Menopause is a tricky time for many of us. Do you recognize how your body functions, how it looks and how it feels?

It has been about 40 years since your body changed so dramatically and you have forgotten what it felt like. You are much more emotionally secure now, but questions arise, what will happen in a few years, what will I look like and how will my energy levels be?

Despair not, there are natural ways to help you travel through this important period of your life.

Menopause is a time where your hormone levels drop substantially. If you keep eating as much as what you have always done, you will put on weight as, with lower hormone levels, you burn off less of the fuel you feed your body.

To help our bodies to stay strong and healthy we need to look after it a little differently as we cannot take it for granted that it will remain the way we have become accustomed to.

Weight bearing exercises create stronger muscles and stronger bones. This helps to stay more mobile with a healthier body. And you wouldn’t be surprised to read that this leads to a more positive outlook on life as you are more mobile to participate in the activities you enjoy.

When we exercise it usually engages muscles from our neck to the ankles. Facial muscles though can also be exercised and, when stimulating all skin layers, the natural production of collagen and elastin is boosted. A win-win!
