  1. 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...
  2. 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...
  3. 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...
  4. 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)....
  5. 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...
  6. How to Overcome Anxiety and Stress

    Comment
    Article by Garth Delikan  the  Lifestyle Guy Stress is a funny old thing and can arise from any kind of thought or situation that makes you feel frustrated, angry or anxious. However, stress really is an inevitable part of life and in small quantities it can be incredibly motivating, empowering and productive. But as we all know too much stress can have the opposite effect completely and can undermine your health, make you feel ill and leave you susceptible to infection, heart disease or even depression, all those things we really don’t want in our lives. Fight or flight syndrome You don’t need me to tell you but isn’t it horrible how habitual and persistent feelings of stress and anxiety can interfere in the way you live your life. When...
  7. Tips for a Happier Life…Whatever Your Age

    1
    Guest article by Judith Brady I recently received a newsletter from a client and friend called Hazel-Ann Lorkins of LifeSparkle™    which I found really inspiring – a list of suggestions for a happier life. As Hazel-Ann is one of the most energetic, positive and wise women I have met, I knew her ideas would be worth some attention.  Hazel-Ann is in her 60s, has more or less retired from the corporate world but still finds it difficult to fit in all the things she wants to do, she has so many interests and passions. Make peace with the past so it wont spoil the present Here are some of her suggestions: • Take a 10-30 minute walk every day and while you walk, smile • Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day • Sleep for...
  8. Smiles are Free – and You Never Run Out!

    Comment
     Article by Vicky We all like to be around positive people, people who tend to be happy, who look on the bright side of life and always greet you with a smile. Far too many people walk around in what seems like a depressed state with a little black cloud hovering over their heads.  It costs nothing to smile! I have to admit, I used to be one of the people  who walked around in a mildly depressed state of mind. I had so much going round in my mind,  so many things I was unhappy about, I always felt so sorry for myself. I look back now and I  laugh about how pathetic I used to be and how I must have seemed to others. Sandwich generation But...
  9. Making a Good First Impression – 8 Tips

    1
    Article by Fabafterfifty. You only have one chance to make a good first impression. You have to convey confidence when you walk into a room. Easier said than done, especially if you are a little on the shy side (like me) I was lucky enough to be invited along by Dove to a class at RADA , where we were quickly shown how we could best make a confident entrance – in any setting. Here are just some of the tips we were given. Tips for making a good first impression: Remember to walk into a room with good postural alignment (head, neck and back connected). Keep weight evenly distributed on both feet, whether sitting or standing (be grounded) Think about where you place your arms. Arms relaxed and down by sides is...
  10. Confidence and the Female Job Seeker

    Comment
    Article By Jane C Woods It’s a bit of a jungle out there at the moment, especially if you are an older woman in the job market. Jobs are few and far between and even if you have one, it may not be the job of your dreams. The stats are telling us that women are getting hit disproportionately more than men in the current recession. Recently the Institute of Leadership and Management identified three main factors stopping women getting to the top. They were: • Women had less confidence and self belief than men e.g. 20% of men will apply for a role despite only partially meeting its job description, compared to 14% of women. • Women had varied career paths and had to step off career ladder to have children. • Women didn’t expect to get senior positions...
