Navigating the Emotional Effects of Menopause

Going through menopause is a difficult time for every woman. Some feel as though they are losing their youth, along with gaining the many unpleasant side effects that come along with menopause. But there are some tried and true things you can try to help you fight the menopause blues and end up happily on the other side.

Take Time For Yourself

You have spent years tending to other people’s needs and wants; now take some time for yourself. Whether you enjoy reading, writing, running, kayaking, shopping or a spa getaway, make it happen. It can be a big weekend or something you promise you will do for yourself every day. You have to make time for yourself to reflect on your life and allow yourself to accept the change that is happening. If you don’t gradually accept these changes, it is possible that it will hit you all at once and you will find yourself more depressed and frustrated.

Talk to Your Friends

Who better to discuss menopause with than someone who is going through the exact same thing? It is more likely than not that a majority of your friends are going through the same thing you are, and would relish the idea of being about to talk to someone too. Go grab a chai tea, sit down and vent to each other.

No-one else will be able to help you through this time in your life better than a good friend with first-hand knowledge. Now, you don’t need to get all graphic about the details of your menopause, but sharing your feelings about it will help you accept it.

Eat Healthy and Exercise

It is proven that exercising produces endorphins that boost your energy and mood. It is so easy, just put on a pair of tennis shoes and go for a walk or a jog. Take up yoga, Pilates, water aerobics or zumba. All of these exercises will help you beat menopausal depression while shrinking your waistline.
