Fatigue & Menopause

Fatigue is one of the symptoms of menopause.  It can affect us physically or mentally.  I went through a period of feeling extremely sluggish and got some wonderful advice from my gynecologist that I’d like to share with you:

1)  Learn to control stress:  Use relaxation therapies like meditation, yoga and tai chi.  They are considered to be effective stress-reduction techniques.

2)  Lighten your load:  Prioritize a list of “must do” activities and cut down on the less important tasks.

3)  Exercise:  Exercise is key.  It causes your body to release hormones that can make you feel energized but it also helps you sleep more soundly.

4)  Eat for energy:  Small meals or snacks every few hours can reduce your perception of fatigue by ensuring a stre! says there are things you canBut sometimes, fatigue can mean soeady supply of nurtients to the brain.

5)  Enjoy the outdoors:  Gardening, hiking or walks can help restore your body and soul.

By boosting your energy naturally, you can help cut down on the fatigue syndrome you may be experiencing and enjoy your menopause!

  1. These are all correct. Rest is important, too. As we age, our body needs time to repair after exercise. Work out most days, but take one or two days of rest per week.
