In her latest book, The Break Up Monologues she examines through her own experiences, stories from others and also experts on the topic what we can learn from our break-ups, why they’re vital parts of our personal growth and badges to be worn with pride rather than shame.SEE LIVE COMEDY in Tunbridge Wells OR on “Facebook Live”, Thursday 17th June, with Rich Wilson, Jen Brister (Live At The Apollo), Alex Lowe (AKA Clinton Baptiste from Phoenix Nights) and Aimee Cooper.

This episode will have lots of lightbulb moments for mid lifers and you're going to feel really good by the end of it, I promise. If you're in your 30s - do yourself a favour and listen - limit the surprise coming your way. Jonathan Rauch, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution in Washington, is the author of seven books and many articles on public policy, culture, and government. He is a contributing writer for The Atlantic and recipient of the 2005 National Magazine Award, the magazine industry’s equivalent of the Pulitzer Prize. His latest book is The Happiness Curve: Why Life Gets Better After 50.'Drawing on cutting-edge science and human stories, The Happiness Curve shows that happiness follows a U-shaped trajectory, declining from the optimism of youth into what’s often a long, low slump in middle age before starting to rise again in our 50s—and then offering an unexpected bounty of contentment and wisdom.The Happiness Curve doesn’t just illuminate the dark forest of midlife, it helps you find a path through the trees. It also shows how we can—and why we must—do more to help each other through the woods.'We could've chatted to Jonathan all day - he's super clever, very funny, compassionate and really 'gets' people. You'll love this episode.More about Jonathan Rauch & The Happiness Curve Book. http://happinesscurvebook.com. JonathanRauch.com.

Louise’s aversion to Namaste ‘wankery’ at yoga was unpicked and then we properly grilled Dr Sally Norton on weight gain in midlife and what to do about it. Sally is a medical NHS consultant and weight loss expert. This is the episode to listen to if you’re struggling to maintain healthy weight. Sally gave us evidence-based information on changes we can ALL make that WILL make a difference.So much to take away from this episode that will be invaluable to men and women no matter what their age along with pitfalls to avoid around food with kids and teens.More about Dr Sally Norton. https://www.drsallynorton.com.

Our guest today is Emma Parker, the CEO of Playful Promises which is a lingerie brand WITH A DIFFERENCE… really beautiful lingerie BUT the brand really is all about celebrating  and valuing ALL women … not just the young, thin ones. If you look on Playful Promises website & Instagram account you’ll see that they are absolutely committed to diverse imagery and have been for years – way before it became cool in the fashion industry to throw the old dogs (or the plus size ones)  an occasional bone … they consistently value their customers of every age and size  and make beautiful lingerie for them… so if you’re over 25, bigger than a size 10 and thought Marks & Sparks was your only option – think again. The largest demographic of lingerie buyers is people between the age of 30-45 but you wouldn’t know that from looking at most lingerie campaigns who portray the average customer as a teen or early-twenty-something. It's no wonder that 70% of women over the age of 45 report feeling ignored by the fashion industry.We talked all this through with Emma and Aimee over-shared... again!The Amy Schumer sketch we referred to is 'Last Fuckable Day' and you can see it on YouTube here.Playful Promises Website: https://www.playfulpromises.comPlayful Promises Instagram: @playfulpromisesMore about Aimee Cooper:. Instagram: @aimeecooperforms More about Louise Daniels: .

So much laughter with today's guest as we got down to the nitty-gritty of how we should be discussing sex with our kids. There's quite a bit of swearing and sharing in this episode as we chat masturbation, sex, consent, boundaries, protecting kids against sexual predators, porn and a whole lot more VERY openly with Dr Lea Lis, The Shameless Psychiatrist.Dr Lea Lis is a psychiatrist who’s been working with families since the beginning of her psychiatric career.  Her goal is to help all parents raise strong, secure, and resilient children who become strong, secure, and resilient adultsShe has a passion for working with children and teenagers around sex education and she chatted to us to explain why and also to tell us about her book which is out on September 22nd: No Shame: Real Talk with your kids about sex, self-confidence & healthy relationships.This is a book you'll enjoy reading, because, like Lea, it's FUN! It will also support you to confidently have vital age-appropriate conversations with your children from babies through to teens.If you're someone who thinks they don't need to have these conversations or who feels really uncomfortable starting them, please do listen to this episode to understand why you absolutely cannot just bury your head in the sand... and by the end of it you'll be feeling reasurred.More about Dr Lea Lis. https://www.drlealis.com.

We’re joined by award-winning Doula, birth worker, educator and activist Mars Lord. I met Mars about 12 years ago through my birth work… ‘What’s any of this got to do with midlife? ’I hear you ask – well, for a bit of background, I’ve seen her speak quite a few times and when she does there are always lightbulb moments in abundance for her audience. Each time I’ve come away inspired and informed.  So, imagine my delight when I learnt that she is branching out, using her years of experience to coaching – it gave me a legitimate reason to ask her onto this midlife podcast …Of COURSE we didn’t stick just to the topic in hand, we talked about EVERYTHING and it was an absolute treat, because a conversation with Mars leaves you considering things differently. But, as regards the coaching - are you questioning who you are and who you want to be? Do you know some changes need to happen but you’re not sure what they are or how you go about making them? If you’re nodding your head, ask yourself what you’re waiting for. Ask yourself if you REALLY need to have a load of ducks in a row before you can move forward – I bet you don’t! Start by having a listen here to Mars, follow her on social media and click through on the links below to find out about the support she offers.More about Mars Lord.     https://marslord.co.uk. https://www.instagram.com/_marslord/. https://twitter.com/_MarsLord. https://abueladoulas.co.uk. https://fearless-birthing.com/selfish-kindness/More about Aimee Cooper:.      Follow Aimee on Instagram:  https://www.instagram.com/aimeecooperforms/ More about Louise Daniels: .

Our guest is Kathryn Mannix - Kathryn is a palliative care doctor & author of the bestselling book With The End in Mind… in which she sheds a light on death & ways of dying through the stories of those she’s supported.This is an informative and uplifting episode for us to understand how we can prepare for a peaceful death for our loved ones & for ourselves. Pretty daft to bury your head in the sand, because *NEWS FLASH* death is 100% coming our way at some point and these discussions can be really positive, even cheerful conversations. You’ll come away from today's episode reassured that normal human dying isn’t as bad as you probably think.We arranged this interview at the beginning of February before most of us, certainly me, were even aware of coronavirus….. it’s hugely relevant to what we’re discussing today, and so, of course we talk about it but first of all, in more general terms, we asked Kathryn why we should be having discussions around death… what should we expect from a ‘normal’ death? What will those around us see? Is it scary and dramatic?What if your relative doesn’t want to talk about it? Do you insist? How can you gently start that conversation? On the topic of Covid - there’s been so much grief and loss and we’ve seen a big effort being made by MPs & TV presenters when reporting deaths to acknowledge that these were individual lives. Covid has changed the way we view death and talk about it.We also discuss the legal issues around decision making - many of us will assume ‘oh well, doctors will decide & that’s that’ but there are definitely things that we should consider and Kathryn talks us through those.Resources Discussed: Decision making templates: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/end-of-life-care/End of Life Doula UK: https://eol-doula.ukSoul Midwifves: https://www.soulmidwives.co.uk More about Kathryn Mannix:.         https://withtheendinmind.co.uk.           https://twitter.com/drkathrynmannix       More about Aimee Cooper:.         https://www.instagram.com/aimeecooperforms/ More about Louise Daniels: .         https://twitter.com/LouiseDaniels_     .         https://www.instagram.com/louisedanielsofficial/.         http://louise-daniels.com/ https://pauldaniels.tv See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Today’s guest is Dr Sohom Das. Sohom is a Consultant Forensice Psychiatrist working in prisons and criminal courts. He’s also an author. Initially Sohom was going to talk to us about psychiatry and mental health in more general terms, but given the conversations going on all around us about ingrained racism in British society, we decided to focus on asking questions about this in relation to the criminal justice system and mental health systems, both of which are areas that obvious Sohom has experience of as a forensic psychiatrist.Those from black communities are disproportionately represented in both the criminal justice system and the mental health systems. And that’s compounded by the fact that both of those systems seriously disadvantage black people once they are within their remit. Institutional racism exists at every level of our criminal justice system.Firstly, black Britons make up 12% of the prison population even though their proportion in the general population is 3%Black communities are over-represented at every single stage of the criminal justice process from initial contact right through to sentencing. Black people are more likely to get stopped and searched, more likely to get arrested, more likely to get charged and more likely to get convicted than their white contemporaries.Within the mental health system (we know that the criminal justice system can act as a gateway to it so the two are very much linked), the overwhelming evidence is that black patients’ experiences are more negative than those of white patients  - they are more likely to be restrained, isolated and heavily medicated than be supported with counselling.More reading & links related to topics discussed in this episode:https://www.theblackcurriculum.com/actionhttp://www.prisonreformtrust.org.uk/WhoWeArehttps://www.theblackcurriculum.comhttp://diversebooks.orgPetition to update GCSE reading list https://bit.ly/2U6foOlAfua Hirsch On The Crucial Black History Lessons All Schools Should be Teaching for Vogue: https://www.vogue.co.uk/arts-and-lifestyle/article/black-history-education More about Dr Sohom Das:.           Twitter: @Dr_S_Das https://twitter.com/Dr_S_Das.           Media website: http://www.drdas.co.uk.           Short stories: https://www.sdas-author.com            More about Aimee Cooper:.           https://www.instagram.com/aimeecooperforms/ More about Louise Daniels: .            See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Becoming sober or at least sober-curious is something that seems to be on the lips of many mid-lifers. From our late 40s we just can’t drink like we used to, we’re suddenly suffering from ‘hangxiety’, we’re noticing health niggles. It’s probably a time when we should all become more mindful about our boozing. Dave Wilson decided at 55 to ‘go sober’ in January 2019. He created an Instagram account - @soberdave. He quickly found himself part of an incredible online community. Dave has documented his sober journey throughout 2019 in the most open and honest way.
