Being brought up in a family that never talked about menstruation it came as a shock to me when my periods finally arrived and brought with them all manner of inconveniences, simply buying sanitary equipment was an embrassesment to me as a teen but the pains that often accompanied my bleed were awful. It is one of the reasons that I became a herbalist, caring for and nurturing our bodies with herbs could be something that we are taught about in schools.
Christmas is supposed to be the most wonderful time of the year but for most of us it's arguably the most stressful. For weeks before hand we desperately cram our work in so we can buy ourselves time off. We rush about the shops..
Last winter I had a touch of depression. I didn't realise at the time though because it came out in the form of social anxiety attacks. The thought of going out and socialising, or even going busy places with lots of strangers (e.g. London) was all a bit much for me. Life circumstances have changed and that has all passed now but not without a fair bit of fight.
A while ago I asked you to help me out with something, and help you did. You filled out a form to tell me what bothers you most about your periods. The results of which helped me put together the new version of my course Joyful Periods. Mood swings was the second most common problem you guys mentioned. So I thought I'd write a little something about the topic. For details about why you get mood swings head over to the article I wrote for Kali boxes at the end. But first, lets learn about a few herbs that can help.
Each year I write a reflection on the year to come. 2 years ago my self reflection for the year was full of depression and disappointment. Last year I was laughing in the face of disaster. This year I am optimistic, despite the pressure, to make this business work in a monetary sense within a relatively short space of time. I don't have the luxury of time anymore, for the sake of the impending bairn. It probably seems weird that I say it currently isn't supporting me personally but the realities of business running means that often any profit is skimmed off and pumped back into the company, never reaching my pockets.
Last year there was an issue of The Stylist which looked at luxuries. At that time I was wondering why my Peaceful Period course didn't have as many students as I would have liked and it got me thinking; is health and wellbeing the ultimate luxury?
I'm listening to a podcast about insanity and mental illness. The stories in it are making me smile. But as I smile, I look up and catch the eyes of a stranger, and they look at me as if to say, are you crazy?
Smiling without a perceptible cause to the observer is seen as a potential sign of madness in england.
