  1. 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...
  2. Harnessing your Superpowers over 50 with Claire Walton

    Comment
    Article by Claire Walton I’m 52 and a high-performance coach working with Executive Directors, Senior leaders, and entrepreneurs. I have held all these roles. My main role in life now is to share what I have learned and to help others stop getting in the way of their Highest Potential Self (HPS). I recently published a global bestselling book, ‘Super Neuro You’ to make accessible to anyone some of what I do to help clients. I used to stress about getting old. At age 21 I remember telling some middle-aged women I would rather die than reach age 50. Not only was this insensitive but also very ignorant and sad. That said, I celebrated my 50th Birthday on a 2-week holiday in America with my daughter and my best...
  3. Wendy asks: Is becoming invisible over 50 similar to becoming a Stepford Wife?

    Comment
    Article by Wendy Reichental I remember watching The Stepford Wives, the 1975 version, now considered a cult classic, and was absolutely obsessed with it. It starred Katharine Ross as the doe-eyed, intuitive and devoted Mrs. Joanna Eberhart. The movie’s plotline follows Joanna as a budding photographer, wife and mother who at her husband’s insistence agrees to uproot their family from the grime and grind of big city life to a Norman Rockwell-style Utopian suburb of Stepford, Connecticut. First impressions are paramount. It’s not long before Joanna suspects that something is amiss among these beguiling, housecleaning obsessed robot-like women of Stepford. Following the rules of society The phrase “Stepford wife” has now become part of our vernacular. It epitomizes somebody with a perfect facade who obediently follows the accepted rules of society. Since being recently...
  4. Energy is ageless! Manifesting success, love and more after 50!

    Comment
    Article by Esther McCann a.k.a. missmanifesther If there’s one thing lockdown has done, it’s opened people up to nurturing their mindset because they’re recognising that their emotional wellbeing is just as important as their physical health. In addition to wellness practices like mindfulness and meditation, manifestation has emerged as a leading mindset and spiritual vehicle for living a positive life and creating the reality you want. Even in a pandemic! For those who are unfamiliar with the Law of Attraction (LOA), it’s the basic principle that like attracts like, that what we believe about ourselves we become, and what we keep focusing on (good or bad) “manifests” in our reality. For example, when you seem to be spiralling and it’s one thing after another vs when...
  5. Top Things Every Girl Should Know in 2021

    Comment
    A lot has changed in the past year, since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. We all had to adjust our way of life to new restrictions and social distancing. And let’s be honest – it hasn’t been the easiest. However, one thing we should be grateful for is that the time spent inside allowed us to learn things that are more or less essential in life. Those things differ depending on whether you are male or female. In this article, we’ll focus on women. So what are the top things every strong, empowered woman should know to make her life easier and more self-reliant in times of pandemic? How To Cut Your Own Hair It may seem odd, but with lockdowns...
  6. 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...
  7. 10 top tips to stay confident in your job search over 50 following redundancy

    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...

It’s safe to say that (almost) everybody can benefit from a day at the beach.

  9. Live life to the full over 50: Leave the Waiting Room of Your Life

    Comment
    Article by Christine Foley  You know, I have this suspicion that most people actually waste their best years waiting for something to happen to them that will make them happy and that they accept that that is just the way it is. I think that the majority of people believe that the best they deserve is to feel reasonably OK with things the way they are. It so often seems like everyone is waiting: Waiting to be ready Waiting for the right time Waiting to feel confident Waiting for the children to leave home Waiting until the New Year Waiting until things are more certain Waiting until we’ve finished whatever project we’re on with right now so that we can fully concentrate on doing what we really want to do: waiting for...
  10. How to Take Care of Yourself During Lockdown

    Comment
    The lockdown has definitely made things harder for many people, especially those over 50. From the clubs and events being canceled to most over the age of 50 being at the greatest risk of serious health issues if contracting COVID-19, many have not left the house. But, taking care of yourself during this time is imperative. That’s because a healthy body will keep you around longer, and there is a lot that you can do. We’ll go over a few ways to take care of yourself both physically and mentally during this time, so you’re happy and healthy.
