  1. 5 ways to stay motivated enough to achieve your goals

    Comment
    Article by Dawn Ann Campbell Thinking big uses up copious amounts of our precious brainpower, as if concentrating in a boring meeting wasn’t already hard enough. It’s no surprise then, that when we’re working toward our goals, our motivation often ebbs and flows at times. Staying motivated can sometimes be more difficult than achieving the goal itself! The International Authority for Professional Coaching & Mentoring is the leading accreditation authority for professional coaches. With that in mind, their Sales & Marketing director, Dawn Ann Campbell, is sharing her five ways to stay motivated enough to achieve your goals: 5 Ways to Stay Motivated Connect with a mentor in a similar field – motivation is like Vitamin C; your body cannot make it, you need to find...
  2. Coping with Change in your 50s

    Comment
    Article by Beverley Harvey This weekend with only my faithful dog for company, I sat and sobbed my way through Finding Your Feet. It’s a wonderful film that has a stellar cast of a certain age; Imelda Staunton, Timothy Spall, Celia Imrie and Joanna Lumley all act their socks off. It’s warm, witty and very funny in parts – but laden with pathos, too, so I highly recommend keeping the tissues to hand. I don’t want to spoil the plot, so I’ll just say that the story centres on coping with change. In this case, it’s concerning the abrupt end of a 40-year old marriage due to infidelity. The shock and despair of such a breakup is surely right up there with bereavement, and...
  3. Life over 50: How to Remove Time as an Excuse

    Comment
    Article by Ian Price   “I haven’t had time.” “I’ve been too busy.” “There simply aren’t enough hours in the day.”   How often do we hear ourselves wheel out these excuses for having let something slip whether in work or in life? We tend to give ourselves and others a pass when “time” is offered as an excuse. For many of us, life – both at work and at home – is frenetically busy. The demands of an “always-on” culture mean that work bleeds into life and, with our ever-present devices, we are constantly connected with colleagues, friends and family. Research into workers in the UK concludes that we are “overwhelmed employees” suffering from stress with ever-increasing workloads and a diminishing work-life “balance”. 8 tips to help you rethink time,...
  4. Friendship over 50: 5 Reasons why Friendship is Vital to Life

    Comment
    Article by Carole Ann Rice  Friends aren’t just for summer like a dog isn’t just for Christmas. From better brainpower to the phenomena colloquially called, “friendfluence”, it’s safe to say friends can have dramatically positive effects on our lives. Top Life Coach, Carole Ann Rice knows how important it is to surround yourself with honesty and authenticity. So, she’s revealing the five reasons why friendship is vital to life: 1. You choose to be friends – you can choose your friends, but you can’t choose your family. The people in our lives who can be draining at times are often our family, but we can’t simply delete them from our lives. Whereas with friends are those we choose to be around, unlike the duty-bound family ties. Friends...
  5. Midlife Confidence: Meet Your Mid Life Pushy Bitch

    Comment
    Article by Paula Gardner Mid Life Confidence You think that one might have got this confidence thing sussed by the time we reach our fifties, but there are more things besieging our confidence than ever. The menopause.  Friends and loved ones falling seriously ill. Health issues of our own, perhaps. That persistent low-level nagging question of what’s your purpose? Dealing with our children’s problems around cyber bullying, or digital addiction. The stress of modern day online dating. Even if only one or two of the above apply to you, it’s actually a wonder that you’re not on the floor in a gibbering heap right now. My own major confidence crisis was of the existential sort: who am I and what the hell did I want to...

  7. Coincidence? Or was it really seen in the cards?

    Comment
    Article by Sophie Jenkins In 2015 my friend Cathy, who is gorgeous, intuitive and half French, started reading tarot cards and as practice, she offered to read mine. Me, I’ll try anything, usually, but I didn’t like the idea, mainly because I didn’t believe in it but also because I sort of did. What if she saw bad news in the pack, something that would worry me and keep me awake at night? My life was, after a period of turbulence, currently fine, and if there was trouble ahead, I didn’t really want to know about it in advance. Two months before this, in the summer of 2015, my mother had gone into a dementia care home and surprisingly, considering how hard we’d fought...
  8. How to be charismatic and not invisible over 50

    Comment
    Article by  Catherine Stothart A recent poll of my over-50 friends revealed that most of us had experienced feeling invisible.  Growing up female, we get used to having attention (not always wanted) from others – wolf whistles, comments, glances in the street.  As we get older, we notice that it is our daughters getting the attention, not us.  And although this is natural, it can undermine how we feel about ourselves at a time when we may already feel vulnerable. However, we can also all think of older women who have confidence and charisma – public figures like Judi Dench, Sandi Toksvig, Julie Walters, Sue Barker, Tessa Jowell, Judy Murray, Kirsty Wark, and many more, plus the people we know personally.  So being invisible...
  9. An introduction to Auras

    Comment
    Article by Alexandra Sutcliffe   Auras are the energy fields that exist around everything, both living and inanimate, created by the vibrations of all the molecules and atoms contained within the particular being or object. There are seven layers to each human aura, and they expand and contract depending on our moods, thoughts and feelings.  They consist of swirling colours that mingle with one another and are constantly moving.   Each represents a different layer of our consciousness, a bit like a mirror, reflecting our experiences as well as our emotional or physical condition.  They are our true essence, created from our vibrations, which in turn are created by everything we think, feel, say and do. Our auras protect us from any harmful energy generated by our surroundings...
  10. 5 Signs You’re Lonely and 5 tips to feel less so

    Comment
    Article by Carole Ann Rice You can have over 1,000 friends on Facebook and still feel lonely. Those feelings of disconnection and isolation is something we all experience at some point but aren’t always aware of. Top Life Coach Carole Ann Rice knows the difference between having no plans on a Friday night and loneliness. So, here are her top five signs you may be lonely, and her tips to combat it: 1. Emotional pain – being lonely is emotionally painful. You may feel as if you’re looking through the window of life at everyone else having fun, but you’re not there with them enjoying it like they are.
