    I pray and read my bible and attend church regularly without these activities I couldn't make it through peri.

    The thing that kept  me sane and watching out for myself is prayer. Never stop praying. You'll receive solutions in mysterious ways when you pray.

    Hi Jules - I misread this! But as I have typed them here are my Tips for Peri and Menopause, they are not spiritual, but on the natural side as I wish more women would celebrate the change, and hopefully the spiritual side will help many to face the challenges of our changing bodies! Pray, chant, meditate, whatever - but look after yourselves!

    * Be positive - your patience will be tested!

    * Watch your weight - food you ate last year will now sit on your bum and hips and losing 1LB will be a major hurdle 

    * Watch your pelvic floor - as we age we produce less hormones and this can lead to a slowing of our system including constipation, take the strain off your pelvic floor and get a toilet stool to get your body in the correct angle when pooping.

    * Lose the alcohol - your body will struggle to tolerate it I'm afraid, but the rewards are worth it!

    * Hot Flushes/Hot Flashes - these are a power surge of inspiration, use them. They bring clarity to the mind - harness them!

    * Change your skin routine, menopasal skin needs more collagen and gets dry quickly, buy skincare products for older skin! They are formulated for our needs

    * Hair - buy special products to help with thiining hair, and always condition after a wash.

    * Exercise - walk, talk, and laugh - essential

    * If you suffer vaginal dryness invest in a cream to help you, it is miserable. Look a slow releas suppositories that last 2 - 3 days at a time.

    * Support one another - always

      Hi Stephanie while many of these things are true, I diagree with one you mention. Still I had to continuously pray that my hormones would not make me go insane & that I have the patience to endure all emotional bouts of crying and helplessness I was feeling. As for hot flashes, I was soaking the bed, changing 2 times at night how can anyone think of it giving inspiration? If you haven't been through it you wouldn't know how horrible it is.

      I say do whatever it takes to spiritually connect with your higher self to help overcome some of the horrible symptoms that we don't expect to experience until it happens.
