Exercise Through Menopause: How to beat midlife weight gain and more
Exercise Through Menopause: There’s a natural tendency to view the body as weak and fragile as we get older. While there are unavoidable aspects to aging – at the end of the day, the human body is fundamentally strong and built for movement. Movement is medicine for the body. Sometimes whether it’s due to a fear of injury, lack of motivation, not enough time, or being overwhelmed with where to start, we stop moving.
Menopause is an opportunity to embrace exercise and movement. It can be a part of the day carved out just for you. Exercise can help to ease menopause-related concerns and improve overall enjoyment in life.
Before we dive in, it’s important to note that you should always reach out to your doctor before starting a new exercise routine. They can provide you with individualized medical advice and help to guide you in what types of movement are the best fit for you.
