  3. What About Me? Maintaining a relationship with your ex-boyfriend’s kids post-breakup

    Comment
    Article By Dani Alpert How did I feel when my boyfriend Julian and I broke up after nearly eight years and the fate of my relationships with his kids, Nicole and Tyler, unknown? It felt like I’d been fired, asked to pack up my belongings and leave the house key under the mat. For years, my identity had everything to do with Julian and the kids. I contorted, knotted, and sacrificed, investing my time and emotional energy into our relationships. And over time, I fell in love with them, only to see it all implode. I remember my first thought was, “What happens now? What happens to me and Nicole and Tyler? Could I still call myself the Girlfriend Mom? Was I the Ex-Girlfriend Mom?” The kids and I...
  4. Expectancy: the secret to finding love at any age

    Comment
    Article by Penelope Winters Many women spend time obsessing over which attitude will best serve them in their quest for love in later life; whether they have loved and lost before or are yet to experience the delight that is first love. One question many friends have asked me over the years is if it, and by “it” I mean the relationship they have been waiting for, will happen when they least expect it or if they should approach the task of finding a partner in a mentally pro-active way: meditating, visualising, affirming all with a view to magnetising a wonderful man into their lives. Both recommendations have their merits, some think that a boiling pot never boils and that by concentrating too much energy on...
  5. Why Working Out is More Important Than Ever in Your 50s

    Comment
      Some people are later bloomers, finding love, a good career, and other successes when they are older, and viewing exercise like this shouldn’t be any different if you’ve never been someone who was into working out. There are many who may write off getting fit because they feel like they’re too old. However, there’s no such thing as being too old to work out, and as you age, you’re going to need it more than ever. While you’re probably not going to transform into an Olympic bodybuilder in your later years, you can improve your body and even give the younger people a run for their money. Here are some reasons why working out is so important as you age. It Improves Your Cognition Many people want t get...
  6. The Sun Lounger Principle: A Simple Way to Live Life to the Full over 50

    Comment
    By Gavin Oattes, author of Life Will See You Now We’ve all heard of NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) right? Described as “an attitude of curiosity and a willingness to experiment that has left behind a trail of techniques.” Science Digest describes it as, “the most powerful vehicle for change in existence.” Now, I’m not prepared to argue with anyone on NLP and its benefits, while I believe it offers so much to so many, I think it has also got a tad crowded in its offerings. NLP practitioners are now in abundance and among the greats unfortunately we now have the ones who are kinda making stuff up. Let me introduce you to SLP. The Sun Lounger Principle is a simple technique that anyone can apply to their...

  8. How tuning in to your ‘gut-brain’ connection can help to manage mental health issues

    Comment
    By health expert and author Sara Davenport Brain health has never seemed such a priority.  We are facing a tsunami of metal health problems – statistics show that one in four people (in the UK) will suffer from anxiety and depression in any given year. On top of that, the dementia epidemic facing our increasingly ageing population has become as frightening as the threat of cancer. Only recently (18th February 2020), a report by Alzheimer Europe has revealed that “the number of people with dementia is set to double by 2050”. I frequently get asked about the connection between the brain and the gut on my blog (www.reboothealth.co.uk), and it’s a subject that I’ve written extensively about in my latest book...

  10. How to Celebrate Valentine’s Day as a Single Person

    Comment
    Article by Dr Tony Ortega   Ah, Valentine’s Day. The one day of the year coupled individuals are forced by this weird societal norm to do something special for their partner/romantic interest. The singles sit on the sidelines feeling left out and less than; beating themselves up for being single. We, as single individuals, need to challenge this. First, let’s take a look at the history of Valentine’s Day.   Its origins date back to Roman times in which fertility was celebrated and women were paired off to men by way of lottery as the festival of Lupercalia. Towards the end of the fifth century, Lupercalia was replaced with St. Valentines. There is no real identified person that was St. Valentine. There is a legend of a...
