Which week are you on in your cycle?
First day of period to Day 7
Today’s hormonescope: Your New Year’s Eve is all about fun! Rising estrogen is putting you in the mood to be silly, so you’ll likely don the pom-pom hat, blow the noise maker and play any New Year’s Eve game that folks can think up. You’ll also enjoy recreating traditions, such as going to see fireworks or hosting a themed party like you or your parents did. To make your New Year’s Eve better, don’t spend it alone! Your rising estrogen and testosterone are making you want to mingle and ring in 2011 with favorite friends and relatives!
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: If you allow your Week 2 self to let down her hair, folks better move out of the way! High estrogen and testosterone are making you ready to down champagne and kick up your heels! You’re not one to mope about past mistakes or worry about future changes. You’re ready to live in the present and enjoy every second of it. To make your New Year’s Eve better, be adventurous! Kiss your secret crush, go to the funky party, try the weird hors d’oevres and do anything else that’s out of the ordinary. You’ll get a super-rush and have a more interesting story to tell tomorrow!
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: You may shed a tear or two as 2010 passes into 2011. Rising progesterone is making you a tad sentimental, so you may be thinking about how fast the years are going by, how quickly kids grow up, the people you love who moved away in the past 12 months or big changes you’ll be making in 2011. To make this New Year’s Eve better, try to avoid spiraling into a total sobfest by also thinking of happy times you have to look forward to in the coming year, like a graduation, party or vacation.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: You are so ready to wave goodbye to 2010. Plunging estrogen is bringing down feel-good brain chemicals, which has you more likely to focus on the irritations and snags you hit this year. To make this New Year’s Eve better, try to also remember the good times you had, like going on a trip with someone special, trying something different for the first time, bowling your best game or making a new friend.
