Staying positive is one of the keys to navigating your way through menopause without thinking you’re going crazy. Or worse - giving in to the panic and despair you might feel! I invite you to join my Magic Menopause program where you can experience these changes with other women who get it.

Key Takeaways

  • Don’t give up. Let’s take this one day at a time. You can go forward two steps at a time. [7:45]
  • Have a self-care day. Go out and treat yourself to a day at the spa, relaxing, and just enjoying your own company. This will do wonders for your mental health! [11:30]
  • Love is the most healing emotion. You can heal your hormones and heal your health by reigniting love in your life. [19:00]

About Magic Menopause

Coming into this season in our life doesn’t have to be a scary, stressful time. And it doesn’t have to be anything like what our mothers went through.

Yes, our bodies change again. Yes, our hormones fluctuate. And yes, this can absolutely cause our moods to shift.

But ladies, I want you to know that you have all the control over your menopausal years. You can be strong and calm throughout this period.

I know it can feel like a descent into madness and chaos. Just like when you went through puberty, your body is changing again. It’s easy to let the anxiety and panic take over, but you don’t have to.

Remember that being present is a present. Live in these moments and cherish them, whether you’re on your own or with your partner and family.

You Have to Keep Moving Forward

It can feel like an uphill battle when you’re trying to take care of your health while going through menopause. You lose weight, then you gain it back just to lose it again.

I have been there and I want you to know that you are not alone going through this. The only way out of it is to go through it. Keep moving forward and don’t give up.

And when you feel like you’ve had enough, I need you to know that you haven’t. This is not the straw that broke the camel’s back and it won’t break yours. You can get through whatever you’re going through and tackle these problems - I promise you, you can!

When you start to feel this way, I want you to have a self-care day. Whether you go out and spoil yourself at a spa or take care of yourself inside the house, spending this time connecting with your body and soul is vital for positive mental health.

 Join Magic Menopause: The Program for Women Who Get It

I want to invite you to join me to go through my Magic Menopause program together. It’s always so much better when you’re going through changes with other women who get it.

We talk about what hormones you need to be aware of and how you can support them through these changes. When your hormones are in check, your mental health will be in a more stable state, too.

Another aspect of your health we cover in-depth during the Magic Menopause program is the concept that if your behavior affects your physiology and vice versa, we can use one to positively impact the other. This means positive changes to how we eat, move, and treat ourselves. 

By balancing our physiology, we can improve our overall behaviors and the actual longevity of our lives.

Finally, I want to emphasize how important love as an emotion is. Love for yourself, love for others, and love from others can help heal you. It is by far the most healing emotion and one you should cultivate more of in your life.

I invite you to join the next Magic Menopause program.

“Present presence is a present. And being present is a present.” [2:33]

“Whatever it may be that causes us to fall off the wagon when we were doing so well, but now it’s one step forward, two steps back. That’s okay. It’s better than three steps back. We’re going to keep moving forward. The first thing is to accept where we are at and know, without a doubt, that we can make an improvement.” [7:11]

“I know it feels like the straw that broke the camel’s back, but none of this will break your back because we can be better tomorrow than we are today and tackle these problems.” [9:27]

“If behavior affects physiology and physiology affects behavior, we can use one to help the other.” [16:00]
