How long does menopause last?

 

It’s a bit a difficult question to answer because it really is different for every woman.

 

Menopause is a time of a woman’s life when the ovaries no longer produce eggs and the production of ovarian hormones begins to drop off. This causes many different symptoms that ultimately result in the cessation of periods.

 

When a woman has had no periods for twelve consecutive months, it is said that menopause is over.

 

There are actually three phases of menopause during a natural menopause. These include the following:

 

  • Perimenopause. This is also referred to as the menopause transition. This period of time usually starts 8-10 years before actual menopause and is a time when the ovaries are gradually producing less of the hormones, estrogen, and progesterone. Perimenopause usually begins when a woman is in her 40s but can also begin when a woman is in her 30s. Perimenopause continues until the woman reaches menopause and no more eggs are made....

This one thing can change EVERYTHING during Menopause

Hi,

I Hope you are having a great weekend! I have a quick tip this morning that can power up your day FAST.

First thing in the morning, as soon as you wake up, drink a big glass of water … 8 to 16 ounces! 

Do this for two reasons:

  • Because it’s incredibly good for your body and (more below)
  • It has a powerful effect on your mindset that can extend throughout the day (keep reading!) 

Now, you already know the health benefits of water (my top 6 favs are below because they’re awesome enough to repeat).But the mindset benefit might be my favorite one.

A study in England found that doing ONE SMALL THING (like drinking a glass of water!) can set off a cascade effect that will help carve new habits for a lifetime!

 The study was aimed at helping healthcare workers provide better guidance to their patients in creating healthier lifestyles.

“Forming one ‘small’ healthy habit may thereby increase self-confidence for working towards other...

Decision Fatigue” is real from Susanne Your Menopause Coach

 Hi {first name}!

 The other day I sent you an email about how it takes a lot longer to form a healthy habit than we had been led to believe (three times longer, in fact!). 

I’ve got some more news for you when it comes to sticking with those healthy habits. 

Have you ever noticed how much harder it is to have willpower when you’re stressed or have had a long day, especially during menopause! It doesn’t have to be “bad” stress, either – your willpower can lag after an awesome day spent sightseeing, shopping or doing something else that you love.

 The reason this happens is because of something called “decision fatigue.”

Studies show that the more decisions you make over the course of a day, the harder it is to use your willpower or self control.  

For instance, after a long day you might not feel very energetic... and feel like skipping your workout. Saying “no” to junk food can also become...

Forget about big goals. Do this instead.

Hi,

This email is all about a very simple (but super powerful) philosophy in business that improves efficiency, creates steady long-term growth, and basically helps you to CRUSH your goals.

But the power of this philosophy goes way beyond business. It also can make a HUGE difference in living a better, healthier and a more fulfilled life.

 

It’s fueled by one simple principle:

 

Do 1 percent better every day.

You might have heard of kaizen before, which is the idea of doing 1% better every single day. It’s all about small, continuous improvements. When you add them all up, they lead to mind-blowing changes.

 

What’s even more amazing is that the changes created this way actually “stick.” That’s because they didn’t require any major lifestyle overhauls. Instead, they were built up over a period of time, which means you learn to MANAGE and MAINTAIN them along the way.

 

And that’s EXACTLY WHAT YOU WANT!

The REAL # of days it takes to create a habit during menopause, when we try to be "good " and not put any weight on aπŸ™ˆ

Dear{first name},

Do you ever feel like creating healthier habits (working out, eating better, etc.) is a lot of harder than it should be, especially during menopause when the weight just seems to creep up? Hang on, because I’ve got some news for you that I hope makes you feel a whole lot better about it! 

In fact, over the next few weeks I’m going to share some powerful info that makes creating new habits a whole LOT easier.

In a nutshell, it all comes down to one thing. Your MINDSET. Once you get your mindset right, everything else begins to fall into place.

Fun fact: Did you know that having a positive mindset can actually help you make healthier choices and actually live longer?

Even better fact: You don’t have to be born with a positive mindset. It’s something you can create and strengthen over time. 

I think we’ve all struggled with mastering new habits – things like meal prep (and then actually eating the meals we prepped),...

8 Foods That Help Relieve Menopausal Hot Flashes

Many women who are experiencing menopause complain of hot flashes. In fact, it is the most common complaint, affecting almost 80% of women.

This often debilitating, or at the very least annoying symptom can cause a lot of discomfort and stress to the woman who suffers from them, and can greatly impact quality of life.

I am not a fan of Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) at all, if needed bioidentical hormones would be my choice. But you are still adding hormones into your body. I coach my clients in helping themselves through natural means. Foods being my first choice and natural supplements that really work are always a part of my protocol too.

Then there is movement and stress management and living a meaningful life. Menopause is your chance to recreate your life, to live your highest purpose, to connect to your tribe and be content with your body and your life.
