How to Last a Mid-Life Crisis
What is Midlife Crisis? Midlife crisis is a word first used in 1965 by Elliott Jacques, a psychoanalyst and organizational psychologist. Mr. Jacques used the term to describe a number of symptoms or feelings of emotional discomfort brought on by an individual’s observation that they were maturing, youth was fading, and life was not what they thought it would be.
Midlife crisis is often triggered by physical changes, menopause, andro pause, losing one’s hair, declining energy, and other signs of aging. Shifting life patterns or structures such as the death of parents or spouse, children growing upΩ and leaving home, loss of employment, disenchantment with one’s career and an inability to find a new way of earning a comparable living also will cause, or contribute, to the feelings disappointment and failure.
Symptoms vary from person to person and between genders. Women may suffer greatly when they look back at their aspirations when first entering the work world and assess the reality of their current situation. A mid life crisis is not the end of the world. Thousands of people go through it every year and they make it. Everyone will handle it in a different way, just remember the good times you had and treasure them.
That failing, there are health clubs to join, trails to jog and bicycles to ride, physical fitness is always a good idea, and plastic surgeons very eager to make you look young again. If plastic surgery is your choice be careful to choose some one skilled, experienced and in possession of a good reputation. Life is full of changes, some good, some not so good. We experience joy and pain in every day we live.
Having a child later in life (30′s or 40′s), if you love and enjoy children, is an excellent way to avoid altogether, the unpleasantness of a midlife crisis. You wont have the time for one. You will be too busy with schoolwork, swimming lessons, sliding down a snow-covered hill on a plastic toboggan, answering endless questions and cheering a sometimes inept child at basketball games. Do some yoga, calm yourself down and enjoy being a professional adult and still healthy.
