Midlife Crisis and Depression

Many people, usually men (women have their own 'special' time later in life), some time from their mid-thirties and upwards suffer what is popularly called a 'mid-life crisis'. The word 'crisis' literally means a turning point or 'crossroads' with a choice of two or more directions. It usually involves dissatisfaction over one's vocation, job, career – the way of supporting self and family financially, or an unhappy personal relationship. Often it's a combination and it may also be part of clinical depression.

Mid life crisis is a mostly mental condition but there can also be physical symptoms and deterioration. Women go through menopause usually around the age of 50. While this is due to physical change in a woman's the body, mental processes are affected too.

Midlife crisis comes about by perceived lack of success in coping with important issues and the stresses of life today. It usually occurs between the ages of 30 and 60. Career issues, finances and the ability to provide for the present, let alone enough income for the future and retirement and possibly boredom from years of routine, repetitive business or social activity, separation or divorce (relationship change or failure) are a few of the main causes.

A more recent contributor to the mid life crisis is the economic upheavals of the past few years, where people have lost their jobs, homes, life savings and more. Debt is an awful burden to carry although most of those around you may be in the same position. Getting rid of debt should be a primary goal for anyone who wants to get on their feet again financially. It's tough, but it can be done in time and there are ways to make reducing debt easier.

Different people are affected in different ways. Symptoms include irritability, loss of sex drive (libido), impotence (erectile dysfunction), fatigue, low moods, inexplicable sadness, lethargy, lack of ambition and motivation and it can develop into to 'full-blown depression'.

Some will recognize this 'crisis' in their lives early enough and are still sufficiently motivated to do something about it. They look for ways to make major changes. Many look to professional counselling or guidance to look for a career change Others will move to another country, start a new business or find alternative ways to make money. Online business and other activities are probably the easiest in this respect as a computer with internet connection is really the only requirement.

Those who tend to keep problems of a personal nature to themselves may gradually withdraw from their family, friends and society and suffer in silence, possibly unaware of what is going on themselves. They need support and should be encouraged to seek help. This need not mean doctors or therapy. Often some inspiration is enough to trigger a recovery.

Without early recognition of the symptoms and one of several forms of treatment, either medical, therapeutic or both, depression can become a debilitating or even life-threatening condition. Levels range between a temporary feeling of low spirits all the way to suicidal feelings, if not actual attempts.

Hypnosis – regain your well-being through self-help

Due to misunderstanding of the topic, hypnotism still gets some 'bad press'; sometimes just the mention of the subject draws derision and claims of scam or fraud. In reality, learning how to use self-hypnotic techniques correctly can improve many aspects of one's life – physically as well as mentally. Hypnosis and more specifically self-hypnosis has helped many people cope with their mid life problems including midlife crisis and even full-blown depression. Learn more on our hypnosis pages.

There is an inexpensive program available specifically for coping with a personal midlife crisis which is really a signal that something needs changing in your life or your perspective. Dissatisfaction can be the first step to positive change and life enhancement. Boredom, disillusionment and an awareness that we all have limited time available are powerful motivators to seize the moment and begin living life more productively and satisfyingly.

Overcoming Midlife Crisis deals with these issues and gets you feeling more relaxed, optimistic and energetic about the future. Learn more and then for a few dollars (as little as $7.99 if you order other titles that interest you), download the audio program and start benefiting. Listen to it on any mp3 player or computer and soon you will be able to start eliminating your pessimism about the future and become excited about your life again.


Depression is of course more serious and can happen at any age from the teens to the mature and retired people for many different reasons. While medical diagnosis should be obtained, for those who recognise they have a problem, but would rather try a non-medical solution first, again self-hypnosis can play its part.

There is a full course available called the Uncommon Knowledge Depression Program which is arguably the most powerful self-help tool available today for depression. It can be your way out of depression and back to a normal, fulfilling life. And it will keep depression away too.

It is important to understand that depression demotivates you and so the idea of starting such a program may seem difficult. That is why this program has been made easy (even fun!) to read, and it is carefully structured in a step-by-step way.

When you are depressed your brain is exhausted, which makes learning difficult. So each 'session' is backup up by an audio download to give you the chance to relax regularly and absorb new information slowly. Hypnosis for depression relief is quick because of the 'recovery effect' it has on an exhausted brain.

What you need to understand is that this program does not replace the help you can get from a qualified professional – having a sympathetic understanding ear available can make all the difference. On the other hand, if you are already getting help, it will make that help all the more effective.
