Why Women 40+?
For most women, as they enter their 40s, we start our journey through peri-menopause. This is when we begin to experience a fall in our hormones, specifically estrogen and progesterone. This decline is responsible for some of the big changes we experience, such as:
- Mood shifts,
- Irregular periods,
- Hot flashes and night sweats,
- Increased anxiety and racing mind,
- Changing body composition (increased body fat and decreased lean muscle mass),
- Sleep issues,
- Increased stress (we don’t clear out cortisol as efficiently),
- Joint aches and pains,
- Fatigue and low energy levels, and
- Longer recovery times.
The transition through peri-menopause lasts on average 4-5 years. We reach Menopause on the one year anniversary of having no period. We are then considered post-menopause. The average age of menopause is 51. When we are post-menopause, our estrogen and progesterone production from our ovaries flatlines (our adrenals can still make some hormones, but not much). This journey through peri-menopause to post-menopause can be quite turbulent and leave us feeling very disconnected to our body. We can feel overwhelmed, undermotivated and frustrated. Our body (and mind) start to have very different needs than our younger self.
