Cyclical Living

What is cyclical living?

Exploring a lifestyle aligned with the cycles around us.

Cyclical living means living in tune with the fluctuating rhythms of your hormones and menstrual cycle, and with the cycles all around us: nature’s seasons, the lunar cycle, the energies of each day, the creative cycle, and even our life cycle.

By tuning into the four phases of your menstrual cycle and noticing the dance your hormones do month-over-month, and then charting your own experience with these cycles, we can begin to notice patterns. As females, we are the more predictable sex hormonally. Every month, our brains and ovaries do their best to get pregnant.

With this in mind, we can begin to align our lifestyle, our business, our creativity, even our social calendar with our menstrual cycle.

Just like we may feel more tired in the winter months and more social when the summer sun is slashing down across the perfect outdoor patio, we feel differently in each menstrual cycle phase. Each week brings a new energy, a new focus, and new shadows (this is where working with a menstrual cycle coach may come in handy!)

Cyclical living is a long-lost art, a homecoming for many women and menstruators. When I explain the work I do, there’s always a lightbulb moment amongst the women I’m speaking with because we inherently know we feel differently throughout the month… we maybe just didn’t realize the repetitive, cyclical nature of those thoughts and feelings.

From this foundation, there are so many avenues to explore and yet the basics of cyclical living will always be to chart your own menstrual cycle and learn how you feel throughout the month. Start there.

Tell me: Are you familiar with cyclical living? What else would you love to learn about this lifestyle?

Cycle charting is the practice of journaling how you’re feeling mentally, physically and spiritually each day with the hope of discovering monthly patterns in your behaviour and emotions, as dictated by your menstrual cycle.


"The more I dive into this place, the more I find comfort in the uncomfortable, the more I begin to notice the shifts in my mental landscape. How my mind, my body, and my spirit react to these creative endeavours differently week by week..."
