The absolute worst thing: You booked a networking event a few weeks back; The day of the event is here and you’re on your period, you have no energy, and you simply just DON’T want to be there. Sound familiar? Let me introduce the concept of cycle mapping.
I spent YEARS fighting to work against my cycle and my body’s natural rhythms and let me tell you…it’s rough! Our world was designed with a man’s 24-hour cycle in mind but as women, we have a 28-day cycle that dictates our energy, focus, and strengths on any given day. The solution? Cycle mapping!
Cycle mapping is a way of tuning into and embracing the different phases of your cycle so that you can utilize your cycle to work FOR you rather than fighting against it. Sounds pretty dreamy, right?!
