The Journal of Midlife Health (JMH) has proven to be a landmark milestone in the journey of Indian Menopause Society (IMS)! It has been our (Dr. Annil Mahajan and Dr. Ranu Patni) proud privilege to have served this prestigious journal as chief editors for 2 years (2018–2020). This is the last issue of our tenure.

We thank the previous editors, Dr. Neelam Aggarwal and Dr. Sudhaa Sharma, for being unconditionally supportive in our efforts to maintain the high standard of JMH set by them and all previous editors.

COVID-19 pandemic has overtaken all other academic pursuits in recent times. On a lighter note, COVID-19 is said to have “CLOSED PLANET EARTH FOR REPAIRS!” This new strain of Coronavirus has taken the world by storm and has made the future unpredictable. When globalization is at its peak, this viral outbreak has outlined the significance of “Social Distancing!” Whatever the end results might be, it has surely taught us that basics should not be forgotten. Measures such as hygiene, healthy diet, exercise, and observing family values are being reinvented! Spending more time at home will surely encourage more reading. JMH with its excellent scientific content will make good reading material in these testing times!

This issue itself carries a variety of excellent academic articles on many aspects of midlife health including osteoporosis, metabolic syndrome, anxiety along with case reports on surgical techniques and unusual findings in breast cancer cases. The original article comparing the effect of resistance exercises versus aerobic exercises in postmenopausal women suffering from insomnia shows that both types of exercises are effective in reducing insomnia in the postmenopausal women. However, resistance exercises were found to be more beneficial than aerobic exercises in this study. The significance of lifestyle and exercise cannot be emphasized enough in maintaining a healthy postmenopausal life!

“The search for excellence never ends!” Dr. Ranu Patni and I (Dr. Annil Mahajan) have strived hard to keep up the scientific standard of JMH. We have thoroughly enjoyed working together.

We sincerely thank our editorial board, the peer-reviewers, the authors, governing council of the last two years, Ms. Arshia from IMS office, and the entire staff of Medknow, especially Mr. Sandeep Chugh. We heartily welcome our new chief editors for the next two years Dr. Meeta Singh and Dr. Vishal Tandon and handover this prestigious baton with confidence. We wish JMH a very bright future!
