Menopause and midlife can be an exciting new stage in your life. Many women have found that it gives them new freedom to express who they are and to make more empowered decisions about their lives. It’s also a time to reflect on where you’ve come from and where you want to go. What can help with this process is support from other women and access to information and development of habits that nurture and energize your body as it changes gears.
For most women, menopause comes on gradually over a period of several years, for some over a decade. The earliest stage is called perimenopause which is the period your body is preparing for menopause. Perimenopause usually starts when a woman is between the ages of 42-45.
Perimenopause and menopause are often not talked about and I believe this results in lack of preparation and often a shock when it finally hits. This guide is a short and sweet introduction to what can really help.
It’s been said that at the age of 20, we have the health and appearance we inherited: at age 50 and beyond our face and body is our creation depending on how we look after ourselves. It’s time to create from here!
