Blog Title: How to Balance Your Hormones in Just 5 Steps
Blog Introduction: Let’s face it, moms over 40—balancing hormones can be tricky. One minute you’re feeling great, the next you’re feeling completely overwhelmed. But don’t worry! I have some tips to help you balance your hormones without leaving your house. Read on for five simple steps to help get your hormones back in check!
#1 Get Adequate Sleep
This one should come as no surprise. Getting enough sleep is one of the most important things you can do when it comes to regulating your hormones. Aim for seven to eight hours each night, and if that isn’t possible, take regular naps throughout the day. A good night's rest will ensure that all of your body functions are working as they should be and that your hormones are balanced.
#2 Exercise Regularly
Regular exercise is essential for hormone balance because it helps reduce stress levels and encourages a healthy metabolism. Whether it’s going for a walk around the block or doing yoga at home, make sure you schedule some “me time” into your daily routine to boost your mood and keep your hormones in check. Bonus: exercise will also help you sleep at night!
#3 Eat Clean & Balanced Meals
The food we eat has a huge effect on our overall health and well-being, including our hormonal health. Eating clean and balanced meals throughout the day will help keep your metabolism running smoothly and give you more energy throughout the day. Try to incorporate plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, and healthy fats into every meal for best results!
#4 Reduce Stress Levels
Stress can have a major impact on our body's ability to produce hormones correctly, so it's important to take measures to reduce stress levels whenever possible. Meditation is a great way to do this, as is spending time outdoors or with friends who bring positivity into your life. Taking breaks throughout the day can also help keep stress levels down so that you can focus on other tasks more effectively.
#5 Take Supplements
Taking supplements is necessary to get all of the nutrients your hormones need for balance (especially if following a vegan diet). The supplements which are beneficial in order to achieve optimal hormonal health are sulfur (I choose a whole food MSM supplement), Vitamins B, C and D, omegas and plant based bio-identical progesterone.
