PMS Sadness: How to Up Your Spirit during PMS

Posted on

Every month, do you go from cheerful to a sobbing mess in a split second? Common PMS mood swings are the emotional roller coasters women endure every month. Mood swings even serve women as indicators to their menstrual period is upon them.

We have some tips if you are looking to not let mood swings affect your daily life the week prior to your menstrual period. The PMS remedies will help you calm the angry mood, soothe the sobbing mood, and keep you happy for longer. We want you to survive your premenstrual syndrome without going through five emotions in one day.

What Are the PMS Mood Swings?

Mood swings can happen in a sporadic moment at any point in the day. You could be at work when suddenly you start imagining something horrible and you just burst into tears.  You could be waiting for your coffee and get so angry it is taking longer than usual. You can never sense the mood swings until they occur. Once your menstrual period begins, you realize all those mood swings were due to your premenstrual syndrome.

The common mood swings you may experience are the following:

  • Crying
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Anger
  • Oversensitivity
  • Alternating emotions of rage and sadness
  • Irritability

For women who suffer from PMDD, or premenstrual dysphoric disorder, they have more severe mood swings which could lead to lasting irritability and deep depression.

How to Combat Your Mood Swings

If you want to put up a fight with your mood swings, we have PMS remedies you can use to not let them take over your daily life.
