It’s been connected with labels like “old,” “over the hill,” “losing it” – whether “it” was marbles, a job, a spouse, or looks. The reality is, however, that more and more, women in their forties, fifties, and sixties are living younger, vibrant, fully engaged lives. While some might be dealing with empty-nest syndrome, others are busy raising toddlers, or have tweens, teens, and grandchildren. Some women are reaching the pinnacle of a long career at midlife; others are reentering the workforce. Women’s relationships are at different stages: married, divorced, partnered, single, dating, and more. Their future is looking bright, yet so many women beat themselves up, live with anxiety, and fear they won’t be relevant in a world geared toward young people or that it’s too late for them to have the life they’ve always dreamed of. In YOUR BEST AGE IS NOW: Embrace an Ageless Mindset, Reenergize Your Dreams, and Live a Soul-Satisfying Life (HarperOne; April 5, 2016), Dr. Robi Ludwig contradicts these long-ingrained beliefs and fears, drawing on myth-busting scientific research and on her experience as a therapist to show midlife isn’t the beginning of decline – it’s actually a time to pursue dreams. Dr. Ludwig offers specific advice on how women can revolutionize their own concepts of midlife and make the best of it by: • Identifying the false thinking, stereotypes, and misconceptions that are holding them back • Letting go of stress, cultivating resilience, and creating a more balanced life • Taking charge of their love lives • Staying relevant in the workplace or starting a new career • Finding meaning and purpose while leading a life of gratitude YOUR BEST AGE IS NOW provides the guidance women need to reject the status quo and find the kind of happiness they may have never thought possible. There is a future women can look forward to and get excited about; in fact, they are most likely coming into the best time of their lives.
