Building Your Menopause Self-Care Toolkit

We use the phrase your menopause toolkit a lot when we’re talking to women. Your toolkit needs to be full of a lot of different components. None of them are complicated, fancy or even expensive- but they are all equally important in helping you navigate through your menopause smoothly. If your toolkit is well stocked- you might even surprise your self and find this transition more rewarding, fulfilling and life -changing than you ever imagined.

Your Menopause Toolkit needs:

  • Knowledge: You must understand what’s happening to your body. Menopause is perfectly natural and something every single woman will experience. Make sure you are armed with as much information about symptoms and their causes as possible. Our Specialist Menopause Doctors are here to help you with that.

  • Understand your choices: How you decide to manage your menopause symptoms is entirely your choice. Whether you decide to use Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) or not is a personal decision only you can make. There are pros and cons to weigh up. The only thing we insist on at Harley St at Home is that you get the right information to help you make the right choice for you. Our Menopause Specialist Doctors help you here too.

  • Evaluate your lifestyle: Menopause is an opportunity to evaluate other areas of your life. Think about your diet, how fit, strong, or flexible is your body? You’d be amazed how easy making some simple changes to your lifestyle can be- our team of nutrition and movement experts are here to help you every step of the way. We keep it real and make it easy to incorporate living well into your life. We are experts in our individual disciplines, but all have a very special interest in menopause too- this is real advice for real women!

  • How do you feel about you? Not a question anyone often asks you, is it? Please ask yourself though. Do you like yourself? Do you worry about what other people think about you? Do you spend a lot of time trying to keep other people happy? Are there things you’d like to do but lack the confidence? We spend a lifetime letting external events, people and beliefs shape the way we see ourselves in the world. Often the way you see yourself isn’t real, it’s just a thought, a belief that you have manufactured in your mind. With some simple techniques these beliefs can change. You can learn a new freedom and a new happiness by letting go of the things that don’t matter and focussing on the things that do. Our mind bites and our self-care sessions are specially designed to help you look, challenge, and reshape some of your beliefs about yourself.

  • How do you manage anxiety, tension, and overwhelm? We want to give you every tip and tool we can to help you deal with these negative and challenging emotions. Many can be made worse when your hormones are in roller coaster mode. But, with a little know-how they can also be calmed and completely controlled. Short, simple meditations, breathing exercise and mindfulness can completely transform your sense of emotional well-being. You can learn these techniques safely, without feeling silly and right in your own home.

Selfcare isn’t exclusive to celebs or the rich and famous. It is essential for every single one of you. We believe that self-care isn’t a luxury, it’s a necessity. You know you must eat well and exercise regularly to have a healthy body- doesn’t it make sense that you need to take care of your emotional and mental wellbeing too?

Building your selfcare toolkit and of course using it is what we mean when we say the Menopause can be a really rewarding, positive time in a women’s life. It’s a moment to stop, pause, reflect, and decide how you want the years ahead to be.

You don’t have to change your job, move home, or leave your family to get on with it without you! But you can decide that you are going to do a few more things which are for you, to make you feel better and to support you through this phase of your life.

Every class, every workshop, blog, or self-care session has been included in our timetable for a reason. These resources are here for you. Our team have seen thousands of women just like you use them and feel better because of them. You deserve to have a piece of this.

Menopause and how you manage your menopause is about so much more than hormones. You absolutely need to get your hormones under control but once you’ve done that don’t stop there.

Just take a minute to think about what else you’d like to achieve and then start building your toolkit to make it happen.
