I recently had the pleasure of reading “Distress-Free Aging” by Amy Sherman. It’s a meaningful 65 page E-book that I read in an afternoon but has lessons for a lifetime.

Amy has answers for questions many baby boomers (like me) may have like:

Who am I -- and where do I go from here?
Why can’t I succeed on my own?
Why is every day so boring and uninspiring?
What is it I really want to accomplish?
Is it really possible to be content at this stage of my life?

The book is full of insight from Amy’s years a licensed mental health counselor. It combines her experience, with research, insight exercises and humor. Lots of humor. In fact, there is a whole chapter devoted to having a sense of humor. I picked up a cute one-liner from Charles Schultz—“Just remember once you’re over the hill, you begin to pick up speed.” That has certainly been the case in my life!

These days—with my own book tour, The Mydols, my job and raising two teenage boys—I’m feeling like I am travelling at the speed of light and it’s stressing me out. No worries now though. I picked up some strategies for “Releasing Emotions” in Chapter 8. This book is GREAT!

You can find out more about “Distress-Free Aging” by visiting The book is only $27 and EVERYONE can get something out of it. (Even if you think you are already doing everything right!) And isn't $27 cheap for having a future bigger than you ever imagined?

Yesterday the blog tour was hosted at Rosie Horners blog at and tomorrow it will continue with Lisa Fredette's blog at
