As us women get older, it’s natural to lose confidence due to the hormonal alterations that occur during the menopause. Whilst our bodies go through these drastic changes, it’s important to remain as present as possible and continue to enjoy life the way we want to.
Healthy body, happy life
As our bodies are preparing for menopause, many symptoms occur such as hot flushes, tiredness, weight gain etc. It’s a good idea to support these changes and live a healthy lifestyle by eating the right foods and paying attention to your body’s needs. For more information and inspiration, check out the UK’s leading nutritionist’s book ‘The Natural Health Bible for Women’ (RRP £19.99, www.thenaturalhealthpractice.com) to help you combat menopausal symptoms in a natural and effective way.
Lift your libido
There are many factors that can contribute to a drop in your sex drive, however there are ways you can help boost your libido. Start by recognising the reasons you may not feel as sexy as you use to, whether that be a lack of confidence due to a change in your body, mood or health. It’s important to bare in mind that women who have good general health are more likely to be sexually active. Consider a natural supplement to boost your libido like NHP Libido Support (RRP £29.77, www.thenaturalhealthpractice.com)
Enjoy your comfort zone
Whether it’s music, movies, television, art or a particular location, enjoy it and allow yourself the time to enjoy it. It may seem trivial, but if you allow yourself to enjoy the things you love, this can help boost your confidence and mood, making you happier and relaxed, especially if you live a very busy and hectic lifestyle.
Surround yourself with love
Again, this may seem trivial, but sharing spaces with people you love and admire can help to boost your confidence. These people will respect you, love you for who you are and allow your confidence to radiate. You don’t need to be wasting time around people that allow your energy to wither. They should lift you up and make you happy. Concentrate on those who fulfil this criteria and ignore those who don’t lift your spirit.
