What to avoid to help menopause anxiety
Step away from the biscuit tin. That chocolate cookie may give you a blood sugar boost but for every up there’s a down! Processed foods cause blood sugar surges and drops, which will increase those feelings of anxiety.
Anxiety and alcohol don’t mix
Alcohol is a depressant, and although we sometimes use it to help us relax, in reality it may exacerbate anxiety.
Go caffeine free
Caffeine is a stimulant that can make you feel jittery and more anxious. Black and green tea, cola and energy drinks all contain caffeine. Drink naturally caffeine-free herbal teas instead, such as peppermint, camomile and ginger.
