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


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
