  1. Sex in Advertising Sells: So why NOT to the Over 50s?

    By Geoffrey Rowan   The Trouble with Good Old Sex Marketers have a sex problem. They slather it liberally onto any brand surface where it might stick – the ultimate consumption aphrodisiac. No one gets fired from a marketing job for saying, “sex sells.” But at the same time, they ignore or alienate the source of half of all household spending because sexy older people … well – that’s ridiculous. The failing of marketers is that we tend to prematurely sexualize young people, and prematurely desexualize older people. Teens and pre-teens, soaking in their volatile stew of hormonal dysphoria, are bombarded with images and messages they can’t or shouldn’t understand, with dangerous ramifications that they are massively unprepared to deal with. The marketers’ message: “Think sexy, be sexy, be sexier. No, even sexier.” Meanwhile, mature...
  2. The Heart of Relating: Does your ego get in the way of relationships?

    By Carmella B’Hahn   Every moment of every day, all of us are relating, either consciously or unconsciously, with ourselves, others and life. Our relationships can be a major source of sustenance – fulfilling our crucial need for connection, belonging, and giving/receiving love, however, quite often they are a source of stress.   Communication skills – the bedrock of successful relationships – are not on the mainstream education syllabus and children are generally left to learn to relate by absorbing the behaviour of those around them. Without conscious work on our part to change any unhelpful past influences, we will still be repeating them decades later, to be absorbed, in turn, by youngsters now in our orbit. How often have you caught a glimpse of your mother or father in the mirror of late?...
  3. Look stylish over 50. How many ways can you style one little black dress? Video series

      Article by Ceri Wheeldon Just to make a change from my usual dresses with sleeves series, I have taken one, sleeveless black dress (from Ceme London) and started a video series to see just how many ways it can be styled. We all like to look stylish over 50, but we don’t necessarily want to spend a fortune, which is why I decided to see just how versatile a simple black dress can be.   We all have that black dress in our wardrobe that probably doesn’t get worn as often as it should, so I have set myself the challenge of seeing how many different looks I can come up – for day, evening, casual, formal. I have accessorised with items from my own wardrobe- mixing...

  5. Better with Age: From Losing it to Using it

    Article by Phyllis Strupp One spring morning in 2008, my husband Peter and I were out for our morning walk. Out of the blue, this healthy 53-year-old man declared, “I think I’m losing it.” Resisting the temptation to respond, “You finally noticed,” I asked why he thought this way. He said that his mind was not as sharp as it used to be; he was taking longer to remember names and information. Furthermore, his paternal grandmother, who had lived to be 100, had struggled with Alzheimer’s for decades, so he was convinced that he had “the gene” and the process had already set in. 95% of Alzheimers cases are not linked to genes I told him that some 95% of Alzheimer’s cases are not linked to the genes you...
  6. The Health Benefits of Tai Chi for Positive Ageing

    Article by Ceri Wheeldon We all know about the importance of exercise – especially as we are living longer and want to age positively and enjoy those extra years coming our way. With 50 becoming the new 40 or even 30, 60 the new 50, we are all looking to embrace life and have the health and energy to live it to the full, but for many of us hitting the gym just doesn’t appeal. So what about more gentle alternatives? There are always new exercise crazes hitting the tabloid headlines – but more traditional forms of exercise such as Tai Chi have stood the test of time – and been applauded by institutions such as the Harvard Medical School  for delivering health benefits. The Benefits of Tai Chi Said...
  7. How to know your worth and attract good stuff!

    Article by Sharon Eden Women are renowned for undervaluing and underselling themselves. And 50+ women are no exception. However, a woman standing in her own power is an inspirational and highly influential force. So… some ideas on how to showcase yourself as the magnificent woman you really are. Never blow your own trumpet? I’m working with a business building specialist. Recently, she asked me how people knew a certain high profile person was an expert. She gently dismissed my answers revealing the only reason they’re seen as an expert is because they tell everyone they are! And she’s right… How can you expect other people to value you when you don’t talk about how great you are? I know it goes against what you were taught. But, hey, it’s...
  8. How exercise keeps you young and fights and defies ageing

    Article by Marisa Peer So exceptional is the ability of regular exercise to reverse ageing, it seems extremely unlikely that any further drug or physician-oriented technique will approach such a benefit  Exercise is so incredibly effective at slowing down ageing that it seems unlikely that anything will ever be invented that could beat its anti ageing power. However that does not mean you have to spend hours at the gym or running you can do just a few minutes of exercise a day that will dramatically slow down how you age.   After the age of 35 we stop decrease the amount of HGH – human growth hormone – a substance that keeps us young, repairs tissues and is responsible for bone strength, muscle growth and brain function. The loss of...
