Menopause Tips – How to Sleep Better

Menopause Tips – How to Sleep Better.

One of the most frustrating symptoms of menopause is hot flashes. Commonly, they lead to sleep disruptions and insomnia.

Fluctuating hormones are the trigger for hot spells. In the middle of the night, this can cause you to wake in drenching sweat and the inability to resume a restful night’s sleep. If this happens frequently, insomnia can take over, and anxiety can rise when it comes to bedtime.

If this sounds familiar to you, thankfully, there are various methods to help you regain control of your sleep during this changing time.

Below we’ve compiled a list of the top 8 ways to help you sleep better if hot flashes wake you up at night. Read on to find the solutions to your problem and get a peaceful night’s rest.

Create A Virtual Learning Classroom At Home

Create A Virtual Learning Classroom At Home. Millions of children are homeschooling. And unless parents have unlimited funds, thinking “out of the box” when it comes to creating a home schooling environment for their child is a must. It’s not only about finding a desk and chair, “self regulation” is also key for a homeschool space.  The term self regulate refers to a person’s ability to adjust and control their energy level, emotions, behavior and attention. In other words, if our kids are focused, anchored and happy learning from home, then we parents can focus on our work as well.

How To Design the Best Healthy Vegan Home

How To Design the Best Healthy Vegan Home🧚‍♀️ We all want to be happy, healthy and strong don’t we?  We don’t wake up in the morning and shout out “today, I want to be sad, weak and unmotivated!” It’s scientifically proven that most of us crave positivity. Of course we do!  However, we still seek confirmation from the world of science. I recall years ago when  “baloney sandwiches are bad for your health!” made headlines. REALLY??  I had absolutely no  idea that chemically injected, processed, dyed animal meat byproducts weren’t part of an ideal diet for humans! Shocking! Btw, i had to look up the spelling of baloney. Yes it’s been that long since I ate a baloney sandwich. I think the last time was when I was a kid in summer camp. Back to “how to design the best healthy vegan home.” Watch this recorded webinar I did for the fabulous EGE Carpet Showroom in London about the subject (of vegan design..not baloney sandwiches 😏).
