But, truth is, your period week isn’t all bad news.
Turns out, when you’ve got a bit of stress during your period–say, about a test, tight deadline or job interview–you actually perform better.
That’s right–you get smarter during your period when under stress.
That’s the news from a 1998 study from the University of London that found when you combine of the mood boost you get from rising estrogen in your period week with a little stress, you get revved and excited, which improves your memory, decision-making skills and other cognitive abilities.
So, what can you do with this information? Now that you know a bit of stress sharpens your noggin in your period week, use it to your advantage by taking on more challenging projects during these days!
