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: Try to avoid saying “yes” too much today. Rising estrogen is making you overly optimistic that you can take on any project, responsibility and task that folks ask you to do. But, you may be forgetting about all the other tasks you’ve already agreed to, which can lead to schedule overload and the kind of stress you probably don’t need.
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: High drama-loving estrogen and testosterone are making you have over-the-top reactions today. For instance, you may squeal loudly when spotting a killer sale, curse a blue streak at a car that cut you off or do your happy dance for all to see when you find forgotten cash in your jeans pocket.
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: While Week 1 is about new beginnings and inspiration thanks to rising estrogen and testosterone, Week 3 is about trying to keep the flame alive. That’s because rising sedating progesterone coupled with lower levels of estrogen and testosterone sap your motivation and make you focus on the challenges of projects and to-dos rather than the rewards. You can overcome this hormonal slow-down by tackling tasks in small increments and remembering why you started projects to begin with.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: This week is when your inner absent-minded professor comes out: You’re a little muddled, a tad forgetful and pretty uncoordinated. The culprit? Plunging estrogen and testosterone, which bring down your brain powers and dexterity as they descend.
