It's funny how my daughter's and I have synchronized periods. The moment that I hear either of them say that they got their period, I know that mine is right around the corner. I won't lie and say I love having a period, it's not like it's something super fun or pleasant. But the older you get and the more years that you spend having a period, the more you learn to co-exist with it. I have even gotten used to the fact that if I have vacation plans or a special day, my period will fall on that same day. It's a fact of life, just like my period. 

Today I want to share Three Tips To Surviving Your Period.

Down-time: One of the best things about having a period is that I have an excuse to give myself some down-time. I am always on-the-go and find it very hard not to be there for everyone else. But on some of my harder period days I will actually turn my phone off to turn on Netflix and give myself some extra time on the computer, online shopping or just relaxing. These are the days that my girls know I am not available for runs to the store, last minute mall trips or anything that doesn't have to do with giving my body a break. Sure we are moms, but we have to take care of ourselves too. 

Pamper yourself: It can be doing a facial mask, giving yourself a manicure or simply sitting down to enjoy a cup of chai latte without having to let it go cold. Period days are perfect for pampering ourselves and taking some extra me-time. I love turning on Pandora while I do my nails and looking through the makeup catalogs, dreaming of what I want for the holidays. 

If you opt for a mani/pedi at home, CVS has all the items you need to get that perfect manicure at home without breaking the bank. 

Protection that gives you the confidence you deserve: At CVS you can find U by Kotex® Sleek® products ( here is a $2 off coupon) that can give you the confidence to do whatever you want to do during your period. You can swim, run, or just relax, knowing that you are comfortably protected. I personally love the Sleek®  design because the smooth, easy grip makes them comfortable to wear and the colorful tones don't remind me anything of the tampons we had in the 80's. Does anyone remember that torture?

I think a lot of times we look at our periods as moments of discomfort. But when you think about it you can really see that these are the moments that we can take to care for our bodies, our minds and even get some soul searching done. With U by Kotex® Sleek® you can be protected so you can get on with life and survive that period. See what other ladies are saying about their period at the Confidence U Deserve CVS Social Hub.
