Are you feeling the changes already?
If you are already 40 or older, you are probably already feeling the big difference in your physical capabilities and mental abilities as when you were younger.
While aging is an inevitable part of our lives, there is no need to fret. Fortunately, there are effective ways to manage the changes and improve your quality of life.
Many studies have shown that women are more vulnerable to depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues. One of the main reasons is our hormones.
We have years and years of practice riding the dragon of oestrogen, yet we are still learning and coping. These hormones greatly affect our everyday lives, our relationships, our work, and our ability to manage stress.
It really does suck!
A lot of demands in womanhood are also factors that trigger the surfacing of mental health concerns. If you are a mom, you know that too well.
The rise and falls in oestrogen and progesterone can make one irritable, highly anxious, and uneasy. Many of these changes occur due to menopause, stress, and lifestyle.
Ever feel like asking: "God what did we do to deserve the menopause"!!
So, What Are The Common Mental Health Issues of Women?
While this is a common issue for both genders, women are twice as likely to experience it as men. This is due to the higher amounts of testosterone levels in men which are known to be a natural anti-depressant. The diagnosis rate in women is far higher for severe anxiety disorder.
Because of hormonal fluctuations, many women aged 40 and above suffer with increased mood swings. This shift in mood can also be caused by stress, psychiatric conditions, and (again) menopause. Hormones have a powerful effect on women’s brain chemistry and mood.
Sleeping like a baby will be harder for people aged 40 and above. It plagues women in middle age, especially those transitioning into (Grrr) menopause. Their sleep quality declines, but there are ways to combat this unwanted symptom.
When our bodies starts to wear down, it is hard to keep up. This can cause depression and extreme sadness in women over 40. Sadness and stress can accelerate aging. It is can feel like a never-ending loop. If the mental health condition is not properly addressed, it can be debilitating, or even worse.
