For many of you, keeping a daily cycle tracking practice can be a challenge.
So I’m here to help!
Here are my top 5 tips to make tracking your cycle so much easier.
Let’s jump straight in:
1.Make it sacred! Buy a special journal that you feel excited to write in and keep it next to your bed or somewhere you sit regularly. Make it a daily ritual and connect to your womb space before writing by closing your eyes, placing your hands on your womb area and breathing in for four, out for four, four times.
2. Suit Yourself! Write at the time of day that feels easiest for you. It sounds obvious but this is absolutely vital to keep the practice going and make it a habit. Everyone will have their own preference for this - in the morning with your morning cuppa ☕️ at your desk, before you go to bed, whatever makes it the easiest for you and less like a ‘chore’. Remember this is a wonderful ritual to add insight, balance and harmony into your life, not another task to get done. I tend to write mine in the morning and then the next day I will add a little more if anything happened later that day that's worth noting down.
3. Commit! Say to yourself you will track for three months at least. That's three cycles...and by the end of the third you will be hooked! You see the longer you track the clearer the insight you will gain and the more you will be able to understand yourself and create positive new changes in your life. A little effort goes a long way here!
4. Add gratitude! To take cycle tracking to the next level, make gratitude part of your daily tracking ritual. Begin with 3 things you are grateful for in your life and 3 things you are grateful for about yourself. Yep, you heard me. This opening enquiry practice helps you get into a reflective space, nourishes your spirit and is an amazing tool to build self love and opens the space for your cycle tracking to begin in a positive, loving frame of mind.
5. Don’t give up! If you fall off the cycle-tracking wagon, don’t worry! Just pick up where you left off and fill in as much as you can from the day/s you’ve missed. Or just start from the day you are on and go from there. Sack off guilt, it’s where you’re at, not where you’re from. Wonders await if you pick yourself up and carry on.
