This blog is about my personal journey in realizing wellness, both physical and mental, as a middle-aged man.
Please don’t ever call me middle-aged though. Those people are old, culturally irrelevant and out of touch. I don’t feel old and the numbers on my birth certificate do not dictate the way I live.
Instead I prefer to be called a Midult.
“Midults are a unique combination of digitally literate, hyper-connected and financially confident, they are the first generation to grow old without checking out. We are the healthiest, wealthiest and most active generation of women (and men) in history. Ignore us at your peril.”Emilie McMeekan , co-founder of The Midult
Life has thrown me some curveballs in the past year, but I refuse to call it a crisis. I intend to face this season of my life head-on and overcome the many challenges that come with being over 40 and newly divorced.
The purpose of this blog is to inspire other men in similar circumstances by sharing my experiences with fitness, diet, mental health, mindfulness and co-parenting.
I have had some great personal victories on my journey so far. I’m in the best shape of my life and I feel mentally prepared for anything. I hope that this blog encourages others to share their experiences as well. We could all use more motivation and inspiration!
