As you know, I created my transformative program of 21 days within the framework of the movement "the 40 are the new 20" to face in the best possible way all the changes that come with the years and feel beautiful, energetic, full and happy in this stage. One of the main changes in a woman's life is the arrival of menopause, and at forty she begins, with perimenopause, the countdown to that moment. Let's see how to overcome it in the style of the 40s are the new 20s.
Change the mindset about menopause: Most women are scared of that word, especially since it is something permanent and unknown. Yes, it is true that menopause involves a series of uncomfortable symptoms such as hot flashes, fatigue, depression or insomnia. But it is also true that it is NOT a disease, but a natural and current process that ALL women will go through. Let's also rejoice because today there are an infinity of treatments (hormonal replacement, natural remedies, etc.) that can alleviate practically all annoying symptoms, so there is no need to suffer, because there are options.

Take care of yourself and your appearance: I mean, for example, the care of your skin and hair, which suffer the ravages of a lack of estrogens. Regarding the skin, a good idea to combat dryness and wrinkles is the use of a retinoid or soy protein moisturizer and plenty of sunscreen. For dryness and hair loss it is very important to nourish it well, use vitamins such as biotin, always use conditioner and avoid strong chemicals, choosing natural dyes, for example. Take care of your smile and oral health, brushing and using silk and mouthwash after each meal to prevent the sensitivity of gums and teeth that comes with menopause.
Now more than ever, you have to control stress, eat well, exercise and have quality sleep: combat the loss of muscle mass and bone density and maintain a healthy weight by exercising light to moderate, at least 20-30 minutes four times a week. Regarding food, it reduces the consumption of alcohol, caffeine, sweet and spicy foods, since they worsen the symptoms. Sleep at least seven hours a day, eight is ideal. And last but not least, practice stress relaxation techniques, our main enemy before and after menopause.
