Watch this video and discover some effective self-care ideas to reduce menopause anxiety. Your body needs more support during the hormonal changes that occur at this time of your life. This clip is from my online programme 'In Tune With Menopause.' You will hear some references to other parts of the programme, but don't let this distract you from the importance of self-care as a way to reduce the severity of peri/menopausal symptoms and anxiety.
If it feels like an uphill battle to make healthier and more self-caring lifestyle choices, it may be because you are using discipline alone. Discipline alone won't necessarily change the energy or intention of the changes you would like to see in your life. Changing your diet, meditating and exercising, are all fabulous when they come from a deep connection to yourself that inspires self-love.
We live in a society that is accustomed to quick fixes and relief strategies, but real change needs a shift in your mindset. So to reduce menopause anxiety and increase the levels of joy that you experience, your self-awareness needs to develop. When you are honest and observant, you can discard what doesn't support you, and adopt lifestyle choices that do.
The old adage of putting the oxygen mask on yourself first is so, so true! Especially when the kids are having problems, your partner is ill or you're running a business, organising an event, and getting bills paid. The love you give to yourself, you are giving to others. Love is spherical and expands the more focus there is on it. Self-care is the first step in creating a life of expansive love in expression.
