Menopause Health Trends We’re Watching in 2024
There’s no better time to refocus on your health than the start of a new year. Midday is committed to being the most up-to-date, science-backed resource. Here’s a quick look at seven trends that we’ll be watching in 2024.
1. Use Wearable Data for Better Rest
In 2024, we’ll use our wearable devices for more than tracking steps. With the help of new wearable technology and the Midday app’s personalized insights, you can understand your sleep patterns and start taking action for better rest.
From understanding the effect of alcohol on your sleep quality to providing data to help start a conversation about sleep apnea with your healthcare provider, wearable data empowers you to make informed decisions that contribute to more restful and rejuvenating nights.
Beyond wearable insights, Midday offers a range of science-backed support geared towards helping you get a good night’s sleep. Immerse yourself in master class interviews with menopause sleep experts and start our guided program to help you fall asleep faster and stay asleep using proven evidence-based techniques.
2. Get Strong For Whole-Body Benefits
In 2024, women are more visible than ever in the weight room. Getting strong and lifting heavy is not just for men—in fact, the benefits of strength training are even more powerful for women’s health.
Research is clear that building muscle and maintaining it through regular training is a fundamental practice for living longer and healthier. Lifting heavy weights does more than build muscle—it’s critical for maintaining bone density, reducing falls, building cardiovascular, metabolic, and brain health, and supporting a healthy weight.
Finally, strength training offers more than physical resilience. It’s a powerful practice that many women find builds confidence, reduces anxiety and depression, and helps them feel comfortable and proud in their skin.
Want to learn more about the benefits of strength training and how to get started?

3. Stay Curious About Intermittent Fasting
Intermittent fasting (IF) was all the rage in 2023 and will continue to be a part of the mainstream conversation about nutrition in 2024. While much more research is needed, many women in midlife are interested in the potential health and weight loss benefits from time-restricted eating practices.
IF isn’t for everyone, but it can be a helpful way to gain awareness of and start to modify your eating patterns. Interested in trying this trend? Talk to your healthcare provider about whether it’s right for you, and don’t miss Midday’s articles and master class interviews with nutrition experts on how to get started and the method that’s right for you.
4. Self-Care That’s More Than a Spa Day
In a world often dominated by quick fixes, we hope that 2024 brings a shift towards mindful self-care that goes beyond a mani-pedi. It’s important to treat yourself, but lasting and meaningful self-practices come down to cultivating opportunities for mindfulness, rest and recovery, and fueling and moving your body.
Ready to build a foundation of self-care that nourishes your health and wellbeing? Midday’s wellness library is a wealth of expert-designed mindfulness resources made especially for midlife women. Tap into intuitive eating mindfulness programs and self-hypnosis for hot flash relief, better sleep, and less anxiety.

5. Get Personalized Menopause Support With AI
Artificial intelligence (AI) has dominated headlines since the debut of ChatGPT in 2023, and healthcare is one of the industries poised to benefit the most. Midday has been a leader in harnessing AI to demystify the complexity of menopause and deliver a personalized experience to our users.
So what can we expect in 2024? Always-available AI-guided chatbots and health assistants will be able to answer your questions and offer essential guidance in real time, for a far more personalized and accurate experience than WebMD-ing or Facebooking-ing it yourself. Midday continues to innovate with AI and is excited to be building more advanced AI-guided and personalized features.
6. Focus on Preventative Care
We’ve all heard the old adage, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” In 2024, good old-fashioned preventative care will overtake fad trends. With more tools and support accessible than ever before, we believe that consumers will take even more preventative care and proactive diagnosis into their own hands to reduce their risk of chronic disease and extend their healthy lifespan.
Recognizing that menopause symptoms along with normal aging can increase disease risk, Midday is your go-to solution for getting a jump start on managing disruptive symptoms and getting started on healthy lifestyle practices. Midday’s guided programs and coaching offer a personalized journey that adapts to your changing needs.
7. Empowerment Through Menopause Education
Knowledge is power, and in 2024, there’s a growing recognition of the need for comprehensive and accurate information about menopause. Understanding the changes in your body, debunking popular myths, and exploring evidence-based symptom management strategies are crucial components to become empowered to navigate this transformative phase of life with confidence.
