Loneliness strikes at all ages, but as we get older, many of us tend to notice it more.
Children have fled the nest to get on with life, and we still feel 22 but the body passionately disagrees. In these situations, as most of my readers will know – it’s easy to lose our mojo so what’s to be done?
Mookaite is a pretty good solution I’ve found. It’s a great companion if you’re prone to feelings of loneliness or melancholy. Mookaite helps bring about emotional balance whilst instilling feelings of hope, joy, and excitement. Its grounding, shielding, and nurturing energies will keep us strong and stable, protect us from negative energies, and provide the emotional energy-care we need.
Carrying a piece of Mookaite, or simply having it on the table next to you, will help sustain you through difficult times, bringing feelings of peace and comfort.

Turning 50 is a kind of milestone. Whether we like it or not, we’re actually half a century old – quite a revelation don’t you think?
But, if you’re struggling with anxiety, you’re not alone. Globally, 1 in 13 people also struggle, according to a University of Queensland study.
It seems over recent years, more and more people are looking into alternate methods to alleviate anxiety.
From personal experience, I have found crystal healing to be a valuable part of this. Using grounding stones like Amethyst can help usher calm and balance into your life.
There are many different kinds of crystals, for many different ailments and conditions. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Amethyst however, is the perfect crystal for balancing and reducing anxiety especially in the over 50s
We all have those moments when we know our pets aren’t well.
They look so sad but we just can’t put our finger on what’s wrong. Animals can’t speak our language but as an animal communicator and holistic healer, I’m able to tune in to your animal’s unique energy frequency to find out what’s ailing them.
When did you last have a real good Belly Laugh? One that sent tears rolling & gave you tummy ache?
Like most of us, I bet you cant even remember.
When we’re young, laughter comes naturally. But as we enter adult – hood, responsibility creeps in and we forget the joy.
A great way to remedy this, is through a system called ’Laughter Yoga’ an exercise involving prolonged voluntary laughter. Don’t panic! Laughter Yoga isn’t strenuous. This type of yoga, is all about laughing for no other reason than to improve health.
When we laugh, the chemical serotonin is released into the blood stream. Serotonin is the body’s natural ’happy chemical’ with the same physiological and psychological benefits as the anti depressants our GPs prescribe.
The only difference, it has far fewer unpleasant side effects.
Laughter yoga is all about the breath or (prana) keeping the lungs healthy and the breath flowing is crucial as we advance with age.

As we get older, the most bizarre things start happening. Energy levels drop, hair grows in places we never knew existed and we start piling on the weight.
If this sounds like you – you’re not alone!
Julie is a spiritual teacher & holistic healthcare practitioner, but as she explains:-
“When I turned 50, everything made me anxious. Sagging skin, middle aged spread, losing my looks, energy & flexibility etc. All these things sent abject terror right through me. It came in overwhelming waves – sometimes out of nowhere” It’s strange how we never think it will happen to us. We’re meant to be the caregiver – not the cared for right? So what can we do about it?
Here I’m sharing my Top 3 tried & tested Tips for 50+ self care survival.
(1) Take Back Control:
Most of us get anxious because we fear a future that hasn’t even happened yet. But why waste the beautiful opportunity of now?
So – you finally decided to give meditation a serious try. You’ve found a find a quiet space where you wont be disturbed & you’ve got yourself comfy but then the problems begin….
Suddenly, out of nowhere the most bizarre thoughts begin to distract you. For example, What to cook for tea, why the world is round, why it suddenly started snowing in the middle of spring etc. Things that up until now, you hadn’t really given much thought.
Does this sound like you? Well take a deep breath – you’re doing it right.
Throughout the years, we become great teachers of trying to train the mind to focus on 100 things at one time.
Whilst there are many physically fit 50+ Year olds, turning 50 does bring its own trials and tribulations.
We may notice physical changes and our mental health can really suffer in terms of anxiety and increased stress levels. Don’t panic! Help is just around the corner. Did you know, you can reduce stress, and improve many aspects of your health in just 10 minutes?
Here’s What To Do
Find yourself a comfortable space, where you’re not likely to be disturbed for at least 10 minutes. Sit quietly with your back straight or supported. Close the mouth and eyes, bringing your awareness to the breath as it enters the nostrils and leaves. Pay attention to air temperature as you inhale and how it changes as you exhale. Also, become aware of any sound the breath makes as you inhale and exhale.
10 minutes it is actually not a long time, but you’d be amazed at how the mind can wander when you’re trying to keep it focused. If this happens simply bring your attention back to the breath.
Daily 10 minute practice on observing the breath has been evidenced to greatly reduce stress levels & allow better lung function. Some people say it has helped with conditions such as COPD. Here are a few more tips on breath-work.
