  2. How to be Fab over Fifty (and Under)

    Comment
    By Will Hussey, Gavin Oattes and Dr Andy Cope There was a time when you oozed. You oozed with vitality, vim and vigour.  In short, you oozed with life.  You were alive – not just living and breathing but, well – lively.  Trust us: You (Version 1a) were a bundle of spritely enthusiasm packaged in recyclable, re-chargeable packaging. But times have changed, I hear you say.  The world is different, not like the good old days.  Of course, even the good old days aren’t like how the good old days used to be.  But maybe it was simpler back then.  You went to work (or not) and returned home to more work, housework or a Kit-Kat.  But at least you escaped from the working day.  These days, there’s no...
  3. How we create our own obstacles and how to leap over them…

    Comment
    Article by Georgia Varjas “It is your right to question everything.” We are all born with a talent and/or creative genius. It may be a gift you have tingling in your soul to sing, paint or write. Perhaps, you’re desire is to communicate and lead, or it could be to mend, fix or repair, even care, love and give. I believe we all have natural abilities. And, I am also aware of how we down-grade ourselves and often conceal our natural gifts and talents. From an early age, codes, regulations and laws hold us back and keep us trapped in low-esteem jobs and painful relationships, while filling our heads with complexes and inhibitions. We end up hiding our natural talents, playing small...
  4. Is There An Ideal Age To Make New Friends?

    Comment
    Everybody remembers their best friend from school. Your meeting was writing in the stars, or at least, it wasn’t entirely in your control. The teacher sat you together on your first day of school. Within minutes, you were chatting as if you’d know each other all your lives, to the dismay of your teacher. When you think about it, teachers have been the first force of friendship. Nowadays, teachers play a significant role in helping young children to navigate the difficult rule of socialising at school. Many have introduced personal interaction skills and friend seeking as part of the essential day-to-day activities for primary school pupils. It’s easy to make friends when you’re at school because everybody shares the same values. When everybody around you...
  5. 3 Reasons Why It’s Important to Maintain a (Real) Social Network in Life

    Comment
      There are all sorts of things which are said to contribute to a healthy sense of well-being, balance, and satisfaction in life over 50. Fulfilling work is certainly one of these things. Optimal overall health, and good nutrition play important roles too. But, one of the things that is most consistently regarded as essential is maintaining a healthy social network. Some of us are naturally less social and more introverted than others. And various situations in life – including even just getting older, or moving away for work – can mean that we are less socially engaged than we would ideally like to be. All the same, here are some reasons why it’s important to maintain a real social network in life.   1. Some degree of social interaction...
  6. Arise and Shine – how a great morning routine can make you happy

    Comment
    Article by Emma-Sue Prince   What’s your typical morning routine like? How you start your day impacts every single part of your day.  Once I realised that and changed how I began the day the effect was transformational. How you start the day pretty much dictates how the rest of your day will go and in terms of happiness, it is everything! So many people don’t necessarily think about that time period right at the beginning of the day when they wake up. They tend to do more or less the same thing – often putting the alarm back on snooze, or most of the time reaching for their phone and straight away checking for messages, news, email and social media. Then rolling out...
  7. 5 Ways to Step Up to Integrity

    Comment
    Article by Carole Ann Rice Just as no one admits to being a bad driver or a lukewarm lover, we find it hard to put our hand up to being out of integrity. Yet this is no brain twister – you are either in integrity or you are not. It’s really that simple. So how can you tell? When you are out of integrity, life’s “stuff” seems to conspire against you – people, bills, bad debts, relationships, and your health. You find yourself reacting in a bad way to others, life starts to feel something you endure rather than enjoy and there’s a sense that something is missing. There are many ways we can fool ourselves to avoid being authentic. Blaming others, things or circumstances or feeling...
  8. 5 Ways to Achieve your New Year’s Resolutions

    Comment
    Article by Carole Ann Rice When it comes to the New Year, many of us use this as a time to set goals for ourselves for the next 12 months that lie ahead. Whether it’s losing an unrealistic amount of weight or starting a new niche hobby, our New Year’s resolutions are often extreme and set us up for a fall – leaving us feeling demoralised and distraught when by the time spring rolls into town. However, it doesn’t have to be this way. Most of Top Life Coach Carole Ann Rice’s work focuses on making people the best versions of themselves. In light of this, Carole has decided to share 5 ways to achieve your new year’s resolutions. 1. Be realistic – when setting your goal, it’s...
  9. Poignant Lessons I Learnt About Slowing Down In Palm Springs

    Comment
    Article by Claire Nash I love exploring the world. Travel for me is usually the chance to see new places, try things I’ve never done before, eat strange cuisines, and have fun with strangers. The older I get, the more adventurous I become. At least that’s how it’s always been. Recently, I found myself longing for a break. All I wanted was to get away to rejuvenate. Maybe it was my body telling me that I was on the verge of a burnout. But I think it was more than that. One of the reasons I’ve run myself ragged is because I don’t want to give in to my age. I feel like slowing down will be an admission that my body can no longer handle...
  10. Coping with Change in your 50s

    Comment
    Article by Beverley Harvey This weekend with only my faithful dog for company, I sat and sobbed my way through Finding Your Feet. It’s a wonderful film that has a stellar cast of a certain age; Imelda Staunton, Timothy Spall, Celia Imrie and Joanna Lumley all act their socks off. It’s warm, witty and very funny in parts – but laden with pathos, too, so I highly recommend keeping the tissues to hand. I don’t want to spoil the plot, so I’ll just say that the story centres on coping with change. In this case, it’s concerning the abrupt end of a 40-year old marriage due to infidelity. The shock and despair of such a breakup is surely right up there with bereavement, and...
