Let’s pull back the curtains on menopause, level-set definitions, reality-check common perceptions about menopause, and talk strategies for making this phase of our lives not only easier for ourselves but magical, even!

Midlife can be the most powerful years of our life. But sometimes, we have to de-program some ingrained ideas about what being midlife is supposed to feel and look like. We discuss practical habits to make our midlife the best phase in our life.

Many of us reach midlife and realize we’ve built a life and a persona that’s not entirely all-encompassing of the person that we are. In this episode, we explore what leads to self-fragmentation, how we can recognize it, and how we can begin the journey to our whole self.
