The New Mid is a frank, funny look at women in mid-life and their day-to day-struggles and successes, as well as the big stuff - questions about meaning, fulfillment and happiness. It’s a place where women in their 40’s and up are breaking societal boundaries and expectations, while still dealing with real life issues such as caring for aging parents or restarting their careers.  You’ll get real talk with nothing held back about the topics you care about, with experts weighing in on health, sex, finances, relationships and everything in between.

"Energy follows attention. If all our attention goes to what we're struggling with and what we don't have and what we're afraid of that's where we're going to live." In today's episode I speak with marriage counselors Donna and David Bowman about how we can deal with the anxiety and stress that we're feeling as we start to enter a new normal. We also discuss how to speak with your children about the death of George Floyd, the riots and protests. 

Show takeaways:

  • We are all anxious and if we have more conflicts with our partners it's ok and normal.
  • We have an opportunity for something new.
  • How mom's can deal with the disappointment of their children not graduating.
  • What the best way is to help your family deal with the slow reopening of the country. 
  • How to keep boundaries and guidelines with your children.
  • Advice on how to deal with job loss. 
  • How to speak with your children about the death of George Floyd and the riots and protests.
  • We really need authentic connections with people right now that we trust.
  • When there's a change in things look for what you're losing but also look for the things you're gaining. There is always a blessing.
