|Create Your Exercise Routine for a PMS-free Life|
|By Jing J.|
I used to have really bad PMS. Cramps, mood swings, fatigue, you name it. Occasionally I still have those symptoms, but they’ve become totally manageable.
What’s made a big difference for me is the regular exercise routine I’ve incorporated into my busy schedule. On weekdays I alternate between yoga, Qi Gong and walking. And on weekends I play tennis and go for a long hike.
Believe it or not, my experience is actually backed up by scientific research. Many studies have confirmed the effect of exercise, particularly aerobic exercise, on reducing PMS symptoms, especially mood-related symptoms such as anger and depression. In fact aerobic exercise is recommended by many studies as the first line treatment for PMS.
I hope this information will motivate you to start your own exercise routine. Here are a few tips that may help you get started…
Expect that some days you’ll have to rely on your discipline to stick to your exercise routine. But do it anyway, because you know it’ll always give you energy and make you feel better.
