Get Relief From Period Cramps With a Pillow and These 5 Relaxing Stretches From Blogilates

If you dread that point of the month because your period causes painful cramps, Blogilates creator Cassey Ho shared five stretches you’ll do to urge relief — all you would like may be a soft, comfy pillow. Hold these stretches for 30 seconds or longer:

Lying butterfly
Half pike
Lying spinal twist
Half camel
Child’s pose

“Go slow and hear your body,” Ho said. “I’ve noticed that being active generally has helped lessen my cramps. once I don’t move my body, it gets worse.” Here are the simplest workouts you’ll do during your period.

Aside from light workouts and these relaxing stretches, here are another ways to urge relief from menstrual pain.
