I think it is so important that those of us going through Perimenopause draw on the insights and experiences of women Post Menopause. Hence, I was delighted to have as my guest Charlotte Bauer Journalist and Author of the funny and thought-provoking "How to Get Over Being Young."
In this insightful and deeply personal episode, Charlotte shares with me her experience of Menopause and the seismic changes it bought.
We discuss the importance, of giving our 'younger' selves a proper send-off, acknowledging that change is happening and welcoming in the next phase of our lives.
How do we get rid of the old standard of Menopause? The stereotype of the middle-aged women hot flushing and forgetful. How do we educate the world to see Menopause as so much more in-depth, the urgent need for it to be taken seriously and with respect. It is "complex and life-changing."
We also manage to fit in the important relationships that have shaped Charlotte's life, her incredible role models when it comes to ageing - her mother and aunt. And the complicated but unconditional bond she has with her sisters.
And let's not forget the benefits of designer trainers and why we all need a 'F**k It' List because we are way too young for a Bucket List.
