Midlife Krisis – often a roller coaster, rarely a crisis.

The mid-life crisis is largely a myth. Did you know, there is no evidence that a crisis is any more common in midlife than at any other time. The word crisis has its origins in the Greek word Krisis which means deciding or decision point – which is much more accurate. Jacques coined the phrase midlife crisis back in 1965 but his research was based on clinical patients and has not been replicated. There is evidence that life events can have even more impact in midlife – such as being made redundant or getting divorce. A time for understanding and support rather than ridicule and dismissing. The good news is choices made in midlife have the potential to make the greatest difference – to your health, happiness and wealth. The perfect time for a midlife review.
