All tagged yoga for endometriosis

I know how hard it is to love our bodies when we experience so much pain through it. It's all well and good saying we need to love ourselves more, but how do we even start on that journey, when we feel so much detachment or even hatred towards it? So this week, to celebrate Valentine's Day, I've written about how we can love our bodies more, even with endometriosis, over on Endometriosis News.
Hug is the "wearable heat pack designed to help soothe lower back or abdominal pain", designed by creator Fiona Bennington.
The lovely Fiona sent this baby a few months back, but I've been holding onto it for a while so I can give it a real good test run, so here's my verdict!
In the past few months I have been using yoga for period pain. Sometimes lying in bed just leaves you to focus on the waves of pain and I find myself caught up in a frenzy of physical and mental hurt as I become more and more resentful towards my body.

Living with endometriosis can be financially costly. Trying out different supplements, holistic therapies and products to help manage endometriosis can add up and I find I often just have to buy the things I can afford and can't go without. However, there are, believe it or not, luxurious/high quality products and activities tailored to periods, bodies and toxin free living that can help us feel pampered and good about ourselves, so these goodies are making my endometriosis Christmas wishlist. <3
