How to Battle Career Menopause

Sad businesswomanA Work in Progress:

Throughout our lives, it’s inherent in our nature to question our purpose in life.  It’s natural for us to wonder whether or not we’re taking the right steps towards achieving that in which we view as success. As years fold into decades, it seems harder and harder to wash away our worries and concerns. It seems that our fears and apprehensions have precipitated into our daily lives,  making it more difficult to complete day-to-day tasks. We reach a certain age where death becomes an imminent reality – our hopes become eclipsed by the shadows of mortality. We don’t feel like ourselves anymore. We feel as if there’s something missing in our lives, we feel incomplete. As we age, our bodies begin to change, and as our bodies change, so do our values, our goals and our idea of success. We’re constantly changing who we are, improving who we are and shaping the person who we want to be.

A Mid-Career Crisis:

Career menopause is a term used to describe the frustration and restlessness experienced by men and women in their careers. Although our careers are an integral part of what we do, we can’t use our careers to define who we are. The only thing we fear more than change is permanence. We’re afraid that our careers will eventually plateau – we fear that all the joy and pleasure that we used to get out of our career has been sucked dry.

What You Can Do:

So what’s to blame for career menopause? Be it a mid-life crisis or a mid-career plateau, the anxiety, heart palpitations, night sweats and mood swings are all a direct result of hormonal imbalance. Hormonal imbalances affect millions of men and women each year, many unknowingly. The good news is hormonal balance is not a disease and it can be corrected with proper attention and specialized treatments. One of the most natural and effective ways to treat underlying hormonal imbalances is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). BHRT uses bioidentical hormones to replace the hormones that your body no longer produces, using hormones that are molecularly identical to the hormones your body would produce naturally. Unfortunately, chances are it’s not the job, it’s you. The good news is you can do something about it! You don’t have drudge on throughout the workday anymore, now you can regain your passion and rekindle the joy and pleasure that you used to get out of your career. Rediscover you!
