Embrace Inner Strength Ten Top Tactics


Here are ten points about inner strength specifically for menopausal women, complete with examples of past self-talk and new affirmations to foster confidence and self-belief.



  • Past Self-Talk: “I can’t handle all these changes.”

  • New Affirmation: “I have faced and conquered many challenges before. Menopause is just another chapter, and I am strong enough to handle it.”

  • Example: When experiencing a hot flash, remind yourself of past tough times you have overcome and how those experiences have made you resilient.


  • Past Self-Talk: “I don’t like these changes in my body.”

  • New Affirmation: “Change is a natural part of life, and with every change, I have an opportunity to grow stronger and wiser.”

  • Example: Reflect on how previous life changes, like starting a new job or moving to a new place, ultimately led to personal growth and new strengths.


  • Past Self-Talk: “I should be able to do it all.”

  • New Affirmation: “Setting boundaries is a form of self-respect and self-care. It is okay to prioritize my health and well-being.”

  • Example: Practice saying no to extra responsibilities that drain your energy, and feel empowered by the control you gain over your life.


  • Past Self-Talk: “I’m frustrated with my forgetfulness.”

  • New Affirmation: “I am patient and kind to myself. I understand that my body and mind are adjusting, and that’s okay.”

  • Example: When you misplace something, take a deep breath, laugh it off, and gently remind yourself that it’s okay to have off days.


  • Past Self-Talk: “I’m too stressed to cope with this.”

  • New Affirmation: “Laughter is a powerful tool for relieving stress and boosting my mood. I will incorporate laughter yoga into my routine.”

  • Example: Dedicate a few minutes each day to laughter yoga exercises, noticing how it lightens your mood and reduces stress.


  • Past Self-Talk: “I feel like I’m losing control.”

  • New Affirmation: “I focus on what I can control and let go of what I cannot. I am capable of managing my reactions and choices.”

  • Example: Create a list of things you can control (e.g., your diet, exercise routine) and things you can’t (e.g., the onset of hot flashes). Shift your energy towards what you can influence.


  • Past Self-Talk: “I have to go through this alone.”

  • New Affirmation: “I am not alone. Seeking support and sharing my journey can bring me strength and solidarity.”

  • Example: Join a menopause support group where you can share experiences, laugh together, and draw strength from the community.


  • Past Self-TTalk: “I’m past my prime.”

  • New Affirmation: “With age comes wisdom and experience. I celebrate the knowledge and strength I have accumulated over the years.”

  • Example: Reflect on accomplishments and experiences that have shaped you into the wise, strong person you are today, and celebrate those moments.


  • Past Self-Talk: “My body is betraying me.”

  • New Affirmation: “My body is my ally. I will treat it with kindness and care, nurturing it through this transition.”

  • Example: Engage in activities that make you feel good, such as gentle yoga, nutritious cooking, or a relaxing bath, reinforcing the positive relationship with your body.


  • Past Self-Talk: “I don’t know if I can get through this.”

  • New Affirmation: “I am strong, capable, and resilient. I affirm my inner strength every day.”

  • Example: Start each day with a powerful affirmation that sets a positive tone, such as, “Today, I choose to be strong and embrace my inner power.”
