The climacteric is marked by ovarian failure and lower production of estrogen. This causes changes in the female metabolism and a number of symptoms may occur, such as hot flashes, irritability, insomnia, among others. Sleep complaints are common in women in the menopausal transition and postmenopause. Patients with higher scores on the mindfulness scale had fewer menopausal symptoms compared to those who had lower scores on this scale, also it was seen a better quality of life measured by specific questionnaires among this first group. This study seeks to compare the state of mindfulness in women after menopause and their complaints about the climacteric syndrome and sleep disorders in comparison with a control group. A cross-sectional study with the application of specific questionnaires from menopause, sleep disturbances and mindfulness will be done.
