It's a burden to have those monthly pains that you get when you're on your cycle for red days. Here are some things you should take note of to help you get relief without turning to medical solutions. Try these natural ways; they're healthier and good for you!

  1. Try walking.

You can decrease severe cramps with light aerobics such as walking. This increases your Endorphine levels that help your body cope with depression and lessens physical pain. (via lifehack.org)

  1. Avoid drinking coffee.

Caffeine could actually retain more water in your body that makes you feel bloated, which results in worse cramps. Cut down a bit of your caffeine mix at least for a week while you are on your period. (via cosmopolitan.com)
