Improve Your Diet

Eating a nutritious diet rich in lean proteins, healthy fats and complex carbohydrates can help manage symptoms. Also avoid foods and drinks that can aggravate PMDD such as sugar, processed food and alcohol.

Reduce Stress

Try relaxation techniques such as yoga, meditation, and deep breathing exercises, or talk to a therapist about coping strategies for dealing with stress.

Practice Mindfulness

Practising mindfulness can help increase awareness of your physical and mental symptoms and help reduce stress.

Get Plenty Of Sleep
