This book is packed with informative, funny, practical, reassuring advice for men facing their middle years.
Coping with change can sometimes be downright difficult for middle-aged men and their families. Richard Gates and Robin Hammond use real-life experiences to highlight the light and dark sides of midlife:
- Erogenous zone or twilight zone? Your sex life can actually improve in midlife - sprints are out, medium- and long-distance activities are in!
- Once men reach middle age they often leave a long-term relationship for a younger partner. This behaviour is sometimes accompanied by the purchase of expensive red sportscars or motorcycles that can rip your arms out of your sockets on acceleration.
- With sleep apnea, you often wake with a high heart rate, gasping or gulping for air . . . in many cases you use as much oxygen as in climbing Mt Everest without oxygen tanks! Is it any wonder you are tired and excessively sleepy the next day?
- Once of the big shocks that comes with middle age is your changing appearance. The first wrinkle is the worst!
'Men In Midlife' provides the answers you need to confidently deal with problems relating to sex, sleep, work, depression and stress, exercise and diet, and how to improve your relationship skills. Women, too, will better understand their male partners at this difficult time of life. As the emotional rollercoaster of previous years slows and diminishes, many men find a sense of peace. Now is a good time to improve your self-image and health, to renew relationships, and to reassess your life's direction.
