  2. New Year Challenge Day 10 to Stay Fabulous Over 50 in Lockdown: Learn to Say No

    Comment
    Challenge set by Ceri Wheeldon   “You can be a good person with a kind heart and still say no.” Lori Deschene It is so easy to get overwhelmed and spread ourselves too thin. How often do you agree to do something through obligation and later regret the decision? As women we are natural caretakers and it can be so easy to put ourselves at the back of the queue when it comes to  investing ourselves. We hate to disappoint and it can be so easy to step in to help others when asked in spite of the pressure it might place ourselves under.  If you are constantly behaving as a people pleaser it can be easy to let your boundaries get blurred...
  3. New Year Challenge Day 8 to Stay Fabulous Over 50 in Lockdown: Get Up Earlier

    Comment
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon What would you do with an extra hour each day? “Wake up an hour early to live an hour more.” – Unknown Welcome to Day 8 of our January Challenge. Being Fabulous over 50 is about how we live and feel not just how we look. How we plan our day can make a tremendous difference to our health and mindset! Are you a morning or evening person? Apparently 40% of us are morning larks and 30% night owls with the rest somewhere in between. I definitely fit into the night owl category – and have quite an elaborate morning alarm system to make sure I am up, ready and at my desk by about 8:30.  I am the type that puts the...
  4. New Year Challenge Day 7 to Stay Fabulous Over 50 in Lockdown: Have a PJ Day!

    Comment
    Challenge set by Julia Rees Welcome to day 7 of the “New Year New You” Challenge, and here is your challenge for tomorrow. We are posting each challenge the evening before so that you have time to prepare your outfit/ your challenge ahead of time. Taking time out to unwind and destress is essential to our wellbeing. Self care is very different to being selfish! As we cope with yet another lockdown, we are all under an unprecedented level of stress – some are having to juggle homeschooling with working from home, while others are having to deal with living in total isolation. Give yourself permission to switch off!  If pyjamas help you to get into relax mode so much the better...
  5. New Year Challenge Day 4 to Stay Fabulous Over 50: Try a New Recipe

    Comment
     Article by Ceri Wheeldon “Your diet is a bank account. Good food choices are good investments.” – Bethenny Frankel   So, we have reached Day 4 of the challenge to help keep us positive and fabulous over 50 as we start 2021 in lockdown. For the past 9 months since the first lockdown, I have cooked and eaten most of my meals alone. Even those who live with a partner or family have been limited to eating mostly  the same meals with the same people. The challenge for today is to cook something different. If you want to immerse yourself in recipe books that’s fine, but recently I have just been ‘googling’ recipes naming ingredients I have to hand just before heading into the kitchen....
  6. 4 Ways to Get Away From Beach Body Anxiety Over 50

    Comment
      Who doesn’t love going to the beach, sinking your toes into the sand, and listening to the gentle lapping of the surf on the shore? It’s safe to say that (almost) everybody can benefit from a day at the beach. However, no matter how much you love the fresh ocean air, there is always that nasty, niggling anxiety that worms its way into your head and won’t shut up for the trip. This can put you off from visiting your favorite place in the world. But it doesn’t need to. Here are four ways to get away from beach body anxiety and get your confidence back.  Pick the Right Outfits  If you’re going to the beach, you want to strip down to your bathing suit...
  7. Connecting: Margo Krasne in her 80s talks about the value of friendship over 50

    Comment
    By Margo T Krasne  I don’t know how many times over the last nine months—for that matter the last two years—I  have uttered the words, “What would I do without you?” I have said it to friends of long  standing. Said it to people with whom in the past I’d get together now and then but who have  come back into my life on a more regular basis. That those words turned out to be the title I  would eventually choose for my book of short stories was pure happenstance. My words weren’t  said lightly. I truly had—correction—have no idea as to how I would have gotten through these  last years if they hadn’t all been there.  You see in a few weeks, as of this writing,...
  8. Finding the words to understand a loved one’s terminal diagnosis

    Comment
    Article by Dr Esther Ramsay-Jones      On Christmas Day 2017, on my husband’s suggestion, we bought my mother a Dictaphone to record her memories and her life. Having taught English for many years, and being a relentless storyteller and chatterbox, Mum always had a lot to say. The following year, on Boxing Day 2018, she was rushed into hospital, having lost her speech, mumbling semblances of words that had once so easily flowed from her. ‘During that dislocating, jumbled time where words combined with other words to form sounds that no one around her could comprehend, one thing was clear and she repeated it with whatever half-words she could: this woman, with her determined, forceful spirit, did not want to survive without language. Though noises came, she had been rendered...
