From Follicular to Ovulatory: Energizing Your Transition with Nature and Nutrition

From Follicular to Ovulatory: Energizing Your Transition with Nature and Nutrition


As we bid farewell to the introspective and grounding energy of the follicular phase, we welcome the transition into the vibrant and fertile energy of the upcoming ovulatory phase. This transition is a powerful time for self-discovery, creativity, and connection with others. A great time to plan ahead and capitalize on the ovulatory phase. 


Transitioning Out of Follicular Phase

During the follicular phase, your body prepares for ovulation by nurturing a dominant follicle in the ovary. As estrogen levels rise, you may experience increased energy, creativity, and a sense of renewal. The transition from the follicular phase to the ovulatory phase marks the peak of estrogen production and the release of an egg for potential fertilization. You can support your system by focusing on:

  1. Movement: Engage in activities that honor your body's energy levels. During this phase, you may feel more energized and vibrant. Embrace activities like dance, yoga, or outdoor walks to celebrate your body's strength and vitality.
  2. Nourishment: Prioritize nourishing foods that support hormone balance and energy levels. Include plenty of leafy greens, lean proteins, and healthy fats in your diet. Consider incorporating foods rich in magnesium, such as nuts, seeds, and dark chocolate, to support muscle relaxation and mood stability.
  3. Creativity: Channel your creative energy into artistic endeavors or personal projects. Whether it's painting, writing, or crafting, tapping into your creativity during this phase can be incredibly fulfilling and empowering.

A Ritual of Self-Care: Follicular Phase - Connect to Nature 

  • This is a great time to get outside and spend some time in nature if you can. Getting fresh air and grounding outside is so supportive of our systems during this transition. Find a place to sit and just listen and absorb the sights and sounds around you. 
  • Buy yourself some flowers or a new plant. Adding these fresh and alive pieces to your environment helps to stimulate the body and mind and refresh the energy of your space, really connecting body, mind, and soul to the phase you're in.
  • Grab your favorite  beverage and go sit by a body of water. The very practice of sitting next to water will bring clarity and calm that aligns with the renewal of this phase. 
  • Go for a hike or a trail run. Getting your heart rate up combined with deep rhythmic breathing among the trees is incredibly invigorating and restorative at the same time. 


Let the Goddess in you rise and shine.
