Coping with Hot Flashes During the Summer Months

Here comes the summers, and we all know how we manage to cope with it normally in the UAE. Now imagine having a hot flash in this heat, you just feel like moving up to the North Pole then, don’t you? To be honest ‘hot flashes‘ and ‘summer’ are two words when used in a sentence can actually be dreadful, but here I am to make it a little less dreadful. Yes! Thank God, we need not to hibernate, there are ways to manage hot flashes during summer and here is how


Keep those Triggers away

If you like your coffee with cake in the morning, or grabbing a small dessert after dinner, then it’s extremely important for you to rethink your lifestyle choices. We know that caffeine, alcohol, refined sugars and smoking are super triggers but recognizing how hot flashes affect you personally is a great start toward finding relief. Try charting your symptoms to pinpoint your personal hot flash triggers. This chart will help you accurately and easily communicate how you are feeling to your menopause specialist.


No Stressing and Obsessing

I can’t say it enough but reduce stress in your life! Not only can stress lead to high blood pressure and heart attacks in women, it also can increase hot flashes. Now if this isn’t a red flag then I don’t know what is! Take advantage of opportunities to “chill out” during the summer. Hang out in a hammock. Bury yourself in a book (not the sand) at the beach. Go to an outdoor yoga class. Do anything that takes your mind off stress.
