Women are much more prone to depression and decay than men after adolescence, when our body has already undergone all the physical and hormonal changes necessary for development.
Hormone levels in men are more or less stable throughout their lives; women, on the other hand, vary them every month due to the menstrual cycle.
The Premenstrual Syndrome is characterized by a series of physical and psychological symptoms that appear the days before the arrival of the period and can continue during it.
Emotional hypersensitivity and irritability are part of those characteristic symptoms. In the phases of the cycle in which there is a decrease in estrogen, we are more prone to them. Estrogens are related to serotonin, a neurotransmitter responsible for emotions.
Reduce menstrual psychic hypersensitivity
- Physical exercise, essential in most aspects of our daily life.
- Sleep 8 hours a day. The fact of not resting long enough and in the correct way will cause the opposite mental effect on us.
- Reading a book, listening to relaxing music or simply going for a walk will be beneficial for our mind.
- Practicing a meditation or relaxation technique such as yoga or breathing exercises will free us from tension and we will feel better with ourselves and with the rest of the world.
- Eating healthy including in our diet whole grains, fruits and vegetables and avoiding caffeine, salt and fat.
