Maintain A Healthy Diet
Maintaining a healthy diet is a great first step to get protected during menopause. Instead of three square meals a day, eat three small meals and three healthy snacks. Eat a variety of foods to get all the nutrients you need. Since women’s diets are often low in iron and calcium, make sure to get enough calcium, iron and fiber from your food. Avoid spicy foods, alcohol, and caffeine; also meet the daily water requirement to prevent hot flashes.
Get Regular Physical Exercise
As we all know exercise is a great way to build better health, at the same time it is one of the best stress management techniques. A regular workout not only helps you to avoid menopausal weight gain but also relieves you from stress and relaxes your body. Although 30 minutes at least three times a week is best, even 10 minutes a day can improve a lot of menopause symptoms.
Practice Good Sleeping Habits
Getting enough good, quality sleep is important for good health in all stages of life. Researches indicate more than half of all women in menopause do not get enough sleep because of problems with hot flashes, depression, anxiety and insomnia. Stick to your normal sleep schedule during menopause or establish one if you haven’t already. Going to bed and getting up at the same time every day is the best way to get good healthy sleep. Do not stay up late and sleep in on the weekends, which can throw your schedule off. A hot bath before going to bed is recommended which is beneficial for several factors.
