    Comment
        Coming up with great resolutions for a new decade can be tough. When it comes to coming up with better habits for your life, weight loss is often up there as a number one priority after Christmas.    Most of us indulge maybe a little too much over the festive season, and getting back to a healthy weight and lifestyle is key for a happy and healthy life. While most of us will head straight for the vegetables and shake that weight drinks, some of us can find it a little more difficult to motivate ourselves and get started.    If towards the middle of January you are still struggling to inspire yourself to eat healthily,...
  2. The Importance of Independence In Age (And How To Keep It)

    Comment
    Age comes for us all, naturally. We will do what we can to keep a healthy body and mind, but we also have to be aware of how our lifestyle is likely to change as we get older. We are living longer, but what things can we do today to ensure those extra years we have  later are quality years. One of the most important factors of all is independence. How long can we fully control our lives, and how do we make sure we get the assistance we need as that control begins to fade over time? Let’s look at a few tips on maintaining your independence for as long as you can. These tips are also useful to bear in mind when...
  3. 8 Easy Ways To Get Fit Without Joining The Gym

    Comment
    Whether you were a gym bunny in your youth or avoided it at all costs, it’s safe to say that exercise is still an essential part of a healthy lifestyle even if it wasn’t previously a top priority. However, being older and wiser, we tend to look at everything a little differently. Exercise might still be an important aspect of your life, but the way you exercise now can offer better results compared to the strenuous routines you used to put yourself through.    If the gym was a place, you never entered in your younger years and still don’t want to, that’s fine too. You don’t have to be in the gym every day to feel the benefits of exercise. With busier...
  4. Fitness over 50: How to Make Daily Exercise a Habit

    Comment
      Everyone can benefit from daily exercise and its never too late to start. Any new habit may have challenging beginnings, but in time, nearly anything can become habitual. In this case, we’re talking about a habit that has incredible benefits, so let’s see what you can do to get exercising every day! Tips for making exercise a habit Schedule it. The number one reason people claim they don’t exercise regularly is a lack of time. You make time for a variety of other things every day: eating meals, taking a shower, driving to and from work, television, and more. So make an appointment with yourself to get the exercise your body needs to be as healthy as it can possibly be. Find a workout buddy. The number...
  5. A Review of Future You FocusZen supplements to help with Brain Fog

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon One of the many symptoms that women in their 50s say they suffer from is ‘Brain Fog’. The ability to concentrate for extended periods of time is affected in part due to hormonal changes which affect cognition, and in part due to fatigue through lack of sleep – a common symptom of the menopause for those suffering hot flushes at night. We are possibly the first generation of women to continue working through to retirement age, and so brain fog is perhaps more talked about now than previously.  Brain fog may not be overwhelming – but there is that feeling that you just aren’t running on all cylinders. If you are used to being constantly on the go,...

  7. Dr Marilyn Glenville’s essential shopping list for foods that will help you keep your weight under control

    Comment
    Shop & Cook Wisely with The UK’s Leading Nutritionist – Dr Marilyn Glenville 5 Ingredients To Always Have On Your Shopping List… Dr Marilyn Glenville believes shopping and cooking wisely to be an integral part of living well and converting from diet culture to a healthy way of life. Variety is key to enjoying your food and eating for health and weight control. In an ideal world, we would all shop at small retailers offering local, organic produce but that isn’t always practical.

  8. 10 Ways To Take Better Care Of Your Health

    Comment
      It used to be that we would typically only think about our health if something went wrong. Our approach to health was to cure rather than prevent illness. It was very much about reacting to negative symptoms and situations.  Taking care of your health became a serious business. If you were actively looking to improve your health, it was typically because there was something wrong with you. These days, we know so much more about health and how to actively improve your health, at any age, and at any time.  There is so much more information available at our fingertips via the internet, and even employers recognise that there are benefits to them in providing wellbeing programmes to create a healthy environment for employees to work...
  9. How to Lose Weight Over 50 Without Dieting

    Comment
    Article by Dr Marilyn Glenville   Many of us gain weight in midlife and look to lose those extra pounds in our 50s.  Dr Marilyn Glenville  talks about a more natural approach to weight loss. Get realistic about dieting – “When you diet it’s not always easy to know when to stop.  Dieting can easily become a way of life and it’s possible to feel ‘naked’ or ‘unprotected’ when you aren’t actively on a diet. Unfortunately, this mind-set can make you set unrealistic goals. Aiming to shed every last pound of what you consider excess fat makes the hurdle simply too high to jump, not just in terms of will power but in health terms, too. Remember those  ‘perfect’ models? Don’t even think about trying to emulate them. Very few...

    Comment
    Article by Keith Squires Keith Squires has been touring Australia to launch his new book, Cooking with Love. He has put together the top ten questions he has been asked about a plant based diet. Millions of people are eating more plant based foods or becoming vegan. It is the biggest food trend at the moment. The numbers of vegans have doubled in just a few years and are set to rise further still. It’s not just a trend it’s a food revolution. Restaurants, food chains and manufacturers are rushing to keep up. It’s particularly popular with the younger generation who are getting lots of information and recipes from social media. Also the over 50’s are looking for natural ways too to boost their health and vitality. I have been teaching vegetarian,...
