Why does it feel so much harder to lose weight at midlife?  Well you’re not imagining it, and you’re not alone.

S3 Ep170: The Happiness Curve: Interview with Author Jonathan Rauch
The Midlife Mentors
by The Midlife Mentors
2w ago
In this episode we talk to  journalist and author Jonathan Rauch about his book on midlife - The Happiness Curve.   Inspired by his own experience Jonathan looked at research on age and happiness and found it shows that from our 20s into our 40s, happiness follows a well-documented U-shaped trajectory - a "happiness curve", declining from the optimism of youth into what's often a long, low trough in middle age, before starting to rise again in our 50s. The good news is this isn't a midlife crisis, but a chance to embrace becoming a wiser being, shifting priorities away from competi ..read more

In this episode we look at the power of micro habits and how you can utilise small changes to get big results. Often we feel overwhelmed by the thought of what we’ll need to do to make meaningful change in our lives, but actively working with micro habits like we do in our programmes makes it simple and achievable - and above all sustainable. We take a look at the psychology and science behind investing in micro habits, including the importance of dopamine and rewards. We also look at how stacking habits makes it even easier to rewire your brain so reaching your goals doesn’t feel so hard. T ..read more

S3 Ep167: Midlife & Unhappy
The Midlife Mentors
by The Midlife Mentors
1M ago
In this episode we’re discussing unhappiness at midlife. It seems, to varying degrees, we’re all experiencing the 'midlife malaise', and yet we’re also ashamed of feeling this way. We can feel very alone, even if we’re surrounded by people day in day out. This leads to isolation and feeling like there’s no point to it all… So we’re on a mission to destigmatise being unhappy at midlife, because not only is it normal, but incredibly common. We need to bring compassion and understanding as to why this is happening, with tools to navigate us through the challenging times.  We hope this podc ..read more

In this episode we discuss why it’s important not to ignore red flags - your gut instinct - that says something, someone or a situation isn’t quite right.  We’ve all had this experience where we’ve ignored our instinct only to kick ourselves later down the line. Or we’ve made a decision quickly, not knowing why and it’s potentially changed the direction of our life. We share our own experiences of this and hope you enjoy it!

Do you often wonder why you find it so hard to change? Regardless of how much you try, you keep ending up doing the exact same things over and over? That’s because behaviour change is complex. And we want to be totally transparent - it’s not easy. But the most important thing to remember is that behaviour change IS possible, because not only have we changed our own unhealthy behaviours over the years, but we’ve also seen countless clients do the same on our eight week programme. So that’s why we wanted to share our latest podcast episode with you, where we interview Dr Nicola Eccles, from On ..read more

S3 Ep161: Reframing Failure
The Midlife Mentors
by The Midlife Mentors
3M ago
In this episode we’re discussing failure, because there’s such pressure in today’s society to be a success, that we often find the fear of failure debilitating. The reality is, we all fail. We fail at relationships, we fail at business, we fail at personal goals, we fail at being true to our ourselves. But failure isn't the end unless we let it be. It's an integral part of trying. If we never fail, we're not taking risks or pushing boundaries. We're playing it safe. And safe might feel comfortable, but it doesn't foster growth or a life well lived. So, in this episode we unpack all of this ..read more
