    Comment
    Article by Elisabeth Clare Elisabeth Clare, Founder & Director of MBST UK, shares insight on how to perfect your walking technique to get the maximum health benefits this National Walking Month (May) and beyond There are lots of different forms of exercise that help to strengthen muscles, support bone health and improve cardiovascular fitness. But there’s one form of exercise that offers a multitude of benefits without any price tag at all; walking. For many, a simple stroll is one of life’s pleasures, but walking is also a brilliant form of cardiovascular fitness that is easier on the joints than high-intensity exercises such as running or HIIT workouts. It boosts energy, strengthens the heart muscles, lightens your mood, and it can also help to ensure that you are maintaining a healthy...
  2. Top Tips For A Better Night’s Sleep

    Comment
      The power of a good night’s sleep cannot be understated. It boosts our brains, our immune systems and gives our bodies a chance to repair and restore. But plenty of us aren’t getting the right sleep we need – and a lot of it has to do with the environment we sleep in. Here are a few top tips to help you get a better night’s sleep! Stick to a schedule For adults, between 7-9 hours of sleep is optimum for getting the most benefit from your rest. If you’re consistent with your sleep schedule, your body will learn when it needs to rest and when it’s most energised. In most people, this will help them to sleep better and more deeply. Your body sleeps as part of...
  3. ABC’s of CBD: A Beginners Guide to Cannabidiol

    Comment
    Unless you’ve been living under a rock in recent years, you’ve probably heard of CBD. The herbal compound has been rising through the ranks of the wellness scene over the last decade. Now, with CBD products being sold everywhere, from boutique coffee shops to beauty retailers, it’s safe to say that the ingredient has entered the mainstream.  However, while its use is on the uptick, it’s still less known than many of its herbal competitors. Also, with so many claims being made about its benefits, it can be hard for curious consumers to decipher facts from fiction. To help clear up any confusion, this article will tell you everything you need to know about CBD. But before we dig into the details, here’s a basic...

  5. Improving Your Psychological and Physical Wellbeing with CBD Aromatherapy

    Comment
    Two forms of holistic healing that have recently gained more recognition in the field of wellbeing are CBD and aromatherapy. The combination of these together could be thought of as both an art and a science, with the aim to enhance our physical and emotional health of the body, mind and spirit.  This article will explore aromatherapy in a little more depth, looking at how we can also use CBD in conjunction with aromatherapy to promote health and wellbeing. What is Aromatherapy? Aromatherapy (or sometimes called essential oil therapy) is the use of aromatic materials, including plant extracts, essential oils, and other aroma compounds, for healing and cosmetic purposes. Many people use it to potentially improve their psychological and physical wellbeing, either...
  6. Why we find it harder to sleep as we get older?

    Comment
    By Dr Nerina Ramlakhan, neurophysiologist and sleep expert  Achieving deep, restorative sleep is an excellent way to bolster resilience as we age. During this sensitive life stage where many women may also be perimenopausal or menopausal, sleep enables the hormonal shifts to occur more smoothly and emotions to be more balanced and even. When sleep is deep and optimal, the parasympathetic nervous system (PNS) – associated with rest, repair, recovery – gets a reboot and the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) – activated by stress – is calmed. An overly active SNS can lead to trouble sleeping with temperature fluctuations and anxiety during the night, while boosting the PNS will help to minimise these issues. This can be done by making good lifestyle choices and adopting some...
  7. 5 top tips to reduce feelings of stress from Dr Marion Gluck

    Comment
    Article by Dr Marion Gluck Are you feeling more stressed now that lockdown is lifting? Stress can dramatically affect hormones and help create an imbalance. In particular, DHEA, an endogenous steroid hormone which gives energy and focus, can fall to low levels when stressed, which will then help trigger too much cortisol. Cortisol plays havoc with hormone levels and can increase appetite, decreases muscle mass, libido and bone density, along with contributing to depression and memory loss. In a balanced nervous system cortisol is routinely released in the morning, which is good, as it gets us out of bed. Levels should drop by the evening as melatonin, the sleep hormone, is released by the pineal gland. Excessive stress can produce an excess of cortisol, which can take...
  8. Do you have Dry Eyes? Review of Artelac Eye Drops

    Comment
    I am used to working from home, having based myself from home for over 25 years, both in my headhunting career and in running Fab after Fifty. However, the past 12 months of working from home has been so different. I have never spent so much time looking at a screen! In the past being based from home still involved me going to off site meetings and events.  Telephone calls gave me a break from screen time, but during the pandemic Zoom calls became the norm – so natural breaks from my screen no longer exist. By the end of the day I definitely have eye fatigue and my eyes feel quite dry and itchy – prompting me to rub them...
  9. Your gut and how it feels – Examining gut health

    Comment
    Article by Amber Tsai Our body is home to about 300 to 500 different types of bacteria. They can be found in our gastrointestinal tract or GI tract. While some of these bacteria are good and some bad, all of them are crucial to our gut health. The balance between the good and bad bacteria is the indication of our gut health. Though we want to keep the bad bacteria to a minimum, it does not necessarily mean that we should eradicate and flush out the bad ones from our systems. Why is gut health so crucial, you ask? Your gut is the MVP when it comes to overall health. The responsibility of the gut, which is more than just your intestines, is to breakdown the nutrients from the food we consume...

    Comment
    Boost Energy Over 50 with CBD As we get older, we often start to experience health issues or at least a drop in energy levels.
