Take a Deep Breath
Deep breathing is something that has helped many women relax enough to allow hot flashes to pass more easily and more quickly. There is one study in particular that show that it reduces hot flashes as much as 0%! Practice your deep breathing by breathing in slowly and deeply. This also works well when you are facing anxiety.
Progressive Relaxation
This is done by lying down in your bed or sitting up in a comfortable chair. Focus on the tensing and the relaxing of your muscles. Focus on each group of muscles separately, each for about 20 seconds. Keep repeating and you will find that it will relax your entire body.
Massage
This is a great way to reduce any anxiety you may be feeling. Those going through menopause can benefit greatly from massage as it is relaxing. Using music and/or aromatherapy can enhance the massage experience.  You can go to a professional or get a good rub down from your partner!
Guided Imagery
This is an exercise in imagination where you go to your happy place. Your happy place is somewhere you allow your mind to take you that makes you feel good, happy and relaxed. If you are a beach bum, picture yourself on the coast, the wind in your face and the sand between your toes. You could even play some ocean sounds for effect.
There is no technique that is better than the others. We are all individual and each of us will find one exercise better for ourselves. The main goal is to find what works best for you so you can ride out those hot flashes!
