Health Tip: Don't Let Menopause Get You Down

Health Tip: Don't Let Menopause Get You Down

08/01/11

(HealthDay News) -- Menopause is a behavioral roller coaster for some women, who experience a host of emotions including mood swings, fear, depression and irritability.

The womenshealth.gov website suggests how to ease moodiness associated with menopause:

  • Make sure you get enough sleep each night, and stick to a regular sleep and wake schedule.
  • Exercise for at least 30 minutes almost every day of the week.
  • Limit how many activities you take on.
  • Find ways to help manage stress.
  • Seek support from friends, a peer group or get counseling.
  • Talk to your doctor about medications and therapy options to help you manage menopause symptoms.
  • Relax by reading a book, or treat yourself to some quiet time.
