    7
    Article by Carole Spiers Being over 50 can be the beginning of a new chapter in your life; a time of growth and a period of regeneration. Middle age may be upon you but you have the experience and possibly the lines on your face that go with it!  Of course, you might wish that they weren’t there but that is another story!  However, they are there and each one tells the tale of your life’s experience. The post 50’s chapter brings not only experience but also brings you greater influence.  This is a time when reality starts biting and the dreams that you had when you were younger may now be drifting away into the mists of early romantic visions.  Having now faced the hard realities of life and the work required...

  6. The Stress Guru’s Festive Season Stress Tips

    Comment
    Article by Carole Spiers December can be a stressful time for many different reasons. The shops are crowded, the weather is often miserable and shortening days and lengthening nights make us feel as though we’re constantly running to keep up with the demands placed upon us. This year the credit crunch will most certainly add to the stress of the festive season for many of us. The pressure to meet the expectations of your family and create a special and memorable Christmas on a reduced budget will be challenging to say the least. Then of course there’s the drain on our bodies created by the party season. This can become an ‘endurance test’, where one office party or social gathering follows another in an endless cycle of late nights and subsequent hangovers. Christmas can be a sad and difficult...
  7. How to Overcome Stress in the Workplace – Part 1

    Comment
    Article by Carole Spiers The first in a series of articles by Carole Spiers – the latest ‘expert’ to join the Fabafterfifty team Q. How do you cope with the stress of insecurity if your company or organization is making redundancies?

If you are in the position of being made redundant, then you can use this time to enable you...
