5 Life Hacks to Relax & Get Rid of Cramps

I have a few go-to life hacks that help me relax and get rid of muscle aches and cramps. Between New York and Coachella, I am SO ready to get my zen on at home!

Guys – my body is so tired!! I did back to back workouts in NYC and then danced and played in the desert for 3 days. Girlfriend needs a break!

I also was SUPER lucky and “that time of the month” was this weekend. Yay! Needless to say I’ve had some awesome cramps. Woop Woop Party People!

I could 100% go for all of these life hacks right now, but the two I absolutely NEED in my life are Calm and a seriously good stretch sesh.

life hacks to relax and reduce muscle soreness

Calm is my PMS saving grace! It takes those cramps away STAT and helps me just chill out. It’s basically powdered magnesium which is natural muscle relaxer ANNNND helps to decrease stress. Basically it’s the only way I can make through that one week a month 🙂 hah

You can see it in the video below at (1:05 minutes).


I’ve been trying to switch up my morning routine and be better about stretching every day. This week I’ve been living in half pigeon…it’s just so ridiculously good for relaxing your hips and lower back. Whenever I’m PMS’ing that’s where I feel it the worst so these stretches totally help!

I made this Relaxing playlist for you girls. It’s some of the songs I listen to when I stretch and fly. Major fear of flying here, I always need help relaxing mid flight.

I travel a lot for work, so sometimes the thought of being away from home so much or all the things I need to do when I get home stresses me out the most 🙂 thx for the tips!!!

I travel a lot for work, so the thought of being away from home so long and all the things I have to do when I get back stresses me out. Thanks for the tips!!!


My biggest stressor at the moment is buying a house. It’s one of the biggest decisions! And I also despise moving!

My number one stresser in my life lately has been work! I have to wake up at 4:30 am and I hardly ever get to bed on time because of the piles of paperwork to complete !

Also, thanks for the playlist girl!


I definitely would say academics can be stressful! I definitely learn differently, but I make sure to use my learning differences to my advantage, and of course, not let it define me! This certain stress definitely has helped me build resilience and a good work ethic! Thanks for tips. 🙂

Most of my stress comes from my job. We’re crazy busy and there is a lot of tension between co-.workers.


I hate when things that should go smoothly because they are easy/simple go horribly wrong. I.E. – simple grocery store run for milk and there’s no milk at the store. Big stuff I can handle, it’s the simple things that become difficult are my stressor.

Right now work stresses me out the most.


Right now, my #1 stressor is job interviews. I get so stressed the night before just thinking about what questions they’re going to ask or what I’m going to say. You never know if you’re going to be walking into a room with just one interviewer or an entire board at the table!
