Happy Period!

Okay, so is anybody else out there totally annoyed by the Always, Happy Period Commericals?

Visit the Always site and you will find these suggestions for treating yourself to a Happy Period...

This is the time of the month that's all about you. So be your own best friend. Make it your mantra to indulge yourself and celebrate beinggirl:

  • Make a hot cup of herbal tea.
  • Melt away stress by taking a warm bath or shower in candlelight and bath oil.
  • Take a walk or a yoga class.
  • Watch TV with a heating pad on your stomach.
  • Try "dry" heating pads — warm wraps that will let you leave the house and participate fully in your life. (See
  • Sleep in late on the weekends and serve yourself breakfast in bed.
  • Satisfy your cravings for a particular food. Carbohydrates increase serotonin levels in the brain, which are responsible for boosting mood.¹

I think that these are all LAME! Who wants to make themselves breakfast in bed?

So from me, have a CRAPPY period, let yourself wallow in self pity, lay around and moan all day, eat a bag of M&M's & swallow a bottle of Ibuprofen.

Here is something that might make you feel a little better...I hear you can get this mirror for a steal at Lowe's.

Those commercials....really someone was desperate for something to do. Happy is not what I think of when the period comes around.

I love that picture.... Too bad most of us see ourselves the opposite way.

Enjoy the M&Ms and ibuprofen!
