Stress Management Is Key to Handling the Emotional Impact of Menopause

Everyone knows that stress is something that needs to be taken care of because it can lead to physical and emotional problems. But stress during menopause can step up the negative impact on your body and your emotions.

Menopause can add to the stress that you already have in your life because one minute you’re up and one minute you’re down. This hormonal stress - in addition to any stress - can make your life feel like a huge struggle.

On top of that, the side effects of menopause also add to the stress that you feel. All of this causes you to handle your life differently. What happens is that your reaction to the stressors change during menopause.

Before menopause, waiting in traffic might not seem like such a big deal. During menopause, it can seem like the worst thing in the world - and that’s because of the fluctuating hormone levels.

Warning signs that your menopause needs some stress management relief are if you’ve developed trouble sleeping, trouble eating, and your emotions seem over the top to you. You can’t always help the emotions that you experience during menopause - especially if you’re not taking hormone replacement.

But what you can do is to make some changes so that the stress is managed. By better managing the stress, you can lessen the emotional impact you go through with menopause.

Stress always makes everything worse. When you manage stress, you take it out of the equation. You can manage stress by making sure you exercise. Exercise releases feel good chemicals that can improve the way your brain handles emotions.

Getting involved in an activity to help alleviate stress can also help. A good activity for that would be something like meditation, which teaches users how to focus and center their emotions.

Another way that you can manage the stress to help your emotions during menopause is to be in control of your body by getting to a hormonal solution. For some women, this means seeking the help of someone qualified to deal with the emotional side effects of menopause.

Other women go to see their doctor and get checked to see if they need any kind of medicinal help such as replacement therapy, anti-anxiety medication or medicines that help with depression brought on by menopause.

Seek the support of your friends. Being social, even when you’re not feeling like yourself, can help boost your mood and lower the stress you’re experiencing. Find the joy in your life.

Menopause is known as an energy draining experience. Learn to practice some self-love and treat yourself with kindness. Say no to situations or to people that cause your stress level to rise.
