Have you heard about cycle syncing to be more in tune with your body?
Not only does cycle syncing allow us to get more in tune with our bodies and our feminine energy, but it also allows us to plan out our lives and allows us to live our lives in a more efficient way.
If you know your limitations, depending on what phase of the cycle you’re in, you will be better able to give your body the specific support it needs during that time. For instance, feeling tired during your luteal cycle and deciding to rest (or do yoga) instead of going to that HIIT class. You being tired is a message from your body to SLOW DOWN.
Benefits to this way of living includes:
- Helps you maintain stable blood sugar levels. Knowing that in follicular phase you are more insulin sensitive and in luteal phase you are more insulin resistant, you can change your diet during those phases to better accommodate your metabolism and your body!
- Helps reduce stress. If you know that you are going to be more emotional or sensitive during certain phases of your cycle (typically luteal and menstrual), this will allow you to take a step back, reflect, and realize that these perceived challenges could be exacerbated by your hormones.
- Improves bowel movements and gut health
- Lowers intensity of PMS
- More stable mood
- Increased libido
- Boosted productivity and mental clarity
