E116: Cycle Synching Basics for ADHD Women: Your Hormones are Your Energy Superpower
Manage episode 305677730 series 2913393
Hold up...You're telling me we can harness the power of our cycles by syncing our activities with our hormone and energy fluctuations!? Can we say mind blown?
When I learned how cycle syncing helps women create a lifestyle based on their own body's natural flow of hormonal changes, I was hooked.
And then, finding out how our menstrual cycles & our hormones affect our ADHD symptoms and energy levels, I went into full hyperfocus mode: Chronic fatigue and energy regulation are serious issues for women with ADHD.
I know this chat with wellness guru and creator of The Productive Mum community AND podcast, Sara-Jane Ladums (aka SJ) is going to help soooo many ADHD mamas.
She and I dive into the basics of cycle syncing and: - the struggles and symptoms we face during our cycles - how what we eat affects our hormonal levels - learning to accept our bodies and work WITH what's going on internally - how we can use our cycle to understand our energy regulation - why an analogy of the seasons can help us understand the phases of our cycles
Cycle syncing is absolutely fascinating and it doesn't have to be overly complicated. There are lots of simple ways you can implement the awareness of it into your daily life.
Think about ALL the things going on in your bodies...would you be willing to make a couple of tweaks so you allow yourself to feel and be your best? If so - I encourage you to consider learning more about cycle syncing.
I want you to realize how you can set your body up for success by listening to what your body needs, and making sure to support it with understanding and grace.
You live in an amazing body that can grow an entire human, mama. I hope you enjoy all the info and advice that SJ gives during this conversation. I was soaking up alllll the goodness and I want you to know, you can feel better in your body.
