Four Weeks is a free, monthly online lifestyle magazine for women that introduces something new: it's the first magazine to be specifically tailored to each week of a woman's monthly hormone cycle.

This means we don't simply recommend the best undiscovered and essential food, products, DIY projects and travel destinations that help make a woman's life fuller, easier and more fun. We go one step further. We recommend only those foods, products, projects and places that a woman will enjoy and need most during each week of her monthly hormone cycle.

That's why Four Weeks magazine is made up of four mini-magazines. Each represents one of the four weeks of a woman's monthly hormone cycle and the distinct moods that her hormones have her feeling during those weeks. They are:

Week 1 theme: Fun and familiar
How Four Weeks syncs up with your cycle:
We make your Week 1 more fun!
How we do it:
During this week, rising estrogen makes you want to feel like a kid again. Yet, this hormone is still relatively low, which makes you prefer fun activities that are familiar. So, we give you all the latest and greatest ways to have this kind of reminiscent, light-hearted good time by bringing you delicious food recommendations and original recipes that remind you of Mom's kitchen, laughter-filled getaways, easy DIY craft projects, and shopping picks that will appeal to the kid in you.
Duration: Week 1 begins with the first day of your period, which is Day 1 of your monthly cycle, and lasts through Day 7.

Week 2 theme: Exciting and exotic
How Four Weeks syncs up with your cycle:
We fulfill your Week 2 desire to explore!
How we do it: During this week, peaking estrogen and testosterone have you craving excitement and new discoveries. So we bring you all the newest inventions and gadgets to try, exotic vacation spots to visit, surprising and unusual foods to sample and over-the-top shopping indulgences that are must-haves for any peaking hormoned gal. Since your high hormones put you in the mood to take over the world, we also introduce you to women who've done something amazing in their own life to help inspire you to go after your own dreams.
Duration: Week 2 begins with Day 8 of your cycle and lasts through Day 13 (or the day before ovulation).

Week 3 theme: Cautious and caring
How Four Weeks syncs up with your cycle:
We make you feel safe and give you ways to  nurture during your Week 3!
How we do it:
During Week 3, you're feeling more cautious and caring as progesterone, the nurturing and sedating hormone, rises, and estrogen and testosterone dip. That's why we recommend products and places that cater especially to you during this mellower week. You'll also find how-to advice for a bevy of DIY projects for improving all aspects of your life, including gussying up your home, improving your finances, having a closer relationship and making you and your family better protected. To fulfill this week's desire to both nurture and shop, we recommend products you'll love and which also help others when you purchase them.
Duration: Week 3 begins on Day 14 of your cycle (or ovulation) and lasts through Day 22. Here are easy ways to figure out when you ovulate.

Week 4 theme: Indulgent and introspective
How Four Weeks syncs up with your cycle:
We make you happier and more comfortable during your Week 4!
How we do it:
Plunging estrogen, testosterone and progesterone during this premenstrual week make you a tad more emotionally sensitive, increase your aches and pains and decrease your level of the feel-good brain chemical serotonin. As a result, you're in the mood to be indulged and are likely analyzing the challenges in your life. To help you feel happier during this serotonin-depleted and introspective week, we recommend foods which are guilt-free indulgences, but which are also proven to increase serotonin or endorphins, which boost mood
. We've also found the perfect items to ease the discomfort of these pain-sensitive days, and selected just the right pampering shopping gifts and getaways that any premenstrual woman would enjoy.
Duration:
Week 4 starts on Day 23 and lasts until the end of your cycle, which is the day before you get your period.
