Tips To Help your Daughter Stay Active While On Her Period {Giveaway}

hiking

Sometimes while you are on your period you may not feel like your usual self, however sticking to normal everyday activities and staying active instead of retreating to your bed can help make you feel better.

If your daughter is on her period and thinking about skipping sports the following tips can help her stay active while on her period without having to miss any sport activities.

Don’t skip practice because of cramps

Cramps can be uncomfortable but exercising releases endorphins that can actually help counteract the cramp-producing chemicals that are part of the menstrual cycle. Exercise will help her feel better if she is suffering from cramps so encourage her to go to practice.

Help her stick to a healthy diet

Sometimes having your period means skipping the healthy diet and caving to unhealthy cravings. Forget the ice-cream and help her stick to eating healthy balanced meals. Sugars and carbohydrates can make her feel bloated, instead encourage her to eat food that contains magnesium, probiotics and anti-inflammatory ingredients. Some examples are: spinach, swiss chard, pumpkin seeds, squash, quinoa, cashews, yogurt, pickles, miso soup, dark chocolate, ginger, tomatoes, olive oil, salmon, almonds.

Find the right protection

Help her find the the right products to provide protection while playing sports. Playtex offers a selection of products designed with sport level protection. Developed for women who lead busy and active lives, Playtex® tampons offer multiple levels of absorbencies to give women confidence and freedom in everything they do.

The Playtex Sport #PlayOnCA $50,000 Grant



According to a study commissioned by Playtex Sport, girls admit they can’t afford athletic participation fees, uniforms or transportation. They also say that boys have more choice when it comes to high school sports, gain more support from administration, receive more funding and play in better facilities than the girls do. Playtex Sport wants to help even out the playing field by encouraging girls to Play On through a national grant program. From now until October 31, 2016, the program will sponsor up to $50,000 to help fund girl athletic teams across Canada. Teams can apply online at www.playtexplayon.ca.

Playtex-PlayON-LockupPlaytex® Sport® may select submission(s) and award grants (totalling up to $50,000 CAN; up to $5,000 CAN per team) to one or more Canadian high schools. The application deadline is October 31, 2016 at 11:59:59 a.m. ET.  No application fee or purchase required. Limit one application per nominator. Award of grant monies not guaranteed. Subject to Terms and Conditions at www.playtexplayon.ca.

    She changes her mind depending on the season i.e. whatever she is playing most at the time – tennis and swimming in summer, basketball in winter, volleyball in spring. And she tried diving this summer and loved it so that is a new favourite too!

    I played Rugby growing up and I LOVED it.. I wish I had stuck with it when I moved to the big city when I started at college but I knew NOBODY and nothing about the city so I was too scared to continue.

    I have contemplated joining again once my kids get a bit older though or maybe introduce it to my daughter.
