Did you know October is World Menopause Month? Surprisingly, the celebration is in its infancy. It’s just 7 years old, even though menopause has always been a natural part of a woman’s life cycle.
Once a taboo subject, especially in the workplace, women are beginning to talk about menopause. There are even public discussions by employers in the UK to support women as much as they’re supported during pregnancy, and some companies are doing what it takes to be dubbed a “menopause-friendly workplace.”

However, it can be a time of self-reflection, celebration, and designing the many decades of life still left ahead. You can tap into the fountain of youth through your actions.
No matter your age, every woman has the power to make menopause manageable. What you do today can impact you ten years from now! There are 7 habits that deserve attention as you age. What steps will you take to be intentional about your mindset as you age, to manage menopause symptoms, and to optimize your overall health and well-being?
