Confidence in the menopause - or lack there of

I've recently run a survey on the menopause journey, looking at symptoms and support.

One of the questions was 'Has going through the menopause affected your confidence?'

The result was a staggering 86%.

Comments such as: "Don’t feel like me anymore"; "Feel stupid and forgetful."; "If I could, I’d never go out again."; "Constantly question everything I do, what I wear, do I look good enough."

Many feel unattractive and uninteresting.

These comments were so sad to read.

Hormonal fluctuations can contribute to mood swings, self-doubt, and a sense of vulnerability. Understanding that these feelings are shared by many women going through menopause can be comforting.

Seek Support - Connect with friends, family, or support groups. Sharing your experiences and feelings with others going through similar situations can provide comfort and reassurance. Sometimes, just knowing that you're not alone in this journey can boost your confidence.

Look after your well-being - prioritise your physical health. Regular exercise not only has physical benefits but can also improve mood and boost self-esteem. A healthy diet and adequate sleep contribute to overall well-being, positively influencing your confidence.

Regaining confidence is a gradual process, and it's okay to seek support when needed. Be patient with yourself, celebrate your strengths, and focus on the positive aspects of this transformative period in your life.

Message me to book a one to one appointment which can either be face to face or online.

The important thing to remember though is, you're not alone.
