“Men-o-pause” may be a funny play on words but it’s no laughing matter to millions of women. When hot flashes, mood swings and memory changes are affecting your life, you want help fast. But where can you find it when the “newest” science says the old science is wrong? Below are suggestions to help ease the discomfort of symptoms of meopause.
Limit alcohol consumption.
Daily exercise will help relieve stress, improve moods, and improve insulin function. Participate in a regular balanced exercise program that includes wearing a pedometer to ensure that you collect steps and move more. High intensity short bursts (20-60 seconds) of activity during the day is recommended to enhance growth hormone release. Also engage in resistance training that works all major muscle groups (work each group at least 2 times a week).
Practice good sleep habits and get between 8-9 hours of sleep a night.
Reduce stress levels and avoid extra obligations.
