Which week are you on in your cycle?
First day of period to Day 7
Today’s hormonescope: Need to map out a driving route, put together a new bike or find your way around the mall? Research shows that this week of your cycle you’ll be best at these tasks and others that require spatial ability. The reason? Scientists speculate that low estrogen allows your testosterone to shine through, and this is a hormone that pumps up spatial skills!
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: You’ll probably be saying “like”, “love”, “happy”, “no problem” or other positive, uplifting phrases today. That’s because high estrogen and testosterone are pumping up feel-good brain chemicals that boost your mood and make you easily excited.
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: If it’s the first half of your Week 3, you’ll probably be tossing and turning at night as plunging estrogen triggers bouts of insomnia. If it’s the second half of your Week 3, you’ll likely be enjoying deep, restorative sleep as estrogen and progesterone rise, lulling you into a relaxing slumber.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: Old grudges might pop up, making you feel like taking a shot at someone who wronged you. As a result, you may get inspired to write a negative online review of a business, send an email to a coworker demanding an apology or stalk an ex on Facebook to make sure his or her life ended up just as lousy as you’d hoped.
