Hot flushes are one of the most bothersome and common symptoms of menopause, occuring in as many as 75 percent of menopausal women. Certain lifestyle changes can make all the difference though.
- Keep your home and work place cool.
- Wear loose clothing in layers that can be easily removed.
- Drink plenty of water and juice.
- Avoid caffeine, alcohol and spicy foods if they bring on hot flushes.
- Exercise regularly to help stabilise hormones and prevent insomnia.
- Avoid confined spaces and hot, humid weather, if possible.
