97: Cold Plunges & Peloton Bikes: The Truth About Health Crazes For Perimenopause

Understanding Perimenopause and its Impact

Perimenopause, often accompanied by a myriad of symptoms, can significantly disrupt not only our health but all aspects of life. From affecting relationships to professional pursuits, perimenopause challenges us to navigate through physical and emotional changes while maintaining balance in our daily roles.

Cold plunges and infrared light therapy, the Pitfalls of Quick Fixes and Health Trends

In a world inundated with health trends and quick fixes, it's easy to fall into the trap of seeking immediate solutions for our well-being. However, as I always emphasize, true health and wellness cannot be achieved through short-term trends or fads. While cold plunges, sauna sessions, and wellness retreats may offer benefits, they cannot replace the foundational aspects of a healthy lifestyle. It's like trying to make good financial investments while not dealing with a truckload of short term debt at high interest rates. You need to be dealing with the short term debt in a decisive way to establish a strong financial strategy. It's no different when it comes to the foundational aspects of health and wellness.

Five Essential Strategies for Health and Wellness

1. Nutrition: Prioritize nourishing your body with regular meals to fuel your day effectively. Remember, supplements are not a substitute for healthy eating habits.

2. Movement: Incorporate daily movement into your routine, even if it's just a short walk or stretching session. Regular physical activity is key to overall well-being.

3. Regulating the Nervous System: Focus on activities that signal safety to your body, such as mindful breathing and gentle movements, to reduce stress and anxiety.

4. Prioritizing Sleep: Establish a nighttime routine that promotes quality sleep, setting boundaries with technology and creating a peaceful environment for rest.

5. Seeking Support: Working with a qualified health professional can enhance the effectiveness of your lifestyle changes and provide valuable guidance on your health journey.

The Importance of a Health Strategy

Just as we develop business strategies for growth and success, having a well-thought-out health strategy is essential for women in business. Balancing both business and health priorities is akin to pedaling a bike with two pedals – both are crucial for sustained progress and well-being.


As we navigate the ups and downs of perimenopause and strive to maintain optimal health, let's remember the significance of laying a strong foundation for our well-being. By focusing on nutrition, movement, stress management, sleep, and seeking support, we can empower ourselves to thrive through this transformative phase of life.

Remember, your health is a long-term investment that requires dedication and consistency. Let's prioritize building a healthy foundation that will support us not only during perimenopause but throughout our lives.

Join me on this journey of self-care and empowerment as we navigate perimenopause together. Your health and wellness matter – let's build a strong foundation for a vibrant and fulfilling life.
