Foods full of phytoestrogens (plant “estrogens”) can benefit your heart and bones and ease some menopausal irritations. Be sure you’re getting the recommended amounts of calcium, B vitamins and antioxidant vitamins and minerals through food or supplements; you need more of these micronutrients as you age. Midlife is also a good time to finally learn a relaxation technique such as meditation, progressive muscular relaxation or visualization, or take up a pastime that relaxes you. The changes that often occur during this period of life-the empty nest, career disruptions, divorce-can be especially stressful, so it’s worthwhile trying to identify and neutralize sources of negative stress now.
