"Adulting" is the practice of behaving in a way characteristic of a responsible adult, especially the accomplishment of mundane, but necessary tasks.

For women who are 40-something, adulting has expanded meaning as they take stock of where and who they are in life and how they the feel.

A new, central Ohio event called “Navigating Adulthood: The 40-Something Woman” is aimed at helping women of this age range clear a path toward happiness.
