6 Lifestyle Strategies To Feel Your Best During Peri-Menopause

Peri-Menopause and Menopause can make you wonder if your body is going crazy. But what many women don’t realize is that they do have some control over these symptoms. 

An exercise routine, along with a nutritious diet, can help in controlling these awful symptoms. 

Some symptoms you may or may not experience are:

Bladder:

Due to lower estrogen levels, you will not be able to hold your urine for long periods. You may have to pee more often, get more bladder infections, and have trouble controlling your bladder as pelvic muscles weaken due to aging.

What can help:

  • Exercises from a pelvic physiotherapist to rehabilitate and prevent stress incontinence (when physical stress — such as coughing, sneezing, or laughing — causes an involuntary loss of urine)

Do burpees make you dizzy?

Burpees are a whole-body exercise that requires you to go from a standing position to a plank position, all while doing the changes with a jump and a squat.

As with any exercise, I tell my clients that if they feel dizzy, they should look for the source of their dizziness and why this happens. And immediately find a substitution exercise. The purpose of any training is to improve weight, performance, speed, and if there is a specific exercise that hurts or makes them feel sick or dizzy, they should always find a substitution or regression. If at any point, there is some continued discomfort or pain that progresses or goes beyond a few classes, then it’s vital to get it checked with a doctor to find out the source of the pain.

A lot of clients have mentioned that they become dizzy while doing a burpee, and I find this is more common than they realize.

Reasons why you could be feeling dizzy:

  1. Age and Menopause: As we grow older, specifically between the age of 40-60, we begin...

If you feel stuck in your weight, this article is for you. 9 main hormones are controlling your weight. I'm not going to go all sciency on you, but you should know that these hormones can make you feel weird during peri-menopause. Either help you gain or lose weight. Research shows that hormones can influence your appetite and weight. So, I'm going to explain simple natural fixes you can do to control your hormones and lose weight.

A lot of women feel depressed and go around their daily life with low self-esteem because they can't control gaining weight. Even when they think they're doing the right thing, the weight keeps coming. This weight gain affects their mood- because they're always feeling anxious and stressed about it- and end up being easily triggered by the people closest to them. Their attitude ends up affecting their relationship with family, partners, and work colleagues.

At some point, they might even throw the towel and give up. Start telling themselves, "I don't...

4 Strategies To Help Overcome Emotional Eating

We're living in a new binging culture. Most of us are guilty of enjoying one too many Netflix marathons and weekend shopping sprees. The same applies to our relationship with food. We can easily give ourselves another reason to have a second slice of cake. Maybe it's cold outside? A long day at work? Some bad news? Overindulging on food in these instances is a common behavior, but there are ways we can kick this habit into touch.

 

Emotional, environmental and physical triggers
