Are You REALLY ‘Fine’? How to Manage Your COVID-19 Mindset

I don’t know about you, but I am not ‘fine’. I am angry, disappointed, frustrated, bored, hopeful, and probably 12 other emotions, but ‘fine’ isn’t one of them.

How Hormones Affect Women’s Bodies in Ways You Didn’t Realize

6 Reasons Why Alcohol Affects Hormone Balance

For many perimenopausal women, wine is the go-to management strategy to take the edge off negative symptoms (or people).
