Welcome to another episode of the Women in the Middle podcast!

Today’s episode is all about what a midlife crisis is and how it’s likely not the same as what your mom experienced.

When thinking about what a “midlife crisis” is, it’s important to understand a little bit about how the use of the phrase has evolved and changed for men and women. It used to be more common to only think of men having trouble with this tradition in an effort to reclaim their youth, whereas women struggled and coped with menopause.

Today, it’s quite common for women to experience some form of “midlife crisis;” however, I like to think about it more as a midlife funk or transition than an actual crisis. Many women recognize this age and stage of life as a time for thoughtful reflection and appreciate that it’s an opportunity for change.

However, it’s also common for there to be a lot of confusion about this whole stage of life and how to navigate the change to develop clear and exciting plans for the future. Ten common ways to sense if you’re having a midlife crisis are discussed, as well as some suggestions for a helpful mindset shift.
