Do you notice that you feel completely different week to week? Are you lost when it comes to the shifts of your hormonal patterns? Do they seem to affect your work life and impact your productivity?
I bet that some weeks you find yourself working late, deeply focused and excited by a new project, wondering where the time went. Yet, other weeks you find it hard to get motivated, feel maxed-out after half a day, and can’t wait to get home to the couch and Netflix. And I bet that if you tracked exactly when you felt each way, you’d see a pattern.
That’s because women are cyclical in nature, and how we feel, as well as our strengths, desires, talents, and behavior shifts with our changing hormone patterns. Having female hormones does not mean you lose a week a month to PMS and your period. It just means that by noticing these shifts and then working with your hormones, you can make your hormones work for you.
That said, know that there is not one single day or week when women are not just as capable as men (who have a quotidian hormonal pattern) in every work-related capacity. What women’s cyclical nature means is that we can and do work differently depending on what abilities are brought forward by each phase – from detail-orientated focus to creativity to communication skills.
Simply, we are not the same day-in-day-out, and this an amazingly valuable piece of knowledge and a wonderful resource from which we can draw to meet our goals.
Will you join me in stepping into a new way of thinking? A way that could actually position your period as an advantage?
If you ever wished you could feel great, and be productive, all month long and use your cycle to be even more successful at work, wish no more because the answer is here!
You can learn how to leverage your cycle at work and beyond. Including –
- How to move from “hormonal victimhood” to being a “predictable power-house” – you can learn your hormonal shifts so you know exactly what’s coming and when. You don’t need to feel like you’re being hit by waves, instead you can actually surf the hormonal waves as they come in. Once you understand what’s happening, it becomes very simple to leverage that knowledge to your advantage and have mastery over what was once so overwhelming.
- Understanding the 4 distinct phases of your cycle and how to leverage each one – your cycle has 4 phases – the follicular phase, the ovulatory phase, the luteal phase and the menstruation phase – and during each your hormones are at a different level and interplay in a different way. This is why I created the MyFLO app – to help you know exactly which phase you’re in and what activities are ideal for each phase. Be sure to download it here and get started on cycle – syncing your way to success! You’ll know when to project plan, when your negotiation skills are at their peak, when to plan plenty of time to get things done with ease, and when to evaluate your progress. Each phase of your cycle provides you with amazing brain super powers, it’s essential to know what those are and when they happen, so you can plan ahead to take advantage of them. As you cycle through these different strengths and strategically leverage these areas of focus during the month, you’ll accelerate your progress dramatically all while working smarter not harder. That’s essential for us as women, because working on the 24/7 masculine clock leads to an increase in the internal environment that breeds hormonal symptoms.
I truly believe that the first step to success is remembering that you have a body! Working all from the neck up and ignoring what your body has to say just leads to burn out. There are better ways to meet your goals than endless to-do lists and staying late at the office every night. When you’re in your FLO, what you want and need will come more easily to you.
The great bonus of the Cycle Syncing strategy for your career is – less stress! You can ease your stress levels by not working against your body and your hormones, always swimming against the stream.
If you are in a place where your luteal/pre-menstrual phase and/or your period are wiping you out physically and mentally due to PMS, cramps, depression and more, then you definitely need to get your hormones back on track to be able to take advantage of what they can offer.
You are suffering from a hormonal imbalance that is open and responsive to natural remedies. Your pre-menstrual phase and menstruation phase can and should be no worse than any other time of the month, just different. Address your diet, add in supplements, and you can banish your PMS for good, just like many of my FLO Living graduates.
The secret to successful project planning and execution is in your cycle. Your hormonal phases can be your guide, giving you a blueprint to launch, execute, and finish projects of all kinds. Your body can be the best life coach for your career, if you’re open to hear the wisdom. Don’t let another month go by without embracing the inherent power in your panties!
Always remember, that once you have the right information about how your body really works, you can start making health choices that finally start to work for you! You can do this – the science of your body is on your side!
