How To Manage Your Menopause This Festive Season
As the Christmas season is finally here, many of us are looking forward to spending quality time with friends and family. However, if you’re going through peri/menopause then you may be feeling worried about how to keep cool and calm during this busy period. Christmas should be a fun and relaxing time, but it can bring with it extra stress, pressure and triggers.
Taking some time out with a replenishing bath can help reduce your stress and menopausal symptoms, so you can have the most relaxing time possible over the holidays.
Magnesium flakes and menopause
Magnesium is an important mineral in the body. When women go through menopause, often their magnesium levels deplete, which can have adverse effects. These effects can range from hormone changes to dry skin. This is why replenishing your magnesium levels can help improve your overall health and boost your mood, something that can really help during Christmas time!
An effective way to up your magnesium intake is to use our magnesium flakes in your bath. Simply run a warm bath (not too hot!) and pour 2-4 cups of the magnesium into the water. The bath salts will soak into your skin, replenishing your magnesium levels and helping you have a stress-free soak.
How magnesium flakes can help boost your mood
When it comes to spending time with friends and family during your menopause, you’re going to want to be in the best mood possible to truly enjoy your time. Studies have suggested that a magnesium deficiency can be linked to reduced serotonin levels.
Serotonin, nicknamed the happy hormone, is responsible for regulating your mood. When there are low levels of serotonin, it can lead to feelings of anxiety and depression. Magnesium is an essential mineral for serotonin production, meaning you definitely need to keep your magnesium levels up!
How to de-stress during peri/menopause
A big part of menopause is your change in hormones. This can make you more easily irritated and stressed out, which can add to the pressure you put on yourself during the festive period.
