A recent study from the Annals of Behavioral Medicine found that women who walked three times a week... working up to one hour of walking at moderate to high intensity or who praticed yoga for 90 minutes twice a week had fewer hot flashes than those who did not exercise. On days you don't exercise, controlled breathing, the kind of breathing taught in yoga classes might also help. Inhale through your nose for a count of three, then exhale through your mouth for a count of five.
With yoga and walking alternated each week your body and mind will stay fit and healthy with the added benefit of reduced menopausal symptoms. Sounds like a win-win solution! Namaste.
