  1. 5 Ways to break through life’s blocks and barriers

    Comment
    By Anne Jones, author of ‘How to Heal’  When you experience shock, trauma or sudden illness your energy field is impacted. The impact creates an imprint that holds toxic energy – negative emotions and stored memories.  This can be a one-off experience or a sustained period of trauma. An extreme condition of this is PTSD, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.   The scars and imprints from past traumas can negatively affect your mind, body and spirit. They can cause physical problems, suppressed emotions, and negative mindsets. They are the cause of the blocks and limitations that you may be experiencing. This sense of being blocked manifests in a number of ways and in various aspects of your life. Here are a few: Unable to find a suitable partner Difficulty in getting a job or...
  2. This is Midlife (not The End of Life)

    Comment
    Article by Carolyn Hobdey, the Midlife Mistress/Author De-Twat your Life Do you have that sinking feeling that there is more life behind you than in front of you? Welcome to Midlife. It’s a tricky moment, that’s for sure. A blend of crossroads and precipice with a touch of slippery slide – and not the kind you used to enjoy as a child. Our perceptions of midlife are long ingrained and hopelessly outdated. We still have this idea that it is the beginning of the end, and that the end will approach rapidly. It’s time to adjust our varifocals and start to see midlife differently. With increasing life expectancy, improved healthcare and modern...
  3. Loneliness by Carolyn Hobdey Author of De-Twat Your Life

    Comment
    Loneliness I have a very full and busy life. I box, weight-train, dance, sing in a choir, belong to a car club… and that’s before I begin to talk about my portfolio working life. I have so much going on my best friend says it makes her tired just listening to me. In fact, she says I’ll end up being the fastest woman in the graveyard! The rest of my friends ‘complain’ that they have to get a diary appointment to see me. I’m immensely fortunate that I am surrounded by such amazing, kind people. That’s why it surprises people when I tell them I am lonely. Profoundly so. I am not alone – far from it – and I enjoy my own company – I am an introvert who masquerades...
  4. HOW TO: Kick-Start Your Day With an Easy Morning Routine

    Comment
    It’s not always that easy to get out of bed in the morning. Late nights and a busy schedule can really take a toll on your physical and mental health. Research has shown that it only takes around 21 days to create a habit, so once you have managed to stick to your new habits, they are more than likely to stay with you. Think about it this way, if you are habitually checking your social media in the morning and downing that cup of coffee, you can find time to incorporate other habits that might be more preferential. Creating a doable morning routine that you can stick to will ensure that you are fully prepped for your busy day ahead. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy,...
  5. Self-Care: Not just one more thing to add to your agenda

    Comment
    Article by Elizabeth Bishop When it comes to taking care of ourselves, “balance” feels like a magic word—or maybe a magic goal. Too often, our longing for this quality in our lives puts us on a kind of quest. And too often, balance feels elusive, hanging at the end of some stick like a dangling delight, always stacked behind more pressing to-dos, and exhaustingly just out of our reach. It doesn’t have to be this way. There’s another way to think about balance. Instead of a goal to be achieved at the end of a journey, what if we accepted it as a part of every moment, available to us whenever we need it? Balance is a true in-the-moment experience. We can only genuinely know...
  6. Re-connect and plug back into life – in just a moment

    Comment
    Article by Sid Madge. Meee Being connected is a huge part of being human. We like to be seen, be heard, be loved. And yet for so many of us COVID has limited how we connect. We’ve socially distanced to get the pandemic under control but many of us are feeling the impact on our health and happiness. But we have much more power than we think. First, we have to appreciate our deep human need for connection.   I’m a great believer in instant change, little ‘micro-moments’ of learning or adaptation that allow us to actively take charge of our situation and emotions in the moment, reset and bring more of our best to help ourselves and others. Each micro-moment intervention is designed to be actionable in a minute and I’ve...
  7. 5 Simple Lifestyle Changes That Can Combat Aging

  8. How to Prevent Self-Sabotage and Reach a New Level of Success over 50

    Comment
    “Each of us has an inner thermostat setting that determines how much love, success, and creativity we allow ourselves to enjoy. When we exceed our inner thermostat setting, we will often do something to sabotage ourselves, causing us to drop back into the old, familiar zone where we feel secure.”  Gay Hendricks   Age is no barrier to success, but at times your biggest obstacle to success is yourself. The rest of the world is too busy to actively get in your way. That’s great news! If your lack of success is your fault, you can take steps to address the situation.   There are a variety of ways you sabotage yourself. You procrastinate, think negatively, and have other harmful habits. As Walt Kelly once said,...
  9. Where in the UK has the highest life expectancy?

    Comment
    Life expectancy has increased gradually over the past century and recent data has shown that women currently live an average of 87.2 years compared to 84.3 years for men. Reassured are passionate about life insurance, such as family and over 60 life insurance and wanted to find out more about what potential factors can impact life expectancy. They have analysed ONS data to determine whether gender, location, martial status and even children can impact the average life expectancy in the UK. Does marriage increase or decrease life expectancy? Although women currently have a greater average life expectancy than men, marriage actually bridges the gap with the life expectancy increasing for a married man, whereas it is the opposite for women. ...
  10. Why you may become more introverted in your later years and how to recharge successfully

    Comment
    Article by Joanna Rawbone As an introverted female business owner in my ‘later years’, this topic had me intrigued from the outset. How true is it? Had I ever stopped to ponder this? Well, I have now! I know that many women report feeling more invisible as they get older, and I wonder if that indicates a vicious circle?  I feel less visible, so I’ll retreat more to save myself from the pain of invisibility.  Certainly Susan Cain, author of the bestselling introvert’s ‘bible’ Quiet, confirms that “We act more introverted as we get older.” Act and be are 2 different things though Notice that Cain uses the word ‘act’.  It is important to differentiate between behaving in a more introverted way and being more introverted.  The difference may...
