Perimenopause, Menopause: Change the Way You Age with Debra Atkinson

core connections May 03, 2022

“What I used to do doesn't work anymore…”

That phrase is what my guest today, Debra Atkinson, has heard over and over again from mid-life women... Yet they keep doing it.

So how do you get over the way you look as you age and instead feel empowered by the way you feel?

That’s exactly what you’re about to hear today… and how you can use her movement and nutrition tips to create a better version of yourself during perimenopause or menopause!

Debra has helped over 250,000 women *flip* their second half with the vitality and energy they want through her bestselling books, speaking engagements, and podcast, Flipping 50, an AARP top podcast for 50+.

She founded Flipping50 and has helped women get the energy and the vitality they want, need, and deserve as they reach menopause and beyond.

>>As you can tell, Debra Atkinson is a unique guest on the Core Connections Podcast, and that’s exactly why I enjoy talking to her!<<

Debra was an instructor of mine at Iowa State University and I am so excited to get to learn from her once again!

Our conversation is all about letting go of your younger health habits to be in better control of your mid-life hormone changes and feel empowered as you age.
