Feeling more fatigued is common for many women during menopause. This can be due to a variety of reasons including hormonal changes, poor sleep, hydration, and nutrient deficiencies. The good news is there are lifestyle strategies you can put in place to help feel more energized.
- Assess your sleep. Are you getting 7-9 hours on most nights of the week? If not, determining why and addressing the cause of poor sleep can be the first step to decreasing fatigue.
- Establish a regular exercise routine. Even if you are tired going into a workout, most people report having more energy when they finish exercising than when they started. Exercise can also help improve sleep, so it’s a double win!
- Water plays an important role in so many functions in our body, if you are dehydrated these functions may not perform optimally leaving you feeling more fatigued.
- Absorption of nutrients can decrease during menopause, so nutrition can play an even more important role. Eating a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables, which are nutrient dense, is one way to get the nutrients you need. Gennev’s Vitality also offers nutrients that are commonly low in menopause.
- Take a nap. The natural hormonal shifts during menopause can lead to more fatigue as the body experiences the changes that occur. At times, the best way to fight fatigue is going to be to listen to it and give yourself permission to rest.
