Welcome to another episode of the Women in the Middle Podcast

Living on autopilot in midlife is a common experience for midlife women. This episode is about how to plan your way through autopilot thinking so you can be more intentional and decrease the likelihood of having regrets.

If you find yourself wasting valuable time, falling into long-term habits without much thought, not thinking about what you want, living out of alignment, saying yes a lot when you really mean no, you may be involved in autopilot living. Just like other aspects of your life, it’s not necessarily a problem unless it’s not helping you achieve your goals and live intentionally.

Today’s episode helps you understand what living on autopilot in midlife may be preventing you from the lifestyle you want on purpose. The “Benchmark Check-In Tool™” is shared and discussed as a simple strategy to help you understand the context of certain plans and goals so that you can push yourself out of autopilot and into a more intentional direction that brings you more happiness and fulfillment.
