  1. 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.

    Comment
    Article by Fab after Fifty Tired of being tired? Don’t remember when was the last time you had your eight hour beauty sleep? Don’t worry, you are not alone: 1 in 5 Brits admit that they don’t get enough sleep every single day!* We asked our Nutritionists to tell us what and when to eat to sleep well and wake up fresh. Eat yourself to sleep   Bird with superpowers Make sure that you have enough protein during the day. ‘High-protein foods are meats, fish, beans and lentils, seeds and nuts (choose unsalted and raw rather than roasted).  Protein foods provide the amino acid tryptophan, which converts to the hormones serotonin and melatonin, which is needed for good sleep. Avoid too much high-protein food in the last few hours before bed however, as they can...

    Comment
    Article by Fab after Fifty Navigating the world of online dating can be daunting. Apparently nearly half of new relationships for the over 50s start online..but where do you begin? Creating your online dating profile. It might be tempting to use that fabulously flattering photo taken of you on holiday 10 years ago, but if you no longer look like that you are only setting up yourself and any prospective date for disappointment. To date successfully online you really do need to create a profile that is as an accurate reflection of the real you as possible! If you meet somebody in person that you have connected with online, then you do not want your first impression to be one of disappointment. So with that in mind, here are our...
  4. Men’s Biggest Fashion Mistakes as Told by Women

    Comment
    Article by Fab after Fifty Keeping up with the latest fashions is hard work and it’s easy to make a mistake in the fashion world due to its ever-changing nature. It’s not only women who can fall short in the fashion department, as many men can also make mistakes when it comes to what’s hot and what’s not. Here are some of the biggest fashion mistakes made by men – according to women. Cycling Shorts There’s nothing worse than seeing a man in a pair of short, tight shorts. According to 84% of women asked in a poll, one of the most common mistakes made by men – especially during the summer – is pulling on a pair of cycling shorts and going shopping or to the beach. Board shorts,...
  5. 5 Ways Clean Eating Has A Positive Effect On Your Body

    Comment
    Article by Fab after Fifty Life moves at such a rapid pace today that we tend to neglect our diet and go for what we think will be the easiest option. So often we’ll make the choice of eating a meal that’s quick to microwave or just heat up. The problem is that these foods tend to be heavily processed with added fats, sugars and salt – all dietary no no’s! As a reaction to this, and supported by a number of nutritionists and celebrities alike, the clean eating movement has emerged over the last few years. Essentially it relies on eating food that has had minimal or no processing, having a balance of protein, carbohydrates and fat in each meal and having more and smaller meals throughout the day.   Sounds good already? Well, wait till...

    Comment
    Buying a new car is both exciting and daunting at the same time, unless you’re a car expert and a genius at negotiations.

This guide will tell you how to go about buying a car, successfully.

  7. Cruise Holiday Q&As

    Comment
    With misconceptions about the cruise industry still prevalent in the minds and polite conversations of many holiday-lovers – the team over at cruise specialist travel agent, Cruise1st, have helped us answer some of the most common questions we are asked about holidays on the seas, as well as a few questions we had ourselves. Should I choose a big ship or a small ship? There are benefits to holidaying on big ships and small ships, so it comes down to personal preference and what you expect from the trip.

    Comment
    Article by FabafterFifty Renewing your wedding vows can be a great way of celebrating and reaffirming your love and commitment to one another. While most people often hold a renewal ceremony on a big anniversary such as their 10th, 25th or 50th year of marriage, it is not uncommon to hold such a ceremony much closer to the date of the original ceremony.

In order to help you make the most of such a ceremony, we have put together a handy list of things you should, and shouldn’t do...
  9. Technology for the over 50s: Are Technology Companies Getting it Wrong?

    2
    Article by Fab after Fifty I dread the calls I receive from companies telling me that they have a technology product that I just ‘have to try’ on behalf of my readers. It usually involves a phone or tablet with big buttons or limited features. Speaking from personal experience it would take a lot for a technology company to create a product especially for the ‘over 50s’ to attract my friends and I away from our smartphones and ipads. Although I can see why this technology might be attractive to my parents generation. Having said that a friend has just bought her 80 year old mother an ipad for Christmas – she loves it – especially being able to talk to her grandchildren via Facetime! Is this another industry developing and marketing products with...
  10. Not just old age: The medical conditions health professionals can fail to recognise

    Comment
    Article by FabafterFifty Often, as the years creep by, it can be tempting to put potential medical symptoms down to simply getting older. But, there are certain conditions which are more common in the over 50s so it’s important for patients and GPs to be vigilant. Here are just some of the cases which highlight why…   CERVICAL CANCER   The average age of cervical cancer sufferers is 48 and symptoms of cervical cancer and the menopause can have similarities. In both, irregular bleeding is common. But, despite that, one grandmother’s GP failed to look at the possibility of cervical cancer when she visited complaining of fever and experiencing heavy bleeding. A year after 55-year-old Cheryl Humpage first went to her GP with symptoms, she was finally diagnosed with cervical cancer. But, by...
