Show Notes

Menopause affects every woman differently, and the sooner you understand its unique impact on you, the better you can prepare for it! For some women, it may feel like a sudden earthquake, and for others, it could be a gradual build. BUT it never has to be a life sentence! Consider today's episode your guide to surviving menopause as I share with you the powerful things I'm doing to survive (and thrive!) through my journey. 

Keep in mind that the transition into menopause can start as early as your mid-30s, so it's better to get ahead of the symptoms before they start to disrupt your routine. Today, I cover everything from changing your mindset about menopause to tips on nutrition and tailoring your workout to the symptoms of menopause. So, if you're struggling with hot flashes, mood swings, brain fog, or energy issues, this episode is for you!
