Try to Relax

“Find what relaxes you in any stressful situation and use it, says Frances Ginsburg, M.D., director of reproductive endocrinology and infertility at Stamford Hospital in Stamford, Conn. PMS is individualized, but that means you can be your own ‘science experiment’ to find coping techniques that work for you personally.” Try yoga, meditation, massage or acupuncture. Learn deep-breathing exercises or progressive muscle relaxation. You won’t know what works for you until you try it.
