Not Your Mother’s Menopause

Not Your Mother’s Menopause

Your hormones control so much. Now you can control them.

Today we’re sharing how you can help manage perimenopause symptoms with lifestyle behaviors! It’s important to remember that menopause is a natural process and can be a very exciting transition.

However, it often comes along with frustrating symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, poor memory, loss of focus, insomnia, mood changes, and weight gain. Thankfully, there are things YOU can do in your day-to-day life to help manage them and feel like the best version of yourself.

Stress Management

It’s critical to actively manage stress, as stress has been shown to increase perimenopause symptoms. Lowering stress levels can decrease hot flashes and improve insomnia and mood. Activities that reduce stress include meditation, yoga, journaling, acupuncture, and massage. Choose one of these activities and start incorporating it into your daily routine. Just 5 minutes a day of deep breathing can make a world of a difference.


Regular movement helps reduce stress, improve mood, improve cognition and focus, prevent hot flashes, and can help with weight management. The best type of exercise for you is the type you enjoy… so that you’ll actually do it! If you hate HIIT, try yoga. Dread spinning? Try a dance class. Find a way that you love to move and aim to do it 5 times a week!

Avoid Hot Flash Triggers

Certain foods and lifestyle triggers worsen hot flashes such as hot drinks, spicy foods, alcohol, caffeine, excess stress, and cigarettes. Therefore, decreasing your coffee or caffeine intake will probably help. Don’t shoot the messenger! We’re not saying to never have coffee again, as we’re here to support you, not anger you ;). Simply notice if it does increase your symptoms. If so, try switching coffee out for a lower caffeine drink like Matcha green tea.

Top Up Tonic
