Like many women my age, I am on the journey towards menopause. Being an only child and having left home before my mother went through the change, it’s literally been one big surprise after another. (It’s like being a pre-teen all over again…)
One thing that’s been of great value to me, (aside from all the books I’ve read) is to take notes about all of what I’ve been experiencing. Keeping track like this for over two years, I am now able to recognize patterns, which has been really helpful- especially since brain fog is a common effect of shifting hormones.
I’m already noting the supplements I’m taking, dietary choices would probably be helpful to note as well. I also keep track of my exercise habits, though not within this same format.
Do you use a notebook or journal to keep track of health related issues? Has it been helpful? Would you recommend the process to others?
