Life involves a number of transitional stages, from birth to death. Menopause signifies the end of your reproductive years. Your ovaries stop producing enough eggs needed for stimulating estrogen production. Accordingly, your estrogen levels drop and lead to a number of physiological changes. As the term implies, the transitional stage occurring immediately before menopause is known as perimenopause.
The perimenopausal transitional life stage can start anywhere from 10 years before menopause and is a gradual progression. Perimenopause does not need to be scary, but there are secrets you need to understand to make this stage of your life more comfortable while reducing associated symptom severity.

EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK
Estrogen plays an integral part in your brain's functioning and signaling system by directing blood flow to more active parts of your brain. Since aging involves losing estrogen, your brain activity can be negatively affected, according to Russel Thompson. As you age, your brain processing function decreases. You can prepare yourself for menopause by keeping your brain active in a number of ways:
Pay attention to what you do. Paying attention to what you are doing increases your ability to remember. Distraction plays a key role in being disorganized and making it feel as if you are losing your mind. Instead, slow down and perform one task at a time. Concentrating on one task at a time trains your brain to operate efficiently.
Lists can help increase cognitive awareness. Begin each day by making a list of everything you want to accomplish. Lists increase organization, lower your risks of forgetting and help you avoid becoming frustrated. Keep your initial list limited to five items to avoid being overwhelmed. As you perform a task, cross it off your list. Not only will you feel a sense of accomplishment, your self-confidence will increase and you will become better organized.
