  • Break Free From Midlife Crisis Stress.

    Women currently in their Midlife, are a generation of women who have been raised to believe they can have it all. underwaterThe career, a happy marriage, children and a fabulous social life whilst looking amazing. However, the reality is often a very different story by the time you reach your midlife. If you are one of these women, you possibly are often exhausted from the juggling your many roles, disillusioned about your career and feeling overwhelmed and stressed, terrified that your many balls are going to all tumble to the ground.

    Somewhere between the age of 35-60, a high percentage of women will experience a time of questioning who they are; what they are doing with their lives and what they want to be doing with their lives. This time has been called The Midlife Crisis or Midlife Transition, which will often take off when where you are in your life is at odds with where you want to be . The realisation that you haven’t achieved your dreams and expectations of where you would be in life, can create a deep underlying stress that bubbles away underneath the surface. The further you are from the sense of fulfillment and sense of meaning in your life you are, the bigger the feelings of stress and unhappiness can grow. This can be a time of major upheaval and unhappiness as you look at areas of your life that seem to be the cause of your stress and unhappiness. As the stress continues to rise and life seems to lack more and more meaning, the blindfold that has been covering your eyes can start to be taken off.

    After 20 years of marriage, a wife might look at her husband sitting in front of the television, and ask herself ‘Is this all I have to look forward to for the next 30 years?’ Her sense of her relationship may never be the same again. Another woman might look at her career and wonder why she still feels so empty inside even though she has reached the promotion she has been working towards for 20 years. Another might look at her empty home, after her children have left home and ask herself ‘What now?’. For many it’s an amalgamation of empty dreams, a feeling of discontent and a realisation that what has been strived for is not the path to happiness and fulfillment. This disconnection and swirling  of overwhelming stress and anxiety can be frustrating and annoying.

    The good news is all is not lost! The intense stress experienced during the Midlife Crisis is actually your soul crying out to you to start asking yourself ‘What do I want out of my life?’, ‘What will make me fulfilled?’ and ‘How can I achieve this?’. Instead of seeing the stress as a bad thing and something to run away from by drinking too much or to ignore, it is letting you know that it is time for change. It is your opportunity to alter aspects of your life that are causing you stress and anxiety so you can start living a life with more meaning and fulfillment.
