What habits should we form to take care of ourselves on a daily basis?

How do you take care of your psychological and emotional well-being during menopause?
Like any transition in life, especially when your hormonal balance is disrupted, menopause can be stressful. During this period, I take care of myself by maintaining regular physical activity, I adapt my lifestyle and, above all, I remember I’m not
alone with my questions and doubts. If I live confidently, menopause is an opportunity to lay the foundations for a lifestyle in which my well-being comes first. All imaginable possibilities are open to me!
Can you start exercising at any age?
There is no age limit for starting physical activity. The health benefits are the same whether you start at 20 or after 40! To begin exercising again, I choose an activity that I enjoy, and I make sure I warm up properly and give my body time to recover. I go at my own pace, perhaps with the help of a coach.

Why is adopting healthy habits a good way to stay healthy?
A habit is no longer an effort, but a reflex, which requires much less energy and makes you feel better. Take stock of your existing habits to add new healthy rituals and make sure you stick to them: hydration, nutrition, sleep, exercise: it’s up to you to find your own!
How do you find the time to exercise?
If exercising is important to me, I consider it as important as my personal and professional appointments. I intersperse physical activity with
other parts of my daily life to maximise any downtime and take every opportunity I have to exercise.
When can you say you are healthy?
The definition of health varies throughout life and depends on each person, their desires, their age, their experience, and
other factors. To remain in good health, we can take control of three elements: nutrition, sleep and physical activity. Well-
being and living conditions are also essential criteria for feeling good and being able to fulfil your dreams.
How can I stop being self-critical and love myself as I am?
To stop being self-critical, I surround myself with constructive people. I listen to my own needs, without letting myself be influenced by others or comparing myself to them. I learn to know myself better so that I know what makes me feel good and I let go of negative emotions and replace them with more positive ones. By making this contract with myself, I move forward each day as best I can toward the achievement of my goals.
