Simple Strategies to Dismiss Stress!
It goes without saying… Perimenopause and Menopause can be very stressful periods in a woman’s life. However, did you know that stress itself is one of the leading cause’s of high blood pressure and cancer? Reducing our stress levels daily is necessary and possible by following some simple and straightforward strategies.
A FREE and EASY way to reduce stress on a daily basis during menopause is exercise. Get involved in a sport or activity that you find fun. Running, swimming, yoga or even dancing are good choices! Even simple physical activities like walking or stretching can make a huge difference. This is because exercise releases endorphins in your brain, which help melt away stress.
A well-balanced diet full of nutritional value is essential for fighting stress caused by Menopause. At a woman’s midlife, it’s of vital importance to eat a healthy, balanced diet and consume proper vitamins and minerals. Healthy nutrition will assist in the maintenance of strong bones, a healthy heart, banish menopausal weight gain, increase energy levels and improve our overall quality of life through good health. It’s important to note that Vitamin D and Magnesium are both essential, since they can help reduce the bone loss that occurs during Menopause.
If none of these day to day stress relief strategies work for you, then hormone replacement is a viable yet riskier alternative. Hormone replacement works by artificially replacing the hormone levels that naturally decrease during Menopause. However, a viable alternative to commercial HRT (artificial hormones) is bio –identical hormones, although you will need to consult a doctor privately to obtain these tailored to your own personal needs… (Please contact me for details on Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy).
