GenM general top tips
Check out our great tips on coping with the menopause to give yourself an easier ride.
Drink at least two litres of water every day to help ward off changes to your skin, hair and nails, keep your organs in check and your brain firing on all cylinders.
Whether it’s a brisk walk or full-blown workout, lifting your heart-rate will release endorphins – your brain’s own pick-me-up for both mental and physical symptoms.
Eat the rainbow
Up the amount of veg, protein, calcium and magnesium in your diet to give your body the good stuff it needs to deal with the changes it’s going through.
Get a better night’s sleep
Getting six to eight hours sleep a night is the secret of a better day with less intense symptoms. Avoid screens and stimulants like caffeine before bed.
Seek out supplements
Finding the right supplements for you can work wonders – from Omega-3s to fire up your brain through to sage extract to keep hot flushes at bay.
It’s well worth investigating whether or not you can take it. Track your symptoms on paper or via an app and show your doctor to find the right type and dose for you.
