Your body changes when going through menopause. From hot flashes to incontinence, vaginal dryness and even spotting, your body is likely experiencing some level of discomfort. There are a variety of medicinal solutions that can help combat some of these symptoms, but you shouldn’t forget about all of the ancillary ways you can increase your overall comfort as you experience menopause, most notably being your underwear.
Whew. We can take a deep breath now. We made it through the holiday season. 2022 is a new year. A new start.
And if it feels like a reprise of the last couple of years? Omicron, zoom meetings, masks and sanitizer, uncertainty. It’s normal to feel fatigued by it all. I know I do. And I have a prescription for all of us. Be gentle with yourself.
’Tis the season. This Christmas/Hannukah and the holiday last year pegged the stress meter well into the red zone for most of us. So this holiday season, the most important gift is to yourself. Make a list of what might be enough – enough to make the season festive for you and yours without excess stress.
Right now, I want to alert you all that Beth Learn of Fit2B Studio is once again offering her free webinar: 5 Ways to Manage Your Moods and Hormones during Menopause. I participated in August and just loved it. Beth shares advice about dietary changes, overlooked fitness areas, the role of hormones in sleep, and the power of ‘having fun’ during menopause. (Fun? yes Fun!)
We sometimes focus on the difficult and alarming changes, for good reason. We want help and we want it now. But when the change tornado eases off to a gentle breeze, we find that there are positive changes.
The many wellness benefits of orgasm for women have been documented in recent studies. Regular orgasms lead to stress reduction, better sleep, a stronger pelvic floor, enhanced immunity, even improved cardiovascular health. Mystery Vibe devices are geared to facilitate sexual health and wellness at every life stage. Including menopause and the climacteric.
Sleep is literally the superfood that has the most impact. The true nectar of life. The super fuel you need. Frankly, this is where the magic happens.
With the decline of vital hormones during menopause, sleep disturbances are very common. With the vicious cycle of sleep deprivation and the load of stress, it can take much of the joy and ease out of transitioning into menopause.
I can’t say enough how much I recommend the Mastering Menopause Bundle. Loads of great stuff for those who are in perimenopause and menopause – but also for those who consider ourselves post-menopausal. Wonderful offerings to help us sleep better, nutrition tips, exercise options (like belly-dancing – how great is that?!)
The Mastering Menopause Bundle is available from Monday August 9 – Friday, August 13. It’s a ton of menopause (and peri and post-menopause) resources.
free webinar called 5 Ways to Manage Your Moods and Hormones during Menopause. The webinar is being offered at two times for your convenience: Thursday, August 5 at 11 am EDT and Friday Aug 6 at 7 pm EDT.
