Angela talks to Renae Fiek about optimising high performance for women, including the importance of understanding and working with the menstrual cycle to enhance productivity, creativity, and overall well-being.

They explore the different phases of the cycle, such as the recharge phase, the action phase, and the admin phase, and how each phase affects energy levels, focus, and motivation. They also touch on the interplay between hormones, circadian rhythms, and productivity.

Key Takeaways

Tracking your menstrual cycle and being aware of the different phases can help optimise your performance and productivity.
It's important to honour your body's natural rhythms and adjust your tasks and activities accordingly.
Pay attention to your energy levels throughout the day and schedule your most important tasks during times when you feel most energised and focused.
Blocking off time in your calendar for the luteal and menstrual phases can help you prioritise rest and recovery during those times.
Taking care of your overall health, including nutrition and exercise, can support your energy levels and performance throughout your menstrual cycle.

Best Moments

"We have estrogen in the first half of the month and estrogen is that hormone that kind of makes us feel like sharp and clear and ready to produce and go and push hard."

"It's as simple as just making that micro shift, like the awareness that you talk about, just bringing the awareness to where we are throughout our phases."

"It's about creating this rhythm throughout the entire month versus feeling like we have to just keep pushing and allowing ourselves that permission, like you talked about, and letting go of the guilt."

"So those are kind of like an overview of the four phases and really how we kind of match them up with our productivity and our work."

"We have these rhythms throughout the day. We have the rhythms through the month with our menstrual cycle. We even have seasonal rhythms”
