Episode 99: Upgrading the menopause conversation with Clarissa Kristjansson

Clarissa Kristjansson is a Mindfulness and Menopause expert, author of The Mindful Menopause, and host of the brilliant Thriving Thru Menopause podcast. She’s on a mission to change the way women approach menopause and aging. The last time we got together, we had such a brilliant conversation, on her podcast, I just had to share her with you. We both get quite hot under the collar about a lot of the same issues.

We talk about:

  • How Clarissa got so passionate about menopause
  • Why it’s so important to take a holistic approach to menopause
  • The importance of mindfulness when it comes to a good menopause experience
  • What annoys Clarissa about the prevailing narratives surrounding menopause
  • The myths around menopause
  • How women can be proactive and not just reactive about their menopause experience
  • The use of data when it comes to menopause
  • Understanding and contextualizing data presented
  • Menopause at work
  • Sexism and ageism and their insidious intersection
  • The female brain drain in midlife
  • Making work work better for women, especially older ones
  • Clarissa’s top tips for thriving through menopause
