Joyful Midlife Passages: Meeting Menopause with Self-Discovery, Self-Care, and Positive Practice with Jackie Lynch & Chris Crowley

Jackie Lyncch &  Chris Crowley on HHTR


Aging is a right of passage we can and should embrace. As our systems shift and our hormones dwindle it is up to us to stay fit and healthy in our minds and bodies. But, it is not always easy when faced with a lack of motivation, forgetfulness, or a little weight gain. What should we be worrying about and what things should we accept without issue? To find out the best ways to live a long healthy, joyful life even through menopause, Positive Psychology Podcast Host, Lisa Cypers Kamen speaks with two authors who reveal how we can stay mentally and physically healthy. Jackie Lynch shares information from her book, The Happy Menopause, and educates us on better ways to care for ourselves and how to manage stress through lifestyle and nutritional choices. And, at 85, Chris Crowley, shares the keys to getting Younger Next Year, including his recommendations for exercise, proper nutrition, and keeping the brain healthy.
