Walking Reduces Stress During Menopause

More and more women are looking for natural remedies to fight the symptoms of menopause. Physical activity is one way women can stay mentally healthy. Exercise can help to reduce anxiety, stress and depression.

Just by adding a brisk walk during the day, 5 times a week can ease your symptoms. You can walk outdoors, in your local mall or even on your treadmill.

According to a study conducted at Temple University in Philadelphia over an eight year period, found that women who walked briskly 90 minutes a day suffered from fewer effects of menopause than women with a lower level of physical activity.

The study found that exercise reduced levels of stress, anxiety and depression associated with menopause.

382 women participated in this study and the average age was 42.

If you are feeling the effects of menopause, get some exercise and start walking!

Stress management is a very important factor to improve short term memory loss. Stress causes the body to release a hormone called cortisole which blocks the memories from being registered. Since it is a known fact that all women going through early menopause have stress, it is essential to stay positive and stay stress free.
