In the luteal phase, your inner fall, PMS symptoms can increase. Energy drops and your body prepares for your period. The increase in progesterone makes you calmer and more introverted. Time to analyze and calm down. Light exercises like yoga, Pilates or going for walks can help you with this. Did you know that we have an increased metabolism during this phase? If you exercise too much, the stress hormone cortisol is released, which can lead to a tendency to gain weight. Before and during menstruation there is also an increased risk of sports injuries.
Shortly before or with your period, the inner winter begins. Your hormone levels are at their lowest at this time, and your energy levels aren't high either. You may feel withdrawn, uncommunicative, and tired. Be yourself and take time to reflect. Treat yourself to rest and everything that is good for you.
Therefore, relaxation and recreation are the order of the day, if possible. Try to fully focus on your regeneration - preferably with Pilates, yoga and stretching or with a complete break from sports.
