A lot of women make it an excuse not to exercise when they have their period.
Some might not know but staying active during this time is actually beneficial than doing nothing. Dealing with monthly dreaded cramps, bloating, mood swings and even PMS could be manageable with regular thirty minute exercise to fight these symptoms. Sitting around and not moving make you feel more lazy and lethargic. Aside from that, one of the biggest struggles is finding the perfect partner to fight menstrual blues.
Making the best choice is made easy by Jeunesse Anion, introducing a sanitary napkin and liner that inspires and empowers women to get into the habit of practical healthy living. To launch their Total Wellness advocacy, they have partnered with Marriott Hotel Manila to freshen up habits for moms through food and fitness workshop that will inspire them to stay active and eat healthy during that time of the month.
“To keep you motivated in fighting the lazy feeling, turn up some music and dance your heart out.” It’s the advice of the country’s “Dance Diva”, Regine Tolentino. It so happened to be that dancing her way to tip-top shape is the secret in maintaining her figure. As licensed Zumba and U-Jam Fitness Instructor, she explains that Zumba has loads of physical and mental benefits. Aside from strengthening the cardiovascular system that prevents heart attack, attending Zumba classes helps moms become socially active, increasing emotional power. It also has mood boosting benefits as exercise release endorphins or also known as “happy hormones”.
Aside from exercise, there are certain food that help fight PMS or other discomforts during your period. Chef Len Santos-Ding an instructor at Heny Sison Culinary School and owner of Feed 5000 Kitchen Studio, shared recipes and tips that pulls you back to the habit of healthy eating, with her easy and guilt free one-pan meals. She emphasized, “If your body is not starved for nutrition, it doesn’t crave junk food”, which happens when you have your period. Other tips, limit salt and sugar which causes bloating. Opting for healthier food choices by adding fiber to your diet through fresh vegetables and fruits aids in the balance of hormones.
