Do You Rest According to Your Cycle?
I’m your typical Type A personality. I always have a long to-do list and resting never makes its way to the top of the list. But I realized that I needed to re-evaluate that, especially on the first day of my cycle.
Previously I’ve just tried to fight against the pain and fatigue, but as we all know that doesn’t get us very far. If anything, it digs a deeper hole.
So, this morning I gave myself the opportunity to rest. I didn’t rest all day because I didn’t feel I needed that, but I at least gave myself permission to take a break and have a bit of a slower paced day. It felt so good, I think I might just try it every month!
I’m curious, do you give yourself permission to rest based on the days of your cycle?
