Menopause is a natural transition that all women go through between the ages of 45 and 55. It is marked by the end of menstruation and a decline in reproductive hormones. While menopause isn’t a disease, it can cause a variety of symptoms, including hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, tiredness and more.
While some of the symptoms of menopause can be uncomfortable, there are things you can do to manage them and stay healthy during this time. One of the most important things is to stay active. Exercise has been shown to have a number of benefits for menopausal women, including:
- Reducing hot flashes and night sweats
- Improving mood and energy levels
- Reducing the risk of other medical conditions
- Helping to maintain a healthy weight
- Improving sleep quality
If you are new to exercise, start slow and gradually increase the intensity and duration of your workouts over time. It is important to find activities that you enjoy and that fit into your lifestyle. Some good options for menopausal women include:
- Strength training
Staying active during menopause is one of the best things you can do for your overall health and well-being. Exercise can help you manage your symptoms, reduce your risk of chronic diseases, and improve your quality of life.
