Minimize Period Discomfort While Working at Office
Working during periods can be difficult as it can make you feel tired, anxious, and irritated. A heavy menstrual flow does not only reduce the hemoglobin level but also causes painful abdominal cramps and fatigue.
But the good news is, you can manage it effectively and go about your tasks efficiently. Periods, after all, have not stopped women from traveling into space or climbing Mt. Everest. How can it stop industrious and hardworking women from doing what they love the most?
In this post, we discuss nine ways that will help you to manage periods at your workplace and carry out your tasks effectively and efficiently. Read on, to know how you can do it.
- Sanitary pads for working women
The extra-long, wide, and ultra-dry, sanitary pads are best suited for working women. At Wonderize, one of the leading manufacturers of sanitary pads in India, we offer the best sanitary pads for working women. You can order sanitary pads online from our store as well as from leading e-commerce platforms such as Amazon, Flipkart, Nykaa, Firstcry, Paytm Mall, and more.
- Use a good quality period panty
Period panties are like regular undergarments but are designed to absorb menstrual blood during heavy periods. These serve as excellent backup during heavy periods and work well with a good quality sanitary pad.
- Wear comfortable clothes
During periods, comfortable clothes are a much better option. From high waist pants to leggings to shirt dresses there are a lot to choose from. These not only provide the necessary comfort but also increase the fashion quotient of the formal attire. High waist pants hide the abdominal bloating and the slight pressure can reduce the cramps. Leggings and jeggings are far more comfortable options than trousers and are extremely breathable and movable. Palazzos are airy, breathable, and loose-fitting.
- Drink a lot of fluids
During periods, estrogen and progesterone levels drop, which causes bloating, gas, and constipation. Staying well-hydrated fights the bloating and flushes the waste out more quickly. Drinking a lot of fluids can fight menstrual cramps and backaches. It can regulate the cycle and balance hormone levels. The best fluids are water, warm teas (peppermint, ginger, and green tea), tender coconut water, fruit juices, and health drinks. However, say no to caffeine and avoid coffee and caffeinated drinks.
- Use menthol products
Menthol is an excellent and extremely effective herb to alleviate period pains and menstrual cramps. In recent times, the herb has found its way into a wide range of products including essential oils, ointments, sanitary products, medicines, peppermint tea, bath crystals, and roll-on and patches. Apart from their soothing properties, the products enlarge blood vessels and increase blood flow to the areas affected due to period cramps. Read our blog post on the usefulness of menthol in easing period pains.
- Soothing warm therapy
Heat therapy reduces period pain, relaxes uterus muscle, and helps a lot during menstrual flow. Heat pads on the lower abdomen and taking hot water baths are effective in reducing menstrual cramps. Apart from peppermint tea, hot beverages such as green tea and ginger tea can also relieve pain and ease menstrual cramps.
- Eat healthily
As periods cause blood loss, it is extremely important to eat a healthy diet to prevent fatigue and other complications such as anemia. Iron-rich food such as green vegetables, pulses, grains, fish, eggs, and meat is beneficial. During lunch breaks, make sure your plate is filled with food rich in protein, iron, vitamins, and minerals. Reduce the salt intake and stay away from junk food as well as edibles with high salt content. Carry fruits and healthy snacks to keep hunger pangs at bay and reduce the cravings for junk food.
- Stay relaxed and happy
During periods, it is common to feel tired, stressed, and irritated. It’s extremely crucial to stay relaxed and do whatever makes you happy. Perform the tasks that will give a feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment. If organizing is your stress buster, then organize the tasks at hand. If it’s writing, then feel free to write down anything that will help you professionally. Also, take short breaks. Sit in a comfortable posture and sip on a hot cup of peppermint tea. Or listen to good music and walk a few steps.
- Plan ahead
Periods do come without a warning. Remain prepared by carrying sanitary napkins and panty liners so that you have them when you need them the most. If possible, remember the date of the last period to get a rough idea of the next period.
