  1. Wendy asks: Is becoming invisible over 50 similar to becoming a Stepford Wife?

    Comment
    Article by Wendy Reichental I remember watching The Stepford Wives, the 1975 version, now considered a cult classic, and was absolutely obsessed with it. It starred Katharine Ross as the doe-eyed, intuitive and devoted Mrs. Joanna Eberhart. The movie’s plotline follows Joanna as a budding photographer, wife and mother who at her husband’s insistence agrees to uproot their family from the grime and grind of big city life to a Norman Rockwell-style Utopian suburb of Stepford, Connecticut. First impressions are paramount. It’s not long before Joanna suspects that something is amiss among these beguiling, housecleaning obsessed robot-like women of Stepford. Following the rules of society The phrase “Stepford wife” has now become part of our vernacular. It epitomizes somebody with a perfect facade who obediently follows the accepted rules of society. Since being recently...
  2. Energy is ageless! Manifesting success, love and more after 50!

    Comment
    Article by Esther McCann a.k.a. missmanifesther If there’s one thing lockdown has done, it’s opened people up to nurturing their mindset because they’re recognising that their emotional wellbeing is just as important as their physical health. In addition to wellness practices like mindfulness and meditation, manifestation has emerged as a leading mindset and spiritual vehicle for living a positive life and creating the reality you want. Even in a pandemic! For those who are unfamiliar with the Law of Attraction (LOA), it’s the basic principle that like attracts like, that what we believe about ourselves we become, and what we keep focusing on (good or bad) “manifests” in our reality. For example, when you seem to be spiralling and it’s one thing after another vs when...

    Comment
    A lot has changed in the past year, since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. We all had to adjust our way of life to new restrictions and social distancing. And let’s be honest – it hasn’t been the easiest. However, one thing we should be grateful for is that the time spent inside allowed us to learn things that are more or less essential in life.

  5. Feeling Stuck in a Rut? Try These Tips and Tricks to Break Free

    Comment
      Sometimes life is plodding along nicely, and then one day you wake up and realise that you are bored. It is so easy to get into the habit of following the same routine every day that you may not even realise that it is happening. As we grow older, we tend to settle into routines, and life tends to throw up fewer surprises than it did when we were younger. Before too long, your life can feel like groundhog day, and you may feel unsure how to claw your way out of the rut that you find yourself in. This can feel like a deeply frustrating situation, and you may choose to carry on as usual and bury these feelings of dissatisfaction in the...

  7. January challenge: Self Care Tips to stay Fabulous over 50

    Comment
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon   After such a prolonged period of lockdowns, isolation and uncertainty, we are all carrying an underlying  level stress that we don’t usually experience in our everyday lives. Add possible home schooling and concern for elderly parents into the mix and we have recipe for burnout. I know that I am finding the current lockdown far harder than the previous ones – the cold weather and shorter days make it far harder than the summer lockdown where at least I could spend time in the garden- and look forward to a weekend of reading in the garden while having a glass of rose wine! “Self-compassion is simply giving the same kindness to ourselves that we would give to others.” Christopher Germer ...
  8. New Year Challenge Day 10 to Stay Fabulous Over 50 in Lockdown: Learn to Say No

    Comment
    Challenge set by Ceri Wheeldon   “You can be a good person with a kind heart and still say no.” Lori Deschene It is so easy to get overwhelmed and spread ourselves too thin. How often do you agree to do something through obligation and later regret the decision? As women we are natural caretakers and it can be so easy to put ourselves at the back of the queue when it comes to  investing ourselves. We hate to disappoint and it can be so easy to step in to help others when asked in spite of the pressure it might place ourselves under.  If you are constantly behaving as a people pleaser it can be easy to let your boundaries get blurred...

    Article by Ceri Wheeldon What would you do with an extra hour each day? “Wake up an hour early to live an hour more.” – Unknown Welcome to Day 8 of our January Challenge.

Apparently 40% of us are morning larks and 30% night owls with the rest somewhere in between. I definitely fit into the night owl category – and have quite an elaborate morning alarm system to make sure I am up, ready and at my desk by about 8:30.  I am the type that puts the...
