Are you wondering—what’s happened to my figure?
Adding a few pounds during perimenopause or the menopause is pretty normal.
Hormone changes (coupled with age and genetics) can leave you vulnerable weight gain especially around the waist area.
Trying to then shift it is another story.
All is not lost—you can fight back and beat the bulge.
Here are a few tips:
- Banish stress from your life. Increased cortisol levels can lead to weight gain. Make time to relax. Try yoga or meditation—both are great ways to unwind and build mental resilience.
- Enjoy the sunshine and boost your vitamin D to improve well-being.
- Ensure you get a good night's sleep. Broken nights and a lack of restful shut-eye impacts your metabolism and encourages weight gain.
We get it, in today’s busy world many of us will experience sleep problems at some point.
