3 keys things to cycle sync your business. As women we are not taught enough about our menstrual cycles, let alone how to actually live and thrive with them. Once I learned that cycle syncing is simply just aligning your daily lifestyle (think eating habits, business tasks, hobbies, etc.) to whatever stage of your menstrual cycle is in, the entire way I run my business changed for the better

Let’s start with a hormone horror story …

After having my fourth child and launching a business in 2020, I couldn’t figure out why sometimes I felt energetic and ready to take on endless sales calls, and on other days when I couldn’t even be pulled away from the couch long enough even to open my computer.

Was it postpartum depression? Anxiety? I had no clue! All I knew is that I couldn’t function the same way at the beginning of the month as I could at the end of the month. I spoke to my doctor about it and we agreed to do a hormone panel and see how everything was going six months postpartum. What we discovered was shocking, to say the least …

My hormones were off the charts in a million directions and explained why I was struggling so much with regulating my life with four kids. My doctor suggested I try seed cycling along my natural menstrual cycle and it was like a light went off in my head. 

I immediately started doing research on everything that had to do with syncing your life with your cycle and genuinely understanding how my body works. I learned three key things that are critical when it comes to syncing your menstrual cycle with your business. And now, I refuse to gatekeep them and would rather share them with you! 

Learn how the hormones work for each phase and what they do

When I first got started all I wanted was to understand what was happening in my body. I started with Pinterest, then TikTok, and picked up every book I could find. I learned early on that I’m going to feel my best during weeks 2 and 3 of my cycle, my follicular phase and ovulating phase. 

That’s when my energy will be high, I’m going to want to be social, and feel like I can take on the world. Then weeks one and four of my cycle are more focused on low-energy style tasks. Your menstrual phase and your luteal phase are when your progesterone is its highest and it impacts your mood and level of energy. 

Once I had a clear understanding of that, i was able to delegate tasks to specific times of the month. 

Establish which tasks in your business are low-energy tasks and high-energy tasks 

Once I understood what my body was doing throughout each month, I was then able to look at my business in a new light. 

I looked at each of the individual tasks that I had to accomplish on a daily or weekly basis and categorised them by low energy, high energy, high impact, and low impact. 

I then took each of the tasks and gave them a category within my standard operating procedures, so that when I am trying to plan out a month of work or content, I know what times are going to be the best to work on those things. 

Organise your tasks accordingly and take breaks when needed

One of the things I learned about cycle syncing my business is that as women we just don’t operate the same way as men. Let me show you …

Men are on 24-hour hormone cycles, meaning they feel relatively the same day and day out. As women that’s just not our reality. I learned how to use my cycle as a superpower to be able to not allow my business to burn me out. 

In a world where women are fighting to be like men, in every way, I am out here, embracing my natural nature as a woman and teaching and empowering other women to do the same. 

I no longer feel burned out in my business, I feel like I have balance as a woman, and use nature as a life hack. I don’t run myself into the ground anymore, trying to scale my business in a way that’s not sustainable. My business begins and ends with my cycle, as does every other area of my life.
