Navigating the Change is a website designed and launched by KE Garland.
She invited a group of bloggers to submit articles about ‘the Change’ with its primary focus on navigating the journey of hormonal fluctuations, mood swings, nutrition, weight gain and loss, bloating, fitness and all the other gory stuff that happens at one time or another to women when they enter peri- and then menopause. Check out the website, there are relatable articles for everyone.
Note: I’ve had some men comment on my digestive health article – how refreshing is that?
We often forget (or dismiss) that men have their own body and health challenges in midlife. Nice to see them take an interest in this website and its articles.
Now there is an essay contest you can participate in.

I’ve taken an interest in this contest, but almost forgot about it until both Kelly and LA reminded me with their social media campaigns or nudges. 🙂
I started writing my essay this morning, but it’s unrefined and a bit of a mess, like most of my essays are when I write without editing. As soon as I’ve published this post, I will go have a look at my word count and do a re-read and edit.
Regardless of what happens in terms of winning a prize (or not), we all have an important story to share about our bodies, self-image and how it affected us over the years.
So take a look at the website and the contest details and join a group of interesting women by sharing your story about body positivity.
Looking forward to reading them all.
