9. Get Moving
Everyone knows that exercise is good for you. As you get into menopause, though, it becomes an essential part of your healthy life plan. Women going through this midlife transition will benefit from regular exercise. Regular exercise improves energy, metabolism and healthier joints and bones. Set a goal to do at least 30 minutes of moderate intensity on most days of the week. This type of workout can include walking, biking, swimming, tennis, and jogging. You can even sneak in exercise throughout your day by parking further to walk, taking the stairs, or biking to your nearby errands. Many people opt to even walk in large shopping malls when they want to beat the heat outside. Regular exercise can improve your mental health and overall quality of life for women experiencing menopause.
Besides, regular exercise is linked to better health and protection from diseases and conditions, including heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, obesity, and high blood pressure. Exercise can help minimize menopause symptoms such as mood swings, fatigue, anxiety, and poor sleep. It can also help with various diseases and conditions, as well as weight gain.
