Being proactive about your physical and mental health throughout your menopause and beyond.

Being proactive about your physical and mental health throughout your menopause and beyond.

Recently The Abbott and Ipsos survey found that over 80 per cent women believe menopause  impacts their personal wellbeing . Menopause may also lead to effects on women’s mental health and cognition from depression and anxiety to irritability, poor concentration sleep loss and memory issues.

As a total wellbeing and Ayurvedic lifestyle coach I have always believed in the importance of being proactive about your physical and mental wellbeing. What happens in your head is reflected in your body and vice versa.

I am 53 years old and doing my best to thrive through the menopause. Even with a supportive partner, the beautiful sunshine in Spain and a happy fulfilled lifestyle , the menopause can if I let it impact on my personal wellbeing . I work very hard on my physical and mental wellbeing each day through the 6 pillars of Ayurveda to help me and I help other women every day to find that balance and  thrive through this what can be a challenging time in their lives.

Its very important to talk about these issues and through my business Rituals Marbella and the coaching platform Taskhuman , I have the opportunity to speak with women from all over the world about their concerns and the effect menopause has on their daily lives.

  Emotions.

 At a very basic level Emotions are physical sensations associated with mental thoughts.

The quality of you emotions influences the health of your body and and in Ayurveda your emotions are a fundamental pillar of health.

Emotions are your internal guidance system .

 

The 4 A’s of emotional wellbeing.

1)Attention- To be heard and understood

2) Affection-To be loved and cared for.

3) Appreciation-To be noticed for our special and unique qualities .

4) Acceptance-To be accepted

 

The seven Biological responses to unmet needs are.

Flight -flight -freeze 

An instinctual stress resonse putting the body on high alert .

Reactive

Behaving in a way that attempts to control, manipulate or coerce someone else into getting what you want.

Restful awareness

Meditation , key to unlocking the more expanded levels of emotional responses- the nervous system’s experience of deep peace , stillness and going within.

Intuitive 

When your insight and understanding come from within as opposed to the external world .

 

Creative response

Applying a new context or meaning to a situation or circumstance .

 The Visionary response

The visionary response reflects our connection with Archetypes. We all have the potentials to be Gods and Goddesses.

The great leaders and figures in history have recognised and given their lives a vision. We can all access these psychological potentials within us to create new narratives in our lives.

 Sacred response

Our biology is one of calmness and stillness in whatever we experience because we identify at all times with our ground state -pure  consciousness.

 

The vast majority of human beings use only the first two responses on a daily basis . However human beings have been given the incredible gift of choice and free will. While our responses to unmet needs can be automatic and based on instinct to survive , through regular meditation practices we have the ability to shift our ego based internal reference point to a soul based one.
