How to Manage Menopause

As if women haven’t gone through enough already, menopause is the final battle that hits you when you least expect it. This major hormonal change brings along an array of frustrating symptoms that can leave you feeling emotional and physically ill. This phase of a woman's life has a pretty bad wrap. But there are many things you can do to help make this transformative time as smooth as possible. 

Some women experience little to no symptoms and others ride the waves of menopause and feel every single bump and ripple. But don’t lose hope! Many other women have experienced the exact same thing as you and there are also many ways you can support yourself during this time. Here are a few things you can do to help manage the frustrating symptoms of menopause.  

Relief From the Symptoms of Menopause 

Hot Sweats and Flushes 

If you’re experiencing hot flushes and night sweats, this means your body’s oestrogen levels are dropping. This is completely normal and shouldn’t be a cause for concern. However, there’s nothing worse than waking up in the middle of the night in a puddle of sweat. To combat this symptom, try the following: 

  • Avoid potential triggers such as caffeine, alcohol and stress 
  • Check with your GP that you aren’t on any medications that could be causing hot flushes 
  • Don’t over-exert yourself, you’re allowed to take it easy! 
  • Avoid long hot showers 

Emotional Symptoms 

Experiencing waves of vulnerability, teariness and depression is unfortunately a common menopausal symptom. Your fluctuating hormones can trigger an array of emotional responses. Becoming aware of the fact that you’re experiencing emotional symptoms is a great first step. You’re not going crazy; your body is going through changes and it’s normal to feel the effects of this. 

To ease emotional symptoms you can: 

  • Prioritise self-care 
  • Talk to female friends also experiencing menopause 
  • Speak with a counsellor 

There's nothing wrong with seeking additional help, in fact, it can actually be extremely beneficial. Speaking with a therapist or counsellor can help you find ways to manage your symptoms and better understand exactly why you’re feeling the way you do. 

Supplements to Ease Symptoms 

Luckily, there are many supplements that have been designed specifically to ease the symptoms of menopause. This is a simple way to support yourself each day and can have a drastic impact on your physical and emotional wellbeing.
