S4 E13 Midlife Bites! You’re Not Alone If You Feel You’re Falling Apart With Jen Mann

Some days you think you’ve got this aging thing under control and others it brings you to your knees. It’s a roller coaster ride. Am I right? But knowing there are other women just like you makes it bearable. So does having a sense of humor about it. Author Jen Mann was motivated to write her hysterical book Midlife Bites: Anyone Else Falling Apart, Or Is It Just Me? after she had a midlife crisis that kicked her in the ass. She even started an active Facebook community where middle-age women can speak openly about their journey … because we are far from alone. Clearly.

In this episode, Jen and I discuss what inspired her to write the book, why she believes this generation of midlifers won’t age quietly, why she decided to be so candid about everything from sprouting hairs in unsuspecting places to scheduling sex with her husband, how and why she stepped out of her comfort zone, how she changed her perspective on the whole aging process, and so much more.

S4 E12 Why You Should Just Choose To Be Really Freaking Happy!

Fake it till you make it…or actually believe it. Make the choice to change your attitude to be happy. Happiness Rainmaker, Women’s Advocate and Author Peggy Sullivan believes it’s as simple as that when she spreads happiness and positivity wherever she goes. In fact, she started the SheCAN! Network to empower women professionals to succeed by supporting each other.

Low self-confidence steals our joy. Happy, positive people live longer lives, have decreased anxiety, have higher productivity and attract positive people.

Join Lauren and Peggy as they talk about what we can do to put “happiness” on the front burner, why having good personal energy is so important, how happiness is both an art and a science, her “happiness tripod theory,” how we can make happiness actionable and the SheCAN! community she created.
