Reclaiming Femininity: What Is Cycle Syncing?

 

For the last several months I have been on a journey to better overall health and wellness. One area of my health that I honestly never took quite as seriously was that of my feminine health, I figured that as long as I saw my gynecologist for my annual visits and tests were normal than that was all I needed to do.

However, there is much more to feminine health than just a normal pap smear and while this is something you may already know, this was news to me. So that brings me to the purpose of this post. I have been learning more about my menstrual cycle and the various phases so that I can better understand what is actually happening to my body, why I feel the way I feel at various times throughout the month and how to better support these changes within my body for a better experience. One method that I have been using is that of cycle syncing and as I am not a medical professional I will provide the definition courtesy of Healthline.com.

“Cycle syncing is when you change lifestyle habits like your diet or exercise routine to match the phases of your menstrual cycle. By doing this, you may become more in-tune with your hormonal needs and better manage your cycle.

Cycle syncing has helped me understand the hormonal changes our bodies go through as women and that understanding as helped me no longer dread my period and the changes my body experiences as well as alter my habits to improve my health by supporting my bodies needs throughout the phases of my cycle. I use a period tracker and follow the flow of my cycle from phase to phase supporting my hormonal changes with diet and exercise. Making these changes along with a few others we will discuss in future posts have transformed my monthly periods for the better.


I’ve created an infographic that lists the four phases of the Menstrual cycle as well as what to expect during each, how to eat and how to exercise. I hope that you find this all in one resource helpful and please leave any comments or questions you may have. 

Thanks,

Chloe
