The reality is that our menstrual cycle is extremely powerful and does impact the way we feel from one day to the next. It’s also true that we have heightened strengths during every phase of our cycle. Unfortunately, most of us don’t know about the intricacies of our cycle and how to really capitalize on these strengths because from the time we hit puberty we’re given very little information about it. Why? Because there is a long-standing and deeply-rooted taboo around the subject of menstruation. 

What would you change if you knew how your life would unfold?

Would you eat healthier? Exercise more? Would you take better care of your teeth? Maybe you would get up the nerve to ask out the cute guy in your French class. Or maybe you would wisely say “no” when the cute guy at the gym asked you. I definitely wish five year-old me would have known how much adult me would love taking naps. Children do not appreciate the delicious respite a nap provides.

Right now, you’re enjoying your time with just you and your spouse. You feel free, in love, and like you have all the time in the world.

But when you’re just a few years away from having kids, that time can pass by quickly, and suddenly you have to give all your attention to the little rug rats (and I use that term in a good way).

It's not funny, cute, or a compliment... and I definitely don't want to have to deal with it.

The Truth About Catcalling

Last Wednesday night, I had just gotten off work and I was tired, hungry, and only had a quarter tank of gas left. I pulled off at my regular gas station and was making my way to the cash register when I noticed an older man standing right in my way. We did that awkward dance-around-each-other thing, and I smiled and said, "Excuse me". He moved out of my way, and then when I was a few paces ahead of him, he called out to me,

I grew up with an older brother that not only defied them but created them. It seemed like everywhere I looked he was kissing and dating some of the cutest girls I could ever imagine. To this day he is the most natural and genuine guy I ever seen with girls and people in general. I wasn’t sure then what made him such an Achilles heel to people’s heart.

Things Men Need To Stop Doing To The Women They Love

It’s International Women’s Day today and it’s a day that is usually spent celebrating womanhood—in all its forms. But, as women, we submit too much—to society, customs, circumstances and men. We do it too much. Yes, feminism is on the rise and so is a growing awareness that women are powerful and deserve respect.

Acai 
This dark Brazilian superberry is found to have one of the highest antioxidant levels of any fruit in the world.   Dark colored berries have been known for their health benefits because of their Anthocynins (Vascular pigments) which give the acai its color.  These belong to a group of molecules called flavonoids.  Well, twelve additional flavonoids were found according to the Portuguese book “Açaí: Preparo, Composição e Melhoramento de Conservação” (Schauss et al. 2006a).  It also contains a rich amount of phytosterol which may reduce blood cholesterol.  In a 2006 University of Florida study, the Acai berry destroyed cultured human cancer cells.  Acai is increasing in popularity and can now be found in smoothies, juices, and other products.  But in order to get the most from the berry, it is best to buy a product that has been freeze-dried and prepared naturally.

A fun game you can play with women everywhere

I tried this one out yesterday with a girl I had just met in the airport. We we’re both standing in line for something service-related, and she looked really bored, so I stepped over to her and started talking.

She was really cute; South American look, long curly hair, amazing eyes, in her young twenties. And as I said, she looked really bored, so I asked her if she wanted to play a game.
