The Menopause - it's something that roughly half of us will all go through, yet is often a taboo subject. Championing the change for a more menopause-friendly society is British TV presenter and menopausal woman (!) Andrea McLean, who in this episode, shares her experience and the challenges she's faced as a result.
From backpacking through to resignations, Andrea outlines her story to date of how she ended up hosting Loose Women - one of Britain's most popular daytime talkshows. Being in the public eye, Andrea described the challenges that early-onset menopause presented, including frequent and powerful panic attacks and how that led her to seek medical help and start a course of HRT and ultimately make the decision to have a full hysterectomy - which she announced live on TV.
Fast-forward several years and now Andrea is a leading champion for the menopause and is writing a book, based on her experiences, to help other women thrive during this period of great change. Andrea shares with Pete different ways to improve how you feel, including through diet, exercise and sleep, with the pair going on to challenge the 'perfection' mindset and how to feel strong.
Wrapping up this incredible episode, Andrea outlines her time on 'Dancing on Ice' and 'Tumble' and how getting outside of her comfort zone is the key to self-growth, ultimately giving her the strength to show vulnerability in front of a live TV audience.
