I am coping with menopause and a friend recommended using a health coach through Vida to help with my energy level. Anyone else used this?

When you're making your trip through menopause, staying asleep from sundown to sunset may appear like a unimaginable dream. Regular aerobic exercise can enhance the nature of your sleep, mind-set, and vitality. Before bed, think about taking a cool shower, verify the temperature in your room is agreeable and low. Wear breathable cotton sleepwear, whether you favor pajamas or a nightgown, and pick cotton sheets over synthetic materials. Attempt a relaxation strategy, for example, meditation, yoga, or deep breathing to de-stress.

Since going into menapuse I am not able to get much sleep. I am 56 years old and often times feel so tired by the end of the day that I can hardly go. I don't want to rely on sleeping pills to get me through this. Would love any helpful advice. Thank you Deannie
