Poor sleep patterns during menopause

Menopuase can disrupt  your sleep pattern.  This is mainly due to the changes in hormones. You may find yourself waking up a few times during the night and having poor quality sleep, making it more difficult to cope with the pressures of the day and your other menopausal symptoms.

Tips for getting a good nights sleep

Look for triggers

Sometimes, other menopausal symptoms can have a negative impact on your sleep.  If this is the case, try addressing these to see if it can make a difference.

If anxiety is keeping you awake at night, try incorporating meditation or breathing exercises into your bedtime routine.  CBD Oil may also help to ease anxiety levels.

If you are waking with night sweats there are certain products that can help reduce these – please refer to our hot flushes and night sweats advice sheet here.

Adopt a Bedtime Routine

Adopting a bedtime ritual that includes a relaxing bath, and a calming warm drink, can be really beneficial to your quality of sleep. The Menodelight Sleep Ritual Trial Pack promotes a relaxing routine, to get your mind, and body, ready for that all-important night’s sleep.

Exercise

Although exercise may be the last thing on your mind when you are feeling tired after a sleepless night but it really can help.  Participating in regular exercise 3-4 times a week can have a positive impact on your quality of sleep.  For ideas and motivation to help get you started view our Fitness Guru, Katie Morris’ page  here.
