Hot flushes, and night sweats, experienced at the time of menopause can be overwhelming, especially when the weather heats up. Women report that during the day in summer time, it’s difficult to cool down between flushes, and the short bursts of sleep they do get are interspersed by thermal surges during the night, leaving them feeling anxious, exhausted and foggy headed by morning.
There are many tools, acknowledged through research, designed to address the thermal issues and calm anxiety, but most of them take time to kick in. Whether your choice to journey through menopause includes HRT, or adding hormone influencing foods and supplements to your regime, to fool the brain into thinking that normal hormone levels are circulating, it’s likely that it will be awhile before the results are apparent.
Research does show that we can reduce flushes by up to 60 percent by doing a formal session of relaxation each day. But, busy minds often find it hard to switch off and many women find it difficult to meditate. The Pzizz programme, which is a science based power-napping App, including a sleep programme, does it all for us. It’s designed to take us into a deep relaxed state and programmed to bring us out the other end, feeling calmer and cooler; a bit like a phone that’s been plugged in for a recharge.
It sounds unbelievable, but it works and menopause women are loving it.
"I use it everyday...helps me sort myself out", says Jackie, one of our boot camp participants.
"At first I was skeptical, but now I am a believer", states Julie another boot camp participant. "It is a wonderful pick-me-up during a stressful day."
So how does it work?
Pzizz combines several different proven techniques to give you the most refreshing and revitalising nap possible. It is a blend of Neuro Linguistic Programming and cognitive behaviour therapy, with specially composed music, sound effects and a beat that induces a wonderfully relaxed state. There are so many ‘Dreamscapes’ to choose from. For example, you can elect to be transported to a beach, the mountains, the Cosmos or the valleys with cascading waterfalls. You can vary the length of the session and create a tailor-made programme every time. It also comes with a sleep programme that helps to train you to have quality restful sleep.
The Pzizz app goes everywhere your phone does so you can literally take time out and use it anywhere. My patients say it’s life changing and I feel the same way. So much so, I managed to sweet talk the company into offering an 80% discount! So now, when you enter the code BESTPZIZZ it will only cost you £19.99 for a whole year!
I often use mine after a hard day’s work before going out in the evening. Just 20 minutes with Pzizz gives me the same feeling as a two-hour nap.
Relaxation and making time for yourself is clearly important if you want to feel cool, calm and present. Pzizz makes it so easy for us to achieve this. Just click her to get yours and don’t forget to enter the discount code. Enjoy!
