Charting your menstrual cycles gives you a key to understanding why you feel the way you do on any particular day.
Charting your menstrual cycle would be one of the main instructions in a Woman’s Body – Owner’s Manual if there was one.
Charting your menstrual cycle is easy and illuminating.
You come to see the patterns of your energy levels, your creativity, your appetite and cravings, your libido, your moods. Knowing these patterns allows you to more easily ‘go with the flow’ – that is the flow of your own cycle and the other cycles – the moon phase, earth season and life season you are in, as these all effect us in major ways.
When you have this information you can plan your daily life around what you know will be so, ‘swimming’ with the currents rather than against them.
Knowing one cycle, you know them all.
