Have you got the winter blues?

Chances are you’re feeling less than zappy right now if you’re not a winter lover. Here are three simple ways to get more of a spring in your step:


Try EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique). It sounds a bit woo-woo so it can be a bit of a hard thing to get your head around for some. However, plenty of experts say simply tapping specific areas with your fingers can increase your va va voom. For energy, a simplified version involves tapping the dent above your rib cage at the bottom of your throat with the first three fingers of your hand. Do you know where we mean? It’s the curve in the bone at the top of the rib cage. This technique is said to be great at helping with lots of maladies as well as the law of attraction.

2. Friends

Surround yourself with high energy friends. You know what it’s like when you’re in the company of certain people? You can’t help picking up on their energy and if they’re full of life and bubbling over with activity you can’t help but be affected. Easy.

3. Take a break

It might seem like basic stuff, but how often do you soldier on getting the job done? Goodness knows we’ve all been guilty of it at some stage. The irony is, if you take a mini-break, get up, stand up and walk around for a few minutes – walk to the loo or the letterbox – you’ll come back and be more productive. It’s about moving and giving your brain a wee rest stop.

Easy peasy 💙

This is the time when menstruation is well and truly over, the ovaries have stopped producing high levels of sex hormones and for many ladies, perimenopause symptoms subside.

Estrogen has protective qualities and the diminished levels mean organs such as your brain, heart and bones become more vulnerable. It’s also a key lubricant so your lips may become drier, your joints less supple and your vagina might be drier. In addition, your thyroid, digestion, insulin, cortisol and weight may alter.

At this juncture, a woman might experience an increase in the signs of reduced estrogen but she should have a decrease of perimenopause symptoms. That said, some women will experience symptoms like hot flushes for years or even the rest of their lives.


Peri = ‘near’

Most females begin to experience the symptoms of perimenopause in their mid-forties. Your progesterone levels decline from your mid-30s but it’s generally from around 40 that the rest of your sex hormones begin to follow suit. 

Perimenopause is a different experience for every woman and some women may barely notice it. The first indicators are usually changes to the monthly cycle. This means that for some ladies, this can be accompanied by things like sore breasts, mood swings, weight gain around the belly, and fatigue as time goes on.

For those with symptoms it can be a challenging time physically, mentally and emotionally.

Importantly, perimenopause lasts – on average – four to 10 years. The transition is usually a gradual process and many women enter perimenopause without realising.
