A Fail-Proof Guide to Celebrating Your Birthday, Even if You're PMSing

October 13, 2015

This past Sunday was my birthday! God, I love birthdays. I mean, birthdays are an all purpose excuse to do (almost) whatever you want. Don’t want to respond to emails? Ignore them! Don’t want to do the laundry you’ve been putting off for weeks? Another day won’t make a difference— it’s your birthday! Everything is in your favor...except mother nature. 

If your PMS falls on your Birthday, don't let it ruin your special day. Even though you're PMSing, today is still your day! Birthdays are meant to be celebrated whether the festivities be extravagant or a low key “netflix and chill” kind of night (I mean literally). You don’t need to get a drunken, cheeky tattoo to make your birthday memorable. Some of the best ways to have a successful birthday are through small events like:

Enjoying your morning

You may be tempted to hit the snooze button and get an extra hour of sleep, but you only get one birthday a year so wake up early and enjoy your day to its fullest. 

Going to the gym

I know, I know. Today is the one day you can be lazy, indulgent, and irresponsible without any sort of guilt. But after eating a healthy breakfast, working out will continue to lead your day in the right direction. It will also make you feel more productive and more importantly, you can eat that extra slice of cake knowing you earned it.

Spending time with people who matter

Some days you have no choice but to deal with people that are less than pleasant, but on your birthday surround yourself with people who are close with you. 

Having your cake and eat it too

Don't skip your birthday cake. That would just be sad. Instead find ways to level your blood sugar levels; sprinkle coconut on your cake, take a shot of apple cider vinegar or stir cinnamon into your coffee or tea (all effective for stabilizing blood sugar levels).
