Tips for Managing ADHD and Menopause

In last month’s blog, we chatted about ADHD and Menopause – how it impacts us. If you missed it, check out that blog HERE. I promised to bring you some tips for managing ADHD and Menopause so here those tips are!




Learn As Much As Possible

The more you know about how ADHD and menopause are impacting your life, the easier it will be for you to find ways to cope with struggles.



Seek Professional Help

You may want to check in with your medical professionals. They may want to rule out other issues like thyroid troubles or other medical reasons for hormonal fluctuations. Make sure you know exactly what you are dealing with. Your providers may have options available to support you.



Medication Management

If necessary and desired, your doctor may advise a new or updated prescription, or other other the counter medications or supplements. There are medications available with doctors advice to help with issues like mood fluctuations and sleep disturbances.



Mind Your Core Four

Rest, Nourishment, Hydration, and Movement – make sure you are minding your Core Four.



Stress Management

Implementing stress management techniques may help you relax, unwind, and allow your hormones to settle down. Our bodies hold a significant amount of previous stress and trauma inside, so utilizing techniques to help this allows us to be more centered and grounded.




Routines can help with brain fog – having routines makes it less likely we will forget an important step because it’s such an ingrained habit. If you put your keys in the same place every day, it’s likely you will do that without thinking, even when your brain is foggy.



Prioritize Self Care

This isnt’ always possible, I get it. Life is busy, we have people who depend on us. Sometimes self care feels like a stretch.  It doesn’t have to be spa days, although take those too if you can get them. It means – say no when you are at capacity. Be kind to yourself. Ask for help when needed. Hold boundaries that prioritize your mental and emotional well being. You deserve it.
