Girls, I don’t know about you but every month I over think my monthly cycle. I’m either dreading it or waiting on it.

Lately, I’ve been looking at my calendar, highlighting important events and marking when my flow might fall on awkward dates where I might want to wear a tight white dress, go camping or wear a bikini and swim.

Fortunately, my flow isn’t heavy so doesn’t affect or stop me from doing activities. However, I do empathise with friends and women who struggle with very heavy flow and crippling period pains.

It can be a dreaded time for us, without mentioning the ‘mood’ swings leaving our partners, colleagues or even the postman looks at us a funny way, making us want to scream or cry. The struggle is real for us and them!

Getting into an annoying habit of waiting on my period has got me into a routine of overthinking and so it seems to be the more I overthink the more it keeps me waiting. The more I want it to come on a specific date the longer it makes me wait.

What I’ve realised from this is that I’m not allowing and accepting it to flow when it should or being confident that it will come altogether (law of attraction). I’m more in a negative mindset of thinking ‘oh it’s not going to come as planned, it’s going to be that weekend I want to wear that white outfit to the races’ And guess what, sure enough, it’s out of sync.

Yesterday I had been waiting on my monthly flow for over two weeks and created all sorts of scenarios in my mind one being ‘I must be pregnant, right?’. I’m saying this knowing this is not possible, but you get the point, my mind was playing tricks.

So, what did I do? Surely enough I got a pregnancy test and of course, I wasn’t pregnant, but right after I relaxed and realised I was putting myself in a ‘stressed’ overthinking state of mind, my monthly flow arrived within the hour. This has happened not once, but twice in the last 3 months only confirming my theory that the body listens.

Another example of the body listening is in relation to negative self-talk. Everyday saying ‘I’m fat’ ‘I’m fat ‘I’m fat’ will result in the body and mind getting used to it and believing it, it’s a self-fulfilling prophecy. On the other hand, telling yourself you’re beautiful and a perfect weight will not only see your mindset improving but the body also. Trust me I’ve been there.

Negative self-talk doesn’t go away overnight but at least recognising you’re being destructive to yourself is a step in the right direction.

Thank you to my body and mind for challenging me and carrying me through each day.
