Rise above Stressful situations, Hormonal Changes and Buried Trauma

Rise above Stressful situations, Hormonal Changes and Buried Trauma


Many women over 50 may have experienced  trauma that can effect their stress levels. Maybe you are like me. I  discovered more about what was going on inside in a time of transition. This happened for me when I transitioned from working and managing an Early Childhood job to working at a online business. It was also a time of grieving and as I slowed down I had more time to notice skin and gut issues. I began to ask questions and understand more about what was keeping me stuck and unfulfilled in some areas of my life. I realized that as a person who experiences deep emotions and feels the burdens of others I would need some strategies to help me live my best life and the one God has called me to.

Seasons like this can be a difficult time to navigate, but it's important to remember that you are not alone in your struggles. I am still learning this everyday and trusting God more for who is here to help me and who I am meant to help. These are some tips and insights I found helpful to manage stress and find peace during this phase of life.

#1. Take care of your body

Your body is going through a lot of changes, so it's important to take care of it. Eating a healthy diet, drinking water,  exercising regularly, and getting enough sleep can all help to manage the physical symptoms of hormonal changes. Additionally, some women find relief through natural remedies such as herbal supplements or essential oils. I am not a doctor and won't diagnose anything but I am ready to make suggestions that have helped me as well as other women just like you!

#2. Practice self-care

Self-care is crucial during times of stress. It can be easy to get caught up in the demands of daily life, but taking time for yourself can help to reduce stress levels. Find activities that bring you joy, such as reading a book, taking a bath, or going for a walk. You may also find comfort in prayer or meditation on God's word, especially starting your morning connecting with your team Jesus, Abba Father and the Holy Spirit. They can be a great source of strength, joy and peace that only comes from heavenly encounters.

#3. Seek support

It's important to have a support system during times of stress. Reach out to friends and family members who can provide encouragement and understanding. You may also want to consider joining a support group for women going through similar experiences. If you're struggling with stress, consider seeing a counselor who can help you work through your feelings and emotions with prayer and understanding.

#4. Let go of expectations

As women, we often have high expectations for ourselves. We may feel like we need to be perfect or have everything together, but this is simply not realistic. Let go of these expectations and embrace the fact that it's okay to not have everything figured out. Be kind to yourself and give yourself permission to take things one day at a time.

#5. Find meaning

Finding meaning in your life can help to reduce stress levels and bring a sense of purpose. This may involve exploring your faith or spirituality, volunteering for a cause you care about, or finding a hobby that brings you joy. Take time to reflect on what matters most to you and how you can incorporate those values into your daily life.

#6. Practice gratitude

Gratitude is a powerful tool for managing stress and finding joy in life. Take time each day to reflect on the things you are thankful for, whether it's a supportive friend or a beautiful sunset. You may also want to keep a gratitude journal, where you write down a few things each day that you are grateful for.
In conclusion, managing stress during hormonal changes and embedded trauma can be a challenging journey, but there are ways to find peace and comfort. 

Remember to take care of your body, practice self-care, seek support, let go of expectations, find meaning, and practice gratitude. With these tools and the support of your faith, you can navigate this phase of life with grace and strength.
