"Dr. Olga Tolscik beckons us to a journey of self-discovery in her book, Midlife Mindset. A psychiatrist specializing in women’s mental health, Dr. Tolscik uses personal experiences, stories and concrete advice that can be used to help us shift our perspective about who we are – from what we eat and drink to how we move, how we interact with others – to who we can be as we reflect on our past, present and future."
