  1. Why are divorce rates for the over 50s increasing?

    Comment
    Article by Fab after Fifty background It would appear that midlifers are no longer happy to stay in lacklustre marriages. A new study of 1,153 divorcees aged 45 and over reveals an upbeat attitude among those who went their separate ways, often delaying their parting until after their adult children had flown the nest.   43% said increasingly different interests caused irreparable rifts in their marriage 76% of ‘over-50’ divorcees report new-found feelings of relief, excitement and confidence 64% feel they have moved on successfully   Brits who annul their marriage in later life report feeling ‘relieved’, ‘excited’ and ‘more confident’ following their split, new research has shown. The results are revealed following a previous ONS report which found divorce rates in the UK are dropping in every age group but the over 50s. If...

    Comment
    Article by Fab after Fifty Navigating the world of online dating can be daunting. Apparently nearly half of new relationships for the over 50s start online..but where do you begin? Creating your online dating profile. It might be tempting to use that fabulously flattering photo taken of you on holiday 10 years ago, but if you no longer look like that you are only setting up yourself and any prospective date for disappointment. To date successfully online you really do need to create a profile that is as an accurate reflection of the real you as possible! If you meet somebody in person that you have connected with online, then you do not want your first impression to be one of disappointment. So with that in mind, here are our...
  3. Tips on what to do if you are in a toxic relationship or friendship

    Comment
    Article by Dr Lynda Shaw You Can’t Change Who They Are It’s virtually impossible to change a person’s perception and behaviour, but you can change the way you deal with them.  Those who possess bullying traits thrive on confrontation, but if you take a calmer and a more confident approach, they’re less likely to challenge you. Negative Energy Toxic personalities are very good at passing their negative energy onto others around them and using others as metaphorical punching bag.  Show kindness and empathy where it’s due, but be aware that negative energy can very quickly be transferred onto you if you’re not cautious; and remember insults are simply unacceptable. Set Your Boundaries It’s very easy to give into their demands for a calmer and more peaceful life, but this is not healthy nor is it conducive...

  5. How to Move Past “Stuck”: Tips for moving on with your life

    Comment
    Article by Liz Copeland We’ve probably all experienced being “stuck”: stuck in a job we can’t stand, stuck in a relationship we just can’t seem to get ourselves out of, stuck in a way of thinking that isn’t helping us move forward. Sometimes, we are stuck because external circumstances just aren’t going our way, but more often, says life coach Liz Copeland of www.lizcopeland.co.uk, “we get stuck when we have big or difficult decisions to make, or we need to move on, but just choose not to. Sometimes we don’t even know we are stuck, but there are signs…” Signs of Being Stuck Ruminating on the same thing over and over again Focused on the past or going over one situation such as a break up Trying to...
  6. Grief: An Unusually Positive Perspective

    Comment
    Article by Carmella B’Hahn       Loss and grief have honed me into who I am today: strong in spirit and deeply content as well as vulnerable at times. I am now a grief counsellor and an author and I write about the power of connecting with what lies beneath the surface, beyond our persona, our stories and our ego.   In February 1992 my five-year-old my son, Benjaya, who was one of the first babies to be born in water in England in 1986, slipped down a riverbank and drowned, shattering my reality in an instant. I had been immersed in the personal transformation movement for 15 years at that point, and yet this meeting with loss became my most profound teacher. Can we see death as an initiation? I was, of...

  8. The Heart of Relating: Does your ego get in the way of relationships?

    Comment
    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?...
  9. What do middle-aged men see when they look in the bathroom mirror?

    Comment
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon ‘What do you think men see when they come out of the shower and look in the mirror?’ is the question posed by one friend over  a girls lunch. ‘My husband  comes out of the bathroom strutting around like a peacock, whereas I (after cleaning the shower) look in the mirror see where everything has drooped or wrinkled and come out of the bathroom feeling deflated’. ‘Does the mirror treat men more kindly? Or do they  not see that extra  tyre around the middle or that face that has not aged well, seeing instead a youthful image of themselves  and possessing a confidence that makes them feel they can still conquer the world .’ Do they really not see the...
  10. How A French Beach Can Change Your Life

    Comment
    Article by Diana Raab, Ph.D. In the summer of 1977, we arrived in the southern French beach town for our honeymoon. I unpacked my suitcase and realized that in the post-wedding frenzy, I forgot to pack the tops of my two-piece bikinis. There’s no way in the world I would spend my honeymoon not swimming in the spectacular Mediterranean.  Right beside our small boutique hotel was a beachwear store. With my broken French accent I asked for bathing suit tops. The woman looked at my quizzically as if thinking, “weird and greedy American, wants the top too!” It was my first experience in France. Was it possible all women went topless on the beach here? A stroll on the neighboring...
