All The Tools You Need To Midlife, Redefined is my new book.

It was the book I needed to read when my own midlife needed a bit of attention. I have spent the last decade researching and writing about women, and while also being a women myself in midlife, trying to figure out how to keep myself at the centre of the midlife maelstrom.

Midlife, Redefined is aimed at women from mid-30's to mid/late 60's who want to invest more time and thought on themselves, and the life they want to be living.

As you well may know, while it's an amazing time to be a woman in midlife today with an extra 2/3 decades of being younger for longer, it can also be extremely overwhelming! It's easy to end up being so many things to so many people for so long, you can forget who you are to yourself.

  • Self-Discovery - (where am I?, how am I? what am I?, who am I?, am I playing by the right rules?),
  • Midlife Design (blank page, obstacles, ideas and desires, investment, courage)
  • And Action - (habits, goals, motivation, intention, self-compassion)

Each chapter has a theme and a self-reflection / coaching exercise so that by the end, the reader will have her own bespoke midlife plan or (wo)manual.


Some feedback:

"I really loved the combination of practical exercises, personal stories and new concepts. And I must confess to putting it aside – often – to really think long and deep about what I'd just read. And sometimes to cry or make notes. Ironically, this means that NOT reading it was sometimes the most important thing to do: to just sit with the ideas, the stories, and just THINK. And feel.

You speak to your audience, Alana, in a way that's profoundly personal. Reading Midlife, Redefined is like meeting your best, best friend and opening your heart to her over the best G&T ever. I laughed, I cried, I wrote copious notes-to-self and ultimately I made the conscious decision to celebrate this most misunderstood time of life. Your book, Alana, is nothing less than a rite of passage.

"This is a brilliant book. and is going to help so many women. It made me tear up at times, the words are that powerful. If you're stuck in a life of spinning plates that you don't remember picking up, you need to read this book. You'll learn how to put more you into your life and love it."

“Just had to say it is awesome. The tone is totally perfect, engaging and just honest.  Bloody love it! I am fussy especially with self help books but yours is just so natural, I can’t put into words but it just grabs you and you just want to keep going & going. It’s knowledgeable and just full of Information but is a best friend kinda way.”
