Anyone catch that “New Girl” episode when Jess is PMSing and then Winston gets the “menzies”, too? That entire episode is pretty much how I feel about PMS--it's hilarious. PMS crying is the most hilarious, because you’re sitting there overly emotional, knowing that you’re being ridiculous, yet you can’t help yourself--like drunk girl crying, but more hilarious. Everything makes you want to cry—good things, bad things, sad things, mad things, rad things, and even stupid romantic stuff that would never normally make you cry.
Well, here are some ways to help make this time of a month little easier on you, and make sure to read through to the bottom to find out the secret to minimizing that overall yucky feeling you have to live with for a week.
a. Sex & The City (episodes and first movie),
b. Pride & Prejudice,
c. Spice World,
e. Big Bang Theory,
f. Boy Meets World.
a. Happy songs—include Gabe Dixon,
b. Dance songs—include Ellie Goulding,
c. Girl power songs---include Spice Girls, duh,
d. Inspirational songs—include Needtobreathe,
e. Angry songs—include Miranda Lambert “Mama’s Broken Heart” …it will make you feel better, I promise :)
f. Mariah Carey Christmas songs.
a. Massive amounts of water for practical matters and especially if you're bloated,
b. Wine—not cheap…aged and delicious,
c. Hot chocolate,

*The ultimate secret* -- Magnesium supplements. These help with bloating, and reduce that “yucky” feeling that makes you feel fat and gross all week. I read about in SELF Magazine or Fit Sugar, and have been taking one a day for almost 2 months now—I give it two-thumbs up.
