“Having your period is a pretty cool thing (seriously!). It reminds us of our femininity, child bearing abilities and shifts us back a notch to marvel at the wonders of the human body. For some having a period is a dream, however if you are reading this is it likely it’s a less rainbows and lolly pops and more like there is something trying to claw their way out of your uterus.

Yes, it can be that bad.

move it or lose it

Exercise is important all year round. It helps clear the mind, balance emotions and strengthens and tones our bodies. One reason people often give up an exercise routine is because the weather changes.
