I am working with many women at the moment managing the hormonal wave it could be the PMS wave or Peri Menopause wave or Menopause wave and when it comes it can feel like it’s crashing over you.
I feel those waves too and during this phase of my life they really are coming more frequently so I truly empathise.
The thing a lot of us do (myself included) is try and fight the wave. Imagine if you were struggling to swim and someone came over and rather than helping you added a coat it would be heavy wouldn’t it and harder to swim, that’s what we do to ourselves sometimes, we add a coat
of negative self talk
of body shame
And all we do is sink harder and find it harder to swim
Imagine flipping on your back when the wave next comes and doing a star shape
trusting it will pass
being kinder to yourself
knowing it’s not your fault
talking to others about how you feel
releasing your emotions
accepting you are human
The wave is still there, I wish I could remove it believe me but instead of fighting it and getting exhausted you ride it, you float knowing it will pass
If you are finding the waves hard let your friends and family know, seek support and if you would like to know more about working with me and how I can help you navigate the waves just get in touch
We got this my darling, being a woman can be tough but so are we
