Have a project to do that requires juggling lots of details, concepts and/or technical facts–for instance, putting together a website, redecorating your home or building your dream birdhouse? Aim to do the bulk of it during Week 2 of your cycle (which starts 8 days after the onset of your period). You’ll likely find it’s easier to do on these days. That’s because recent studies (including this new one) show that your working memory increases as your body’s level of estrogen increases. And that’s key since working memory enables your brain hold onto and review multiple chunks of information at once, helping you come up with the best strategies and creative insight!
