Cycle Syncing: How It Can Improve Your Well-Being

No one is perfect. No matter how hard you try, something is constantly weighing you down. Allowing your health to get in the way of your goals can take a toll on you and your body, making the situation worse. But where do you begin to look after your body?


You can start by learning about your body. This doesn’t mean opening a textbook and taking notes, this means examining your very own body and seeing how it reacts on a day-to-day basis and adjusting accordingly. For women, an easy thing to start with is cycle syncing.


What Is Cycle Syncing?  


Cycle syncing is adjusting your living habits, such as work, social interactions, and exercise regimen, to better align with your menstrual cycle, which can help with a variety of period-related concerns, including:


  • Endometriosis or Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)

  • Conceiving implications

  • Painful periods

  • Lack of libido


Remember the four distinct phases while you chart your menstrual cycle, as they can help determine why you may be feeling a certain way and help you better understand your body.



Why Should You Cycle Sync?


Everyone wants to improve themselves in one way or another. Whether it be your mental state or physical state, there are small ways you can change your everyday life to better your future. 


Cycle syncing is an easy and almost effortless task you can do to understand your body better and learn how to become the best version of yourself.


  1. Menstrual Phase: Prepare


The most prominent and well-known stage is the menstrual phase. It's the first day of your cycle, which usually lasts for one to six days and happens when the uterine walls shed, causing symptoms such as spotting, fatigue, bloating, bleeding, and cramps. The intensity of these symptoms may vary according to your body.


During this phase, estrogen and progesterone levels are at their lowest, so make a point to stay hydrated, eat well, and listen to your body. Gentle motions, teas, and proteins can help you quickly cycle sync.


  1. Follicular Phase: Look After Yourself


The follicular phase typically lasts from day 1-14.  During this phase, your hormone levels rise, resulting in glowing skin and an increase in energy and libido.


It's essential to increase the intensity of your exercises during this time and allow your creative juices to flow. Maintaining hydration and finding healthy foods you and your family enjoy will also accelerate the cycle synchronization process.


  1. Ovulatory Phase: Get Intimate


The ovulatory stage is one of the most essential phases of the process. As testosterone and progesterone levels rise and estrogen peaks, you may increase energy, desire, and self-confidence.  This is the best time to become pregnant since your reproductive window is open for two to three days before your temperature increases. 


Make sure you are increasing your exercise intensity, socializing, and consuming anti-inflammatory foods to flush out excess estrogen as it will help with cycle syncing as you become one step closer to becoming a better you.


  1. Luteal Phase: Refuel


The final part of your menstrual cycle is known as the luteal phase. You often start developing acne and PMS symptoms a few days before your period. Your progesterone and estrogen levels fall as your cycle comes to an end. You can experience bloating, tiredness, and decreased libido.


You will be more prepared for the beginning of your new cycle when it begins all over again if you use this time to organize, reduce the intensity of your workouts, and eat foods high in magnesium.


Whatever your goal is for yourself, make it count. There is no better feeling than becoming a better version of yourself and improving your overall mental, physical, and emotional well-being. Cycle syncing may not be for everyone, but it doesn’t hurt to try it out. It could change how you view yourself and your body.
