Menopause can be challenging for many women, but there are ways to make it easier. Bette Vargas is a certified holistic health coach and the creator of Crazy, Sexy Menopause, and she helps post-menopausal women improve their well-being and live more gracefully and vibrantly. First and foremost, regular exercise and healthy eating are essential for alleviating menopausal symptoms. Your body constantly gives you feedback on what activities and foods are helpful and harmful, so listening to your body is the key to improving your experience. Keep a positive mindset, live in a state of gratitude, and accept the changes you are going through. Embrace menopause as a re-awakening and not a burden!
