Your Period, Moon + Cyclical Living Questions Answered!

Your Period, Moon + Cyclical Living Questions Answered!

The number one thing I’ve heard since making the rounds on all the podcasts and launching Do Less is that people’s minds are blown by the information about cyclical living and how we have this inner blueprint for productivity that no one has ever taught you…until now.

It’s pretty straightforward if you have a normal, healthy, regular 28-day menstrual cycle, but there are so many reasons that may not be the case.

Pregnancy. Menopause. Being a man. Bleeding on the full moon. Hormonal birth control. An IUD. Breast cancer treatment. Nursing. Irregular cycles that vary between 17-43 days. PCOS. Perimenopause. Working in a corporate setting that doesn’t support this whole cyclical living thing.

Since Do Less came out, my DM’s and our inbox have been filling up with your questions about your period, the moon, and how this whole cyclical living and planning thing works for your specific situation.

So, Mike and I recorded a brand-new, incredibly meaty episode of The Kate & Mike Show to answer all of your cyclical living and planning questions.

(Well, mostly I answered your questions and then Mike asked me more.)

Here’s what we covered:

If you’ve had questions about how your energy cycles, productivity cycles, and creativity cycles work, I’m 99% sure we covered it in this episode.

Plus, even if you don’t think you have a cyclical living question, I guarantee we’ll answer a question in this episode you didn’t even know you had.

All of us, no matter our gender expression or chromosomal makeup, are cyclical beings to one degree or another.

Working with your own unique cyclical nature is the secret to unlocking your superpowers of productivity, creativity, and renewable energy.

The key is knowing how to work with what you’ve got to be the youest you that you can be.

That’s what today’s episode will teach you.

Once you’ve listened, we want to know:

What was your biggest insight from today’s episode? Do you have more questions that we didn’t cover? How will you use what you learned in your business and life?

    Kate, I love listening to your podcast and reading your blog! You’ve covered a range of “period scenarios” here, for example with how does it work if you’re on hormonal birth control, though I’m wondering how does it work with irregular periods due to medical conditions such as PCOS, endometriosis or uterine fibroids? You regularly mention the 3-6 days period once a month but that doesn’t apply to a lot of women out there – PCOS alone affects about 1 in 10 women. I’m curious to know your take on those issues!

    • Kate Northrup says:

      Great question Caroline! If you have PCOS I recommend seeking the support of a holistic healthcare provider who can support you in your healing such as Nicole Jardim (www.nicolejardim.com). And while you’re doing that, track the moon for more predictable cyclical living as you heal. You may even find that lunar tracking and living in sync with that energy aids your healing!
