The more we track, the more in tune we get with the varying stages of what we can achieve in any given week. Knowing and working with our energy levels throughout our menstrual cycle sets us up to work well with our bodies and not against them. So, let's figure out how to eat, exercise, and play in line with our cycle.
Motherhood does not come with a manual or any kind of guide, but being a woman does! As we have learned from the Unlock Your Cycle series, our monthly cycles come with incredible power, prediction, and understanding of ourselves, every week of our lives. With this understanding, we can sync our cycle directly to support us in motherhood.
I see so many women burning themselves out, juggling every aspect of their lives, and not listening to what their bodies need. Let me tell you right now that there is no magic involved! These high days and low days are a perfectly normal part of the female cycle. Cycle syncing allows you to tune into your menstrual cycle and take the unknown out of your days.
Travelling as an introvert with a family in tow can be somewhat of a nightmare for those of us who are perpetually inward thinkers. Yet, giving our children experiences outside of our daily routines is something we all lean towards as parents. In this blog, we dig into a few tips and tricks about holidaying as an introvert.

But it can be a little hard to recognise these advantages as the world may seem to value being loud, outwardly social, and a little more vibrant than we can handle. So, let us count the ways being an introverted Mama is beneficial and what our introvertism can teach our kids.
As introverts, those overwhelming feelings can be amplified a hundredfold as we move from room to room in a loud, chaotic, busy and perplexing household. This week we learn how to overcome this shock and happily parent as an introvert.
“You aren't a selfish person for looking after yourself. Just a happier one.” – Jen Sincero
If the constant attachment from our kids and our inability to escape from being needed become too much and too overwhelming, it's likely you are an introvert, like me! Recognising that you are an introvert can level up your parenting game in many ways. In this first part of the series, let's look at what an introvert is and whether you are one.
While we may have a clear objective of how our days should pan out so that the kids are fed and watered, these routines are overburdening us. While routines feel like something we ‘should’ or ‘have’ to do, rituals feel more loving and nurturing and like they are focused on our best interests. And this, is one of the reasons I have dropped routines in favour of rituals.
