Personal Message From Gwen & Tina….

Gwen Harris & Tina McDermott
The Dynamic Menopause Duo

Dear Beautiful Souls,

The anticipation is building, and we can’t wait to welcome you to our Menopaloozza. Our dedication is unwavering—to nurture your well-being through the journey of midlife and beyond. 

Menopause is not a setback; it’s a transitional season, and we’re navigating it right alongside you. Consider us your tribe.

Entering menopause doesn’t mean your quality of life should change. While the symptoms may seem daunting, remember, it’s a time that can bring positive transformations. Not all changes are negative, and the emotional shifts can be truly invigorating.

For many, menopause becomes a natural juncture for introspection. It’s a time to reevaluate relationships, professions, health practices, and how energy is expended. It’s your moment to ask if you’re headed where you want to go and if your time is genuinely meaningful.

Embrace the last half of your life with anticipation. Take those necessary “time outs,” reduce stress, and dare to pursue things you didn’t have time for before. With many years of life experience, you now possess a confidence that empowers you to go after what you want.

During those moments of hot flashes or forgetfulness, find solace in the camaraderie of women experiencing similar situations. Share coping strategies, jokes, and reassurances that you’re not alone. These unwelcome symptoms won’t last forever.

So, stand tall, be happy, and cruise the Menowave with us.

Gwen and Tina.
