Tips for menopause: celebrate this time of life.

What about increased freedom? For many of us, the change of life comes around the time that our kids are going off to college or moving out of the house. Although children growing up and going off on their own is bittersweet, why not focus on all your newly found free time. Now, you can finally put the energy into really working on yourself and making this new stage of life an expression of who you really are, separate from your husband or partner and kids. For some women, this may mean totally reinventing themselves, starting a company or writing a book. For others, it may mean traveling the world or donating time to community projects that they care deeply about. In order to navigate “the change” in a healthy manner, you must shift from caretaking to taking care of yourself. This time of life is definitely more about maintenance, so self-care is essential.
