Menopause Doesn't Have to be Miserable!

When I was 50 years old I started getting hot flashes and nite sweats. I had trouble sleeping, and I’d never had trouble sleeping before. The hot flashes would come and go and were annoying. With disrupted sleep, I was tired the next day, so I needed to sleep in and I had to skip my workouts. Skipping my workouts left me very frustrated.

 

However, menopause doesn’t have to be horrific and mine really isn’t. It was mostly annoying the first year. Overall my experience with menopause has been mostly good. About a year into menopause I discovered Black Cohosh and that has helped me a lot with reduced hot flashes and nite sweats. I take 2 of the recommended 3 daily, as I’m smaller. I take one herb with lunch and one with dinner. I like that Black Cohosh is natural and vegan too.

 

Many ladies struggle with menopause, but I feel there’s too much negativity around menopause. The hot flashes and nite sweats don’t have to be horrible. You don’t have to gain weight or suffer from low energy. There are natural parts of the menopause experience that we need to accept, but constantly complaining doesn’t help. However, that’s what most women do. They complain. There are tons of Facebook groups for menopause and women complain all day long. It’s super negative. What can help first and foremost is a shift in mindset!

 

I turned 53 years old on November 11, 2020 and I’m in the best shape of my life, have tons of energy, my hair is thicker than ever, my skin is nice, and I’m in full menopause. If I can feel amazing so can you!

Healthy & Happy Employees in the Workplace

Healthy employees are happier employees who use less sick time, are more productive, and have more energy. This translates to happy managers who spend less money on company health insurance, experience less turnover, and gain increased job performance from their employees.

 

Let me inspire your employees to become healthier, happier and more energetic!

Regardless of whether we think we know what to do or not in order to get healthier, we're not doing it. At your company or during your company retreat, I can educate your employees about the importance of proper nutrition and consistent exercise. Let's discuss how a one hour informational meeting including Q&A can benefit your employees' health and mindset, where I speak about a particular nutrition, exercise, or mindset topic.
