Menopause in 2020

On the subject of menopause …….

How was 2020 for you?

How are you feeling right now, heading into 2021?

A couple of positive updates:

  • In September 2020 Menopause was added to the school curriculum for the first time in the UK
  • In November 2020 the General Medical Council issued new guidelines for GP’s with regards to patient choice which means your opinions regarding HRT, if that’s what you’re thinking of, can be discussed confidently with your GP

Small steps but in the right direction.

Whichever stage of the menopause you are right now, has this pandemic brought any positives to your life?

For me – my hair got long, exposing grey roots and actually that was fine! My hairdresser has created a new look, costing less and using less chemicals – a win, win for me.

Has the pandemic changed how your menopause feels?

Has it been easier to cope with symptoms if you’ve been working from home?

Maybe no physical interaction with colleagues – has that been better or worse emotionally for you?

Have you had the motivation to exercise, maybe long walks?

How has your diet been? More time to prepare meals and eat well or too many opportunities to snack?

What have the dynamics at home been like? Too many or too few people around you?

The pandemic has created change in everyone’s life. Some aspects of this change will feel good, some bad.

Moving forwards into a new year provides the perfect opportunity to bring some of the positive changes with you. I can help you plan ahead and get the work-life balance right, this is a really important phase in your life and you deserve to be the best version of you – so reach out and let’s start working on a happy and healthy new year together.

    Great article, very thought provoking. I think lockdown has made me re-evaluate what’s important plus catch up on those ‘to do’ jobs!
