The lack of sleep is a crazy-making thing, especially if you’re a woman of a certain age.
It worsens anxiety and ruminating thoughts – like, “I need to get a grip.”
Which pushes you to work even harder to avoid the chaos of uncompleted to-do lists, meaning you end up ratty and radioactive, not to mention over-caffeinated till the nightly wine brings you down again.
Then heap on the pandemic and Zoom fatigue.
Doesn’t bode well, does it?
If this sounds familiar, there’s help.
Dr Bella Smith is back for a 20-minute bonus episode, specifically for peri- and menopausal women and sleep. Or lack thereof.
She explains why we’re vulnerable to sleep disruption during the “perfect storm” of peri-menopause.
She gives us tips from a GP, and shares what to try if you are utterly desperate with sleeplessness.
It’s not you, it’s your hormones.
Get a blankie and press play.
