Dubbed the “evil twin” of PMS, Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD) is a largely understudied and misunderstood condition affecting approximately 5% of the menstruating population today.
Just like with other mental health disorders, the good news is that there is help and hope out there for the women who are impacted.
While there is no“one-size-fits-all” approach when it comes to managing PMDD, there are ways to help manage or alleviate some of the symptoms through lifestyle changes such as diet, exercise & supplements and via seeking help from professionals and those around you.
PMS in the midst of a global pandemic? Not ideal.
Being cooped up at home, with limited access to some of the things we love the most or that usually cheer us up, can make it feel like… a recipe for menstrual disaster!
However, by learning the factors that can make your symptoms better or worse, you can help better manage PMS.
Doctors get it. Moms get it. Influencers get it.
In today’s fast-paced world of expanding work hours, productivity shaming and an “always-on” culture, burnout isn’t selective with who it devours.
Appearing “busy” at all times is now seen as a good thing and those juggling a multitude of tasks at once are considered admirable.
In 2015, 60% of work absenteeism in Ireland was related to stress and a staggering 75%- 90% of GP visits today involve patients reporting high levels of anxiety.
With the rapid rise in employee wellbeing programmes and a culture obsessed with mindfulness, why are we still experiencing such a high percentage of burnout?
