  1. Why it’s never too late to plan for your future

    Comment
    Article by Naomi Webb Are you one of the quarter of British adults with no savings? A recent study has found that one in four people do not have a financial nest egg for the future because of more pressing priorities – such as sky high monthly outgoings and substantial debt. “Having a healthy savings account is something everybody dreams of, whether it’s money put aside for a rainy day, helping fund your child through university or money saved for comfortable retirement,” said Kris Brewster, head of products for Skipton Building Society, which commissioned the research. “These dreams cannot become a reality without taking time to save in the first place.” Thankfully, it’s never too late to plan for your future. Here’s some...
  2. Business over 50: Networking for introverts

    Comment
    Article by Patricia Bacon Susan Cain sums up lots of great things around introversion in her book, Quiet, and her Ted talk is brilliant to watch (https://www.ted.com/talks/susan_cain_the_power_of_introverts). She shares just how challenging it can be for introverts to have the energy to go out and network – even citing a University Professor who is brilliant at delivering an annual lecture and follow up questions with the audience but finds the idea of a lunch with everyone before his talk just too much to take on so politely declines this. It is also worth noting ‘networking’ isn’t just about going to an event and striking up conversations with strangers – networking permeates all areas of our lives and when done right it can be life enhancing and...
  3. Health over 50: Keeping your gut happy

    Comment
    Article by Gemma Hurditch for CNM (College of Naturopathic Medicine). Many health problems begin, or are worsened, by what’s going on in the gut. Leaky gut and dysbiosis are two of the different malfunctions that can occur.  They are separate conditions that can frequently occur together. Leaky gut Leaky gut refers to a gut lining that is too permeable; like a tea bag that has small tears in it. To get nutrients from our food our microvilli, which are tiny little finger-like projections in the gut lining, filter and absorb broken down food. Nutrients are absorbed into the bloodstream through the gut mucosa (the first layer of cells in the digestive tract).  Sometimes the villi are damaged, or the gut lining is compromised for a number of reasons that can include stress, medications, alcohol, and inflammation.  Then, the tight junctions...

  5. Why Tini Owens continues to play the waiting game for a divorce

    Comment
    By Peter Jones, founder of Jones Myers family law specialist  The high-profile case of Tini Owens has highlighted loud and clear that being unhappily married does not justify being granted a divorce. The Supreme Court ruling that Mrs Owens must stay in a “loveless” marriage to her husband is the culmination of an expensive and protracted legal battle with wider repercussions. The validity of the original evidence that 68-year-old Mrs Owens gave to illustrate the “unreasonable behavior” of 78-year-old Hugh Owens lies at the heart of this landmark case. Mrs Owens filed for divorce in 2015 before moving out of their marital home and the case escalated when Mr Owens refused to agree to a divorce. In 2016 a Family Court judge rejected Mrs Owens 27...
  6. The most intimate menopause questions that women ask, ANSWERED!

    Comment
    Article by consultant gynaecologist Miss Tania Adib fromThe Medical Chambers Kensington The menopause is no longer a dry subject – find out why your vagina might need some therapy, and how you can deal with some of the struggles us women face… I’ve always enjoyed sex but I’m worried that will change after menopause. What changes should I expect?   With menopause, the ovaries stop making oestrogen, which can cause your vagina to become dry and less elastic or ‘stretchy’. For many women, low doses of vaginal oestrogen therapy can help keep the lining of your vagina healthy and can be a useful treatment option. Try not to let the menopause put you off having sex – regular vaginal sexual activity is important for vaginal health post-menopause because it...

  8. Your Watch Or Your Wife

    Comment
    Article by Sally Gee Crunch, oww, bother! The sound of me going into the back of my husbands bike for the second time(I didn’t actually say bother but you get my drift). Not because I wasn’t looking or because I’m faster than him and was overtaking oh no it’s because he’s stopped yet again to look at his new fitness watch! No warning just a brake -lift wrist -press button manoeuvre. Don’t get me wrong I’m really pleased at the grand old age of 56 he’s so committed to his fitness and his constant strive to keep himself healthy. Ok I won’t lie I do miss ever so slightly the kebab,bottle of wine and chocolate nights but it’s important to look after yourself right? Prompted by the loss...
  9. What is the Law of Attraction?

    Comment
    Article by Alexandra Sutcliife Made famous by the 2006 movie The Secret, the Law of Attraction works on the principle that our vibrations, created by our thoughts, are constantly attracting ‘things’ in life, good or bad. Quantum physics states that matter is simply condensed energy, and everything in the world is made of energy, which vibrates at different levels.   Matter contains consciousness, so whatever we think, say or do creates vibrations, which then manipulate the energy in and around us.   Our energy is constantly attracting matching energy, and the starting point for this is our thoughts.  Put simply, thoughts become things. The Law of Attraction is working 24/7, whether we like it or not.  Everything we have in our lives now, both good and bad, we have created...
  10. Coincidence? Or was it really seen in the cards?

    Comment
    Article by Sophie Jenkins In 2015 my friend Cathy, who is gorgeous, intuitive and half French, started reading tarot cards and as practice, she offered to read mine. Me, I’ll try anything, usually, but I didn’t like the idea, mainly because I didn’t believe in it but also because I sort of did. What if she saw bad news in the pack, something that would worry me and keep me awake at night? My life was, after a period of turbulence, currently fine, and if there was trouble ahead, I didn’t really want to know about it in advance. Two months before this, in the summer of 2015, my mother had gone into a dementia care home and surprisingly, considering how hard we’d fought...
