Menopause Symptoms - Disruptive Sleep

What is causing disruptive sleep during menopause?

The menopausal decline of estrogen contributes to disrupted sleep by causing menopausal symptoms from hot flushes and sweats (vasomotor symptoms), to anxiety and depressed mood. Anxiety can lead to difficulty in getting to sleep. Depression can lead to non-restorative sleep and early morning wakening. All of this will have a knock-on effect on your mood.


Top tips to help with Disruptive Sleep:

  • Design a bed time routine

  • Keep the bed room ventilated

  • Exercise more

  • Look at your food choices

  • Avoid caffeine in the afternoon

  • Definitely lifestyle choices
