Enforce A Well-balanced Diet
During menopause fatigue, weakness can really put you down. Therefore, it is vital to have highly nutritious items or energy boosters to keep yourself going. Dieticians suggest eating more fruits, vegetables, tofu, complex carbohydrates such as cereals and brown rice, and phytoestrogen-rich foods such as tomatoes and oats.
Apart from the above eatables, there are some items that you must avoid, as they can exacerbate the condition of menopause fatigue. These foods are caffeine (instant energy giver but revokes it later resulting in more fatigue), alcohol, salt, spicy food, and saturated fats. As a tip, rather than adding artificial flavorings and spices, you can use herbs and lemon juice as flavors or toppings.
Supplement Your Body With Herbs
Menopausal fatigue is mostly because of the hormonal imbalance that can be brought back into balance with the intake of herbs. Moreover, the herbal supplements are safe and affordable ways to reduce fatigue during such a critical time.
Many suggest phytoestrogenic herbs such as Black Cohosh and Agnus Castus for treating menopausal fatigue, as they possess plant-based estrogenic components to rectify the hormonal balance. However, they inhibit the natural capacity of the body to repair the hormonal imbalance. Therefore, experts advise non-estrogenic herbs via which the body produces estrogen naturally. As these herbs are only recommended for short periods, supplements with vital vitamins and minerals such as iron and magnesium are more preferable, which act as energy boosters.
Stay Fresh And Active With Exercises
Performing simple exercises without any strain is a smart way to deal with menopausal fatigue. Experts recommend performing stress-reducing workouts such as stretching, breathing, and relaxing exercises. You can also go for spa treatments, warm baths, or pranayamas, but only after consulting your doctor.
Employ Stress Relievers
Did you know that stress can exacerbate menopause fatigue? Therefore, combat stress by at least nine hours of sleep, three hours of nutritious meals, two hours of meditation, and two hours of travel. You must follow this schedule daily and limit your work to the remaining hours. If you cannot complete the work, learn to say ‘no’ or transfer the job to your assistants temporarily.
Develop Soothing Hobbies
Hobbies are something that we love to do in our leisure time. However, not many of us are aware that some hobbies such as photography, listening to music, and painting trigger peace and a unique feeling of happiness, which can keep the experience of fatigue at bay. Sometimes, a psychological fear of fatigue can weaken you even before the condition actually hits you. Therefore, pamper yourself, relax, and be happy to remain stress and fatigue free.
