  1. Does being over 50 mean you are too old to start a new life?

    3
    Guest article by Edel O’Mahony The simple answer, ‘No!’ Let’s look at why so many people in our present societies seem to take half their lifetime to actually start to live a life they desire. We are all energy beings at our essence, living in an energetic Universe and having life experiences through these physical bodies. From birth into these bodies you are in total connection with your energy, everything is an experience of the moment; it is all about feeling through our senses. As you grow, generational and social conditioning sets in. You are told how you should think, feel or act, even down to what is a correct body size or what is the ‘in’ thing to wear. In taking in and believing these conditions, you alter your...
  2. Age with Attitude – Are you being True to Yourself?

    Comment
    Article by Lindsey Agness One of the comments I hear from many midlife women, is that they believe it’s better to be secure in their lives than happy – to stay ‘stuck’ rather than go for something different. This often means spending their lives with the ‘wrong’ person because they don’t want to be alone or they want someone to look after them financially, or both. Or maybe they have spent their lives in the wrong job because it pays the bills. What a waste! The only thing keeping us stuck in a rut is fear – fear that by making a change we may end up with something not as good as what we currently have. We are scared of moving into the unknown, of doing something...
  3. How to Overcome Stress in the Workplace – Part 1

    Comment
    Article by Carole Spiers The first in a series of articles by Carole Spiers – the latest ‘expert’ to join the Fabafterfifty team Q. How do you cope with the stress of insecurity if your company or organization is making redundancies? A. As we all well know, there is no such a thing as a ‘job for life’ and job insecurity does bring its own stress.  We human beings tend to like certainty but such is the nature of business today, that you need to be flexible and open-minded about your future career.  You have to keep your eyes and ears open about new opportunities that may be of advantage to you. If you are in the position of being made redundant, then you can use this time to enable you...
  4. The Top 20 Things that will Knock a Woman’s Confidence

    3
    Article by Fabafterfifty What knocks a woman’s confidence? Interestingly not quite what I was expecting, according to the results of a new study.  I was anticipating  relationship breakdown and job redundancies factoring in the top 20 list, but interestingly it would seem chipping our nail varnish or seeing unflattering photos on Facebook have more impact. Putting on weight is the number one thing that will knock a women’s confidence, the study has revealed. Feeling like they are carrying an extra few pounds closely followed by having a bad hair day or having bad skin have more of an effect on how a women feels when she walks out the front door than having someone being rude to them. Most women admit they are their own worst enemy when it comes to...
  5. Can hypnotherapy help weight loss?

    Comment
    Article by Steve Miller Hypnotherapy: The Key To Success Fab After Fifty meet with Steve Miller a certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, best selling author, and TV presenter of Sky’s Fat Families. What is hypnotherapy? In practical terms hypnotherapy is a process where the hypnotherapist helps a client to relax deeply so that their unconscious mind becomes receptive to change. The hypnotherapist will use a range of hypnotherapeutic processes to help the client achieve what it is they want to achieve. Is hypnotherapy safe? Absolutely and the process of hypnotherapy is very relaxing which also helps client to de-stress. Can you get “stuck” in hypnosis? Clients never get stuck. They feel very relaxed which means they often want the hypnotherapist to continue. We often see stage shows where people do silly things. What do you think of that? Yes...
  6. Age with Attitude, Attitude 3. Are You the Person You Want to Be?

    Comment
    Article by Lindsey Agness Attitude Three – I Know Who I Am This Attitude is all about finding out what you are passionate about, because this helps you discover your sense of self – and thereby increase your confidence and self-esteem. Remember the last time you felt real passion? That was the real you. After years of prioritising husbands, families and careers, many women begin to feel that they don’t know who they are any more. It’s almost as if we have given so much of ourselves to others over the years that our true self has become diluted and, for some, unrecognisable. This Attitude is all about re-gaining a sense of self, a feeling of knowing who you are. So, if you’re...
  7. You can do it! Age is no handicap to feeling fabulous

    Comment
    Article by Linda Evans There is a moment in your life when you feel you are becoming invisible. This happened to me when I moved to Cornwall 8 years ago. I’d always thought of myself as memorable (not being a ‘shrinking violet’ type for starters,) but people I met never seemed to remember me and as I’ve got a really good memory for faces this infuriated me and made me think I’d definitely become so middle-aged that I was no longer visible to anyone and that I’d become unattractive and plain boring. So 8 years on – I had my moment of fame and glamour when, last Sunday, I went out on stage at the Royal Albert Hall to present a charity hair show, the Alternative Hair Show, in front of 5,500...
  8. Age With Attitude- Attitude 2 – I Create What I Want- The Power of Thought

    2
    Article by Lindsey Agness In this article we are going to work on change from the inside out. The power of thought So let me start with the basics first. We alone determine whether our goals will be successful or not. The first thing I would like you to consider is that our reality or the world that we live in can be redefined because everything that you see around you has been created by you. Everything! It is you who are creating your own world, all of it. It is you who are choosing your own thoughts and deciding between what is possible for you to achieve and what isn’t. In fact, if we create our own world, no one can ever ‘make’ us do anything. We...
  9. Age With Attitude. Introducing Lindsey Agness

    Comment
    Article by Lindsey Agness Feeling stuck?  Want to find out how to make the most out of your mid-life? I’ve developed the ‘8 Attitudes of the Successful Midlife Woman’, to provide women over 50 with a very practical approach and a tool-kit both to help them work out what they want out of life and to challenge any doubts they might have had about what is possible for them. Age is only a number So, what is an Attitude? Our Attitudes are made up of what we believe about ourselves and what’s important to us. Feeling good and enjoying life is a mindset that all of us can develop. You can make this choice at an emotional level (in terms of how you feel about yourself) and at a psychological level (in the way that you behave)....
  10. Age With Attitude One – I Live my life on Purpose

    Comment
    Article by Lindsey Agness Do you remember a time in the past when you were totally focused with goals that really excited you? When you knew exactly what you were going for and no one was going to stop you? Allow yourself to go back to that time now. Remember that sense of determination and how in control of your life you felt. Wasn’t it a wonderful feeling? Well, this Attitude is all about making those feelings a permanent fixture in your life and enabling you to live your life on purpose (in other words, as if you really mean it!) from this point onwards. Why should you set yourself goals? • Goals provide you with a destination. When we set goals, we are provided with a road map and a...
