Introducing The Midlife Edit.

Gail McNeill – Author

At the age of 56, I’ve written my first book which is a transformational self-help manual primarily for women. It’s called ‘The Midlife Edit’. I wrote it in response to the thousands of messages I receive each month from women asking for my help.

I want to completely change the narrative around midlife and menopause. For me it’s been a blessing. I know that the menopause is more than the change in our hormones. We find ourselves with empty nests, perhaps a stagnant career, or being hit with thoughts of ‘is this it?’


‘The Midlife Edit’ is more than a book; it’s a movement designed to change the way women approach midlife and beyond. In a world that often places undue emphasis on youth, this book aims to redefine ageing as a stage of life that offers wisdom, vitality, and an opportunity for personal growth. By addressing the physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects of ageing, ‘The Midlife Edit’ equips women with practical tools, profound insights, and actionable steps to navigate this life chapter with grace, confidence, and renewed spirit.

Key Highlights:

  • Empowering Mindset Shifts: The book guides readers through the transformative process of shifting their mindset from fear of ageing to embracing the beauty and potential that come with it.
  • Holistic Well-Being: ‘The Midlife Edit’ offers a holistic approach, encompassing physical health, emotional well-being, and mental clarity. It addresses nutrition, exercise, self-care, and mindfulness practices tailored to the needs of women.
  • Unveiling Inner Beauty: The book encourages readers to discover their inner radiance, promoting self-love and body acceptance. 
  • Navigating Transitions: The book assists women in navigating midlife transitions, including relationships, career changes, and redefining purpose.
  • Community and Connection: ‘The Midlife Edit’ fosters a sense of community among women, inspiring them to share experiences, support each other, and celebrate the journey together.

As an author, I am not only deeply passionate about this topic, but I have also personally experienced the transformative power of embracing midlife with positivity and vitality. Through relatable stories, and actionable guidance, I have crafted a book that speaks directly to the hearts of women, offering them a roadmap to embrace their unique journey.’

Two incredibly supportive women have helped me realise this dream, both keen to change the narrative and uplift the vibe around midlife and menopause. I’m living proof that it’s never too late to start something new and I’m excited to share this journey with you.
