Embracing the Summer of Change: Supporting Your Body Through Perimenopause

Ah, the summer sun! The time of the year when nature blossoms, and our spirits soar. But for those of us going through perimenopause, this season can bring a mix of emotions and unique challenges. Fear not, dear warriors of change, for I am here to guide you through this transformative journey with love, compassion, and practical tips to support your body during this summer of transformation.

1. Stay Hydrated: Nourishing From Within

As the sun blazes high in the sky, our bodies crave hydration more than ever. During perimenopause, hormonal fluctuations can cause unexpected temperature spikes and hot flashes. Stay ahead of the game by carrying a reusable water bottle wherever you go. Infuse it with refreshing slices of cucumber, lemon, or dōTERRA Peppermint or Wild Orange for an extra boost of hydration and flavour.

2. Nourish with Cooling Foods

Embrace the beauty of seasonal fruits and vegetables! Mother Nature gifts us with cooling foods during this time, and they can become your best allies. Savour juicy watermelons, hydrating cucumbers, and succulent salads filled with leafy greens. These not only refresh your body but also provide essential nutrients to support your hormones.

3. Embrace Self-Care: Listen to Your Body

Dear friends, self-care is not just a buzzword; it’s a lifeline during perimenopause. When your body speaks, listen with a compassionate heart. Rest when needed, take naps when fatigue overwhelms you, and allow yourself the grace to say no to activities that drain your energy. Honour your boundaries; you are worthy of care and respect.

4. Connect with Nature: Soul-Healing Therapy

Summer invites us to reconnect with the great outdoors. Spend time under the shade of a tree, feel the grass under your bare feet, or dip your toes in the refreshing waters of a nearby lake. Nature has an incredible ability to heal our souls, helping us find serenity amidst the chaos of change.

5. Seek Support and Share Experiences

Perimenopause can sometimes feel like an isolated journey, but you are never alone. Reach out to friends, family, or even online communities to share your experiences. Talking about your challenges and triumphs can provide immense relief and help you navigate through this phase with greater strength. If you need additional support, reach out to me by sending an email to hello@rockondivas.com.

6. Exercise Mindfully: Embrace Gentle Movement

Engaging in gentle exercises such as yoga, swimming, or walking can work wonders for your body and mind. Not only does it promote flexibility and strength, but it also aids in reducing stress and anxiety. Remember, this is a time of transition; listen to your body and avoid pushing yourself too hard.

7. Prioritize Sleep: The Restorative Power of Slumber

Ah, the magic of sleep! During perimenopause, sleep patterns can become disrupted, leaving you feeling tired and irritable. Create a bedtime routine to signal your body that it’s time to unwind. Dim the lights, read a soothing book, or practice deep breathing to ease into a peaceful slumber. You may want to include dōTERRA Lavender oil or Serenity blend to aid restful sleep. Lavender also supports hormonal balance, so you get two for the price of one…result!!

8. Consult Your Healthcare Provider

As the captain of your ship, remember to consult your healthcare provider for personalized guidance on navigating through perimenopause. They can provide tailored recommendations and, if needed, prescribe treatments to ease your symptoms and improve your overall well-being.

Dear beautiful souls, embrace this summer of change as a time of growth and renewal. Celebrate your strength and resilience as you support your body through perimenopause. Remember, you are blossoming like a flower, and every step of this journey brings you closer to the wise, empowered woman you are becoming. Be kind to yourself, surround yourself with love, and know that this too shall pass. Let this summer be a season of transformation, acceptance, and self-love!

Happy, Healthy Summer Fun!
