PMS is over

Menstruation arrived today just after lunch and the intense emotions have also gone (for the most part). 

Interestingly, my periods came 4 weeks and 1/2 a day since last month. So obviously by not buying into the irrational thoughts of PMS must have normalised my hormones in some way and not extended PMS/PMDD (like it would have in the dark horrible past) and so my periods have come in a regular manner. 

See, mind control works! If we can control ourselves, then we can achieve so much.
No wonder I was feeling so horrible and my emotions felt totally out of control yesterday. Lucky for me I was just feeling that way, but not letting it take over, so I was able to remain calmer than I normally would feel on such an irrational day.

This month. I am going to diligently do the following to get back to having wonderful periods and no PMS again:
  • Daily self-massage of my legs mainly, but also other parts of my body that I can manage myself
  • Daily exercise for at least 30 minutes
  • Eating more regularly every day (I eat really healthily, just had not been eating regularly lately)
  • Meditation every night before I go to sleep, which will help me sleep, but will also clear and refresh my mind and make me feel calmer all month
Come back to see how I fare next month.
