Stewarding Progesterone with Emelie Pepito

Episode 73 marks the beginning of a four week segment on stewardship. Jennifer and Emelie start with the most basic stewardship, our hormones, specifically progesterone!* 

Progesterone is the hormone that prepares your body for pregnancy at the end of your cycle. When you have enough of it, you should feel calm and nurtured in the days running up to your cycle. But stress, crowded schedules, busy school loads, and trying to do everything can derail our progesterone production. 

Why does this matter? When we don't steward our hormones properly across our cycle, we start using cortisol and adrenals to function. This causes long term stress on our body, reducing our capacity to handle bigger life stressors that come our way because we have used everything up trying to over perform during the progesterone (Luteal Phase) of our cycle. 

Addressing this is about learning micro stewardship of our emotions and progesterone across the cycle.

Micro emotional stewardship is learning to connect with God in the middle of a emotion and ask: 

1. Is this feeling true or is it an emotion that's coming up and related to some old pain or lie about the goodness of God, the love of my husband, or God's sufficiency? (Memorise Psalm 23)

2. Is this feeling something physical–hormonal, exhaustion, poor diet choice, stress?

3. Is my reaction to this feeling going to bring connection or disconnection? 

Progesterone stewardship is learning to identify the foods and care your body needs in the last 10 days of your cycle. 

*None of this is medical advice, nor is it intended to be.
