Back to basics: The symptoms of perimenopause such as night sweats, hot flashes, heavy bleeding, and mood change can make it hard to remember we need water, sleep, healthy diet with minimal simple carbs, exercise, and time to recharge and be grateful. Take time to make a plan. Every day drink 8 glasses of water, take vit d and mv, stretch and follow your plan.

Perimenopause: Although it is important that you talk with your primary physician about this but some simple things that you can do are 1. Change your diet (this will depend on what type of exercise you intend to do). 2. Daily multi-vitamins 3. Supplements such as vitamin b6 and b-12 complex.

Exercise will help: Being active helps make people feel more energetic. When we're inactive our muscles get achy and fatigued. Sitting all day long has been shown to be bad for health even if you exercise. It's a good idea to move around every half hour or so by stretching, walking up stairs, using resistance bands, or other light exercise. This is true no matter what your age.
