Your energy and attractive body are GONE FOR GOOD~ Angela Byrne, Author and Creator of ‘Power of Hormones‘ – Helping Women To Achieve Optimal Hormone Health.
Who doesn’t wish they could turn back the clock and enjoy the physical appearance and vibrant health you had just a few short years ago. And yet…
It can feel like there’s just no way to do that…
Like your energy and attractive body are gone for good.
Problem is, as we enter our 40’s and 50’s — our peri-menopausal years and beyond — we’re typically taught to expect weight gain… loss of muscle tone… decreased energy… and more.
It’s just a fact of life, and there’s nothing you can do about it… right?
There are so many things working against you:
- Your metabolism has slowed down, making it harder for your body to burn calories and keep weight off
- Your body is going through hormone changes that negatively affect your weight, your muscle tone, and your energy level
- You’re so busy taking care of everyone around you that you really don’t have much time left to take care of yourself
- At the end of the day, you barely have enough energy left to drag yourself to bed… let alone develop a sleek, sexy, healthy body you can be proud of
But in spite of all of that…
Women in their 40’s, 50’s and beyond achieve and maintain vibrant health and lean figures all the time!
Unfortunately, most of us go about it the WRONG WAY.
I’m here to explain to you why menopause is often NOT the culprit for weight gain as we age.
And as you read through this book, I will tell you exactly what you need to do – not only to start losing weight, but to increase your self-worth and confidence, feel fitter, healthier and more relaxed, so you can become the person you are meant to be.
Energy Boosters For Menopause Related Fatigue
Many women experience annoying symptoms when they go through menopause. One common complaint is fatigue, especially during the early stages of menopause when your body is adjusting to the new chemical and hormonal balance.
If you are experiencing fatigue as a result of menopause, you don’t need to suffer through it. Below are ten ways you can boost your energy levels and feel less fatigued.
Getting thirty to sixty minutes of exercise a day, even just taking a brisk walk, can help boost your energy levels. While this is probably the last thing you want to do when you are tired, exercise boosts your energy by producing feel-good hormones that give you more energy.
Limit caffeine and alcohol
Both caffeine and alcohol can affect your energy levels and interfere with your sleep. While they may give you an immediate rush of energy, this is often short and when it wears off you will be left feeling even more tired than before.
Watch what you eat
Eating smaller meals more frequently throughout the day can provide you with constant energy, but you can’t eat just anything. Limit the amounts of fats and sweets you eat and instead eat a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins.
By taking the time to do the things you enjoy doing, you are allowing your body to relax. “Menopause: The Journal of the North American Menopause Journal” published a study showing that stress-reduction therapy decreased hot flashes by 22 percent. Relaxing also contributes to a good night’s sleep, which will lead to more energy.
Get enough sleep
Hot flashes and night sweats can disrupt your sleep and leave you feeling tired. Making your bedroom darker and cooler than normal, using a ceiling fan and wearing lightweight clothing to bed can help you sleep better at night. Set your body’s clock by going to bed and waking up around the same time everyday.
Don’t overbook your day
You may feel more fatigued because you are trying to do much in a day. Learn to say no, and ask family to do some of the household chores. Taking on more then you can comfortably do in a day will increase your stress levels, which will impact your sleep and cause even more fatigue.
Drink enough water
When you aren’t getting enough water, your body needs to work harder to perform. This can lead to fatigue and difficulty concentrating. Increasing your water intake to eight to ten glasses of water a day will help give you more energy.
Get some sun
Sunlight helps stimulate feelings of alertness. If you are walking in the sun you are getting energy from both exercising and the sunlight. If you chose to relax and read a book outside, you are still getting double the benefits with relaxation and the sunlight.
B-vitamins are an excellent option for energy. The best form of vitamin B is through nutritional yeast. Coconut oil is good for your thyroid and is also an energy booster.
Black cohosh and valerian are both herbal remedies for fatigue. Talk to your doctor before taking any herbs or supplements to make sure they are safe to take with any other medications you may be on.
Taking control of your fatigue is easy if you apply some or all of the above tips. Adopting a healthy lifestyle, eating right, exercising, getting enough sleep, and relaxing, will help you have more energy to enjoy your life to the fullest.
