Sizzling Towards 60 Focus on Midlife Mental Health

As part of World Mental Health Day, I will be publishing a series of short posts on Midlife Mental Health  & Wellbeing each day for the next week.  Mental Health is such an important topic with 1 in 5 Australians suffering from mental illness.  Although being anxious is not limited to older people, studies show that as we age we do become more anxious and worried.

Each day for a week, I’ll be providing ways to improve your mental health and wellbeing and there will also be some posts from the archives with extra information.

Mental Health & Wellbeing should not be ignored especially as we age.  We all want to live happy and healthy lives and Mental Health is just as important as being Physically Healthy.

PLEASE NOTE:  I AM NOT A QUALIFIED DOCTOR OR PSYCOLOGIST the content in these articles are for your information only and if you feel you do have a problem please consult your doctor.

    What a fantastic idea to have a series of posts on mental health during midlife. And your format of sharing information in smaller, focused posts instead of one lengthy one is great, giving readers a chance to really think about and digest each topic. I’m definitely signing up and really glad to have found your site through the #BloggersPitStop. Looking forward to your posts!

      Hello Reuven! Thank you so much for your encouraging words and I hope you do enjoy the posts. I’m passionate about mental health and putting it out there! We can all learn and try to be kinder to ourselves we just need reminding sometimes. I’d love your feedback on the series.

      Yes Carol, imagine in years gone by when people were shunned or just shut away. We have moved forward but perhaps still a way to go. Have a beautiful day.

      Hi Kathleen, mental health affects so many even when we don’t realise we might be experiencing poor mental health. It is something we really need to promote and encourage others to talk and reach out.

    This is such an important topic. I get frustrated here in the US because we have huge discussions about gun control or bullying or homelessness or drug and alcohol addiction and the underlying issue in many of these discussions is mental health, which no one seems to ant to attend to.

      Exactly Michele, poor mental health is the cause of many problems yet we are only just starting to accept it as an illness.

    This is such an important yet misunderstood issue. This looks like a great series. And I agree with Michele above, we need to address the underlying issues creating the symptoms, not just battle the symptoms.

      I’m pretty passionate about this subject although I’m no expert. I just want to shine a light on maintaining good mental health. Yes we need to address the underlying issues but sometimes people find it hard to face them.

    A great post Sue, and I think it is important to be aware of how our life changes as we sizzle towards 60. .Well I have passed the line….But it also opens up lots of doors as well as closing some…I missed my work colleagues and people dreadfully but have taken the opportunity to try new ventures and do things I never ever thought I would have or even could do. I look forward to reading more and have flipped..not literally…ha ha

      Hi Carol! Lovely to meet you and I hope you enjoy my take on this time of life. I certainly found it difficult when I retired but once I accepted my new found freedom I started doing things I had always wanted to do but hadn’t got around to.
