The way in which the woman’s brain works , starts from the moment of sexual differentiation, but beyond biology, perhaps the brain morphology is exactly the same in men as in women, although it is also said that there are differences : Being a woman imposes challenges and social responsibilities that will stimulate our brain to develop differently, hormones and their changes throughout our lives, also provide us with distinctive brain capacities.

How a woman’s brain works after 40

For a 40-year-old woman, middle age places them at the center of two generations: one that must turn around and evaluate the past, and another that must plan the halfway point that they still have left. Far from the rejection that exists to get older and think that youth is the best time of life, we see that some characteristics that define middle-aged women (cognitive boom, improved control of emotions, life experience and thus, transmitter of knowledge and values), make this time the best period of their lives.

Read on and see why, in this period of life, a woman’s brain works differently, and if she carries out a conscious task, that may be the time to start harvesting seeds of wisdom and stability , because she has everything. to do it.

Emotional balance

At the age of forty they have gone through experiences in all emotional areas : they have been a couple, employees, friends and daughters. Mothers and sisters, a springboard of emotions, a path of resolution, hundreds of challenges and conflicts. They have learned a large number of tools, and from all this they have learned to manage and control themselves, to know and enhance their responses. In this way, they have developed a positive balance in emotions . The hormones are less unstable, so there is more rationality and more orientation to mending and solving relationships.


Due to the fact that, among other things, the need for procreation and the need for constant search have ceased, emotions are stabilized. The woman in her forties will be able to perform better and greater introspections about herself , the veil of anguish and stress from the biological race will have ceased, everything becomes clearer and she begins to see beyond the fog. Goals based on self-knowledge will be undertaken, in the search for the true meaning of life, a magical and wonderful state of lucidity begins to be the protagonist in your decisions if you are able to open that door wide.


After all the doubts in life, after all the difficult choices, most likely you have established a certain level of stability and self-esteem , you know what you are capable of and where your limits have reached, this also comes from the stability of how The brain works, which has already matured, has become strong and with a certain balance, it is now when it begins to put more energy into the work and economic goals that it wants, this is the time of the entrepreneurial brain, and it is very likely that this characteristic her brain quickly brings her closer to success.


Among all the tools that she has developed, she is capable of becoming one of the best warriors, and being assertive implies expressing her thoughts, feelings and beliefs in a direct, honest and appropriate way to the situation in which she finds herself, listening to the other point. out of sight and respecting others. The way a mature woman communicates.

The brain of a mature woman works coordinated and slowly, like the best of ballads, when she reaches four decades in life, she is at the center of the two generations. Looking back, you will see what you have learned, lost and gained, and looking ahead, you will see your new projects with clear eyes and will have enough strength to undertake a new and lucid way of life. It would be easier.

“ A mature woman does not provoke, she is already provocative.
She is not smart, she is wise.
It is not hinted at, it shows the way subtly.
He does not rush, he waits for the right moment.

No nothing, browse.
It does not fly, it floats.
He does not think in quantities, he prefers quality.
He does not see, he observes.

It does not walk, it walks.
It is not pretentious, it is simply liked.
It does not judge, it analyzes.
It does not compare, it assimilates.

It does not console, it warms the heart.
It does not seek, it awakens the senses.
He doesn’t put chains on, he lets go…
Because he knows what he wants, how he wants it and when he wants it. – Anonymous
