Stay Active This Winter (Even on Your Period)
Staying active in winter is easy for girls on the go. Whether
you're bundling up and hitting the slopes or heading indoors for a game of basketball

There are a lot of advantages to sticking with your activities
no matter what time of the month. Exercise can help keep cramps away, give your skin a healthy
glow and boost your mood.
If you feel off your game and period cramps are getting you
down, try some of these winter activities and tips for staying active.
Take Outdoor Activities Inside
swimming, run track, try cheerleading
or play basketball, softball, kickball and soccer. So many sports have an indoor
version, so don’t miss out — rain or snow! Get a couple of friends and head to the
local rec center to see if you can start or join a game. Who knows, you might even
end up meeting some new friends, too.
Bundle up for Outdoor Sports
Just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy
being active. Go sledding, skating or skiing. It’s a great way to have fun and get
some exercise! Plus, you might learn something new.
6 Tips for Staying Active
If you’re enjoying indoor or outdoor sports this winter,
make sure you are taking care of your body! Here are six tips to follow for your
winter exercise routine:
1. Stay hydrated
2. Get plenty of sleep
Eat nutritious foods
4. Listen to your body. If something hurts, stop
5. Stretch before and after you exercise
6. Remember the importance of good period protection
When you’re staying active, it’s best to use period protection
that works for you — you need to feel comfortable so you can give it your all! Pads,
pantiliners and tampons can all provide you with the protection you need. Just pick
what you like best. One great option is
Tampax Pearl Active Plastic Tampons.
They offer high-performance protection so you’ll feel comfortable, secure and confident
enough to be your best. Try mixing and matching your protection, too. Wear a pantiliner
(like Always Incredibly Thin Liners) with your tampon or
on your light days. The more protected you are, the more you can focus on your game!
You’re all set! Now that you have some ideas and tips for
staying active this winter, get out there and have some fun. You'll feel stronger
and healthier and proud that you did!
