How-To: Turning Menopause into Something Positive

Transitioning to menopause can be a time of inspiration and reflection. Transitions of any kind can be difficult, but many women can experience a newfound sense of personal growth and freedom during the transition to menopause.

 

IT’S ALL ABOUT ATTITUDE

Your attitude during this transition can have a great impact on your whole experience, as well as on your choice of behaviours. Studies show that negative beliefs that are held prior to menopause can be predictive of a more challenging time. For example, the more negative your thoughts are on hot flashes, the more intense they will be. During menopause, depression is not uncommon.

 

More recently, studies have also shown that changing those negative attitudes and thoughts can result in reduced symptoms.

 

THINK HAPPY THOUGHTS

The absence of positive thoughts brings upon a greater negative impact on our health, as well as our well-being than it does with the presence of negative ones. You can keep an “appreciation journal” to cultivate your positive thoughts and emotions.

 

LAUGHTER IS THE BEST MEDICINE

Laughter can bring us closer to people and it can move us into more positive mindsets. It can also stimulate our immune system, as well as enhance our memory and learning. Laughter also helps us cope better with the stressors in our lives; thus, laughter is a great help during menopause.

 

“ME-TIME”

During menopause, it is important to exercise, eat right, and have relaxation techniques into your day. By doing so, you can move yourself out of the stress response. Having a “relaxation response” quiets the mind, increases muscle relaxation, and promotes positivity in learning, emotions, concentration, and creativity. Once you have time for yourself, it can also help reducing symptoms such as insomnia, hot flashes, discomfort, and pain.

 

BE CONNECTED

When going through life in general, social support plays a major role in terms of health, and it can help you live longer.

 

BE IN THE MOMENT

In each and every moment of your life, you should try to be mindful – present and aware. Once you do this, you prevent yourself from worrying about the future or dwelling on the past. By combining positive thoughts, relaxation techniques, and a healthy lifestyle, many women are changing the menopause experience.”
