THE EASY AGING® SHOW | Aging Gracefully, Midlife Identity, Lack of Energy, Empty Nester, Retirement

Midlife Clarity * Identity * Mindset * Life Hacks * Creativity Does a lack of midlife energy have you doubting yourself? Are you struggling to find your purpose now that you’re an empty nester?... Are you nervous about what life will look like once you retire as you go from 40-60 hours a week to zero?... Hi, I’m Michelle Zavala. Jesus Follower. Nap Lover. Lifelong Learner. Fun Seeker. Pilates Devotee. I’m also the Easy Aging® Expert who specializes in helping forward-focused Midlifers answer the big “What Now?” question for the second half of life. I remember feeling lost and directionless after my mother passed away in 2016. When I resurfaced from my grieving, I started searching for the answer to the big “What Now?” question that was hanging over me. I realized that I wanted to use my 25+ years of personal development experience and my coaching certification to make life lighter and easier for other midlifers. So I do this with my 3-part proprietary process called The ACE Approach, which stands for awareness, clarity and ease. In this podcast, you’ll hear midlife stories that make you think, learn simple life hacks that make it easy to take action, hear interviews with experts that will keep you feeling youthful, and discover strategies that will help you believe in yourself again. My mission is to inspire you to reclaim your energy, find your midlife identity, live out your purpose with joy, and get unstuck from where you are right now. With this, you can be at peace with the direction of your life and the legacy you’ll be leaving. If you’re ready to go after your dreams without apology and revel in the juicy moments of life that make your heart sing, you’ve come to the right place… So grab a cup of joe or a glass of The Red and hit “play.” This is going to be a fun ride!
