Hello Menopause Goddesses. Sorry for the radio silence but I’ve been traveling for the first time in 2.5 years – and wow. Just wow.
Seeing friends, kids, and grandkids has just been rejuvenating. No, the pandemic isn’t over but I still feel like I’ve been freed from confinement.
Menopause and quarantine do not go together well, so stop a moment and congratulate yourselves on coming through this challenging time as well as you have.
I want to reiterate that EVERYTHING menopausal is addressed here on the blog – just put the topic of interest in the Search box and every post about that will show up. We’ve been doing this for over 15 years, so there is a treasure trove of info and commiseration. Topics like “hot flashes”, “vaginal dryness”, “anxiety”, “mental changes” and of course “remedies”.
Of course, as new information becomes available, I will be posting it here – but don’t forget to check out our Facebook page – where new info will be posted and an opportunity exists to connect with other menopause goddesses.
Have a joyous Summer Solstice – practice self-care (if we keep practicing it, maybe we’ll actually get good at it!). Massage, bubble bath, reading a good book, or just daydreaming are excellent starts. I’ve begun reframing my walking exercise as a “wander” which sounds so much more nurturing than work-out. Yesterday, I took a forest bath – just walking through the trees. The Japanese call this shinrin-yoku -it’s become popular to “bathe” in the forest for physical and psychological health. I can report that it was wonderful and I will be doing much more of it. Maybe I’ll see you there!
I agree the walking through the woods calms my soul even just walking always makes me feel so much better and grounded
Where is the search box… I’ve been searching but cannot see it
