September is recognized as Menopause Awareness Month. During this month I will periodically share my observations, tips, and thoughts, with a scoop of humor.
Here are my ramblings for today…
No need to be frustrated about the annoying symptoms of menopause. As one of the insurance commercials says, ”think of all the money you’ll save…” (by utilizing your menopause symptoms).
Give up your gym membership. You can get the same workout as you sleep. A simple round of night sweats will have you feeling like you’re swimming laps.
Any hot flashes you experience can be equated to running a 50-yard dash.
Think of mood swings as enhancing your personality. Some people speak two languages, you can transform yourself into two people.
Have you ever felt like you have to laugh to keep from crying (as the saying goes)? Sometimes a little laughter helps to ease stress we’re feeling. I have just the thing for you. I’ve teamed up with Dr. Joy for a Girls Night In. Our event is Take a Men-It-to Pause. It will be a night of hormones, hope, and humor.
Girls Night In will include story sharing, games, prizes, and comedy. This free event will take place by Zoom on Tuesday, September 8th at 7pm (EST). Space is limited, register by Saturday, September 5th (through Eventbrite).
Whether you experience brain fog, mood swings, or hot flashes, there is hope, healing and humor through the stages of menopause.
Here’s a homework assignment for you. Think about your funniest menopausal moment – did that memory bring a smile to your face? Hold that thought and share it with us during A Men-It-to Pause. You will get through this season; you are not alone.
It’s time to celebrate YOU.
