As the post-menstrual dynamic phase fills you with energy, flow your qi or life force across the body with a brisk walk or swim a few laps. This is the time to improve your fertility. So go on a diet of steamed or sautéed fiber- and vits-rich veggies to balance hormones and improve egg quality. Utilize this high-stamina phase to solve the problems you identified during your period or to embark on new activities and routines.
So you’ve flowed through menses (pun intended). No sweat. Now, what’s next? I’m glad you asked. After the reflective phase, aka, your monthly flow, your energy levels become heightened — you now have a wealth of renewed and dynamic energy to tap into. So yup, you guessed it; it’s time to get dynamic! Get dynamic with your energy, get dynamic with your diet/exercise, get dynamic with your thinking, get dynamic with your creativity.
What Does It Mean To Get Dynamic?
Dynamic describes a process/time period that is characterized by “constant change, activity, or progress”— thank you, Google Dictionary. Therefore, this phase — just as your reflective phase — offers many gifts, one of which is restored energy.
How To Harness Your Restored Energy
Diet And Nutrition
As your energy rises, it is important to nourish yourself with foods that contain many vitamins and nutrients. Diet is critically important for hormonal balance and excellent egg quality — both of which are keys to improving and/or maintaining your fertility. Accordingly, best cooking styles are ones that allow you to harness the highest amount of nutrients from your meals. Steaming and sautéing — light cooking methods — let you preserve the healthful benefits of delicious, fiber- and vitamin-rich vegetables. And you can add all the yummy seasonings and herbs that you’d like (just watch the sodium)!
Make the most of feeling fully alive — take brisk walks, do regular aerobic exercise, like dance or kickboxing, to get your qi— your life force — circulating. Run, swim, power-walk, cycle, or do whatever movement feels good to you and your body!
Creativity And Processing
Your dynamic phase is a great time to gain clarity over any issue that has plunged you into thought (that may have surfaced during your reflective phase). You have increased physical and mental stamina. Use it to your fullest advantage! This is also an excellent time to start a new project or act on a resolution, such as a new diet or fitness routine, to make it a permanent part of your life. This is the time to open up to and allow the gifts of this phase to propel you forward — into your best life.
