  1. 9 Most Frequently Asked Questions by women over 50 at an STI Clinic

    Comment
    Article by Dr Elizabeth Kershaw-Yates, GP   There is an increase in the number of STIs being found in women over 50 – in the past 10 years, the number of women over 50 with STIs has doubled. There could be a number of reasons for this – STI awareness campaigns are often targeted at under 25s and may have been missed by over 50s. We spoke to Dr Lizzie at The STI Clinic to answer some of the most common questions she is asked.  1. Can I get STIs from oral sex?  Yes – gonorrhoea, genital herpes and syphilis are the most common infections transmitted through oral sex. Chlamydia, HIV, genital warts, public lice and hepatitis A, B, and C are less commonly transmitted...

  3. Coping with Redundancy in your Fifties

    Comment
    Article by Lianna Champ   Redundancy at any age can be a particularly difficult experience, but when we reach our fifties, we may have the added blow of reduced job opportunities with employers perhaps looking for younger candidates with a longer term investment.   Finding ourselves redundant in our fifties can have a knock on effect in many areas of our lives. Struggling to find a new job can affect our confidence and even our self trust in our ability to achieve. An opportunity to learn new skills Spend some quiet time. There is much inner learning to be found in silence. Learn to trust yourself and tune out any negative voices. Don’t let a fear of an unknown future hold you back, nor your old familiar habits. Sometimes we get...
  4. An introduction to Auras

    Comment
    Article by Alexandra Sutcliffe   Auras are the energy fields that exist around everything, both living and inanimate, created by the vibrations of all the molecules and atoms contained within the particular being or object. There are seven layers to each human aura, and they expand and contract depending on our moods, thoughts and feelings.  They consist of swirling colours that mingle with one another and are constantly moving.   Each represents a different layer of our consciousness, a bit like a mirror, reflecting our experiences as well as our emotional or physical condition.  They are our true essence, created from our vibrations, which in turn are created by everything we think, feel, say and do. Our auras protect us from any harmful energy generated by our surroundings...

    Comment
      Nearly 40% of people over the age of 60 admit to socialising regularly to help keep healthy and active Over 76% feel younger than they actually are A shocking 62% admit to not exercising regularly Forget OAPs, today’s over 60s are truly a ‘Why Not’ generation as they party the night away, enjoy a few cheeky tipples and spend plenty of downtime relaxing.

The results of the survey by Camping in the Forest revealed 76% of over 60’s in the UK have a much younger outlook on life than...
  6. Natural ways to boost radiance for mature skin

    Comment
    By Gemma Hurditch for CNM (College of Naturopathic Medicine). Hydration inside and out is very important for our skin. Aim for 2 litres of water per day – try caffeine-free, skin-loving herbal teas such as nettle, rooibos and rosehips. Red clover tea is also lovely for mature skin, it contains phytoestrogens so can be supportive of those going through menopause and beyond. Red clover tea needs to be steeped in hot water for about 30 minutes to extract full flavour, so use a teapot with a tea cosy and 2 teaspoons of the herb per cup for best results. If unwanted facial hair is a concern, spearmint and green tea can be a useful addition for supporting hormone balance. Reduce alcohol intake, particularly if redness or rosacea is...
  7. 5 Signs You’re Lonely and 5 tips to feel less so

    Comment
    Article by Carole Ann Rice You can have over 1,000 friends on Facebook and still feel lonely. Those feelings of disconnection and isolation is something we all experience at some point but aren’t always aware of. Top Life Coach Carole Ann Rice knows the difference between having no plans on a Friday night and loneliness. So, here are her top five signs you may be lonely, and her tips to combat it: 1. Emotional pain – being lonely is emotionally painful. You may feel as if you’re looking through the window of life at everyone else having fun, but you’re not there with them enjoying it like they are. Solution – Why: find out why you’re lonely; do you not have many colleagues at work, you’re not close to your family? Or...
  8. There’s more to yoga than being flexible!

    Comment
    Article by Annie Moore   There is a myth that yoga is only possible for those who are bendy! This could be due to the flood of yoga contortionists posting on social media. Yoga is not actually about how flexible you are, it’s about focusing more on the mind than the body. You could say it is a type of meditation through movement, where you learn to stay in the present and focus on your inner self, your soul. It’s about withdrawal of the senses and preventing the chatter of your mind – the monkey mind from taking over. I would like to show you how learning to control the breath can help you mobilise and strengthen your physical body without forcing or straining into...
  9. Why there’s nothing wrong with investing in your style

    Comment
    Article by Jacynth Bassett Most of us have heard the phrase ‘there are more important things in life than clothes’. And yes, that is true. But if you’re anything like me – i.e. a fashion lover –  it’s a somewhat grating comment because underlying the statement is usually a sense of judgement. Fashion and clothes are still largely looked down upon by society as frivolous and self-indulgent. Just ask Anna Wintour who admitted somewhat sadly in the documentary The September Issue that her brother (diplomatic editor for the Guardian) and sister (a human-rights worker) find what she does ‘amusing’. Now undoubtedly Wintour’s siblings have highly respectful and important careers, but Anna doesn’t receive the same respect because of the industry she...
  10. The Pros and Cons of working with your life partner 

    Comment
    Article by Patricia Bacon Couplepreneurs are emerging as an economic segment that is somewhat unknown, undiscovered, undervalued and unrecognised. I hope to change that and normalise the idea of embarking on running a business with your life partner rather than have people look at me in disbelief when I tell them that couples are doing this. Couplepreneurs  – a global community for couple owned businesses to meet, share and inspire their stories and come together to support and be supported through the trusted advisor network within the community – intends busting open the myths around couples living and working together. It’s definitely an emotive subject so what are the real benefits and challenges of working with your life partner? You are ‘All In’ and...
