Season 2 Episode 10: Stress in 2020 and Why You Need to Tune Into Your Cycle

Take a moment and reflect on the year of 2020. 

Sidenote. It’s already November 3rd!

Did you get all of the projects completed that you wanted to?  Make all of the moves you planned to? Start that new workout routine, begin to eat healthier, and find extra time in the day to be with your friends and family? 


Let’s be honest, the answer is probably “no.” 

And you are not alone in that. 

In today’s episode we slow down and talk about the stress of 2020 and how, as a female, this affects your body. And we need to be aware of this! 

Join me and Dr. Sarah Vadeboncoeur as we dive into how the stress of 2020 is affecting your hormones, your sex drive and so many other systems in your body.
