Men have more midlife crises

MORE males than females are experiencing a midlife change in career or lifestyle, according to research carried out by Morgan & Banks.

Morgan & Banks’ John Banks said more than 40 per cent of respondents believed more males were changing their lifestyles midstream than females, with stress being the motivator as distinct from boredom.

“Boredom is attributed to 35.7 per cent of male sea change, 23.3 per cent to stress and 20 per cent to the burnout factor,” Mr Banks said.

“Health awareness was low on the scale with only 5.5 per cent citing this as a reason.”

Boredom figured as a big issue in the health/medical/pharmaceutical, advertising, resources and tourism industries, while stress featured prominently in retail, media and financial services.
