How I Prepare For The Worst Period Ever!!!| TOTM Campaign #Talking Periods



When I was asked  to be apart of this campaign to be honest I was so nervous because periods have always been a taboo topic and also I have always struggled and dreaded each month of my period since that shocking day when I turned the age of 12 at a class day-out (boyyy did i cry). To be honest I can write alot about this topic whether its what I would tell my 12 year old self to how to feel good about yourself on your time of the month, outfit options during this time and the list continues I could easily write at least 10 blog post on this topic.

From the topic your probably thinking I am going to get into the gross finer details or your probably wondering why I class my period as the worst period ever. Well I guess since 91% of my audience is female (sorry guys this one is for the ladies today) and for the most part I don't know one woman that has said I just love when my period comes or I look forward to my time of the month it just doesn't happen so most of us kind of view our periods as the worst period ever. However for myself I think its the worst because I do have a heavy period which use to be normal but changed due to childbirth (yes that happens) so I have learnt things aren't as bad as they may seem. But for the most part it isn't just that its the hormonal breakouts, the irritability, the cravings and just feeling plane old ugly.


So there are ways I have learnt to prepare for the worst period ever or my period in general that has helped me:

1. Meal Prepping before the week of my period or the symptoms I like to prep wholesome meals like soup or something warm like a stew and put in freezer bowls for the first 3 days of my period. The warmth helps with tummy cramps and besides who wants to be standing in the kitchen cooking in pain or ordering in a takeaway every day during that time(the bed and the couch is my new friend).

2. I get all my work pre-done or try to finish as much as possible because when your hormonal its hard to make sound decisions sometimes. Any important decisions I need to make I usually check with my husband or close friends because I can easily make decisions out of emotions.

3.Get Cosy- During this time I love wearing comfy pajama's, or jogging bottoms with a thick jumper sitting somewhere with loads of blankets and a candle lit with my favourite show on.

4. Speaking of show or movies- watch movies and shows that are going to make you laugh or cry or just feel good. One of the shows I love watching at this time is Raising Helen its Everything!!!. There's also a variety of shows and movies I like watching but this would be a pretty long post if I were to start listing. Leave a comment down below on what you like to watch during this time, when I was younger it used to be high-school romantic drama's, since I am adulting now that has definitely changed.

5. Making sure I've got certain essentials like sanitarys, tea's, bar of chocolate or bag of jelly babies(don't judge me ha), hot water bottle, pain killers for those bad days when you still need to go to work and look like you've just won the lottery Feminex has never failed me I keep well stocked up on that.

And if you forget to stock up TOTM run's a subscription service where you will never end up in awkward situations like a few of mine. You can get subscribed with them on TOTM's Website (Link Here). I am so grateful to actually be apart of this campaign so that myself and like minded bloggers can help others that are too uncomfortable to talk about this topic.

  1. I love the fact that you plan you life around your period and as someone who suffers greatly with pre-period hormones not to mention the actual period this is something I can totally relate to.

  8. I hate periods and have struggled with pain for 23 years! (I sound old!) I don't want my daughter to suffer and there needs to be more honesty and talking about periods and more research into the many problems that can occur
