More about Dr. Ellen Albertson
While we learn about her book, Rock Your Midlife: 7 Steps to Transform Yourself and Make Your Next Chapter Your Best Chapter, Dr. Ellen Albertson is more than just an author. She is a psychologist, registered dietician, board-certified health and wellness coach, teacher, and more. She has dedicated her time and energy to helping millions of women learn to love themselves and the stage they are in.
Rock Your Midlife
Dr. Ellen Albertson shared that her inspiration for writing her book was finding a way to reach millions of women in an easy, approachable way. Through her book, she provides the 7 steps she has found to completely transform your mind, body, and spirit no matter the chapter of your life. Her 7 steps include…
- Energize Yourself
- Reprogramming your Mind
- Empowering Yourself
- Rehabbing your Relationships
So many of us think, If I can just accomplish [insert any goal here], then I will be happy and love myself. In reality, this is a lie. True happiness and self-love starts with self-compassion, leaving the backpack of not-enoughness in the dust.
Thankfully, self-compassion is a skill that can be learned and practiced. It will help us reduce body shame and improve our appreciation for our bodies and the stages of life we are in.
Be a Warrior, Not a Worrier
It may be easier said than done without the right tools and practice, but worrying really doesn’t serve us. It doesn’t bring solutions. It’s like praying about what you don’t want. Manifesting in the negative instead of moving into the positive.
Instead of worrying and fretting over the small things, whether that’s our age or a hard day at work, we should shift our focus onto our strengths.
Embrace All of Our Emotions
Finally, it’s important to remember that we should embrace all of our emotions. Our emotions have a message for us. They give us information about our lives and where we’re at. By embracing the ebbs and flows, we allow ourselves to be open. In turn, we will be able to actually feel more highs and appreciate them when they come.
As women reach their forties and mid-life, there are so many things going on mentally and physiologically. Learning to embrace the changes and the emotions will allow us to embrace the experience, bringing us more joy in the journey ahead.
