  1. How to Overcome Anxiety and Stress

    Comment
    Article by Garth Delikan  the  Lifestyle Guy Stress is a funny old thing and can arise from any kind of thought or situation that makes you feel frustrated, angry or anxious. However, stress really is an inevitable part of life and in small quantities it can be incredibly motivating, empowering and productive. But as we all know too much stress can have the opposite effect completely and can undermine your health, make you feel ill and leave you susceptible to infection, heart disease or even depression, all those things we really don’t want in our lives. Fight or flight syndrome You don’t need me to tell you but isn’t it horrible how habitual and persistent feelings of stress and anxiety can interfere in the way you live your life. When...
  2. Tips to help Prevent Osteoporosis

    Comment
    Article by The Lifestyle Guy The Causes of Osteoporosis The great news about osteoporosis is that it is reversible with a little effort and dedication and some lifestyle changes on your part. The main cause is generally an imbalance of magnesium and calcium however it is possible that the long time use of steroids will also contribute to wipe out bone density. Extreme hormonal imbalance can wreck havoc too. When you have severe hormonal changes going on in your life another factor in the loss of bone density is low levels of oestrogen. What you also have to take into consideration is this. Western countries have a high intake of dairy products so the average calcium intake is about 1000 mg. There is 6 to 8 times more calcium than magnesium...
  3. Why is it important to exercise our stomach muscles? Be fit over 50

    Comment
    Article by Garth Delikan Why are our abdominal muscles so important, and why should we include stomach exercises into our routines in our 50s and 60s? We asked the Lifestyle Guy, Garth Delikan  for his thoughts: Your ab muscles or abdominals are in fact some of the most important and multifunctional muscles in your entire body. To be able to tone and shape them properly along with a good general fitness programme over 50 together with a healthy eating plan,  it helps to know what the abdominals do. Some important functions of the abdominal muscles: The abdominals  are in fact postural muscles which means that you couldn’t even sit or stand up or push your shopping trolley...
  4. Think ‘Swap’ instead of ‘Diet’ to lose weight over 50!

    5
    Article by The Lifestyle Guy Deciding to start a ‘diet’ can be psychologically off putting. But choosing to do a couple of simple  ‘swaps’ to tackle those few extra midlife  pounds can be far less daunting.  Garth, the Lifestyle Guy, shows how effortless it can be to make a few swaps to save calories, lose pounds and eat more healthily over 50. So start ‘swapping’ and stop dieting! 1. Full fat versus Low Fat Foods The sabotage effect.  Foods processed to be low fat are often high in simple carbohydrates because they contain added sugars to improve the taste. ‘Carbohydrate-rich foods can send your blood sugar sky high. This triggers an insulin release that makes your blood sugar drop, which makes you hungry – so you just end up eating again and consuming more calories throughout the day. Make it...
  5. More helpful security tips to provide peace of mind for those living alone

    Comment
    Article by The Lifestyle Guy In Garth’s first article he helped us look at how we could make the inside of our homes more secure, in this second part he looks at how changes we make outside can help. Many 50plus women find themselves living alone. When you find yourself living alone for the first time  whatever the reason, staying and feeling safe isn’t just about personal security… Crime isn’t just a fear of physical assault it’s also the pyschological fear and trauma if anyone should burgle your home or your property, and even if you’ve taken sensible precautions in the home what about the garden? Equipment kept in a garden shed is just as tempting (and is sometimes used to actually break into a house). Many homes are alarmed and secured but often garages and sheds are left unsecured...
  6. How to increase your energy in just 5 days

    Comment
    Article by The Lifestyle Guy  Do you seem to feel tired most of the time and when night time comes around you can’t wait to get in to bed. This doesn’t mean it’s the end of the road, if  follow these few simple tweaks to your daily eating habits you could double your energy in five days!  Eat at least two low GI meals a day Many of the carbohydrate based foods that we eat on a daily basis such as breads, pasta, rice, cereals, cakes and biscuits are highly processed, refined and lacking in their natural fibre therefore, once eaten, they are broken down very quickly causing our blood sugars to surge.  These surges are followed by a sudden drop leaving us feeling tired, lethargic and lacking in concentration.  Research shows that swapping...
  7. Top Tips for feeling Safe and Secure when Living Alone

    6
    Article by  The Lifestyle Guy Many women over 50 find themselves living alone for possibly the first time in their lives.  How best can we ensure that we are safe and secure in our own homes ?  We asked a personal safety expert for his top tips. Recent government statistics show that the majority of people who live by themselves especially if they are living alone for the first time in many years and are used to having someone else around have a real fear that they may become a victim of crime. It’s not surprising really is it when you think about it, that old saying about “safety in numbers” rings very true and it’s only a natural reaction to feel more “vulnerable” and slightly insecure until you at least get used to the situation. Although crimes of these sort...
