Episode details

Karen Midyet, a clinical psychologist, reinvented herself in her 50s (after a three-year “retirement”) as a retirement coach and specialist on older adults. With more than 45 year of experience as a counselor and coach, she shares some of her wisdom about a number of topics, including:

  • What makes the transition to retirement so difficult

  • How to incorporate structure in your life, while remaining firmly in charge

  • How older adults can reinvent or repurpose themselves to live the life they want

  • Why it’s okay to make mistakes or false starts when no one is keeping score

  • The importance of social connections, physical activity, and nutrition on physical and cognitive health.
