Menopause messing with your mind? The Collective can help!

by | Aug 28, 2021 | Moving Through Menopause Podcast

Menopause messes with your mind!

I can attest to that! So for this episode I have got the Menopause Collective on the case. We cover stories and strategies to capably cope with shifting roles and responsibilities and workplace challenges. Let’s harness our creativity to explore techniques to thrive up to, through and beyond menopause.

Phillipa Butler; Chartered Physiotherapist chats with Shirley Ward; Nutritionist, Jacquie Whur; Hypnotherapist, June Tranmer Acupuncturist and Nikki Chamberlain; Health coach to tackle the common symptom of menopause from lots of different angles!

Strategies to calm you in heated moments

Did you ever wonder why putting your hand to your head in desperate moments might be an instinctive reaction to soothe yourself by activating Acupuncture points on the forehead that can calm us down. Have you noticed the calming effects of a walk in nature? It turns out that moving the eyes; particularly from side to side, can ‘talk’ to the parts of the brain that help to calm us. This phenomenon is known as eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR). Learn more about the science here

Menopause and work

Menopause is on the agenda more now than ever before in workplaces; which is a step in the right direction. But we need real acknowledgement and adjustments to allow women to continue to thrive and grow in and out of work. For women who experience a premature menopause or those who are plunged into sudden onset after surgery or cancer treatment, retirement is a long way in the future and appropriate workplace adjustments are even more necessary.

Empty Nest? Plan for your future with a Vision Board

If you are feeling a bit adrift, be reassured the best is yet to come but making a plan is the first step. Why not grab some A3 paper, some magazines and a glue stick and build a vision board to really bring that future to life and make your plans a reality.

Or grab your ear buds and take us for a stroll as you listen to the Podcast on Anchor FM.
