3 Common Menopause Symptoms and How to Beat Them

Hot Flashes

  • Pay attention to (and avoid) your triggers. Common triggers include caffeine, stress and spicy foods.
  • Take deep slow breaths when you feel a flash coming on.

Trouble Sleeping

  • Stay active during the day, but avoid exercise right before bed.
  • Go to bed and wake up at the same time every day.
  • Only use your bed for sleep and sex (not watching TV or scrolling through social media).

Mood Swings

  • Take care of both your mind and body.
  • Exercise and eat well.
  • Find support from other women who are having a similar experience.
  • If you can’t seem to shake the blues, talk to a doctor, who can help diagnose and treat depression, if necessary.
