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: You may get a bit bummed by all the Week 4 premenstrual eating, drinking and couch potatoing you did. Try not to let it get you down. Instead, harness your rising estrogen and testosterone energy and motivation to restart an exercise routine and diet. Once you begin, you’ll feel happier. Plus, you’ll have these rising hormones pumping up your resolve to continue all the way through the end of Week 2!
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: Try to pay closer attention to details today. High estrogen and testosterone are speeding you up and making you gloss over key facts in contracts and sales spiels. And these hormones are also pumping up your optimism, making you pretty sure that whatever you missed wasn’t necessary to begin with. Truth? One missed detail while applying for a loan, opening a new bank account, applying for a job or even just ordering a sandwich can become a big problem. So slow down and double-check before committing to anything.
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: You may be getting a bit worried about long-range goals, for instance, getting into school, getting married, having kids, starting or changing your career or saving for retirement. Why the anxiety? This week’s rising progesterone makes you more prone to focusing on your home, family and life while lower levels of estrogen and testosterone reduce your confidence in all the aforementioned. To feel more secure, try working on a plan for at least one life goal today and take one step to make it happen, even if it’s just searching the Internet or making a phone call. You’ll feel instantly better and may even be inspired to make a second, third and fourth step to make your dream a reality!
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: If you’ve had problems in the first three weeks of your monthly cycle, they’ll seem like huge humongous honkin life blocks this week as estrogen and testsosterone plunge, sapping any optimism, patience and confidence you had left. Try not to drown your sorrows in a dozen bowls of ice cream and chips, a case of wine or hours of mindless reality TV. And try not to spike your blood pressure with endless worrying. If no solution can be had, then try healthier ways to deal with the problem: Distract yourself with something positive, like a walk in a park, or talk things through with an upbeat friend. Also remember that your hormones are making your situation look bleaker than it may be. Things could look brighter once estrogen and testosterone rise again in Week 1, so hang on!
