Global Midlife Sisterhood
Are you a woman over 40 and experiencing the proverbial “Midlife Crisis”?
Midlife can be rough, but we don’t have to go it alone.
Introducing Global Midlife Sisterhood – A Community of Women in Midlife & Beyond.
In this private community, you will find practical ideas on self-care, support, encouragement and most of all, friendship.
Let’s break the stereotype of midlife being a crisis.
Let’s root for one another in sisterhood.
Come join us and flourish!
A strong social connection can:
• lead to a 50% increased chance of longevity
• strengthen our immune system
• help us recover from disease faster
A strong social connection can also:
• lower our level of anxiety and depression⠀
• increase our self-esteem and empathy
• may even lengthen our life
On the other hand:
A lack of social connection, or loneliness, is
a greater detriment to health than
• and high blood pressure
You've kept a stellar record of healthy habits, but you lack meaningful social connection.
What a pity if all your efforts to stay health backfire because of this?
When we hit midlife...
We can sometimes feel very lonely because people around us — in our family and workplace — don't necessarily understand what we're going through.
How do you experience Midlife?
Midlife can be extremely stressful. As women, we have to deal with the extra challenges of menopause alongside our day-to-day challenges at home and at work. In fact, the challenges usually come way before menopause, up to about 10 years before our last period. This period is called perimenopause.
During perimenopause and menopause, changing hormones can cause or exacerbate the midlife crisis.
Our declining estrogen and progesterone levels can, for example, interfere with our sleep, make our moods fluctuate, and reduce your energy levels. Menopause is also associated with memory loss, anxiety, depression, weight gain (especially on the belly), heart problems, and decreased interest in things we used to enjoy.
A recent study shows that midlife, the age range that spans between 40 and 65, can be downright tumultuous for women. During this time, we are not only dealing with hormonal changes, but also with work problems, family issues, eldercare, death of loved ones, securing finances and reaching personal goals. Does this sound just like you?
Midlife can be so messy and unsettling that some of us have reached a boiling point and we just can’t suffer in silence anymore!
Some of us feel a sense of despair and hopelessness–we’ve lost the spark that fuels our happiness, the raison d’être that makes us jump out of bed and start a new day. Some of us feel that it’s already too late or we’re too old to do anything meaningful or fun in our lives.
Midlife can be daunting, but it doesn’t have to be bad news!
Did you know that the Chinese word for “crisis” (危機) is made up of both “danger” and “opportunity”? They are part and parcel of each other. That’s how I feel about Midlife, and that’s how I want you to feel about it too!
It can be a period when we re-evaluate our habits, thought patterns, relationships and purpose. It can be a valuable time to figure out what is now meaningful to us, and how we want to live during the second half of our life.
Midlife can be a time we create a life on our own terms.
Let’s use Midlife as a pivotal point to launch the Second Act of our lives!
Of course, going through such a big transition can be scary. That’s why it’s important to know you’re not alone when you’re experiencing a midlife crisis or midlife health issues. Talking with other women about what you’re feeling can give you the support you sorely need.
That’s where the Global Midlife Sisterhood Community comes in!
I’ve created this community for women in midlife and beyond, who are fumbling, struggling, overcoming, and will triumph–together. Guest speakers will share their knowledge, wisdom, ideas or tips for healthy living at midlife and beyond. Members are encouraged to participate in discussions and can also apply for a spot to be featured on my upcoming podcast!
Together, let’s support and inspire one another to break the stereotype of midlife being a “crisis.” Let’s create a safe space to start the Second Act of our life!
Let’s claim full ownership of our life reel, and step into the lead actress’ role, shall we?
