6/7/21 Thriving in the Second Half of Life

Whether you want to call it post-middle age, the second middle-age, or the new middle-age, life can, should be, and often is fulfilling, meaningful, and vibrant as people enter the second half of their lives. But, the post-midlife years also can be filled with distinct challenges, including ones related to our relationships, our work, and our health. So, in this episode we’ll be discussing the new middle age: What it is and how to navigate it. We’ll also talk about how COVID-19 may be changing it. Host David B. Feldman interviews Dr. Jerrold Lee Shapiro, psychologist and author of Finding Meaning, Facing Fears: Living Fully Twixt Midlife and Retirement.
