  1. How To Choose The Best SIM Only Deal

    Comment
      Going for a contract phone can often seem like the easy option. However, buying a phone outright and getting a SIM-only deal can get you a better deal in the long run. A look at your budget  and phone usage will generally determine which is the best option for you. If you are looking to cut down expenses to boost your budget, SIM only deals are the best way to get cheaper mobile phone bills, saving you some extra money. If you can afford to buy a brand new phone upfront, or you are close to the end of your present contract, a SIM only deal is a good option for you. SIM only deals are quite different from your typical smartphone contracts that often extend to...
  2. Just A Few Reasons Why Good Health May Depend on Your Gut

    Comment
    We all care a lot about our health, especially when we reach our fifties. With the rise of an almost-infinite number of different fitness programs, diet regimens, and services dedicated to providing medical screening tests, it certainly seems like the majority of us are willing to go to some pretty great lengths in order to ensure that we are performing and feeling our best, and are also spared the tragedy of serious illness. But, until recently, whenever people spoke about effective health practices, the gut was never mentioned – or, at least not in any more than a passing manner. Today, however, everything has changed. Research conducted in the last few years has increasingly revealed the incredible complexity and power of our guts – and the...

  4. Pursuing creative projects after 50

    Comment
    The idea that we are only creative when we are young is an unfortunately common misconception. As with many processes, it varies from person to person: while some tend to peak earlier, others enjoy a spurt of creativity in later years. One thing that’s for sure is our productivity tends to wane as the years go by, but do not let this deter you. Not only does time usually free up in later years, but creativity can go at whatever pace you choose. Take Julia Child, for example: the popular chef found fame with her TV show The French Chef when she was in her 50s. Or how about Grandma Moses, an American painter whose first real break came about when she...

    Comment
    5 Benefits of a Gym-Level Workout at Home We all know how important health and fitness can be to a happy life. Regular exercise fights back against obesity, improves your memory, and even helps to prevent illness.

Here are just 5 reasons why you should ditch the membership and create your own at-home workout routine. It’s All About You First of all, if you’ve ever been a member of a particularly popular gym,...
  6. Has the willingness to help others left the building?

    Comment
    After a decade of severe austerity measures and cuts in spending on public services, volunteers are the ones in our country that keep the libraries open and maintain public gardens. Yet despite an ever-growing need for citizens to lend their private time to a good cause, the number of volunteers in the UK has stagnated since the turn of the century. What really astonishes me, however, is the distributional shift in the various age groups among volunteers. Whereas the number of volunteers below the age of 45 has increased in the last years, the share of people between the ages of 55-64 has dropped by 7%. How come that particular people in their fabulous fifties have evidentially ceased to stop supporting good causes? Find...

  9. Top tips to get a good night’s sleep in hot weather

    Comment
    Don’t let the heat affect your sleep – whether its due to hot flushes or hot weather –  you can stay cool and get a good night’s sleep. “While we Brits may not have the hottest summers on record, seasonal factors still have an impact on sleep,” said Lisa Artis at The Sleep Council. “Hot weather can be a nuisance when it comes to bedtime, and while we may celebrate the warmth of the sun and the longer, brighter days – heat can cause havoc when it comes to catching the Zzzs. Lower your body temperature before you sleep “Ideally bedrooms should be around 16-18°C (60-65°F) but if, at nighttime, the outside temperature remains higher, or your bedroom has retained the heat from the day, it can be difficult to keep cool. Your...
  10. What Foods can help you get a Good Night’s Sleep?

    Comment
