No caffeine

Caffeine is an ingredient that can actually make your cramps worse. Drinking coffee or energy drinks high in caffeine can even make your period last longer than usual. Instead of drinking your usual cup of joe, try drinking a smoothie or protein in the morning instead. You can also try drinking decaf for a few days. Trust me, your uterus will thank you. It's better to survive without caffeine for a few days than suffer from worse cramps.

Skip Carbs

If carbs are your primary food source, you should cut down on carbs. Meals made with rice, wheat and all-purpose flour are your worst enemy if you are bloated. Carbs hold more water in your body and causes bloating.

To get rid of bloating, you should eat vegetables and fruits that don’t cause bloating. Eat your meals mindfully and watch your portions. Overeating can also cause belly bloat because food that your body doesn’t need and enters your body causes bloating.

Create free website with no coding skills

If you are like me and don’t have much coding skills, then you can use either of these two sites:

1. WordPress

2. Wix

You can create your website for free on both of these sites. All you need to do is pick a template that suits your brand. You can even customize a template by choosing from various design templates and then publish your website. 

Wix even has the option to integrate SEO and other marketing solutions that helps drive traffic on your site.


Daily meditation is one of the best ways to have a healthy brain and body. It not only relaxes you but also exercises your brain. By creating a different mental state, you engage in interesting and new ways to increase your brain fitness.


Say Thank you and Please

The simple acts of gratitude can help you show the loved ones, you admire and appreciate them. We often forget to show compassion to our loved ones. Say 'please' when asking for something and 'thank you' when they do something for you.

Saying thank you and please improves communication and makes a huge difference. Next time you want to express love for someone, say thank you when they bring you something to eat. When asking for something start the sentence with please.


Adding the florets to the rapidly boiling salted water for a few minutes instantly changes the color and texture. The whitening and flushing method works wonders when you need to get that raw chew out. It also makes the color vibrant green and ensures that the cooking process stops. This works great for broccoli salad, meal planning, or making a side dish ahead of time.
