  1. Facial Exercise: Four Basic exercises by Carme Farré to tone the face and reduce wrinkles

    Comment
    Exercises by Carme Farré Ageing is a natural and unavoidable part of life, yet many of us are keen to find a solution to help us look our best. Treatments and products play a big part, and facial fitness is the latest technique designed to slow down the natural signs of ageing. FaceToned® Facial Fitness was created by Pilates teacher Carme Farré. It is based around the theory that we work out the muscles in our body regularly, yet the muscles in our face tend to get forgotten.

Carme says: “By toning the facial muscles, we start to reduce fine lines and loose skin. The technique focuses on the...
  2. What To Do if You or Your Spouse Has a Midlife Crisis

    Comment
    There’s a lot of controversy surrounding the idea of a midlife crisis. Maybe it’s a myth. Maybe it comes in so many different variations that it’s hard to describe. Still, many adults go through a stage where they feel washed up or question the meaning of their lives. They may follow the old stereotype of buying a sports car or join the newer trend of excessive exercise. Whether you visit a Jaguar dealership or a gym, the reaction often has more to do with specific events than with age. You’ll usually find some trigger such as divorce or the death of a parent. Plus, with the average lifespan growing longer, you could experience quarterly upheavals. Fortunately, these transitions offer positive opportunities as well as dilemmas....

  4. How to be Fab over Fifty (and Under)

    Comment
    By Will Hussey, Gavin Oattes and Dr Andy Cope There was a time when you oozed. You oozed with vitality, vim and vigour.  In short, you oozed with life.  You were alive – not just living and breathing but, well – lively.  Trust us: You (Version 1a) were a bundle of spritely enthusiasm packaged in recyclable, re-chargeable packaging. But times have changed, I hear you say.  The world is different, not like the good old days.  Of course, even the good old days aren’t like how the good old days used to be.  But maybe it was simpler back then.  You went to work (or not) and returned home to more work, housework or a Kit-Kat.  But at least you escaped from the working day.  These days, there’s no...

  10. Arise and Shine – how a great morning routine can make you happy

    Comment
    Article by Emma-Sue Prince   What’s your typical morning routine like? How you start your day impacts every single part of your day.  Once I realised that and changed how I began the day the effect was transformational. How you start the day pretty much dictates how the rest of your day will go and in terms of happiness, it is everything! So many people don’t necessarily think about that time period right at the beginning of the day when they wake up. They tend to do more or less the same thing – often putting the alarm back on snooze, or most of the time reaching for their phone and straight away checking for messages, news, email and social media. Then rolling out...
