Struggling with self-care? Feeling menopausal?

Posted on 8 February 2023

Did you know.. you shouldn’t ever have to suffer from PMS or (peri)menopause symptoms if your hormones are in balance. Yes, really. Self care isn’t selfish, it’s essential.

And back to the real world! Do any of these sound familiar?

  • 😫 My periods are irregular / painful & heavy
  • 😢 I’m teary, moody, spotty & have brain fog
  • 😖 I feel overwhelmed, stressed, anxious & burnt out
  • 😲 I’m struggling to sleep and I’m exhausted
  • 😣 I’m putting on weight / can’t shift my stubborn fat around my tummy
  • 🥵 I’m getting hot flushes and night sweats
  • 😔 I crave sugar and then have an energy slump

Hormonal health is an ongoing journey as women’s bodies undergo immense changes at each stage of life.
Unfortunately, when you hit your 40’s, your hormones can cause all kinds of symptoms if they aren’t in balance. Hormonal changes begin 10 years(!) before menopause, so you need to prepare for this change much earlier than you think.

There are many changes that you can make to you diet and lifestyle to improve your hormonal health, including:
– reducing stress (waaaaay easier written than done, I am fully aware!)
– Nourishing your gut. A healthy gut is essential for overall health and hormone balance.  
– Quality Sleep – the ultimate reset.
– Exercise – appropriate for your age /stage 
– Alcohol – you may find you have a reduced tolerance and it affects your sleep.
