4 Daily Rituals for your Moon Days
Keeping consistent self-care rituals and practices is the best way to stay balanced and feel better during your menstrual cycle. When menstruating our hormones are at their lowest and with them often falls our energy levels and mood. Add cramps or dysmenorrhea to the mix and it’s clear that these days require a little more effort to feel aligned and able to take on the day.
Your Moon Days may very well be the most important days to make sure all your self-care practices are in effect. Proper food, sleep, and body movement, as well as the right supplements and support, can really change the game when it comes to making it through your period. Need some inspiration to create an aligned day of rituals for ultimate period support? We’ve got you covered.

Eating can effortlessly become a ritual when we infuse intention into what we’re eating and the nutrition it is providing our body. Try to make time to eat slowly so your body can soak up all the nutrients. Water-rich fruits and vegetables like watermelon, cucumber, and zucchini, are a great way to stay hydrated while also eating light if you are prone to an upset stomach during your period. It’s also important to consume protein, iron, and magnesium-rich foods like quinoa, lentils, beans, and nuts.

Restorative or Yin-Yoga is the perfect practice during your period. Yin is a slow form of yoga that often uses props to support the body and relieve tension and strain. While doing a more intense workout may not be the best for your body during this time, it is still important to move your body.

There is also a variety of classes catered to Yin on your period online and on YouTube.
