If you’re like many women, turning 50 may have been a bit of a shock for you, maybe even downright difficult as you contemplated the inevitable passing of time and eyed some surprising changes to your body. This milestone — half a century on this earth! — certainly is momentous, but that doesn’t mean it can’t bring a renewed commitment to your health and well-being.
