#59 Adore Your menstrual cycle and be in flow with your life with claire baker

What if I told you that you could learn to love your period and even optimize your work flow according to it? For many women, adoring their period sounds ridiculous as it's been a source of pain, annoyance or inconvenience, but in this episode, we attempt to demystify our cycle and address listener questions about birth control effects on the body and cramps. Do we need a period? Are cramps normal? What happens to your body on birth control? 

Working with Claire's zone of genius, we also talk in depth about how to align your life and work with the natural rhythms of the 4 phases of your cycle which Claire brilliantly relates to the 4 seasons. She even gives us a tip on what time of the month we are the most sensitive to technology! This episode will make you look at your period in a different, more uplifting way and hopefully garner a sense of pride in the miracle of your feminine body!

Menstruation= Winter=New/Dark Moon

Follicular= Inner Spring=Waxing Moon

Ovulation= Summer=Full Moon

Luteal=Inner Autumn=Waning Moon



Instead of think on it, “Bleed on it” during your inner winter i.e. your menstruation, and then begin to use that clarity to take action steps during your inner spring, the follicular phase.
