What does menopause mean to you? The answer to this question may have a lot to do with how you experience the next 30 years. Some view it as a negative; getting older; being less attractive; coping with more health issues.
For others, however, it’s a new adventure; a time for using your wisdom, knowledge and experience to enjoy new experiences and be happy; A time to travel without taking care of kids; a time to enjoy sexual freedom with no worry of getting pregnant; an opportunity to spend more time with friends and family.
In essence, menopause means different things to different people. And to some extent, how you view it may have the most impact on what becomes your reality. The best chance you have for making it a positive experience is to get smart about menopause. The more you learn and understand, the easier it will be to make good choices for your body, mind and spirit.
Since up to 85% of primary care visits are stress related and because so many of the chronic illnesses such as heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity and even some cancers are preventable – or at least controllable – the more you choose healthy habits, the easier it is to stay well.
