  1. How to be Fab over Fifty (and Under)

    Comment
    By Will Hussey, Gavin Oattes and Dr Andy Cope There was a time when you oozed. You oozed with vitality, vim and vigour.  In short, you oozed with life.  You were alive – not just living and breathing but, well – lively.  Trust us: You (Version 1a) were a bundle of spritely enthusiasm packaged in recyclable, re-chargeable packaging. But times have changed, I hear you say.  The world is different, not like the good old days.  Of course, even the good old days aren’t like how the good old days used to be.  But maybe it was simpler back then.  You went to work (or not) and returned home to more work, housework or a Kit-Kat.  But at least you escaped from the working day.  These days, there’s no...
  2. How we create our own obstacles and how to leap over them…

    Comment
    Article by Georgia Varjas “It is your right to question everything.” We are all born with a talent and/or creative genius. It may be a gift you have tingling in your soul to sing, paint or write. Perhaps, you’re desire is to communicate and lead, or it could be to mend, fix or repair, even care, love and give. I believe we all have natural abilities. And, I am also aware of how we down-grade ourselves and often conceal our natural gifts and talents. From an early age, codes, regulations and laws hold us back and keep us trapped in low-esteem jobs and painful relationships, while filling our heads with complexes and inhibitions. We end up hiding our natural talents, playing small...
  3. 3 Reasons Why It’s Important to Maintain a (Real) Social Network in Life

    Comment
      There are all sorts of things which are said to contribute to a healthy sense of well-being, balance, and satisfaction in life over 50. Fulfilling work is certainly one of these things. Optimal overall health, and good nutrition play important roles too. But, one of the things that is most consistently regarded as essential is maintaining a healthy social network. Some of us are naturally less social and more introverted than others. And various situations in life – including even just getting older, or moving away for work – can mean that we are less socially engaged than we would ideally like to be. All the same, here are some reasons why it’s important to maintain a real social network in life.   1. Some degree of social interaction...
  4. 5 Ways to Step Up to Integrity

    Comment
    Article by Carole Ann Rice Just as no one admits to being a bad driver or a lukewarm lover, we find it hard to put our hand up to being out of integrity. Yet this is no brain twister – you are either in integrity or you are not. It’s really that simple. So how can you tell? When you are out of integrity, life’s “stuff” seems to conspire against you – people, bills, bad debts, relationships, and your health. You find yourself reacting in a bad way to others, life starts to feel something you endure rather than enjoy and there’s a sense that something is missing. There are many ways we can fool ourselves to avoid being authentic. Blaming others, things or circumstances or feeling...
  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. 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...
  8. 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. Solution – Why: find out why you’re lonely; do you not have many colleagues at work, you’re not close to your family? Or...
  9. The Impact of Social Media and Self-Esteem

    Comment
    When you think about social media and self-esteem, you may be thinking about adolescents and young adults. However, women over 45 are just as affected (if not more affected) by how others perceive them. According to one study on social media effects, just one hour per day on Facebook can lower your self-esteem score by almost six percent. Why? Because we are constantly comparing ourselves to other people. When we see that one of our old “friends” has the perfect husband, a beautiful house, and a wonderful job, while we are on our third marriage, suffering with our millionth horrible job, and living in a cramped apartment, it can be pretty hard on our self-esteem. But we do not realize that many people only post...
  10. 8 Ways of Finding Your Inner Superpowers

    Comment
    Article by Dr Janina Scarlet What would you do if you suddenly developed superpowers? Most people say that they would help others – save people from accidents, rescue others from disasters, or heal those who are ill. In short, most people say that that if they developed superpowers they would want to use them to help people. There are actually numerous ways in which you can boost your own superhero strengths and improve your quality of life. Gratitude. Connection with your happy memories is not only a magical Patronus charm from ‘Harry Potter.’ Experiencing and expressing gratitude can in fact boost our physical and mental health.
