  1. Caffeine: If you are suffering from night sweats, then avoiding caffeine can help alleviate the night sweats. Caffeine disrupts hormonal balance.  Caffeine can also exacerbate insomnia and keep you awake at night. If you really love and enjoy your coffee, then only have it in the morning and make a ceremony out of it, get the best coffee you can afford and relish that cup! If you only have it in the morning, then it is out of your system by the time you go to sleep. However, it may still have an impact on your system.  Tea also has caffeine, so you may want to switch to herbal teas.
  2. Excessive Exercise: Exercise should be rejuvenating not depleting. Exercise to the point of exhaustion or overheating may exacerbate your symptoms of menopause such as night sweats or hot flushes, hot flashes.  Try to do low impact exercise and give your joints a break.
  3.  Alcohol: Alcohol may exacerbate your symptoms of menopause such as night sweats or hot flushes, hot flashes.
  4. Smoking: Smoking increases the number of free radicals in the body, which are known to damage many cells.  Smoking is just bad for you all around.
