  1. Feeling Stuck in a Rut? Try These Tips and Tricks to Break Free

    Comment
      Sometimes life is plodding along nicely, and then one day you wake up and realise that you are bored. It is so easy to get into the habit of following the same routine every day that you may not even realise that it is happening. As we grow older, we tend to settle into routines, and life tends to throw up fewer surprises than it did when we were younger. Before too long, your life can feel like groundhog day, and you may feel unsure how to claw your way out of the rut that you find yourself in. This can feel like a deeply frustrating situation, and you may choose to carry on as usual and bury these feelings of dissatisfaction in the...

    Comment
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon Lack of confidence is one of the issues that many of the jobseekers in the Fab after Fifty community say is an issue when looking for work. This is especially true in cases where individuals have been made redundant – and with the economic impact of the pandemic redundancy has become a shock reality for many who at the beginning of 2020 believed their jobs to be secure. So how do you maintain or regain your confidence when you are ensconced in what might seem like an uphill struggle to find a new role?   “For me, it’s...

  4. January challenge: Self Care Tips to stay Fabulous over 50

    Comment
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon   After such a prolonged period of lockdowns, isolation and uncertainty, we are all carrying an underlying  level stress that we don’t usually experience in our everyday lives. Add possible home schooling and concern for elderly parents into the mix and we have recipe for burnout. I know that I am finding the current lockdown far harder than the previous ones – the cold weather and shorter days make it far harder than the summer lockdown where at least I could spend time in the garden- and look forward to a weekend of reading in the garden while having a glass of rose wine! “Self-compassion is simply giving the same kindness to ourselves that we would give to others.” Christopher Germer ...

  6. 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...
  7. 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...

  9. 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....
