If you’re of a younger age, you’ll be thinking what a strange title for a blog, and what on earth does the Covid-19 lockdown impact on the menopause?
On the other hand, if you’re older and showing symptoms or going through the menopause, you’ll immediately relate to this and hopefully feeling less alone.
The menopause can affect your mental health. Period!
Whilst it’s better that more people are now working from home, it’s easier to manage the menopause symptoms. We can feel more comfortable when having a hot flush, open a window when we like, take a shower at lunchtime and have a snooze when we would normally be on our commute home. So, you’d think it’s win-win, right?
The menopause is all about the hormonal changes we experience as we ladies get older. There are also many emotional changes. We worry about getting older, losing family, our children’s education, and worrying about our parents. Then throw into the mix the pandemic, being isolated, the constant bad news on the rising death toll, the Covid-19 vaccination, missing friends and family, home-schooling, the list goes on.
The changing hormone levels during the menopause may affect your emotional health, and negative thoughts may creep in, making you feel sad and tearful and hopeless. The rapid decrease in oestrogen may also affect your mood, and it’s possible to develop anxiety and depression.
We need to be kind to ourselves and recognise that some of the feelings we are experiencing will pass, and it might be useful to make some ‘menopause’ lifestyle changes that will have a positive effect.
Maybe try some or all of the following, to aid your menopause symptoms:
· Call your GP for a chat, see if there are any tests they can be doing to check your hormone levels and talk about your feelings
· Get adequate sleep
· Get out for a daily walk and get some fresh air too
· Fill the house or bedroom with lovely smells, try nice mixes of essential oils in a water diffuser
· Read magazines, books and have less screen time
· Eat more whole-foods, fruit, vegetables and whole grains, dairy and high-quality proteins
· Supplement your diet with a natural vitality supplement to give you an additional boost.
