Men experience a midlife crisis at an average age of 43.
The Modern Middle Age Crisis
A middle age crisis, also known as a midlife crisis, is a very real experience for many people. The issue that makes this transition in life so difficult for some and not for others is not fully understood. Generally researchers and mental health professionals agree that it is a combination of factors including fear of aging, personality type, past anxiety or depression issues, dissatisfaction with some aspect of your personal and professional life as well as thoughts of pending death and decline in functioning in many areas of life that contribute to the issue.
Learning coping skills and making effective lifestyle changes that allow the individual to feel good about themselves as they age is critical in dealing with all aspects of a middle age crisis. The earlier these behavioural and thought changes are addressed the less damage that is done to relationships, professional status and to the family as a whole.
