INTERNALIZE (late luteal: days 23-28)

For people who menstruate, the week before menstruation can be a time where many are left feeling low energy. Although the OVA MOON menstrual balancing supplement is an incredible remedy for that extreme fatigue, we see the intelligence of slowing down with the rhythm of the body in the days just before menstruation. We like to call the late luteal phase INTERNALIZE.

Our menstrual cycle has these rhythms too! When we are in the late luteal and menstruation phases of our cycle it's like late fall and winter. We might move slower, or not feel as social, while feeling creative and introspective. This is in stark contrast to ovulation when many of us report feeling sexy and alive and want to be out on the town.

Our menstrual cycle is a gift and the more we understand the rhythms of our cycle the more we can feel good all month long! No longer are we straining to have energy to go out and do things that our body just doesn't want to do. As we get more in tune with the cycles of life we can arrange our lives in ways that make us feel like we are flowing down the river rather than thrashing around trying to get upstream.

At OVA MOON, we think that making time for this slowing down IS the most productive thing to do at this time in our cycle (Remember the tortoise and the hare? Sometimes we have to slow down to get ahead.).

What are some of the things you do when you slow down?
