Work Smarter – Not Harder

April 05, 20233 min read


Did you know that your cycle gives you superpowers? If you haven’t checked out the Reproductive Rebel podcast, we took a look at this concept a few weeks ago.

Why is it important to know that you are a cyclical being? 

When we try to “work like men” we fail. Our energy fails us. Our minds fail us. We feel like we are not enough.

Are you ready to change that?

You are enough. You are more than enough.

With a little reframing, you will go from feeling like you never meet the bar to hitting all your targets and more with ease.

Phases Of Your Cycle

Your cycle is divided into two halves – the follicular phase and the luteal phase.

Within those phases, we have two “micro moments” if you will. The first of these two events kicks off the follicular phase. This is menstruation.

Your menstrual month begins on the first day you have fresh red flow. The brown, pink or red spotting that you get before the flow commits does not count as day one.

Once your bleed has come to a close, you continue in the follicular phase until ovulation.

Ovulation is the second “micro moment” that kicks off the start of the luteal phase. Once you ovulate the luteal phase continues until the bleed returns.

Why Is This Important?

So why should you care about this information? You have lived your whole bleeding life without knowing the ins and outs of this – why is it important now?

This information has the power to transform your life.

  • It will improve your immune system. 

  • It will improve your energy. 

  • It will improve period symptoms.

  • It will improve PMS or PMDD symptoms.

  • It will improve your work productivity and performance.

Do you see how important it is now? It will change how you feel and experience your life in every way.

In a landscape where women’s body sovereignty is being challenged in a way it hasn’t been for over 50 years – knowing when you are fertile and when you are not empowers your life.

You can only get pregnant seven days out of the ENTIRE month. Seven. That’s it.

If you know what you are looking for in your body, it changes everything.

  • No more missed days at work

  • No more missing school

  • No more fear around “what if I could get pregnant?”

Your body knowledge is true body autonomy.

What Can I Do About It?

You are not alone. There are so many women in the world that don’t understand how their body changes every month and what that means for their health and their life.

All of that changes when you invest in yourself.

The Tao of Women Institute is an incredible resource that was created from the voices of women just like you.
