Embracing a Fresh Start: Period Positivity in the New Year

Happy New Year, everyone! As we step into the blank canvas of 2024, it's not just about resolutions and hitting the gym; it's about redefining how we approach every aspect of our lives. And yes, that includes our periods. So, today is an opportunity to set some unique and refreshing goals for your period.

Mindful Menstruation: Have you ever thought about approaching your period with a mindful mindset? I get it; the phrase “mindful mindset” is tossed around gratuitously, but in reality, 2024 is a great time to ditch the negativity and embrace the natural flow of things, not only during that time of the month but also 

in everyday life. But, when it comes to your period, instead of viewing your period as a monthly inconvenience, consider it a reminder of your body's incredible abilities. Try incorporating mindfulness techniques, like easy movement activities, such as yoga,  deep breathing, or meditation, to stay centered and connected during your menstrual days.

Eco-Friendly Periods: 2024 is also a great time to make a commitment to Mother Earth as well. Consider switching to eco-friendly products, including period products like reusable underwear and FLOH Wear. Not only are these options kinder to the environment, but they also promote a healthier and more sustainable period experience. It's a small change that can make a tremendous impact.

Period-Positive Language: Have you considered the words used to describe periods? Our language matters. This is the time to challenge the stigma around periods by choosing words that empower rather than shame. Instead of  whispering about "that time of the month," how about embracing phrases like "I'm starting my power week" or "I'm coasting on the crimson wave"? Changing the narrative helps create a positive atmosphere and encourages open conversations about the very normal function known as menstruation.

Period Self-Care Rituals: Self-care isn't just for spa days but every day, especially during your period. Consider creating a period self-care ritual that brings you comfort and joy. Find what works for you, whether indulging in your favorite chocolate, taking a warm bath, or simply curling up with a good book. Your period deserves a little extra TLC, and so do you.

No matter what you choose for your period goals, we wish you nothing byt a new year filled with positivity, self-love, and yes, period empowerment. Let's flip the script and make 2024 the year we redefine our relationship with our menstrual cycles. After all, it's not just a period; it's a fresh start each month.
