You may understand your menstrual cycle. But how about syncing your lifestyle habits with it? From exercise and diet to types of activity, cycle syncing may help optimize your energy levels for exercise.
When it came down to it, you felt tired, moody, and unable to carry on with an activity that you had planned months in advance? And it wasn’t even your period yet! It may be hormonal and cycle syncing may be helpful.
You can adjust your diet, exercise and even lifestyle activities according to your menstrual cycle by cycle syncing.
Alisa Vitti, founder of Floliving.com and creator of the MyFlo app, introduced the concept in a 2014 book.
After being diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), a hormonal imbalance that causes menstrual periods to skip, Vitti created The Cycle Syncing Method to help women tune into their menstrual cycles. To help women optimise their hormones throughout their cycle, she tracks, evaluates and prescribes eating and exercise routines.
Those with PCOS, fatigue, varying energy levels, and trying to conceive may benefit from cycle syncing.
By adjusting lifestyle to hormonal shifts, women can benefit from improved overall function, weight management, fewer skincare issues, and happier lives.
