2. Stay Calm
The anticipation of visiting a new or favorite spot can lead to overly ambitious scheduling. You may feel like you should see a certain selection of sites, or perhaps you want to do anything and everything on offer to get the most out of your trip. Unfortunately, that’s a recipe for burnout, and surely to end in discomfort.
One of the keys to managing menopause is learning how and when to rest. You’re more prone to stress and fatigue, and those in turn make you more vulnerable to other menopause discomforts, like hot flashes and anxiety. Try to balance your time with a “one on, one off” approach: plan a full day of sightseeing, body surfing, or whatever high-energy activity you like, and take the next day to read, relax, and regroup.
Yoga can be both calming and challenging. Practicing yoga for menopause should focus on restoring balance by calming your nerves and cooling your body.
