WWC – How to Navigate Menopause with Ease_Pt 3

Episode #82 – How to Navigate Menopause with Ease_Pt 3

In this week’s episode of the Wise Women Conversations Podcast I am sharing the final Pillar in navigating menopause with ease. This is all about your mindset and beliefs around ageing and menopause. Your belief systems will play a significant role in the way in which you are able to move through this time of life. If you believe that menopause will be a struggle then this is likely how you will experience it.
It is possible to move through this time of life with relatively few symptoms, I know because I did it and many of my clients have as well. Even if you are currently experiencing symptoms such as weight gain, hot flushes, sleep issues plus more by following the 5 steps that I have been sharing you will find that this can be a truly wonderful time of life.

WWC – Going AF with Mitle Southey

Episode #81 – Going AF with Mitlè Southey

When I first heard the term going AF, I wasn’t sure what it meant until I asked Mitlè Southey to explain it to me. In this episode of Wise Women Conversations we chat about being alcohol free (AF), I am not sure why we need another label but here we are. Mitlè shares her journey with alcohol and how she got to the stage where she considers herself to be AF.

I also don’t drink alcohol, I stopped drinking it 2 years ago because I was sick of being in constant pain. Once I stopped the small amount of alcohol that I was drinking all of my body and muscle pain went away. I don’t really miss the alcohol and I also don’t miss the constant chatter in my head about whether I will drink or not on a night out, Mitlè talks about this in our conversation.

Alcohol has serious impacts on our health and wellbeing, yet many women are reluctant to give it up. Society has taught us that we can turn to alcohol in the good times and the bad, in the happy times and the sad. Listen to this open conversation between Mitlè and me and make up you own mind about your relationship with alcohol.

WWC – Intimacy and Menopause

Episode #79 – Intimacy and Menopause

In this week’s episode of Wise Women Conversations I am talking with Janet McGeever who is the Co-Author of Tantric Sex and Menopause (with Diana Richardson). This was a beautiful conversation with Janet gently sharing how it is possible to be intimate after menopause despite the changes that happening in our body’s. Janet’s book and this conversation is about relearning what we think we know about intimate relationships. She shares the importance of understanding energy, receiving and giving, when it comes to intimacy.

I really enjoyed this conversation with Janet, her voice is so gentle and she holds space while we talk about a topic that can be a sensitive one for many women. I thoroughly enjoyed reading her book and had many ahha moments as I was reading through. There is so much that we can still learn about intimate relationships, things that are completely different to what we have learnt in the past.

I hope that you enjoy this conversation and if you would like to learn more about Janet you can visit her website www.janetmcgeever.com or www.makingloveretreat.com.au. You can also find Janet on facebook and instagram as @janetmcgeever.

I would love you to leave us a review about what you thought about this conversation, let me know what you think. The more reviews that the podcast gets the more it will show up in the various podcast platforms search options. I will be back next week with another Wise Women Conversations.

WWC – The Power of Laughter

Episode #77 – The Power of Laughter

This week’s episode of Wise Women Conversations was a fun one when I had Bron Roberts who is a Laughter Yoga Teacher. I had heard of laughter yoga before but I wanted to find out more. Bron shares the years when she lost her laughter and what she did to get it back. Bron also found that laughter got her through some tough times when her Mother was very sick.
There was so much fun and laughter throughout this episode particularly when Bron shares the story of the time she turned “crazy old lady” to get a flight upgrade. Bron has so many fun stories to share and she is proud of her “crazy old lady” status.
You will also learn a quick exercise to help you start laughing, follow along with Bron and I guarantee no matter what mood you are in, you will very quickly feel your mood lift as you experience the healing effect of laughter.

WWC – Improving Brain Health

Episode #76 – Looking After Your Brain as You Age

Many women are afraid of deteriorating brain health as they age, this is particularly significant for women who have had a parent with dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease. This week is Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness week so I thought I would talk about what you an do to improve your brain health and reduce your risk of neuro-cognitive diseases.

I share with you 10 things that you can do to reduce your risk of Alzheimer’s Disease or dementia. The earlier that you address these 10 things the more likely you will remain healthy and alert as you grow older. It is believed that there is a window of opportunity between 40 and 50 where women can prevent the progression of neuro-degeneration.

We know that women are more likely to experience neuro-degeneration than men and now there is research being done to see the role that menopause plays as well. This research is showing that there is a hormonal switch that occurs as oestrogen starts to drop that increases the risk of Alzheimer’s Disease. That doesn’t mean that there is nothing that you an do to protect your brain.

Listen to the entire episode to learn the 10 steps that you can take, you will find that they are very similar to the steps that I often talk about when it comes to navigating menopause with ease.
Please share this episode with another women who you think would benefit from learning more about improving her brain health as she ages. Also let me know in the comments what you are going to do to improve your brain health or ask me any questions that you might have.
 
The brand new Thrive in Menopause Membership is currently open. There are 20 Founding Member spaces available at $25/mth or $250/yr, once these spaces are taken the price will be going up. To find out more or to join the membership click HERE

WWC – Stepping into Midlife with Confidence

Episode #75 – Stepping into Midlife

In this week’s episode of Wise Women Conversations I am honoured to welcome Deb Johnstone as my guest. A few weeks ago shared an interview that I did with Deb for her Re-Inventing Midlife Summit so I thought it was time for me to have her as a guest to share her wisdom.
As a Life Coach who works with women as they reach their midlife, Deb has a lot of wisdom to share. Deb helps women who are feeling lost and confused to get clarity and confidence to step into the next phase of their life.

WWC – Time to Sleep

Episode #74 Time to Sleep

Sleep is one of the most common issues that concerns women as the move through menopause. As your progesterone levels drop you can find yourself having problems with your sleep but it is not only progesterone that can cause issues with your sleep. Your sleep habits play a very big role and many people have unhealthy sleep habits.

This week’s episode of the Wise Women Conversations Podcast is a recording of a facebook live that I did during the recent 7 Day Hormone reset that I ran. In this recording I provide an overview about sleep cycles and what impacts them plus I also share some simple things you can do to support healthy sleep cycles so that you wake refreshed.
