Life is full of valuable lessons and it’s time to talk about periods because society doesn't celebrate the menstrual cycle. The truth is that it can be bloody hard living in a body that bleeds once a month. Talking to someone can help and some of the lessons Claire Baker has learnt along the way may just come in handy. Everything you need to know to live in sync with your menstrual cycle.
We're taught not to discuss periods in public. Society doesn’t celebrate the menstrual cycle. Instead we say it's 'that time of the month' when 'Aunt Flo is visiting' and we've 'got the painters in'. But the truth is that it can be bloody hard living in a body that bleeds once a month. Have you ever stuffed a tampon up your sleeve on your way to the office bathroom? Avoided eye contact with the cashier as you paid for your sanitary pads? Felt overwhelmed, exhausted and annoyed by your hormones? Well, you are not alone. It's time we started speaking up about our menstrual cycles, and now everyone's friendly neighbourhood period coach, Claire Baker, is here to start the conversation!
Taking you through her 50 best pieces of advice, Claire explains the ‘four seasons’ of our menstrual cycle and how they vary hormonally to affect everything from mood, motivation and memory, to energy levels, confidence, focus and stress. You’ll learn how to chart your cycle to identify your unique superpowers in each hormonal phase, the tools you need to work with your body rather than pushing against it, and that you’re not crazy: it’s completely natural to feel different from week-to-week.
