Simple healthy habits are the foundation of your life– both for now and into the future. If you’ve never given much thought to your health, it’s not too late! Small changes can yield big, positive results.
Be your best health advocate. You can’t keep your body from going through menopause, but you can become informed about the process. The better educated you are about your options, the better decisions you’ll be able to make.
Stop reading articles online and diagnosing yourself. Get yourself to a physician you trust. Ask for tests to measure what’s happening in your body. Use those results to make a plan
Accept that things change. The more you try to fight Mother Nature, the more frustrated you’re going to be.
