Menopause will not get worse if you worry about it, but stress can aggravate the symptoms. Our bodies are complex systems with the stress hormones, the ovaries, the chemical systems, they all interrelate.

Hormones are just one of the things your body is coping with at perimenopause, and for some people, it becomes the straw that breaks the camel’s back.

Regular contact with nature, physical exercise, and yoga are all stress relievers. Some studies show that applied relaxation exercises, such as meditation and deep breathing, can decrease the number and intensity of hot flashes and mood-related symptoms.

Doing something you enjoy such as gardening, reading, cooking or walking, can be relaxing, as long as you do not force yourself to set a record or create a flawless result.

Planning ahead and setting goals can also be excellent tools for women at this stage in their lives. The women who are going to be healthiest as they move through live and probably have the most vibrancy and joy are ones who are going to take some responsibility for the direction of their life.

It is a good time to reflect on where you want to go. Women might need to learn a few more coping skill, but they can do it. It is having faith in yourself to come through the other side.
