The subject of health is one that often crops up when you're experiencing the menopause. That's quite natural as your body goes through changes that can have strange and sometimes painful episodes that can feel like something is not quite right.

The imbalance in hormone levels can play tricks on your senses as well as alter your body chemistry subtly and bring about aches and pains, feelings of tiredness and lethargy as well as some anxiety and stress. Obviously, you'll want to make sure your body is as healthy as it can be to avoid any serious problems cropping up.

Healthy Weight

If you are looking for the best ways to lose weight while boosting your health as well, then you should be looking at all the natural ways of doing this. It comes as something of a surprise to many people that there are actually a large number of these natural ways and most of them do not involve getting into a gym or starving yourself!

Let's take a brief look at how you can lose some weight while staying healthy by using only natural methods.

Natural Methods

A big plus is in actually understanding how to lose weight the natural way by making use of what's around you and not resorting to artificial aids such as pills or surgery or crash diets and the like. You should make a point of eating a natural diet and getting more exercise.

That means getting out of the house more often and into the natural daylight where you can be more active while enjoying the sunshine or at least some fresh air if the sky has clouded over.

It's quite amazing that there are so many people that sit indoors all day and want to lose weight but won't get up off their comfy sofa and venture outdoors to do it. When you lack exposure to natural daylight, your mood can actually swing downward towards a depressed state due to lack of the hormone serotonin. This is the hormone responsible for lifting our mood so it's a pretty important one to have plenty of!

Get Outdoors

How do you naturally boost your body's production of serotonin? You get into the daylight and out of the house, that's how!

Not only do you get a boost of this mood lifting hormone, but exposure to natural sunlight also boosts your vitamin D levels, which you need for effective weight loss according to recent expert studies in this area. This when combined with eating a healthy diet makes a pretty effective way to lose weight.

So just doing that and getting out of the house will boost your weight loss needs in a natural way. You can then go further and actually get active, by going for long walks, riding a bike, going for a run (if you are feeling energetic) or whatever else you want to do that involves using energy and being active!

So if you have an idea that you should turn to the natural approach to getting fit and healthy, you just learned some great ways of doing that. Plus you now know that it's perfectly OK to go natural and that it really works!
