Welcome to My Second Spring!

I’m Aisling, and I’ve created My Second Spring to provide a voice and resource for all of us during the time of transition and growth that is the menopause. Menopause is often an uncomfortable topic, still taboo for many of us.

The Best Friend’s Guide to the Menopause

I dithered for a moment before buying this ebook because I thought that I could get a good lot of this type of information free online....what I didn't realise was how luxurious it was going to be to have everything in one place on my phone and on my lap top. The clickable contents page is particularly handy. Thanks for this Aisling. Are you planning any other ones?

Preparing for My Second Spring

Preparing for My Second Spring

I conceived the idea of a website about the menopause early in February 2013. What a coincidence that it has taken me nine months to bring it to fruition and launch on 18th October 2013.

During my research, I learnt lots about the menopause, and here are some key findings:

  • Menopause is complete when we have had no periods for 12 months.
  • Most symptoms take place during perimenopause - the 4-8 years before menopause.
  • Only about 10% of women will need medical treatment for menopause symptoms.
  • 100% of women will benefit from positive lifestyle adjustments in areas such as diet, exercise and stress management.
  • If we have unresolved life issues we may have a more difficult menopause.
  • Osteoporosis is known as the silent disease - it comes upon us without warning symptoms.

During the website's 9 month gestation I also learned a lot about computers, website design, affiliate marketing, search engine optimisation, blogging and persevering. So if you've got any inkling to pursue a business, follow a dream or start again in any way, go ahead and take the first step today! You'll find lots of support here.
