  2. 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...
  3. 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...
  4. 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...
  5. 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...
  6. 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...
  7. Without Passion you have nothing!

    5
    Introducing Sharon Eden – the Passion Whisperer As Donald Trump once said, “Without Passion you have no energy.  Without energy you have nothing.” So, think about your own life and remember a time when you were feeling down and lifeless.  I bet you felt you couldn’t be bothered and certainly were not up for adventures and who-knows-what-you-might-discover.  Just see yourself in that time in your life…. and if you had a colour to symbolise that time, what colour comes to mind? Now, with a swift wriggle of your body, or a clap of your hands, get rid of those glooopy feelings because it’s time to change the scene. Remember a time in your life when you were enthusiastic Now remember a time in your life when you felt enthusiastic, on...

  10. 10 Top Tips to Keep Positive

    3
    Article by Dr Lynda Shaw Learn to accept the past, view any negative experiences as history, there is nothing you can do to change them now. Learn from your mistakes so as to avoid repeating them. Do not feel pressurized into situations you are uncomfortable with, or where you may be compromised – be assertive, stand up for yourself and trust yourself to be doing it for the right reasons. Keep things simple, we have a tendency to overcomplicate issues, worrying unnecessarily and meandering off topic, try to keep everything in perspective. Build on your strengths, identify situations you know you can excel in and apply yourself to these. Strive to be ambitious, everybody needs goals in life so set yourself some, the bigger the better,...
