In today’s episode, Dr. Lisa and Dr. Toni talk about menstrual cycle awareness. Did you know that there are different times of the month that are more suited for you to be productive, be social, do analytical work, do a presentation or to rest? Your energy can fluctuate in relation to the moon cycle and your menstrual cycle. Cyclical living can be used to maximize your productivity, efficiency and success at work and at home throughout the month.

If you don’t have a regular menstrual cycle right now, you can follow the moon’s cycles.

In today’s episode, we cover:

  • Recent research looking at how the full moon can impact your sleep and menstrual cycle
  • How the US Women’s soccer team were using menstrual cycle awareness to maximize nutrition, training, rest and recovery, resulting in their second World Cup win
  • The similarities between moon phases and menstrual cycle phases
  • How changes in your hormones and moon phases can impact your mood and energy
