Because life doesn't pause during menopause.

Weekly Be Wise Check-In

Weekly Be Wise Check-In
These questions help keep me centered and resourceful,  and they remind me to be compassionate with myself.

It’s the weekend, and I’m doing my weekly check-in. I want to share a part of my process, because it might be helpful to those of you who are in menopause.

When we are in menopause, it’s so important to treat ourselves with care and compassion.

These questions help keep me centered and resourceful,  and they remind me to be compassionate with myself.

  • How much am I remembering that this life transition is a journey, and that I am a hero?
  • How well am I managing the stress of my life transition?
  • What non-essentials (inner and outer) did I let go, this week?
  • How am I using my inner compass to find my way?
  • How have I allowed the energy and power of my true self to support me?
  • How have I claimed the authority of my own voice and truth?
  • In what ways am I making my unique contribution to my world?

It’s important to do this check-in with no self-judgement, just curiosity. Be compassionate with yourself when you ask these questions.

The answers will provide you with at least two important things:

  1. Celebration! Savor and appreciate what you are doing well, how you are nourishing yourself.
  2. What can you tweak for the next week, that will help support you even more?

HotFlashDaily.com was created in the spirit of making every day your very best, even when you just don’t feel like it.

The site was conceived and built through the combined efforts of contributing bloggers, technicians, and impassioned women who believe the way we treat ourselves is a direct reflection of how we feel about ourselves.

We’re looking for true short stories for the website, and perhaps for inclusion in an e-book, from women who want to tell others about their experiences with peri-menopause, menopause, and beyond. We’re looking for experiences, ups/downs/unexpected highs and lows, sticky situations, “what I wish I’d known”, “what I’d tell my younger self”.. you name it!

Submissions should be first-person posts written in a blogging, editorial, or columnist style WITHOUT commercial links.
