In 2009 Miranda wrote The Optimized Woman - a practical approach for women who wanted to create wellbeing, achieve their goals and dreams, and find success at work in a uniquely female way. The book was a response to all the self-development books, the ‘create your dreams’ books, and all the business and work success and coaching approaches that totally ignore the emotional, physical and mental implications of the menstrual cycle!
Miranda's interest grew when she realized that a coaching personality analysis that she took had a different result when taken in the pre-menstrual phase. It's often forgotten that just because women can work as well as men, it doesn't mean that we are the same as men!
There is one particularly powerful influence on women’s lives which is often overlooked or suppressed in the worlds of business, fulfilment and success - the menstrual cycle. Forever regarded as a negative influence on our lives it is in actual fact a powerful tool that we can productively use to create happiness and fulfilment in all areas of our lives – yes, even during the pre-menstrual phase. Our cycles bring us the wonderful opportunity of ‘optimized times’ - days in our month when we can do things better and also have access to talents and skills we never knew we had.
When we adjust our thinking, look for our cyclic energies, and plan to meet our needs and best use our talents, something amazing happens –we create happiness and wellbeing. We find success, meet our work goals and live our life dreams.
Miranda is a passionate advocate for changing the way women view their menstrual cycles. Her drive is towards encouraging women to create a personal work practise that embraces not ignores their cyclic nature and energies, actively planning for and utilising optimized skills when they occur.
