Five Steps to Find Balance through Perimenopause and Menopause

Navigating through perimenopause, can be a challenging time for many women during this transitional phase in our lives. Here are five tips to help you maintain balance during this period:

  • Prioritise Holistic Self-Care: Practices that address your physical, emotional, and mental well-being. Incorporate regular exercise, mindful activities like yoga or meditation or Tai Chi for example, and ensure you are getting enough restful sleep. Taking care of your overall health can help mitigate some of the symptoms associated with perimenopause.  Make yourself the priority. So often women negate their needs for the sake of others.  This is a time to put yourself first! Nourish, nurture and support are essential at this time of our life.

  • Nutritious Diet: Pay attention to your diet by including a variety of nutrient-rich foods and definitely cut out any kind of processed foods. Reduce stimulating  foods and drinks such as alcohol, caffeine and sometimes hot spicy foods and high in sugar foods.  Especially as our bodies are trying hard to balance sugar levels during this time, as well as our livers working hard to metabolise fluctuating hormones. .  There are some fabulous herbal and fruit teas which are good for balancing your internal chemistry.  Pukka Herbs do a great range and when I went through the menopause I personally love the Woman Kind tea as it helped calm my anxious feelings.  Staying hydrated is also essential.   

  • Hormone Balancing Activities: Engage in activities that can help balance hormones naturally. Regular exercise, (but not to push beyond your limits, which will have a negative impact on adrenal stress) has been shown to alleviate symptoms like mood swings and hot flashes. Getting out in the fresh air on a daily basis, helps to stabilise hormone fluctuations, bring fresh life energy to the cells of your body and keeps your energy  moving.  Fresh air will bring a natural glow to your skin and uplift your mood.  When you are feeling out of sorts nature has a way of grounding and balancing your state of mind.  

  • Emotional Support: Seek emotional support from friends, family, or a polarity therapist. The hormonal fluctuations during perimenopause can sometimes lead to mood swings and emotional challenges. Having a supportive network can provide understanding and comfort during these times. We can feel out of control at this time, so finding a support community is extremely helpful. 

  • Professional Guidance: Whether it is a natural solution you are looking for or a more medical approach, it is worth trusting in your feeling about how you want to support yourself during this time.  If the natural way resonates with you, then follow your truth.  Polarity therapy and Naturopathic nutrition can be a great support in dealing with this time in life.  Myself Jane Deacon, a Polarity Therapy Teacher and Shamanic Healer and Rhi Hepple and Naturopathic Nutritionist run regular retreat days, delving into the perimenopause and how you can help yourself naturally.   Alternatively, if you have a good relationship with your doctor and prefer a more allopathic route then again, trust your gut instinct. 

Remember, perimenopause is a natural part of a woman’s life, and finding balance may involve a combination of lifestyle adjustments and adapting your way of being in the world.  It is a time of empowerment and coming into your own.  Having been through it, I understand, which is why I love to help woman through this time of life.
