Yes, I do! I was so overwhelmed by everything I was feeling and thinking
Each month is geared around my period routine - I know when I’m most likely to be energised, turned on, creative, tender, exhausted. I practice a hormone loving lifestyle so my symptoms aren’t too intense (unless I’ve had a stressful or hectic few weeks - then I certainly feel that in my cycle). I know it's coming because I track it religiously but I can feel the embodied shift - and I listen to my body when that happens. I use a cup and tampons. When I’m bleeding I go really slow, take naps, drink tea, ask for hugs and make sure I don’t over commit. Oh and loco love chocolate on repeat.
Meditation, yoga, breathwork, self pleasure and rest
It does - so I take a nap and try not to schedule anything too intense on the days I feel tender
REST! SLEEP! My best hack is an orgasm - whenever I'm in pain or lacking motivation, and orgasm feels like a reboot to the system.
