Jun 30 Stay In Your Comfort Zone!
Uncomfortable, awkward, and fear-inducing—no, we’re not talking about a chance encounter with our exes. It’s that other special, unannounced visitor that really cramps our style: our periods. The average woman will spend over six years of her life on her period. Six years! That’s no small amount of time.
We don’t know about you, but if we’re going to spend six years doing something, we want to maximize the comfort and minimize the unpleasantness of this time. We’ve gone ahead and compiled a list of some great ways to create comfort during the time when you need it most. We hope these bring you #skindependence during your time of the month.

Treat Yourself to a Decadent Treat
When your period comes, it often brings with it some seriously intense cravings, doesn’t it? And when you’re not feeling your best, it can help to have any one of your seven favorite delectable snacks on hand to help ease the woe. Get out to the market, stock up on your favorites, maybe even put in some time in the kitchen, and make sure you’ve got everything and anything you could want to nosh on during your period.
Netflix & Chill, For Real
One of the best things for us girls when Aunt Flo is in town is to just hole up and watch some good T.V., or even some really bad T.V. Sometimes, the worse the better, right? So, next time you’re on your period, call it an early night, sit back with a snack and a glass (or bottle) of wine, and binge-watch an entire season of Orange is the New Black. And with the comfort and reliability of Walgreens Dri-Fit™ system, you won’t have to worry about changing your pad until season two!
Get Your Workout On
Exercise can require quite a bit of motivation, and sometimes more motivation than we have when we’re on our period, but that can be all the more reason to get yourself to the gym and break a sweat. Even though it may seem like more trouble than it’s worth, getting in some quality exercise can do just the trick when it comes to lessening the general ickiness of being on your period.
Dress to Impress Nonetheless
When you’re bloated and plagued with cramps, and it seems like nothing fits, it can be all too enticing to just throw on your old sweat pants and your favorite concert t-shirt and call it a week. However, the old adage rings true—when you look good, you feel good! Make your comfy outfit chic with some flowy maxi dresses, some airy tops, or even some confidence-inspiring athleisure wear.
Enjoy a Pedi
When you’ve done all you can to make this the most comfortable period of the month, it can help to surrender yourself to the cosmos and let someone else pamper you for a while. Treating yourself to a luxurious pedicure (like the deluxe one, ladies) is a sure way to free yourself from anything but the most peaceful thoughts. Sitting in the vibrating recliner, getting your feet massaged with hot stones, all while barely remembering that you’re even on your period, let alone wearing a Walgreens Dri-Fit™ pad, is perhaps the best way to say eff you to your period and take back the time that should be rightfully yours.
Live like you want to, and not like you have to. And stay inside your comfort zone with Well at Walgreens Dri-Fit™ system pads.
