Ah, one of my favourite things to talk about – PMS
Today on the podcast, I’m bringing y’all up to speed on the new research around how stress, food and movement affect your physical and mental state before your period.
Takeaways: Perceived stress from the cycle before can make PMS in the following cycle worse Aerobic activity helps more with physical PMS symptoms, Yoga/Pilates helps more with mental PMS symptoms A well balanced, unprocessed nutritional intake is best long term, but more research is definitely needed in this area Research Quoted:
