In this week's episode, I describe how I discovered the power of my menstrual cycle after I suffered from a burnout and how it helped me boost my productivity during my Bachelor's Degree and now in my business.
How I use my menstrual cycle
I plan my different tasks (ex. launches, content creation, collaborations, etc.) based on the phases of my cycle.
I also plan my breaks based on my cycle (ex. more rest during the luteal and menstrual phase).
Most importantly, I use my cycle to alert me when I’m heading towards exhaustion.
