Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) is a hormonal disorder that affects women who are menstruating. This disorder happens one or two weeks before the actual menstrual cycle begins.
The symptoms include:
• Water retention
•Tenderness of breast
• Joint pain
•Changes in personality like anger, violence and even suicidal tendency.
The pain or discomfort varies for every woman. One might think that there is no way one can fight a foul mood and sudden mood swings, but yoga and meditation can help.
Yoga and meditation are relaxing techniques and can be included in your daily routine easily. Gentle yoga postures can be used to get rid of muscle cramps and back pain that are common during menstrual pain. Breathing exercises and meditation will help women calm down and get hold of their emotions.
