'Time of The Month', 'Shark Week' and 'Auntie Flow' are just some of the many ways we talk about periods, without even using the word 'period'. We really need our society to cut the BS and remove the stigma around this topic - because, hello it's not something new.
We've collaborated with Pink Parcel to bring some useful tips to help you get through your period, cutting all the BS and being raw. It's needed.
Getting enough sleep is oh-so-important for our mind and body to work properly and when our period arrives, it may hamper it.
Allow yourself some extra time before bed to get comfy and unwind. You know, that me-time with a nice cup of your favourite blend (ahem, OFFBLAK) and a book? Go on girl, you totally deserve it. That's where our Sleep Breezy flavour comes to the rescue. It couldn't be a better choice to help you get a good nights sleep.
There are a lot of great sleep therapy options available to shop on Pink Parcel's website - check them out now.
FOR CRAMPS SAKE
Cramps suck - from the pain to the inconvenience to our everyday life. It brings that 'cancel your plans and do nothing but hide under the sheets' vibe, urgh. No thank you.
Don't worry ladies, it's not the end of the world (though it may feel like it on the inside). We've got some amazing tasting teas for you to try to help keep those cramps at bay:
- Green Tea: It's said that green tea can really help soothe menstrual cramps, so why not give It's All Peachy or Squeeze Me a go? They both are refreshing and great tasting green teas.
- Chamomile Tea: Our Sleep Breezy chamomile tea has not only got ingredients to help you sleep but, also relieve cramps - you're welcome.
- Ginger Tea: Although we might not have a ginger-alone tea, we've got a tea-licious combo that you'd definitely want to try and that's our You're Golden flavour. Recent studies have said, regular consumption of ginger can help painful cramps and even reduce the heavy flows.
Not a fan of the flavours above? Check out our whole range and see what tickles your fancy.
YOU CAN EXERCISE AND HAVE YOUR PERIOD. PERIOD.
Who said you couldn't exercise whilst being on your period? NO ONE, that's right. Some of us avoid anything physical during the first couple of days, but actually studies have shown that it can help you have fewer cramps! Strange but, let's roll with it.
When it comes to your energy levels, we gotchu' babe. Our Fully Charged range is ideal for those looking to get a natural caffeine boost and hopefully to get you in that workout mode.
It can be said that stress and periods go hand-in-hand, wouldn't you agree? Like, even the smallest of things could irritate or cause useless stress? Travelling, missing the bus or forgetting something. Yeah, we've all been there.
Let's get you into that zen and chill mood, with our CAFF-FREE and Chill Out range. Our selection of too good to be true flavours will catch those bad vibes and chuck 'em right in the bin. Done and dusted.
INDULGE NOW, REGRET NEVER
Our PMS cravings go wild pre/during periods, from something sweet to savoury - it's totally normal to be reaching for those carb-heavy snacks. However, what if you could keep your PMS pangs at bay with ZERO sugars? It's possible. Our Just Dessert flavour offers that refreshing tea that makes you feel like you are eating that last square of dark chocolate with a hint of Moroccan mint. Sounds good right? We thought so too.
Keep in mind that drinking tea with mint can soothe muscle contractions A.K.A, those dang cramps. Enjoy now and regret never is what we say, so sayonara period pains, see you never (until next month).
Shopping is also another form of indulgence right? And adding the "period essentials" (makeup and skincare) to your cart feels so good. Take a look at the amazing range of new beauty discoveries on Pink Parcel!
