Right around the time they turn 50, many people experience something commonly referred to as a midlife crisis. Someone suffering from a midlife crisis usually starts to realise that they have a finite amount of time left on this earth, and they start panicking about everything they haven’t done yet.
Anger, fear, depression and hopelessness are some of the many emotions you feel during a midlife crisis. It can be difficult to see the big picture and shake the overwhelming feeling of disappoint.
If you are experiencing a midlife crisis, take some time to consider the following questions:
What are my biggest accomplishments in life?
Make a list of everything you’ve done in life, whether it’s graduating college, working a job you love, getting married, buying a house or having children. Reminding yourself of all the wonderful things you’ve accomplished will make you realise that you’ve lived a fulfilling, rewarding life. If you’re struggling to come up with a full list, ask your close friends and family for their input.
Are there any goals I haven’t achieved yet?
No matter how long your list of accomplishments is, you likely have a few goals that you haven’t met yet. Write those down too, and start thinking about how you could accomplish each one. It’s never too late to chase your dreams, and you shouldn’t sell yourself short just because you’ve reached a certain age.
Is there anything I can do to improve my health?
One of the main concerns people have during a midlife crisis is that they don’t have much time left. While death is an unavoidable part of life, you can make sure your remaining years are as happy and as healthy as can be. Schedule an appointment with your doctor to chat about the ways you can improve your health. Whether it’s quitting smoking or losing weight, a few changes could dramatically improve your physical and emotional wellbeing, and you could even buy yourself a few extra years.
What milestones am I looking forward to?
Are any of your children getting married in the next few years? Are you expecting grandchildren or planning for retirement? Don’t forget that life still holds lots of great things after the age of 50. Start thinking about the wonderful events that lie ahead of you. In addition, try to plan an extensive vacation to a destination you’ve always wanted to visit. Looking forward to a new adventure is incredibly exciting, and when you have the time and financial resources to travel, it can be even better.
Once you’ve asked yourself these questions, remember: you likely have at least 20 years of life left. 20 years is a long time, and it leaves you plenty of time to cross everything off your bucket list.
Dealing with a midlife crisis can be stressful and it is important not to get bogged down with negative thoughts. In general, start focusing on all the things you’ve accomplished in life and all the good memories you still have to make. Doing so should help pull you out of your funk and rejuvenate your outlook on life!
