Today, I'm joined with me, myself, and I! In this episode, I tell you everything you need to know about your cycle. Do you want to unlock your 'pussy powr'? Press that play button!

The Circadian Clock

Tells us when we're going to get our deepest sleep, when we're going to be the most alert, when we're going to be the most coordinated, when we will have the fastest reaction time, etc. This helps regulate our body's temperature & metabolism. Men's testosterone production is also organized around the circadian clock.

Our Infradian Rhythm
The infradian rhythm is only for people that have female biological parts, and/or people going through a menstrual cycle. It is literally linked to your cycle.
Did you know the infradian rhythm creates a 25% change in your brain chemistry over the course of a month?!  In order to optimize your fluctuating metabolism, you must change what you eat and the intensities of your workout for optimal results.

We all have our own unique female biochemistry!
When you can better understand your cycle you can become happier & healthy as well as more productive & satisfied.

Did you know people with female biochemistry need more sleep than men because they have a more complex brain? (Nap time anyone?)

The four phases of the menstrual cycle are, the follicular phase (prepare phase), ovulatory phase (open up), luteal phase (work phase), and the menstrual phase (rest).

Recommendations for each phase:

Follicular phase
- Eat sauerkraut daily
- 30 minutes of cardio (3x a week)
- Plan out your month
- Research new concepts

Ovulation phase:
- Eat more leafy meals
- Bump up your workout!
- Socialize

Luteal phase:
- Eat cooked sweet potatoes daily
- Schedule times for deep thought type of work
- Make time for solo or partner date nights
- Try yoga-something to connect mind and body

Menstrual phase:
- Eat 1/4 avocado daily
- Take a 30-minute walk
- Incorporate stretch/yoga to workouts 
- SELF CARE!
