. She didn’t have enough money for a real plastic surgeon, so this one guy injected her face with tire sealant and cement. Just wonderful. At least she can carelessly head-butt people now.
3. Maria Geronazzo
Maria is a Hungarian actress who decided that she needed plastic surgery. And LOTS of it. Why? Don’t ask me.
4. Brian Zembic
AKA ‘The Wiz’ is pretty much the archetype of a crazy person. Back in 1996 he was doing some high-stakes gambling and lost a bet to a person who asked that Brian should get breast implants. And Brian did. And he kept them! Good for you Brian!
5. Priscilla Caputo
She works for Star magazine and she’ll tell you she’s an ‘aspiring model’, but somehow I’m not inclined to believe her. Priscilla has also been a guest on Howard Stern’s radio show, and she’s one of the few people who admitted that they took it a bit too far. She’s admitted it “ruined her natural beauty.” Her bofriend is a plastic surgeon (uh-oh) and she once said she’s created a monster.
6. This Jane Doe
No one knows this woman’s name, but check out those breast implants. If that’s even what those are. It could very well be the heads of two bald men snuggling in her shirt. Dunno man. The guy next to her doesn’t look comfortable as well.
7. Farrah Abraham
We know her from Teen Moms. However, she made something stupid – she decided she needed some very necessary lip implants. This is her now. Feel pretty yet?!
8. Christina Ray
First, that’s not her real name, she’s Russian. Second, she believes that Jessica Rabbit is the perfect model of a woman and that all girls should aspire to look more like that particular CARTOON CHARACTER. So, she put her money where her mouth is (scratch that, WAS), and literally. So purty, no?
Do lip injections ever go right, actually? And maybe this is what she was going for? Like, to eternally have a duck face so she can take selfies effortlessly?
10. Some Italian celebrity
She’s… A piece of work. But not the artistic kind.
The vice-president of Versace, ladies and gentlemen. I’m guessing this lady was used as a testing grounds for new plastic surgeons to learn their skills on.
12. This… Woman?
You think the previous boob job was something? Check out these. Her breasts’ size is triple Z. Meanwhile, I can only wonder how long until her spine snaps.
13. Who needs a nose you can breathe through?
This woman sure didn’t! And she PAID for her plastic surgery to do that. Wow.
14. There second guy on this
…Wanted a nose job after his divorce. So as to appear ‘more attractive.’ Well… It took him 22 surgeries PLUS an infection, after which the doctors decided to remove his nose. See that plastic straw in the middle of his face? He breathes through that now.
15. Yet MORE botched lip injections!
WHY GOD WHY?!
16. Breast implants look like this when you age
The truth of plastic surgery makes itself shown, eventually: no breast, all implant. Yikes!
Probably one of the greatest feelings in the world is being pregnant. While it can bring along a little bit of pain and the occasional toilet troubles, it’s just such an amazing feeling knowing that you’re going to be a mother to a beautiful baby girl or baby boy. And all of that trouble pregnancy might bring is understandable, since all the hormones are headed in different directions. That feeling of one person growing inside you for nine months must be indescribable.
This article originally appeared on Stylecraze.
However, there are some really weird and odd things that women do when they discover that they are pregnant, scroll down to find out what they are.
1. Peeing on a pregnancy stick and showing it to every one.
It is the object that says it all, so of course, the women who find out they are pregnant for the first time, you can be certain will show the stick to all the relatives and friends. Also, some women aren’t just showing it to their important people but rather they would take a picture of it and show it to the whole Internet through the social media channels.
2. Keeping this pee-stick safely away
Chances are, many women have this stick kept forever in their memory box as a reminder of that very special time of their lives.
3. You keep track of what vegetable the baby’s size corresponds to.
This is by far the weirdest thing on the list. So, today your baby looks like a bean and the next day it looks like a melon? Eh, well, the-mothers-to-be can do anything they want.
4. You are not yet sure if you should or shouldn’t tell it to the world.
I mean, real happiness can’t be really hidden, right? But, there is that dilemma at some point when you are not really sure if the whole world needs to know about your pregnancy or not. Well, your friends know you too well, so, how would you excuse your not drinking or smoking?
5. You begin acting like a child yourself.
You start blaming all on the pregnancy. If you forget things, it’s probably the baby. And not only that, but you tend to remember everything about your baby, but nothing much about anything else.
6. Using your pregnancy to your advantage.
Of course, all pregnant women should be treated nicely and kindly, and people around them should take care of them all the time. They have the perfect excuse for almost everything for nine long months so they might as well use it.
7. You begin thinking what your baby will look like.
There are many things that you can see on the first ultrasound photo, you just need to take a good look. Surely, it must resemble you.
8. You like to read every pregnancy book
Especially, if you are pregnant for the first time you want to read all the pregnancy books ever publishes. That is completely understandable since you might have a lot of questions.
9. You want your significant one also to read every book on parenthood
Well, you have to involve your partner in this parenting starter voyage since they also have to know all the ‘rules’ and advice on the subject.
10. Your mailbox gets an overload of pregnancy emails.
You have already subscribed to every possible website about pregnancy, so your inbox gets tons and tons of emails now since you have to know everything about pregnancy and babies. We, don’t blame you. In fact, we encourage you to download some useful apps as well.
11. You are experiencing and emotional roller-coaster almost every day.
It probably feels like experiencing a lot of PMS at the same time, a lot more. One moment you are joyful and the next you become sensitive to every little thing you see or hear, but it is only up to hormones so it is understandable. It is not you, it is the hormones.
12. You start writing down names.
If you haven’t already decided, at this point, you have a journal in which you keep on writing down the potential names. You spend a lot of time examining what name would suit your baby the best.
13. You spend a lot of time in the shops
Let’s get ready before the baby comes. Well, more like let’s buy almost the whole baby section in the clothing store! There are so many adorable clothes, it’s so hard to decide!
14. You keep on posting pregnancy and baby stuff.
During the nine months, your social media is overloaded with baby and pregnancy stuff. From healthy diets, yoga poses for pregnant women to all the baby stuff it is never enough when it comes to knowing everything about the pregnancy.
A teenager has shared shocking photos after allegedly being punched and smashed in the face with a bottle by a man she pushed away for trying to grope her.
19-year-old Sophie Johansson was in Babel nightclub in Malmo, Sweden, when she claims she was groped by a mystery man who put his hands on her bottom and between her legs.
Pushing the man away to stop him from sexually harassing her, he responded violently by punching her in the face then smashing a glass bottle over her head.

Sophie spoke to Swedish website Aftonbladet about the night:
I felt it but it did not hurt. But I heard the sound confirming that it was a bottle.
I thought it was dripping from the bottle, but then my friend said it was running blood.
I ended up in shock. I became very ugly, unusually calm, and went for a guard.
Sophie was immediately rushed to hospital and given stitches for several cuts on her head and was required to stay overnight.
A police report for aggravated assault and causing actual bodily harm was filed but only days later Malmo police shelved the investigation due to a lack of evidence that would help identify the man.
Sophie did not hear the assailant talk but estimates he is about 25-years-old, 5’10” tall with a muscular figure, dark hair and a dark long-sleeved shirt.
She admitted she has mixed feelings about the incident saying:
I am happy and grateful that it did not end worse. But I’m a little upset about not finding the man.
Next time, I have to go to a guard instead, I can not do anything myself, I feel.
I would also like to urge others to be careful when they go out.
Nils Norling, presidential officer at Malmö Police, said they are still keen to find the man:
We hope someone saw something that saw the event. Then we will open up the preliminary investigation again.
We want nothing but to continue with this. It may not be that you can expose someone to gross abuse and go free.
I really hope someone can come up with more information. So that we can get closer to a suspected offender.
Babel nightclub has published a statement about the incident explaining they have handed over all available material to the police.
On Facebook they wrote:
During Sunday morning, one of our guests was beaten by an unknown man. We now need witnesses to the event in order to move forward on this matter.
We have a no tolerance policy against violence, threats and all forms of abuse. We and our staff work closely with the police to suppress and prosecute all crimes.
Through Arrangörsföreningen Swedish live, we are also actively working together with police, RSFU and prefectures to continuously educate and inform our staff.

We have, of course, left everything we have from the evening in cooperation with the police.
Now we and the police need all the help we can get from you, our guests.
Did you see anything, did you take pictures during the evening or do you know anything?
Contact the police directly!
We wish everyone to keep a good time and focus on helping the police in this case.
Hopefully they will be able to catch the assailant to help prevent attacks like this from happening in the future.
Although the idea of eating gluten-free has become trendy, going without gluten has been a lifesaving answer for people living with celiac disease for years now. One of those people is actress Jennifer Esposito.
Jennifer, who starred in shows like Law & Order, Blue Bloods, and Samantha Who?, struggled with undiagnosed celiac for years. Unsure what was going on inside her body, Jennifer begged doctors for help — but she says they weren’t listening.
Jennifer’s health problems came to a head while she was filming episodes of Samantha Who? As she reveals in the video below, Jennifer was in the middle of filming one scene when one of her teeth suddenly fell out of her mouth. She knew then that she really needed to get help.
Frightened, Jennifer went back to the doctor. In the video below, she says she begged the doctor, “Please, I need help.” That’s when she was checked into the psych ward.
Jennifer says she thought she was going to be checked into the hospital, but found herself instead being treated for mental illness. At that time, she says, her hair, eyelashes, and fingernails were all falling out.
In 2011, Jennifer finally got a diagnosis that changed everything. She was suffering from celiac disease, which was causing her immune system to attack her small intestine, according to the video below.
Despite the scary symptoms, knowing what was wrong meant Jennifer also finally knew how to help herself. She changed her diet completely and cut out the gluten that was hurting her. Now, she says food is something that heals her, whereas once it was something that was literally killing her.
Check out the video below to learn more about Jennifer’s battle with celiac disease and how food has changed her life, and please SHARE this story on Facebook.
What woman doesn’t love having beautiful, long, and strong nails? Trying out all those wonderful nail art tutorials you find on the internet is super fun, or for those of you who don’t enjoy a DIY paint job, there is the blissful feeling of having someone do the hard work for you at a beauty salon. However, many girls are faced with a really annoying problem: the inability to grow their nails. Well, they do grow, obviously, but they break and chip almost immediately, forcing you to trim them and start all over again!
You have probably tried various treatments, but most likely nothing has worked which is why you’re reading this article right now. But before we get to how to strengthen your nails, let’s first see why they need strengthening in the first place, courtesy of StyleCraze.
Why are your nails brittle?
1. You bite your nails
Biting your nails is a very big no-no. Not only because it makes them look, well, not nice, but also because it can lead to bacterial infections that can slow down the growth of your skin and nails. One thing that may help you stop this habit is keeping them polished: then you will probably make an effort not to ruin them.
2. You skip the base coat
Don’t skip the base coat! It protects the top layer of the nail from the nail polish.
3. You chip off your nail polish
This is another bad habit. Don’t chip off your nail polish because you’re also probably removing the topmost layer of your nail as well, which makes for weak and brittle nails.
4. You use gel and acrylics too often
Going to the salon to get gel or acrylic nails is all well and good if you’re not doing it too often. Your nails need some time off to grow in strength and if you don’t give it to them, their natural growth process will be negatively affected.
Which vitamins help your nails?
Just like it’s very important for your general health, your diet has a big impact on the health of your nails as well. These vitamins help them grow stronger.
1. Vitamin H (Biotin)
Biotin is very beneficial for your nails, hair, and skin. The recommended daily dose of this vitamin is 30-40 micrograms and you can consume it either through supplements or food. Some foodstuffs that contain biotin are bananas, avocado, and salmon.
2. Folic acid (Vitamin B9)
Folic acid is necessary for cell growth, which makes it helpful in the growth of your nails too. You can consume your daily dose of 400-500 mcg folic acid by eating leafy greens, eggs, beets, and citrus fruits.
3. Vitamin A
Vitamin A has a dual function: it strengthens your tissues, bones, teeth, and nails; and it’s an antioxidant, which means it helps in the elimination of damaging toxins from the body. Some products rich in this vitamin are grapefruit, spinach, yams, apples, eggs, liver, and milk.
4. Vitamin C
Vitamin C is excellent for fighting off bacteria and it’s a strong antioxidant as well. The human body doesn’t produce this vitamin which is why it’s very important to consume it through supplements or foods such as blueberries, citrus fruits (oranges, limes, and lemons), tomatoes, leafy greens, and strawberries.
How to make your nails grow faster and stronger?
Now then, here we are at last. Here are some things you can do to improve the health of your nails.
1. Lemon juice
Lemons are rich in vitamin C which, as we mentioned earlier, is very good for your nails. However, lemons have another purpose as well: they act as a bleaching agent and they can remove the yellow stains from your nails. Be careful not to use lemon if you have cuts or hangnails, though – it will sting.
Pour 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and 3 tablespoons of olive oil in a bowl and mix. Place in the microwave for about 20 seconds. Soak your nails in the solution for about 10 minutes. Repeat daily.
Rub a slice of lemon on your nails for about 5 minutes. Wash off with warm water. Repeat daily.
2. Coconut oil
Coconut oil improves your nails’ growth thanks to the nutrients it contains. These serve to moisturize and nourish both the nails and the skin around them. The oil is also used in treating fungal infections.
Pour some extra virgin coconut oil into a bowl and warm it up a little. Massage it into your nails and fingers using circular motions. This treatment will improve your blood circulation and promote nail growth. Repeat every night before going to bed.
3. Orange juice
Oranges and the vitamin C they contain boost the production of collagen, a protein that helps keep the nails strong and healthy.
Squeeze one orange and pour the juice into a bowl. Soak your nails for 10 minutes. Wash your hands and moisturize them. Repeat daily.
4. Olive oil
Olive oil can help keep your nails moisturized and nourished. Besides, it contains vitamin E which improves your blood circulation and nail growth.
Warm up the olive oil. Massage it into your nails and cuticles for about 5 minutes. Put on a pair of gloves and leave them overnight. Or, if you prefer, soak your nails in warm olive oil for 15-20 minutes. Repeat daily.
Which foods are good for your nails?
Your diet is crucial for your health. Topical treatments are definitely helpful, but eating healthy is another very important factor that leads to healthy and shiny nails.
Eggs are rich in proteins which are essential for growth and have a big role in strengthening your body, nails, and hair. They also contain vitamin D, B12, and biotin.
Beans are also rich in biotin. One study discovered that with a biotin-rich diet the nail thickness was increased by 25%!
Oats are an excellent source of copper and zinc, two minerals vital for your bones and nails. Instead of cereal, have a bowl of oatmeal with fresh fruit for breakfast.
4. Sunflower seeds
Sunflower seeds contain a lot of essential nutrients, including copper and manganese. These minerals ensure the health of your connective tissues, bones, and cartilage. Just sprinkle some seeds onto your bread or on a salad and you’re good to go!
Seafood lovers will be happy to know that salmon is a great source of nutrients that strengthen your bones and nails. This fish is also rich in vitamin D which boosts your bone growth.
That’s it! That’s the basic guide to strong and healthy nails. Stick to these recommendations and you won’t be disappointed in the results! And now that you have strong, long nails, here are a few manicure tips.
It is very important that you read this article to the very bottom. Every woman gets too emotional during her period, and men do not miss their chance to complain.

If you are in your kitchen and cooking while you are on your period, you run the risk of hurting somebody. Now, you will probably wonder how. The answer is simple, if you are cooking you are most likely to have a knife near you. Now tell us, what if you have one of those emotional attacks while having a knife in your hand?

Use Your Phones

Watch Romantic Comedies
Romantic comedies are not the best choice while you are on your period, especially if you are single. If you are in a relationship you should also avoid watching this kind of movie, because you may even miss being single. Therefore while you are on your period do not watch romantic comedies. The most important thing for you is to remember that people in movies and TV shows are just acting.Their screen life might be perfect, but it’s just a show, the reality can be totally opposite.
Eat Tons Of Chocolate
You should not believe all the clichés you hear. Just because you are on your period, it does not mean that you have to stuff yourself with chocolate. Eating chocolate is not going to make you feel any better. Therefore you can eat a few candy bars, but remember not to go crazy, because at the end you will only be angry at yourself.
This is one of the most important things you must not do while you are on your period. As you already know this time of the month can be extremely emotional for you and the last thing you want to do is start a fight. You will probably end up saying bad things just to hurt the other person, which you will later regret it. At this time, you must avoid fighting with someone that you deeply care about, because it can affect your relationship. In moments like this you just need to calm down and count to 10. Leave the argument for some other days.
Get Out Of Bed
If you are feeling terrible, then it is probably the best if you stay in your bed. When you are all cranky no one wants to deal with you. That is why it is the best if you stay in your bed and sleep a little bit more. If you can stay in your bed for 2 or 3 days, do so. After this emotional crisis is over you can leave your bed.
Take A Shower
While you are on your period there is no point in taking a shower. If you want to stay clean and feel better, taking a bath is always the better alternative. Maybe you can spice up things with some wine and music and just relax. This relaxing bath will make your body and mind feel amazing.
The heap of clothes on your bathroom floor and the pile of junk on the kitchen cabinet are not going anywhere. Therefore you do not need to bother and clean it right away, just leave it, and go back to bed. Read a book or watch a movie. You will clean that mess, when your period is over.
Eat Fast Food
These days of the month you need to stay at home and avoid the fast food restaurants. This places are filled with fried food that will probably make you feel worse. What you need to do is stay at home and skip the burger and the fries. Instead you can grab a mug of hot chocolate or eat a candy bar.
Running while you are on your period is probably one of the worst ideas. This is no time for burning calories. Therefore do not run across the parking lot or down the stairs, and never ever run around your block, while you are on your period. Instead of running, get back in your bed and watch a movie.
Sit At All
Laing is the key, because it feels so much better. Try to avoid sitting down and instead lie all day if you can. You can lie on the couch while watching television, lie in the tub when you must get clean and always lie down in your bed. Sitting and walking will not make you feel good when you are on your period. Therefore why suffer?
Your body is already in pain, so why put your brain through pain as well?
Your kid can feed the pets and do its homework without you for couple of days, but you will not have a headache. Do not get us wrong, while in your period you can do everything you normally do the rest of the month. We are just saying that the better option is to stay in your bed and sleep all day.
