Laugh Yourself Well at 50+ Julie Kelly

When was the last time you had a really good belly laugh? The ones that make tears roll down your cheeks, making you hold your tummy with pain? 

Did you know – A right good belly laugh, not only decreases stress hormones & increases immune cells, it also triggers serotonin known as the body’s natural feel good chemicals.

This & other endorphins released in laughter, can also act to temporarily relieve pain. It’s probably also why, many of us ‘middle agers’ are trying out Laughter Yoga.

Laughter Yoga was created in 1995 by Dr Madan Kataria in a park in Mumbai India, and it’s really taken off. Please see link.

50+ & Unleashed

“Act Your Age” they say. You’re over 50 and still acting like a teenager!

Do you feel, like turning 50 made you invisible? Overnight, people suddenly seem to speak louder & more slowly because you’re ‘old’.

The wolf whistles definitely stopped when I turned 50 but thats ok – I don’t keep my wisdom in my ass.

Wisdom of Experience & Wisdom of ageing, both the most precious gift a person can share or receive.

But don’t be fooled! Hitting the big 50 doesn’t mean holding back – or (in the words of the hilariously brilliant ( Sir Billy Connolly) ‘Become Beigeist’

On the contrary!! Listen up our stick thin, fresh air sandwich & skinny latte brigade! We middle agers were once just like you. Before the fat rolls & creaky joints that is, and one hair started sprouting from the chin with a life of its own.

It’s a Dog’s Life 7 times over- By Julie Kelly

Ageing can be far from fun thats for sure. But if you thought we had it tough – try seeing things from a canine perspective.

These days, when I get home from work, it’s on with the PJ’s and a good chill out on the sofa. That’s my relaxation buzz.

But just imagine, if each year of your life was the equivalent of 7.

According to a recent article by, that’s exactly the case with our pets. Research suggests, multiplying one year of your dog by 7, gives a pretty accurate idea of their real age. So it makes perfect sense, as our little fur babies get older, they too start to need extra care just like humans.

Arthritis, Irritability, Weight control, Sight and Hearing issues are all

Penny For Your Thoughts! Julie Kelly

It’s 3am and there you are – wide awake staring at the ceiling, pondering life’s dilemmas. What are you thinking?

For me, its how I don’t want the silence of the dawn to end. The birds haven’t woken yet so I give myself permission to think in silence.

Soon the day will erupt into an orchestra of sound, each instrument playing a different note – some flat and others beautifully melodic.

The realisation has come in the silence, at 50+ Im over half a century old. This being said, what does it matter about the tune of life? At least I can still hear it. 🤣

What do you think about in the silence of dawn?
