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: As estrogen and testosterone rise today, they boost brain chemicals that make you feel more confident about your work, school, kids, home, gorgeous hair, whatever you like most about your life. And, according to a recent study in the Journal of Consumer Research, these prideful feelings affect your shopping habits, making you gravitate toward beautiful shoes, clothes, jewelry and other items that make you stand out in a crowd!
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: You may be tempted to overdo it today, for instance, eating a lot more, pushing yourself harder during a workout, driving faster on the road, dressing in your most fashionable outfit or going an extra round between the sheets. But who can blame you? High estrogen and testosterone are pushing you to reach, and even exceed, your limits!
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: You might find yourself lowering the volume on the radio or TV, eating mellow foods, slowing down as you drive or turning down the heat or air conditioning. The reason? Rising progesterone and lower levels of estrogen and testosterone make you prefer a less intense experience today.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: Be careful when hanging around irritable or sarcastic people today. Plunging estrogen and testosterone are already tipping you more toward a negative mood, and research shows that the pessimistic attitude of others is actually contagious. And that can end up making your mood turn foul as well.
