In a way women are ‘lucky’

They have a natural mechanism to face up to the issues that are important to them.

"When marrying, ask yourself this question: Do you believe that you will be able to converse well with this person into your old age? Everything else in marriage is transitory."
Friedrich Nietzsche
Restless week is when this process begins. She’s not necessarily looking for trouble.
If your woman is becoming grumpy and irritable about you, don't blow off what she says as being 'stupid'. 

What she is doing, is raising the issues she’s concerned about, for example; you don't give her enough attention, you drink too much, your always tired and stressed out... and so on.

Use Restless week as a way to gain insight into what's really going on for you. Get in touch with why she might feel annoyed or unhappy with the state of your relationship.
Listen to her and take on board what she says. 

You'll find that some of her doubts, insecurities and concerns about you, offer you some truth about yourself, from someone who loves and cares about you.

These insights can go a long way to make you a better person and to improve your relationship.
Tip 1: To be forewarned is to be forearmed. Make sure you make a note in your diary, calendar or phone, that you can expect to see the first signs of Volcano week, in about 18 days from today.
Tip #2: Be gentle and be kind. Don't start going on about what she did or said in Volcano week. If necessary, the time to process this with your partner is next week, in Love Week, when she's receptive.

Perhaps you've noticed that over the last 2 weeks, your partner's emotions have been volatile. You might also have noticed that she has been suffering from some physical discomfort. So now, in Relief Week, she needs to rest up and look after herself.
Tip #3: Offer to do something domestic for her: Go to the shops, cook dinner, wash up, bathe the kids and put them to bed. Do something that will lighten her load this week, even if it’s going to be inconvenient or not much fun for you.

When Volcano week comes around again, gestures like this will go a long way in showing her that you are indeed her partner and best friend and not what she may accuse you of being, when she’s under the influence of PMS in Volcano week.

To your happy life with a happy wife,

Gary P. Simmons
