From Elaine Morrison, Founder of Elaine Wellness and Creator of The Midlife Blueprint
Dear Friend …
Are you going through menopause or perimenopause?
Perhaps you’re worried about what’s happening to your body and you’re not sure where to turn.
Maybe menopause is overtaking your thoughts, your life, and your soul. Maybe you’re feeling ready and prepared … or maybe you’re not.
Whatever your current feelings about this, you have an important decision to make.
You can think, “I’ll just let this happen and take what I get” … or … you can decide to be proactive and make this time positive, fun, and powerful … for you, a partner, and your entire family.
If you’re ready for the latter, then I encourage you to stay with me for a few minutes and discover more about The Midlife Blueprint.
We’re Now Talking About Menopause … Which Is A Good Thing …
Until recently, menopause was something we never talked about. Yes … many women had a conversation with their doctor or maybe a close friend. But it was rare for women to get together collectively to share their thoughts, fears, and success stories.
That’s all changing … thankfully.
Women are now openly talking about menopause … and they’re discovering it’s a transition that’s manageable and even inspirational.
A Community of Like-Minded Women
I’m Elaine Morrison. I’m a Pilates Instructor and the creator of The Midlife Blueprint. I live in Los Angeles, California.
And I just went through menopause.
As soon as I started going through this transition, I discovered the following:
This can be a lonely place ...
It’s extremely difficult to get accurate and reliable information about menopause and perimenopause … even though there’s a lot of information out there on the Internet.
Doctors and other medical professionals can help … but they can only do so much … especially in a 15-minute appointment.
Many women feel dismissed or even ignored during this transition.
The most difficult part might be finding the right guidance about diet and exercise and its impact on this time of your life.
As I went through menopause, I was starting to notice major changes in every part of my life. But I was deeply committed to maintaining my health, my fitness, my looks, plus my emotional and mental health. I’m sure you’re the same way.
So I started reading and researching like crazy.
I made changes based on what I discovered and based on what worked. Trust me … some things I tried did not work.
Once I felt like I was making progress and was turning this time into a powerful transition, I started to share my experiences with friends.
Well … one thing led to another and I was encouraged to try to help as many women as possible. I created a community and information resource I called The Midlife Blueprint.
Before I describe how The Midlife Blueprint can help you navigate menopause, let’s go through what medical science says about menopause.
In my experience there are lots of misconceptions about how this impacts a woman’s health and wellbeing. A good starting point is understanding the facts about this transition.
