Lifestyle Medicine – Practical Strategies to Menopause

InitiativeCareer


I lead first of the many planned drop-in session for our ICS (NHS) workforce. The aim was to start a conversation around menopause , sharing experiences at work and at home
It was well attended ,37 attendees, who shared how it affects their work and what changes they have made to their lifestyle to
overcome these ,what barriers they faced and how they navigated through them
We talked about menopause in very general terms (as it wasn’t meant to be a teaching session nor for diagnosis of menopause)
We then addressed each pillar of lifestyle medicine -impact of menopause and shared tips how to identify and overcome barriers-
some being lack of motivation, worries around strength training and how women may be concerned being perceived as not so productive in this
stage of life.
