Menopause and the work environment

Did you know that 47.7% of the global workforce are women? Some interesting statistics in the article.

Every woman will experience the menopause in their lifetime and something that needs to be talked about in a positive and helpful way. As the article mentions, a Menopause Policy is a start but it’s how this can be implemented daily for women experiencing challenges within the workplace when dealing with the menopause.

Severe brain fog, lack of concentration and anxiety have been some of the cognitive symptoms I’ve experienced myself and anything that can help women stay in the workplace should be encouraged. Years of experience, knowledge and wisdom are attributes that don’t just happen overnight, so supporting women at this time of life is a win, win situations for all.

Take a look at our Yoga section on the website where Menopause Yoga could be of benefit.
