Welcome to my author website! As a counselor and writer, my mission is to offer science-based tips to help you create more happiness, health, self-confidence, compassion, and purpose at every age and stage of your life. My latest book is devoted to the topic of healthy aging. In all my essays, blogs, and books, I strive to communicate helpful information in a way that is conversational, entertaining, and enlightening. Descriptions of my two books are below, along with buying options. For a sampling of my blogs, click above on the "BLOG" page.
In her latest book, Silver Sparks: Thoughts on Growing Older, Wiser, and Happier (2020), Meg Selig explains why older people are happier people and how you can add joy to your own later years. Here she has collected her most popular blogs on aging from psychologytoday.com, along with brand-new personal essays, quote pages, and mini-essays (“Sparks”), all providing guidance, fun, and inspiration. Topics include:
• Happiness in the older years
• Fighting your own ageism
• How to stay confident as you age
• Life with a hard-of-hearing partner
• Finding purpose as you age
• Easing the fear of death
• And many more.
Silver Sparks is part self-help, part memoir, and completely entertaining.
