Menopause can be such a rollercoaster. We’ll be doing just fine then – BAM! – it can feel like we’re losing our minds.
It’s easy to get angry about our hormones and the havoc they’re wreaking. To resent the changes that are happening in our bodies, try to ignore them or wish they weren’t there. But all this does is make us more stressed – and that makes our symptoms even worse.
The good thing is, we’re not alone. Women are no longer suffering through their menopause in silence. Thankfully, the landscape’s changing. We’re now opening up, sharing and learning from each other’s experiences.
And one of the most exciting things we’re learning is how mindfulness can help to alleviate menopause symptoms.
Making peace with your symptoms
Mindfulness is the perfect way to navigate your menopause.
It teaches you to calmly observe how you’re thinking and feeling in a non-judgemental way. By becoming more aware of your symptoms, you can allow yourself to accept them rather than wasting precious energy wishing things were different.
With practice, you become able to ‘befriend’ your symptoms, learning how to experience them in the present moment. And this makes them far less stressful.
While mindfulness can’t cure your symptoms, it can significantly reduce them. It gives you valuable tools to cope with insomnia, anxiety and any hot flushes/flashes as they’re happening.
A helping hand through your menopause
We know what you’re going through is hard. But we’re so delighted that you’re here because we genuinely believe that mindfulness will make a difference for you.
What is mindfulness? Mindfulness is really just stopping what you’re doing and becoming aware of what’s going on with you in the present moment. It’s as simple as that.
Mindfulness is about paying attention to your breathing and the sensations in your body, such as the feeling of your hands resting on your legs or the way your feet are connecting with the floor.
It’s a type of meditation but don’t let that put you off. You don’t have to sit cross-legged on the floor for an hour. Even just 5 minutes spent ‘checking in’ with yourself can help you feel more connected, grounded and at peace with your feelings.
