October marks the start of World Menopause Awareness Month. While at Fit&Well, we share tips, advice, and information all year round, we’re putting the spotlight on the support available to those going through menopause.
The annual event, a collaboration between the International Menopause Society and the World Health Organization (WHO), helps raise awareness of this previously little-discussed part of a woman's life and the options you have for managing the symptoms.
These range from hot flushes and mood swings to changes in libido and memory loss, so it can be an extremely disorientating and overwhelming time, which is why we want to highlight how to reduce the symptoms and make this transition more comfortable. When these symptoms affect your everyday life, we want our readers to feel empowered to find the support and advice they deserve.
Cognition and mood are the theme of this year's Menopause Awareness Month, placing a focus on the mental changes and challenges that people face during menopause. This includes well-known symptoms like mood swings, as well as less talked about symptoms like brain fog.
October 18th, 2022 also marks the focal point of the awareness-raising month; World Menopause Day. We want to keep the conversation going, so throughout the month we'll be sharing everything you need to know about menopause and tips on how to get through it.
