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: Good moods are more likely to strike today thanks to rising estrogen and testosterone, which boost feel-good brain chemicals (like serotonin and endorphins) as they rise. Want to feel even happier? When a good mood strikes, doodle! Or sing, scrapbook, knit or do any other creative activity. Channeling your inner artist while happy keeps a joyous mood around longer, reveals a new study in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology. The reason? Being creative is fun, which gives you even more to smile about.
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: High estrogen and testosterone are pushing your energy into overdrive! Not feeling the energy boost? Then it might be a warning that something’s wrong. For instance, you might be low in iron or vitamins or you could be stressed about an unresolved issue. Find out the cause and you’ll be back on track to enjoying your high hormone peppiness once again.
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: You’ll likely have more sympathy for others today, for instance, a glum pal who’s having a tough time or a coworker who thinks she’s losing her job. Your rising progesterone is bringing out your nurturing instincts and lower levels of estrogen make it easier for you to focus on other people’s emotional needs than you had during the first two weeks of your cycle.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: You may find it difficult to focus today as descending estrogen brings down your powers of concentration, making it easier to lose your train of thought.
