6 Reasons Why Post Menopause May Be The Best Time Of Your Life
Did you know that life post-menopause is actually one of natures best kept secrets? A time when women feel more empowered, sexy and free than any other time? Whilst experiencing the menopause can be a time of physical and emotional toll for women, there is light at the end of the tunnel - in fact, the up-sides of getting through the menopause are plentiful. So here are our top reasons why life after the menopause may just the be the best time of your life:
No more periods:
It is estimated that a woman has around 500 periods in her life. That is a lot of cramps, headaches, bloating and PMS to contend with. Well, with the menopause comes a freedom from this physical and mental toll on us women. If that isn’t something to be celebrated, I don’t know what is!
Many women experience a rush of energy after menopause, making it the perfect time to take stock of their lives and use this new-found energy to ensure their lives are working for them. Many women use this time to put their best foot forwards; change career, move somewhere they have always wanted to live or prioritise the things they truly love in life. After years of putting everyone else first, this is a genuinely liberating moment in a womans life!
Research has shown that not only does optimism have benefits for physical and mental health, but that this optimism peaks in a woman’s 50’s. In fact, 8 out of 10 women say that they have a sense of freedom not experienced before, which means they are able to live their lives in a way that works for them. This optimism contributes to better health and a positive mental attitude.
Without the fear of pregnancy, many women find themselves feeling more sexually liberated than ever before. Over 70% of women post-menopause feel that they are as- or more attractive as pre-menopause and feel an average of 10 years younger than their actual age. These factors combine to make a women throw their previous inhibitions to the wind and have a more fulfilling sex life than ever before.
Many women have more freedom than ever before. They are financially more secure than in their 20’s or 30’s, with a declining responsibility for their now independent children. This makes it the perfect time to throw caution to the wind and take that trip of a lifetime, move house, change career or start that hobby they have always wanted to.
A great excuse to revamp that wardrobe:
As a womans body changes, so should her wardrobe. And there is no better time than now. Taking advantage of new-found confidence and energy, it is definitely a good time to ensure that your wardrobe matches your attitude. We have previously written about the body changes that happen during the menopause, meaning that you may need different sized or style underwear. But this doesn’t mean you have to compromise on style. There has never been a better time to revamp your wardrobe and feel sexier than ever - you definitely deserve it!
So if you are currently struggling with the symptoms of menopause, it may be that you have the best time of your life just around the corner.
