Midlife Crisis Counseling Minneapolis MN

Midlife is when we’ve answered many of the questions of our youth—what to do, where to live, whom (or whether) to marry—and begin to face a new set. What’s my life all about? Where do I go from here? At the same time, it’s when we start coming to grips with our limitations.

Reinventing Midlife

Provided by: 

By Dorothy Foltz-Gray

We all know someone like this: the fortysomething businessman who blows his savings on a Porsche, or the dutiful mother who suddenly dyes her hair blonde and runs away with the tango teacher. Or how about the guy who ditches his wife for a tootsie and buys a snazzy sports car?

These clichés persist for a reason. We live in a youth-obsessed culture, so if we aren’t happy with the way things are going in our forties or fifties, it’s only natural that some of us react by trying to recapture the trappings of youth.

But even if Porsche sales continue to soar among a certain age group, this sort of solution is starting to seem pretty tired. Perhaps it’s because we’re living longer than previous generations did—or maybe we’re just wising up to the limitations of the quick fix. But if the growing number of workshops and retreats around the country is any indication, more and more of us are using middle age as a chance to ask ourselves what we want to do with what may literally be the second half of our lives.

The fact is, most of us are no longer content to write it off to retirement or some other form of winding down, says Maddy Dychtwald, author of Cycles: How We Live, Work, and Buy, and cofounder of Agewave.com, an online service that advises companies targeting people at midlife and beyond. “Baby boomers make up a third of the population right now,” she says, “and they don’t view 50 as being over the hill.” These days, it’s become common to see life more as a series of cycles than as one straight line from beginning to end.

Midlife is when we’ve answered many of the questions of our youth—what to do, where to live, whom (or whether) to marry—and begin to face a new set. What’s my life all about? Where do I go from here? At the same time, it’s when we start coming to grips with our limitations, whether it’s aging knees or the realization that, hey, maybe we aren’t going to be rich or famous after all. And many of us just feel restless, eager to shake up a routine but not quite sure how.

That’s where alternative practices can help, says Daphne Stevens, an energy psychologist and life coach in Macon, Georgia, and author of the upcoming Watercolor Bedroom: Creating a Soulful Midlife. “Alternative healing invites us to open the door to all of the selves we can be,” she says. The relaxation you get from massage and yoga, for example, may create the contemplative space you need to begin pondering your options. And therapies like hypnosis and guided imagery can unveil a world of possibilities that your conscious, or guarded, mind might never consider. Particulars aside, what’s alternative medicine if not a means of paying attention to a person’s entire well-being, physical, emotional, and spiritual?

And that’s exactly what you need when you find yourself in the middle of your life and things aren’t quite right. Witness the four people profiled below. They all underwent some form of midlife crisis, and they all used tec...
