Treat Yourself: Queen For A Week
Getting your period can be a real bummer —as if you didn't already know! The bloating, the cramps,
the ATTITUDE...the list goes on! Every month you're bound to feel your worst. What
better reason to treat yourself like the Queen you are!
Instead of feeling sorry for yourself, celebrate
and treat yourself with these Queen for a Week
Take a bubble bath.
There's nothing more soothing and relaxing than
lying down in a steaming hot bubble bath. First, make sure you can hog the bathroom
for at least 45 minutes —there's nothing relaxing
about your little brother banging on the door every 5 minutes. Set the mood by lighting
a couple of scented candles around the bathtub. Bring a radio in and play some mellow
tunes (don't place it on the edge of the bathtub for obvious electrocuting reasons!).
Fill the bath with tons of bubbles, two cups of Epsom salt, and a couple of drops
of Lavender oil. You can purchase Epsom salt at most drugstores. Epsom salt is a
natural way to soothe muscles and tension and draw toxins from your body. Lavender
oil can be found at natural health stores. Lavender promotes calmness and balances
the mind and body. Once your bath is all set, sit back and chill out!
Plan a movie night for yourself!
What types of movies do you like best: comedy,
drama, thriller, or action movies? Rent two movies and veg out on the couch. When
you have your period, you tend to crave certain foods. Satisfy your cravings by
making your favorite snacks. Buy yourself a box of chocolate or a bag of gourmet
jellybeans. Crave salt? Mix onion dip mix with sour cream and grab your favorite
potato chips. (The down side...the calories still count!)
Dress up or dress way down.
Wear comfy pants ALL DAY. There is nothing better
than your favorite pair of sweatpants. They are soft and comfortable and you look
awesome in them no matter what time of the month it is.
Or you could go the other route. Dress up! Sometimes
when you feel really down and icky, dressing up can be a real mood lifter and a
great way to treat yourself. Take extra time in the morning to do your hair and
pick out an outfit that is dressy but comfortable. You'll feel extra pretty all
day. You'll get so many compliments that you'll forget you even have your period!
Try out Always Ultra Thin Regular or Always Regular
Pantiliners —they'll be discreet no matter what
you choose to wear!
Go to your favorite restaurant.
Plan a night to go to your favorite restaurant
with your favorite person, whether that's your boyfriend, your best friend, or your
mother! Splurge on an appetizer and a non-alcoholic strawberry daiquiri. Order the
entree you've always wanted to try but thought was too expensive.
No matter how you choose to treat yourself like
a Queen, make sure it's something that makes you feel relaxed and really special.
It can be something as simple as reading a good book, painting your nails, or taking
an extra long shower. Getting your period is tough enough — treat yourself to something special!
