Exploring Kuala Lumpur, PCOS Style
Dec 21, 2023
The notion surrounding “self-care” might elicit a few eye rolls these days, and let's face it, it's become a bit of a cliché. However, the fact remains that self-care is essential for many, particularly for women dealing with PCOS. And if travelling is your definition of self-care, then Kuala Lumpur is a good place to kickstart your exploration.
Give yourself a little extra lovin’ as you wander around this dazzling city, in a way that nourishes your body, clears your mind, and rejuvenates your soul. Buckle up and read on as we journey through some of the PCOS-friendly pitstops that are well worth your visit.
Traveling with PCOS
Traveling with PCOS is like dancing to a rhythm that only we can hear. It's a suitcase filled with a whirlwind of hormones, mood swings, fatigue and more.
While the world may not fully grasp the unique journey of a PCOS traveler, that's precisely what sets us apart and makes our explorations extraordinary. Well, here's why wandering with PCOS is a one-of-a-kind adventure:
PCOS often comes with dietary considerations. Women with PCOS are mindful of the food they eat, seeking out PCOS-friendly options even in unfamiliar locales. Exploring local cuisine can be a bit more challenging, which is why planning ahead is essential when it comes to voyaging.
Mood & Emotion
Mood swings are a part of the PCOS package, and traveling can sometimes intensify these women’s emotional shifts. Coping with the highs and lows while exploring a new place can be a unique challenge. This is where relaxing activities come in, helping to keep the emotional toll at bay.
PCOS women might not be entirely sure how their bodies will react to the change in routine, from different environments to new foods. Their unpredictable hormonal levels add an extra layer of complexity. But fear not, for nature has its way of soothing the journey, making everything better.
