#9 How knowing your chronotype and cycle can increase your productivity with Sarah from @zenlyorganized
In today’s episode, I’m welcoming Sarah from @zenlyorganized. Sarah is a productivity coach who helps women entrepreneurs be more productive based on their chronotype and menstrual cycles.
In this episode, Sarah explodes 3 myths about productivity to help us stop feeling like a failure, avoid burnout and adapt how we work based on our own rhythm and the energy available to us.
There is a strong belief that our productivity is linear, while it’s not. Whether you’re an entrepreneur or an employee, it’s tempting to be always productive and doing doing doing.
We forget that resting is an important component too. Just like in nature, with the seasons or even with machines. We need to slow down and rest at times to recharge our battery and prepare for the next action phase.
Everybody is different and everyone has their own rhythm. Whether you are an early bird or a night owl, your internal clock, your circadian rhythm, has an impact on your sleep pattern, your eating habits, and even, your productivity.
There are 4 different chronotypes (bear, wolf, lion and dolphin) and knowing which category you fall under can help you adapt your schedule to improve your productivity in a way that it flows and that is natural to you.
For example, if you've tried the Miracle Morning method (which consists of waking up one hour earlier to get things done) and it didn't work for you, this doesn't mean that you're a failure. It just means that you're not a morning person!
The same goes for the menstrual cycle. Each phase gives us certain energy to either do things or rest. Both are necessary and go hand in hand.
Once we know ourselves and accept what works best for us, we stop forcing things, but most importantly: we stop feeling inadequate and accept who we are; accept how we function. And that's quite liberating!
That being said, nobody is standard and you can choose what works for you.
In the end, it’s about adapting the method to ourselves rather than adapting ourselves to the method.
Take care 😘
