- Take action in tune with who you are.
- Identify what you love, what you are good at, where your talent lie.
- These are your unique gifts to express into the world.
- Taking action, high self-belief, optimism, risk-taking, logical thinking, easy learning, good memory and higher levels of concentration, planning and organizing, research.
- This is the time to start something new. Start the new diet or fitness regime, write up your CV and research jobs, learn something relevant to your work, catch up on work unfinished in your menstrual phase. Make a list of everything you need to do and work alone so that you can work fast.
- Focus on mental tasks such as budgets, creating reports, strategic planning, and reading complex materials.
- If we look at the world through blue glasses it looks blue.
- If we look through pink glasses it looks pink.
- But if we shut our eyes and feel the world with our hands we know its true shape.
- The Goddess asks you to shut the eyes of your mind and feel with your heart.
- Understanding people’s emotions and needs, altruism, productiveness, practical focus, good communication and listening skills, ability to help and nurture others, emotional strength, mediation and conflict resolution. This is the time to create and nurture productive relationships you are a natural team player. Run meetings, carry out staff assessment, customer relations and complaints management.
- Empathize with the needs of co-workers, clients and target audiences and focus on selling your ideas to people. Market yourself.
- Also help other people to achieve their workloads and needs, and perhaps for a week be the workplace ‘Agony Aunt’.
- All the love, acceptance and worth you ever desired lies within the Goddess.
- Stop, relax, and she will enter.
- Now you have love, acceptance and worth,
- What are you going to do?
- Peaks of compulsive creativity and inspiration, non-logical thinking, intuition, ‘out-of-the-box’ thinking, critical analysis, solution creation, the need to clear out.
- The pre-menstrual phase is a time of decreasing physical energy and stamina, but if we do tasks when we have the energy and rest when we don’t, we can make this a highly productive and beneficial phase.
- Review the ‘to do’ list and delete or delegate non-essential tasks. Look for problems and create ‘fixes’. Give time to your wild creativity – give it projects or problems and write down your ideas and insights as they occur.
- Avoid teams and meetings and work alone so that you can work at your own pace. Clear out things that no longer work well and tidy your workspace.
- Enjoy and embrace this quiet time.
- You have permission from the Goddess to make time today to feel happy.
- Inner knowing, ability to accept and let go, big picture thinking, ability to reflect and to commit, positive visualization, simplicity, recognizing core needs and referencing the mission statements of projects or the company.
- This is a time of low physical energy, so we need to slow down to receive the optimal skill sets of this phase.
- Think about the bigger picture and the mission statements of projects, employers, and your life to see if they are in alignment.
- Make the big decisions – to change the direction of a project, to change jobs, to go for promotion, or leave a partnership – and to commit to something new.
- Reflect on tasks, focus on the real needs and on how to create the next step. It is the optimal time to let go of the emotional baggage of the previous month.
“Any woman can do any task at any time of the month do it well. But if a woman does a task during optima days in her cycle, she can excel” -Miranda Grey

The numerical codes printed on those sticky little fruit and vegetable labels can reveal a lot of information to us consumers.
Four-Digit Codes: Conventionally Grown Produce
These codes typically begin with a 3 or 4 and indicate that your fruit was grown conventionally, which includes the presence of pesticides, the pesticide levels are so low they aren’t harmful. Knowing how to properly wash produce also helps remove any residue as well as bacteria and germs.
How to Tell What Produce Is Genetically Modified
If the label’s code has five digits and begins with an 8, then the fruit or vegetable has been genetically modified (also known as GMOs, or genetically modified organisms). Twenty-six countries currently have strict restrictions on GMO produce (Poland and Italy signed on to ban Monsanto GMO corn in 2013).
Note that if you’re looking up information on the PLU code, do not include the first number of a 5-digit code—the first number is just an identifier for GMO products. For example, 4011 would be a standard yellow banana, but an 84011 would be a genetically modified standard yellow banana.
How to Tell What Produce Is Organic
Five-digit codes beginning with a 9 mean that the fruit is grown in accordance with USDA organic standards. It’s more expensive, but there’s a reason why: the USDA National Organic Program has many requirements that growers have to meet to get their food labelled “organic.”
How to Take Stickers Off Faster
I remove the stickers on my fruit by scratching at them, but if you want to avoid getting anything stuck under your fingernails or ruining the fruit, use this Scotch tape trick to get those suckers off in one piece. This can come in handy if you don’t want to bruise sensitive fruits, like peaches, nectarines, or apricots.

Menstruation is a sign of good health. Without menstruation there would be no human life. The female body does its monthly cyclical dance of fluctuating hormones, releasing an egg, building tissue, thickening the uterus and then menstruating. Menstruation takes place when the female body releases the uterine lining that was built up to possibly nourish a new life. Menstruation is a time of releasing and letting go in preparation to do the dance all over again.
Finding simple ways to acknowledge and celebrate the flow within your womb each month is a step toward honoring and loving your natural body cycles. When you love and care for your body, you experience your cycles from a more empowered context. Your monthly cycle becomes your ally, a guide to healing and balance.
In the grocery store, processed, packaged, and prepared foods occupy most of the shelf space and fresh, whole foods are in the minority. Ideally, your grocery cart—and day—will be exactly the opposite.
Keep in mind that the information on the front of the package is advertising. The manufacturer can’t say anything that’s untrue, of course. But they’re certainly going to put the best possible spin on things. They’re going to draw attention to the fact that the product is Organic! High in fiber! Gluten-free! You’re not going to see little star- bursts proclaiming Lots of preservatives! High in sodium! Fortified with synthetic vitamins to replace what got lost in processing! To get the whole story, you need to turn the package over and look for the ingredient list and Nutrition Facts label. The Ingredients Should Be Foods, Not Chemicals .
Start by scanning the ingredient list. Do you see ingredients you recognize as foods? Or does it read like the inventory of a chemistry lab?
•Natural flavors can mean anything! The food industry uses them to replace real food which tricks your taste buds.
•Artificial sweeteners make us crave more than we should, and can be found in foods you’d never expect like yogurt.
•Hidden MSG creates an irresistibility about food that makes us eat more than we should. Ever wonder why you can’t stop at one chip? Hidden MSG is why.
