Using a heat patch to get rid of period cramps

Often, cramps affect many females before and during their period cycle. Though, some people only experience mild cramps, but others go through a rough time.

So, if you are someone who is not so lucky and gets hit by extreme cramps, try these home remedies to get away with the pain!


Use a heat patch

Honestly, this is the most basic home remedy to get away with period cramps. Scientifically, using a heat patch around your abdomen can help relax the muscles of your uterus, as these muscles are the reason behind period cramps. At the same time, heat can also boost circulation in your abdomen which can eventually reduce pain.

Massaging tummy with essential oils

Some oils are really helpful in reducing period cramps as they have the ability to boost circulation. So, all you need to do is massage you abdomen or tummy with some essential oils like lavender, clove, cinnamon, rose, etc. Remember, before applying the oil on your tummy, mix it well with a carrier oil like coconut oil which will help the essential oil get into your skin and do its work.

Do yoga

A study suggests that practising yoga can be helpful at reducing period cramps. In fact, there are some major yoga poses which can help in reducing period cramps, and the names of them are:

  • Child's pose or Balasana
  • Bound angle pose or Baddha Konasana
  • Head to knee forward bend or Janu Sirsasana
  • Resting corpse pose or Shavasana
Avoid having caffeine and salty foods
During periods, its highly advised to avoid caffeine, salty foods, alcohol, and fatty foods. By cutting these off from your diet during periods, drastic relief from period cramps can be attained.

Doris Lessing who won a Nobel Prize in Literature

London (CNN)- At five o'clock in the morning, the esteemed 86-year-old astrophysicist Jim Peebles was woken suddenly by the telephone ringing.

"In previous experience, the only phone calls at that time of night are bad news," he said. This one was great news. "The opening sentence from the caller was: 'The Nobel committee has voted to award you the Nobel Prize in Physics. Do you accept?'" Peebles recalled. The wording threw him. Who wouldn't accept a Nobel Prize? "You know the Bob Dylan fiasco?" he said during a phone interview with CNN. "That might have put the wind up them."The "fiasco" Peebles mentions refers to the 2016 Nobel Prize in Literature, which was controversially given to an utterly unimpressed Dylan.Aside from being ever-presents on college campuses in the 1960s, little connects Peebles, an expert in theoretical cosmology, with Dylan. But one of the starkest contrasts might lie in their reactions to winning a Nobel -- and the songwriter is far from the only laureate whose crowning turned out to be an awkward affair.

The five committees are notoriously secretive, fiercely shielding their choices from the outside world -- including the laureates themselves, who are told of their victories just minutes before they are announced to the public.

Sindoor implies the longevity of a woman's marriage to her husband in the Hindu tradition

Married Hindu women are recognised by a red streak of vermillion in the middle of their foreheads. This is traditionally called 'sindoor', which is derived from the Sanskrit word sindura, meaning 'red lead.'. Sindoor is traditionally powdered turmeric and lime, sometimes red saffron, or red sandalwood. It is also called vermilion, or Kumkum.
