I was recently sent an early copy of The Smart Woman’s Guide to Midlife & Beyond. Someone at the publisher had read my blog and thought the book might be a good fit with what I write about. What to do when you start forgetting things is just one of the questions they answer in the book.
Written by two doctor, they've compiled a guide based on the real questions their patients have come to them with over the years. This makes the guide practical, relevant and real rather than purely academic and also allows you to use the guide both as a comprehensive overview of the changes to their bodies that women face through the years or as a reference to look up specific issues.
The book is a good mix of the medical and the everyday practical and what’s really clear is that although some of the issues discussed may not become priorities until midlife, there are plenty of reminders that living well now will pay dividends in the future.
So I’d say the book is worth a read at any age – for those who’ve reached midlife it will provide a lot of answers and save you some potential anxiety. It’s also useful for younger readers as it offers motivation to stay on track with looking after yourself each and every day.
For more details, take a look at the guide here and it may just answer any questions you've ever wanted to ask the doctor.
