Making menopause misery a thing of the past with Karen Briggs|E194

If you’re between 45 and 55, chances are life is throwing you the odd curveball or two. 

The classic scenario is waking up in the middle of the night and throwing off the duvet because you feel like you’re sweating your way through the Sahara Desert. But if you’re also experiencing heart palpitations, joint pain, dry eyes, weight gain, brain fog, anxiety or even depression, you’ll know that perimenopause is no picnic. 

It’s why we’re releasing the recording of the workshop Karen Briggs gave at our recent (and awesomesauce) Festival of Inspiration. 

Because there are 13 million menopausal women in the UK and, like Karen and her sister Sarah who co-founded the menopause support network Mentrix, we want this to be the last generation of women that struggles through this phase of life without the information they need at their fingertips. 

Here’s why you should tune in

Discover the physical, mental and emotional symptoms of menopause and the lifestyle changes Karen made to combat them. Learn why menopause is on our radar now and what the government is doing to help. And hear Karen’s 6 top tips on managing your menopause symptoms. 

Here’s what to listen out for:

[00:55] Are you experiencing these perimenopausal symptoms?

[01:48] The lifestyle changes Karen made to help her through menopause. 

[05:19] What exactly is menopause? 

[08:10] What are the symptoms of menopause? 

[10:43] Why are we only talking about menopause now?
