The symptoms of Menopause can make us feel like we’re going crazy. Anxiety, depression, trouble with memory, mood swings and loss of sex drive can leave us feeling like we’re not ourselves. Not to mention those pesky night sweats meaning that a good nights sleep feels impossible!
At this time in our lives, self-care is more important than ever. Us ladies spend so much time taking care of everyone else, that it can be easy to forget to look after ourselves.
How about making the goal of 2019 being some self-care? Book yourself on a retreat, just for you! These retreats specialise in midlife and menopause care and are a perfect way to take a step back from everyday life and get the right headspace to navigate the ways your body is changing.
Menopause retreats are set to be big in 2019, so we have gathered some of the best retreats around.
