Feeling energised, randy and laser focused? Chances are, you’re in the Inner Summer phase, days 12-18 ish of your Female Menstrual Cycle. I’m currently on day 17 of my cycle and my body definitely understood the assignment.
As estrogen peaks during this phase, a number of things happen in our bodies.
Ovulation occurs if you’re not in extreme flight/fight or extreme deficiency.
Our bodies switch from relaxing progesterone dominance to energising estrogen dominance.
We see an up level in:
Our ability to read others
Our inclination to network and socialise
Capacity for HITT workouts
Brain energy (which can then translate into less sleep)
These are just a few of the things that you may consciously notice.
Back in the day when I didn’t track my cycle, I was in constant comparison to my Inner Summer whenever I wasn’t in it.
I didn’t understand why it was only sometimes that I weighed less, slept in less, naturally ate less, had more energy and was ticking more of my at the time boxes.
This was at a point in my life when I swung from anorexic to bulimic to extreme dieting/exercise, was struggling mentally and, had a lot of self worth issues.
Not understanding what my body was doing and how it beautifully fluctuated throughout the month did not help the situation.
Aside from a lot of self development work and learning how my mindset and programming work … understanding my cycle was instrumental in taking control of my narrative.
I’d love to help you discover the same. Let’s normalise loving and understanding each phase of our cycle and, being fully supported in all aspects of our lives!
