Share some hormone health tips for women over 35.
Hello friends! How are you; Hope you are enjoying the day so far! It’s a busy week here. Pilot day was yesterday, P is tomorrow, and today I have a few podcast interviews, lunch with a friend, and a concert tonight 🙂 Hope you’re enjoying the week!
One of the things I often hear with friends and clients is that after you turn 35, things just aren’t the same. Strategies that used to work may feel like they don’t work anymore, metabolism may feel out of whack, sleep may be disturbed and energy levels may decrease.
The good news is that there are things you can do to support your body through the stress you’re experiencing. As our body navigates changes over time, it becomes paramount to enhancing hormonal health for overall well-being.
In today’s post, I wanted to share some key tips and strategies to support hormonal harmony and promote a vibrant, fulfilling life after 35.
Hormone health tips for women over 35
1. Prioritize a Balanced Diet:
Nutrition is the cornerstone of hormonal wellness. Choose a well-rounded diet that includes a variety of nutrient-dense foods. Embrace whole grains, lean proteins, healthy fats and a kaleidoscope of fruits and vegetables. Foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids, such as oily fish, flaxseeds and walnuts, can be especially beneficial for hormonal balance.
2. Conscious Hydration:
Water is not just a basic need. is a fundamental supporter of hormonal health. Stay well hydrated by aiming for at least eight glasses of water a day. Additionally, consider incorporating herbal teas with hormonal benefits, such as chamomile or peppermint, into your routine.
3. Regular exercise:
Exercise is a powerful ally in maintaining hormonal balance. Engage in a wide range of activities including cardiovascular exercises, strength training and flexibility work. Finding activities you truly enjoy ensures consistency, as regular exercise helps manage stress, improve mood, and regulate hormones.
4. Quality of sleep matters:
Adequate, quality sleep is a non-negotiable factor for hormonal health. Try for 7-9 hours of sleep every night. Establish a relaxing bedtime routine, limit screen time before bed, and create an optimal sleep environment. Quality sleep supports the production of growth hormone and helps regulate cortisol levels.
5. Manage stress effectively:
Stress can disrupt the delicate dance of hormonal balance. Incorporate stress management techniques into your daily routine, such as meditation, deep breathing exercises, or mindfulness practices. Experiment with different methods to discover what you like best and make it an integral part of your daily life.
6. Consider hormone testing:
As you navigate milestones beyond 35, staying informed about your hormonal health is empowering. This insight can guide personalized strategies to address specific hormonal imbalances should they arise. I am so excited to be able to work with clients 1:1 in a variety of functional workshops.

7. Supportive supplements:
Certain supplements can complement a healthy lifestyle to support hormonal health. Vitamin D, magnesium and omega-3 supplements are often considered beneficial. However, it’s important to consult with a healthcare provider before incorporating any new supplements into your routine to ensure they align with your individual health needs. Also, it is important to remember that you cannot supplement your lifestyle and habits. They are #1!
8. Cultivate Healthy Relationships:
Social relationships and healthy relationships are important contributors to emotional well-being. Surround yourself with supportive friends and family and actively take care of your emotional health. Positive relationships can have a profound impact on stress levels and overall hormonal balance.
9. Listen to your body:
Your body is a wise communicator. Pay attention to changes in your menstrual cycle, energy levels, mood, and any unusual symptoms. If something bothers you, trust your intuition and don’t hesitate to consult a health professional.
10. Celebrate self-care:
Self-care is not an indulgence. it’s nesessery. Make time for activities that bring you joy and relaxation. Whether you’re reading a book, taking a hot bath, or enjoying a favorite hobby, prioritize self-care to nourish your mind, body, and spirit.
Remember, hormone health is an ongoing journey and these tips are guides along the way.
By embracing these practices and honoring your body’s natural rhythms, you empower yourself to navigate the beautiful progression of womanhood beyond 35. Here’s to radiant health, vibrant energy, and wisdom unfolding with grace each year. <3
