Which week are you on
in your monthly cycle?
Find out what it reveals about
what your weekend has in store:
First day of period to Day 7
This weekend’s hormone horoscope: Inspiration is the key word for this weekend! For instance, you may be inspired by a magazine article to start your own blog, inspired by a cupcake competition to dream up a creative entry or inspired by a flyer for an exercise class to start a new workout regimen. You can thank estrogen and testosterone for the extra motivation. As they rise, they make you more easily excited by new ideas and optimistic that no matter how much work the new project takes, it’ll pay off in the end!
Day 8 to Day 13
This weekend’s hormone horoscope: This weekend, get out your phone and call a buddy or family member you haven’t spoken to in ages. Your high estrogen is making you enjoy chatting, connecting with loved ones and catching someone by surprise. And phoning someone out of the blue is the perfect way to satisfy all three of these desires!
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
This weekend’s hormone horoscope: Dust off your toolbox this weekend and make some home repairs, for instance, silence the doors that creak, unjam the window that won’t open or put up those curtains that have been sitting in a box for a year. Lower levels of estrogen make the small problems in your home stand out more than they did in the first two weeks of your cycle when this hormone was on the rise. Plus, rising progesterone, known as the “nesting hormone”, is making you want to gussy up the house!
Day 23 to the end of cycle
This weekend’s hormone horoscope: Take some time to baby your skin, hair or nails this weekend, for instance, with an at-home facial (try these), at-home hair treatment (try these) or manicure (using these easy steps) or by getting a professional service at a spa. Plunging estrogen is making you a little down about your appearance since it lowers brain chemicals needed to feel confident and self-assured. What’s more, this estrogen dip is sapping your body’s cells of moisture, making your skin, hair and nails a tad dry and dull. So, a little beauty treatment will go along way toward help you feel gorgeous again!
