Midlife stress is a killer for some of us. It may ebb and flow. It may settle in for a spell, but it’s a part of life for all of us. How we handle it of course depends on:
- our awareness of the sources
- willingness to do something about the sources
- ability to create selfcare strategies to balance those sources that we wouldn’t wish away or can’t.
My guest today wants you to know you can turn midlife stress into strength and go from Victim to Victorious. In this interview episode I recruit my guest to support some challenges you too might have, drinking too much coffee or running when it’s not helping your cause. Anyone know that wine is a habit that may be interrupting your sleep, weight goals, and energy but have a hard time giving it up? I asked about that.
If these don’t quite resonate, don’t go away, you’ll find something in this episode no matter what it might be you want to change. The challenge we may not be able to solve for you is, knowing which habit may contribute to an undesirable outcome, paired with refusal to give it up when you find out. That’s a tough one.
Ready to Say Bye Bye to Midlife Stress? Or at least calm her down?
If you are ready to change, even if you’re only thinking about it, this episode promises to help. Did you know, right now is a great time to change? At the time of this release there are about 60 days remaining in this year. We all feel a sense of urgency when things are coming to a close. So this just might be what puts your wheels in motion.

Among your clients are Citibank, MTV and Expedia as well as Pritikin Weight Loss Center. Pritikin, I can easily relate to, how did you help companies like Citibank or MTV – without of course violating confidentiality?
Tell listeners a little about your books, which came first?
Given so many experts often had their own journey first, what prompted that?
Let’s talk about clearing unwanted habits(we mentioned in your introduction)… because there are really two things there: first to identify the habits causing an unwanted outcome. It’s easy to identify the undesirable outcome. It’s harder to identify the habit, and even harder yet to break or replace it.
At what point in their journey do you begin working with someone?
How do your clients find you?
Let’s take a fairly benign example, let’s say we have a listener drinking coffee .. she absolutely wants to lose the weight, now what?
Say a listener knows she needs a change in her exercise routine because it’s not working. Now what?
I’ve got a woman listening who … wants two very opposite things, (once she understands that wine is sugar, sugar causes blood sugar and insulin spikes and sets your body into fat storage mode). Where would you begin?
