10th day of my month, in what we called the preovulatory phase or the virgin phase. For several months I have been checking my body day after day (not all but almost) in order to find a pattern of behavior, of skills, of motivations, of functioning…
For those who are not very focused on this theme, the woman lives four stages a month, and these stages have very defined characteristics. If a woman listens her body each day, points out sensations and emotions, physical and mental changes, among other things, she may discover that she is four women in one. That’s why we always believe that we are unstable. There is the answer.
In this first virgin phase, which is about seven days after having menstruated, my sensation is of energy, of determination, of self-esteem, among many other things. But what most calls me attention today is how it affects me in my work.
My tasks are to manage, design, write and plan, basically. It’s not little huh ?. Well, in this week I notice that creativity is dispersed, that I find it difficult to empathize with the subject in question to start developing something new. It’s hard for me to draw, it’s hard for me to write about emotional issues or that they imply subjectivity. In short, I find it difficult to be an artist or publicist.
However, in this week I find it easy to plan, structure, read boring and objective texts. I advance work organizing and directing. Managing projects in which I describe what needs to be done, the steps to be taken …
The other day I read to a friend on Facebook who was “hallucinating” because she did not stop working and did not get tired. My friend, that may coincide with your first or third week of the month. If you start to investigate what I tell you, you will surely find a pattern. And the best thing is that this pattern works much better.
Data: we are not all the same and we do not all respond equally to the different phases, that’s why your business is to keep your own journal and not only guide you through the “scientific” texts.
We must know ourselves and our biorhythms, our energies according to the week in which we are. Thus we will stop fighting against the current, we will stop wanting to work hard when the body asks for rest, we will stop wanting to do artistic or emotional tasks when the body asks us for planning, determination, objectivity. Do not you find it interesting?
Do you still study your days based on some personal structure or others? What do you notice in your work in the week of the virgin or preovulatory? And what notes in your house or with your friends?
I want to clarify that I am not an expert on the subject. This is my space of expression and in it I reflect my progress in this and other matters. Do not crush me if some data I have given is not adjusted to your reality or general reality. Here I write from my own point of view. Thanks for respecting.
