🌸 Luteal Phase 🌸
The luteal phase begins directly after ovulation and leads up to the beginning of our next menstruation. Progesterone levels rise for 12-16 days, causing a temperature shift to finish off our cycle.
During this phase, the right hemisphere of the brain (intuitive/creative) becomes more active in its communication with the left (logical) hemisphere of the brain. Because of this, journaling can become very useful for listening to our intuition and inspirations.
Females become more in tune with their inner knowing and what is not working in their lives during this time. Considering this, we should tend to the womb by reflecting with ourselves, acknowledging personal health (emotional, mental and physical), getting rid of what does not feel nourishing in our lives, and recognizing what should be kept.
The luteal phase is a time where we practice slowing down by implementing self care practices. Self care means something unique to each person, so utilize what feels good to you (foot soak, face mask, sing, paint, dance, write, sleep, say no to ‘outings’, breathe deeply... the list goes on).
