  1. Do women feel invisible to the opposite sex at 51.

    21
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon As a new survey claims that women feel invisible to the opposite sex at 51.  If  you had been one of the 2000 women asked to participate, would you have responded in the same way? I have to say that this particular survey seems to convey a pretty grim outlook on life over 50 – it would be interesting to see precisely what questions were asked. These are just some of the findings: Many went as far as to admit they felt ‘ignored’. The women who said their confidence plummeted after hitting 50 blamed the fact their hair was greying or they were having to wear glasses, while others found it harder to find fashionable clothes. The lifestyle study, commissioned by herbal remedies company, A.Vogel, also found more than two thirds of...

  4. How going grey helped Kama find her inner confidence. How will you find yours?

    8
    Article by Kama Frankling Where was my confidence hiding for all of those years? Last year I finally found my true confidence. It had been hiding for years and even though I had searched and searched, it was never to be found. Then I found it quite unexpectedly, and I will admit it was not at all where I expected to find it. It had been hiding all that time waiting for me, but I needed to do one last thing before it would show itself. I needed to stop colouring my hair. You see I found my confidence in my grey hair. Don’t worry I am not saying you have to stop colouring your hair to find confidence. What I...

  6. The Fab 50s – Managing the new Chapter of your Life

    7
    Article by Carole Spiers Being over 50 can be the beginning of a new chapter in your life; a time of growth and a period of regeneration. Middle age may be upon you but you have the experience and possibly the lines on your face that go with it!  Of course, you might wish that they weren’t there but that is another story!  However, they are there and each one tells the tale of your life’s experience. The post 50’s chapter brings not only experience but also brings you greater influence.  This is a time when reality starts biting and the dreams that you had when you were younger may now be drifting away into the mists of early romantic visions.  Having now faced the hard realities of life and the work required...
  7. Three reasons to live a passionate life

    2
    Article by Sharon Eden- the Passion Whisperer Reason 1 – You’re a long time dead! When I was a child my grandmother was an old woman at 44 let alone 50.  And you can still find women of 50 with what I call ‘the perm and floral dress syndrome’ convinced it’s now all downhill to the graveyard. When I get clients with this syndrome, I tell them that the 90s are the new 70s, the 80s the new 60s, the 60s the new 40s and the 50s the new 30s.  So why kill yourself off when you’re still a spring chicken? Connect with your Passion.  Feel its vibrancy pulsing through your veins and live life out loud! Reason 2 – Passion is...
  8. Best Knickers Always: 50 Lessons for Midlife. My Top 7 Lessons

    2
    Article by Rebecca Perkins Rebecca Perkins, coach and author of Best Knickers Always: 50 Lessons for Midlife shares her top 7 lessons. 1, Take Time For Silence “Let us be silent, that we may hear the whispers of the gods,” Ralph Waldo Emerson taught us. We live in a noisy world. There was a lot of noise in my head. I longed for silence in a mad world. I have taken up meditation again, and this time I am guided in my daily practice. I take 20 minutes simply to sit and be aware of my breathing, allowing thoughts to come and go. I focus on my intention for my meditation. I have learned to take time for solitude and self-reflection. It is a healing remedy for the mind, body and soul. What...
  9. Best Knickers Always: 50 Lessons for Midlife

    1
    Article by Rebecca Perkins. Coach Rebecca Perkins shares her personal journey that led her to write her book, Best KnickersAlways: 50 Lessons for Midlife Life isn’t always (and let’s be honest never will be) sunshine and roses, and living in a perpetual state of nirvana would probably become stifling and boring. By the time we’ve reached midlife we’ve all faced our challenges—some of us more than others and some of us more than our fair share. Courage and resilience, however, come from our ability to get back up again after we’ve tripped and fallen over life’s obstacle course. Getting back up again is a choice. We always have that choice. So, we get to midlife and we face transition. Those of us who are parents come to realise that our children do not...
  10. Passion or passion?

    9
    Article by Sharon Eden, the Passion Whisperer I bet that when you think of passion, certain associations come into your mind.  Like sex, being angry, ‘mad’, and/or going off the rails.  That’s because Passion and passion have both traditionally got bad press.  Ok… end of confusion! Passion with a big P refers to your essential life energy geyser, the creative life force in you from which everything flows… including your emotions.  Most importantly, it motivates you to be creative in your life.  Anything from baking cakes to rearing children, from writing an essay to works of art, from finding more efficient ways of doing your work to develop yourself as a fab-after-fifty-woman… and an infinite number of things in between! Passion with a small p refers to those things you love to...
