Springtime Tips to Drink More Water

Posted by in Health, Nutrition

Spring is here!

With the temperatures rising make sure you’re getting your daily doses of water. Here are some tips to help you drink more water!

MORNING CUP: Drink a glass as soon as you wake up.

DRINK BEFORE EACH MEAL: Drink a glass 30 minutes before every meal. Not only will you stay hydrated but you’ll eat less too!

CUT CAFFEINE: Caffeine can affect the body’s water balance. By cutting caffeinated beverages you will help your body stay hydrated.

EAT FRUITS AND VEGETABLES: Remember that fruits and vegetables contain a lot of water! Consuming your daily dose will help and improve the body’s water balance.

FLAVOR IT: Add a lemon wedge or a slice of cucumber to enhance the water’s flavor.

BOTTLE IT: Carry around bottled water. By having water near and around you, you’d unconsciously drink more water. You’ll save time, money and the environment in using a re-useable water bottle. Finding a fun bottle can also encourage you to drink more water!

THIS WEEK’S TIP

Keep track of how many glasses of water you have per day. Try to increase your water intake each day!

Daylight Savings: Time to Spring Forward

Posted by in Fitness, Health

Spring is approaching and you can smell it. The sun is brighter and the winter winds are slowing dying down. We’re all making the extra effort to get bikini ready. This past weekend was Daylight Savings, and we gave up an hour of sleep in exchange for some more daylight. While some of us adjust to the change, others feel a disruption to their routine.

Here are some tips for your body to adjust to the change in time!

  • Sleeping Habits: Establish a regular bedtime routine and regular bedtime to get better quality sleep. Don’t constantly press the snooze button!
  • Exercise: Working out releases serotonin, which helps the body adjust. Try to exercise regularly and preferably outdoors and during the day so it doesn’t interfere with quality of your sleep!
  • Digest: With the time change you may get hungrier earlier. Be sure to allow yourself enough to digest before you go to bed.
  • Nap: Though a nap won’t help fully adjust your body it’s a great way to improve productivity. Keep to a short 20-30 minute nap for an ideal pick me up.
  • GO OUTSIDE: Expose yourself to sunlight as much as possible in order to help reset your internal body clock. Doing so can help advance your circadian rhythm.

THIS WEEK’S TIP:

Take a run outside! Enjoy the coming spring weather while being active!

International Women’s Day

Posted by in Products

Today is International Women’s Day, the day to celebrate women’s accomplishments, and what better way than to celebrate how Girl UNinterrupted came to be!

Mayling Kajiya began Girl UNinterrupted because her eldest sister constantly called to complain about her PMS and she wanted very much to help her sister. With a background in nutrition, fitness and movement, Mayling studied the ways amino acids worked and found an all-natural formula that worked! Using an essential amino acid – l-trytophan, Mayling was able to create a natural pain relief pill.

Girl UNinterrupted is more than just the pill itself. We are a company for women to SHARE their knowledge and learn from each other. We are here to connect women that are facing common challenges. We are here to motivate each other and to build a community.

With that said about our accomplishments we’d like to take this moment to challenge you!

This week’s assignment:

Take time to reflect your accomplishments this year and thank the strong women around you.

Love Uninterrupted Day 7 – That’s So EF’ing Annoying

Posted by in Love Uninterrupted

Love Uninterrupted Day 7 Pet Peeves

Sometimes there are things that are just plain annoying. Pet peeves can be deal breakers too. It could be anything from flatulence to body hair.

At this point, if you haven’t realized that communication is key then perhaps the issue is not your partner but you.

Talk is not cheap. It’s a price we pay for healthy relationships and peace of mind.

Recognizing what your pet peeves are is a great way to identify what triggers your ugly side. Personally I can’t stand the sound of a leaky faucet so a boyfriend who gets up at 3am and forgets to turn it off will have me writing “REDRUM” on the bathroom mirror before I go to bed.

Sometimes a pet peeve is insight into a bigger issue with your relationship. It might shed light into the fact that you either don’t want to be with that person or that you’ve changed and so has your needs.

If someone doesn’t know that their snoring is disrupting your sleep, then you can’t blame them for it. Be tactful and compassionate when addressing pet peeves with your significant other.

Knowing the difference between a pet peeve and a deal breaker can prevent awkward conversations and passive-aggressive behaviors.

Today’s Assignment: Take a few minutes to answer the following and reflect on your answers to these questions:

  • What ticks have your past boyfriends/girlfriends complained that you had?
  • How do you initiate confrontation? How do you handle being confronted with?
  • What are your most annoying pet peeves?
  • What are your deal breakers?

5 Myths About Your PMS and Your Period

Posted by in Health, Q&A

1) Lemon Juice or Running 10 miles for PMS

In my years working with women, I have heard of some crazy stuff like drinking lemon juice or excessive cardio like running 10 miles everyday will help. I am all for finding new and natural ways to get rid of PMS but it has to make sense. I think lemon juice as diuretic is ok but be careful about overusing it. I have sensitive teeth so I don’t like anything that’s going to erode my enamel. Running 10 miles everyday for PMS just sounds like bananas. I bet a man thought of that.

 2) Midol is just a cup of coffee and Tylenol 

This is true. If you read the label on a Midol its acetaminophen, Tylenol, with 60 mg of caffeine, a cup of coffee. So to have some money, just get yourself your favorite cup of Joe and a Tylenol if cramps are your worst symptoms during PMS134169420

3) Being upside down during period is bad for you

I think this must come from our grandmas and aunts who think that if you are upside down during your period, like in yoga, your blood flow might go backwards. I mean not really. How long are you upside down? all day? It’s totally ok to be active during PMS and during your period. Being active is always better than being inactive.

4) You have abnormal periods if you have a longer or shorter than a 28 day cycle.

Remember the 28 days is just an average length of the menstrual cycle and you have at variation in 8 days less or more before you are considered irregular. And in your 20’s and 30’s are the time where it can fluctuate the most so don’t freak out if it seems different month to month.

5) Stress and PMS have strong connection. So stay centered! 

Absolutely yes. Whenever someone tells me their PMS is so much worse this month then their last, I always ask about stress levels – whether that be in your personal life, school, work, new projects, etc, its going to affect your PMS symptoms. So stay active, meditate, and be aware of the people you surround yourself with. If they give you unnecessary stress, its time to consider if they need to be in your inner circle.
