Amy Sherman, a Baby Boomer, a licensed mental health counselor and an occasional columnist for Boom This!, found herself in a challenging job a few years ago, but decided she wanted something different. After much soul-searching, she overcame some health challenges and professional setbacks and has found that she is much happier in how she spends her time now.
Her struggles and success are part of her new e-book entitled Distress-Free-Aging: A Boomer's Guide to Creating a Fulfilled Life, a concise and practical tool for helping Boomers realize their dreams and fulfill their passions. The book focuses on the limitations, inhibitions, fears and self-defeating thoughts that sabotage one's good intentions and offers ten strategies to overcome those self-limiting behaviors.
I have been reading the book and find that Amy’s advice is clear and motivating. She offers “Insight Exercises” at the end of each chapter to reinforce what you have just read. As someone who has gone through a lot of similar situations as a Baby Boomer, Amy is a good guide through the changes we encounter as we age.
