  • Real talk: you need to continuously invest in your menstrual health ❤️
    .
    I worry a bit about the emphasis social media places on “quick-fixes”, “transformative” exercise programmes, and “super” foods that promise to change your life with one golden bullet. It’s important to remember that nothing actually works that way ☝️
    .
    I want to offer myself up as a real-world example. I know a lot about periods. I have read extensively around women’s health and I know how I need to eat, move and care for my body to be in good menstrual health. I use this platform to share that information with you because I believe passionately in democratising this knowledge so that more women are empowered to understand how their bodies work and know how to take proper care of themselves 💪
    .
    But even I need to focus on my menstrual health. As with all things, periods aren’t something you “crack” once and can then forget about. Shortly after I came off hormonal birth control, I was diagnosed with stress-induced secondary amenorrhea. My periods stopped for six months, I gained weight, lost hair and felt the worst I had ever felt in myself. That experience taught me just how susceptible my cycle was to stress and I vowed to take better care of myself so that I never had to go through it again. Up until now, I’ve been successful 🙏
    .
    This month, my period has gone AWOL and I’m not surprised a bit. I’ve recently quit my job, moved to another country and battled with illnesses. The point is, menstrual health isn’t something you are either blessed with or you aren’t: it’s something you have to work at day-in-day-out, no matter who you are or how much you know 💡
    .
    I believe passionately in the need for a more honest conversation around menstrual health and that includes being open about my own experiences. So here’s a #nofilter photo of me, smiling on the outside but miserable on the inside on day 60-something of my cycle. My body is telling me to take better care of myself and I‘ve learnt from experience that I have to listen! 🙋‍♀️
