? Luteal – Right before your Period (10-14 days) – Your Left & Right brain collide. Feelings of irritability, overwhelm, & “not good enough.” Dip in Serotonin, feel good hormone. (It will pass).
?️ Menstrual – Period (3-7 days) – If you didn’t resolve tension this week – then you will become emotionally, mentally & physically drained.
