The Best Way To Deal With PMS – Chocolate and Comfort!
Every month women everywhere experience symptoms of the dreaded Premenstrual Syndrome that can sometimes push us over the edge. The best way to deal with PMS is to allow yourself to feel all the emotions and just ride that wave.
However, there are a few things that may help make your PMS filled life feel a lot better – we’ve got some of them right here. Apart from watching a movie with a shirtless Chris Hemsworth, these products are probably the best way to deal with PMS.
1. Hot Water Bag
When those pesky cramps start up, the most natural way to alleviate some of the pain is to use a hot water bag. This one comes with a cute wool cover that insulates the heat. Ensuring that it stays warmer for longer and relieves your lower back or tummy of those cramps.

6. Calming Tea
Many women like to drink some Chamomile tea during their period as it is said to relieve muscle spasm and reduce menstrual cramp pain. Chamomile also helps to ease anxiety and irritability which can be caused due to hormonal shifts. So, get yourself a nice cup of Chamomile tea the next time you’re looking for an all natural way to deal with PMS.
