The first week of the ‘Being an Active Participant in Life Challenge’ is completed. During the week I shared prompts to encourage an active lifestyle in mind, body and spirit on my Instagram and in the Women Living Well After 50 Facebook Group. During this first week I also wanted to make the point that to participate fully in life you need a good foundation to work from. That means that you need a good health and wellness base. If you aren’t feeling healthy on the inside and have a body that will support your activity then that affects how you enjoy life. In this post, I’m sharing the 3 Esse ..read more

Have you lost your ‘zest’ for life, your ‘joie de vivre’? It happens to us all and it happened to me one day last week. I also read a post from Marsha in the Middle suggesting that she was ‘over winter’ and asking the question: Are You Maxed Out? Long winters can certainly sap you of your enthusiasm and joy for life but there are many factors that can cause you to fall into the ‘can’t be bothered’ trap. Living a life with Zest means we are thriving and enjoying being alive.  The British philosopher, Bertrand Russel, said “What hunger is in relation to food, zest is in relation to life”&n ..read more

When was the last time you laughed out loud? Are we getting too serious as we age? I hope not! The world is not a happy place at the moment and it is easy to fall into negative thoughts and despair.

I cannot begin to imagine what life is like and I’m brought to tears watching the nightly news reports. For me, these horrors make me realise just how very lucky I am to live in Australia and I feel so grateful and blessed. I am also extremely grateful to be enjoying a trip to Amst ..read more

Happy Thursday @everyone! Are you looking after your health and required screenings? Do you need to make an appointment?
