  3. The Stress Guru’s Festive Season Stress Tips

    Comment
    Article by Carole Spiers December can be a stressful time for many different reasons. The shops are crowded, the weather is often miserable and shortening days and lengthening nights make us feel as though we’re constantly running to keep up with the demands placed upon us. This year the credit crunch will most certainly add to the stress of the festive season for many of us. The pressure to meet the expectations of your family and create a special and memorable Christmas on a reduced budget will be challenging to say the least. Then of course there’s the drain on our bodies created by the party season. This can become an ‘endurance test’, where one office party or social gathering follows another in an endless cycle of late nights and subsequent hangovers. Christmas can be a sad and difficult...
  4. 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...
  5. 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...
  6. 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...
  7. 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...
  8. 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...
  9. 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...
  10. 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...
