If you're like most busy women, you wake up early and go to bed late. You balance work and family, make to-do lists, and juggle activities like school and housework. You really don't have time to worry about your period, do you?
Every day of the month is a busy day, so don't slow down just because of menstrual symptoms. Whether it's cramps, headache or backache, there's no reason to live with discomfort. Don't take your period lying down. Stand up with Midol. Try these simple lifestyle changes:
Did you know that regular daily exercise can help improve your overall health, lift your mood and alleviate fatigue? So take a walk or dance around the house or stop by your gym - and feel better.
You might be tempted to treat your cramps with a bag of cheese doodles, but don't go there. Your body needs complex carbohydrates to function at its best, so eat more fruits, vegetables and nutrient-rich whole grains (and try substituting whole–wheat bread for white bread). Learn what else you can do to relieve your menstrual symptoms
Reducing your salt and sugar intake may help alleviate some menstrual symptoms. Salt causes bloating, so cut back to minimize the risk of water retention. Too much sugar can intensify mood swings, so satisfy your sweet tooth with fruit, not a tub of mint chocolate chip.
Take two Midol Complete caplets with a glass of water to help relieve menstrual symptoms including cramping, bloating and fatigue. Unlike general pain relievers like Advil®* and Tylenol®**, Midol® Complete treats more of your menstrual symptoms. Because you deserve it!
