Which week are you on
in your monthy cycle?
Find out what it reveals about
what your day has in store:
First day of period to Day 7
Today’s hormonescope: If you’re in a relationship, rising estrogen is making you more willing to overlook your mate’s obvious faults, like the growing pile of dirty laundry left on the floor or an inability to remember to take out the garbage after the umpteenth request. Single? Then rising estrogen is making you more optimistic about your hunt for love, giving you hope that your perfect partner is at the next singles mixer, in line behind you at the local cafe or about to post a very first ad on Match.com.
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: Your powers of persuasion are stellar today thanks to high estrogen and testosterone that make you think fast on your feet and turn you into an eloquent speaker. This makes it a great day to convince a salesperson to come down on a price, pitch your boss a ground-breaking idea or sweet-talk your honey into joining you on a weekend getaway!
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: You may notice it’s harder to remember little details today. Blame goes to rising progesterone, a hormone that fogs up your brain a bit. Luckily, there’s an easy way to sharpen recall any day of your cycle: nibble dark chocolate. A recent British study show that the flavanols it contains triggers a surge of blood to the areas of the brain’s controlling memory, making them work harder so you remember more for up to three hours after enjoying the sweet treat.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: Try not to dwell on regrets, like the great apartment you didn’t get, the second interview you didn’t snag or the expensive sunglasses you lost somewhere, but have no idea where. As estrogen plunges, it makes you more likely to ponder the negative events in your life. But, you can counter it by reminding yourself of the good things you have to be proud of, like the great friends you’ve made, the amazing talent you have or the utterly awesome way you tie a cherry stem in a knot with your tongue!
