Apologies to listeners. The wrong file was uploaded on Friday. Tech mistake our end! We hope you enjoy..... Don't Be A Fatty Over Fifty - Boris Johnson’s words apparently - after attributing his weight to his life threatening experience of coronavirus. Although they may seem harsh - the truth is, a shocking 1 in 3 people in the UK are obese - and being obese doubles your chance of needing hospital treatment for coronavirus. It also means you're 10 times more likely to die of it.  Of course the virus is deadly - but it's time to wake up and stop burying our heads in the sand. Approximately 34,000 people die due to obesity related illnesses per year and it costs the NHS £5-6 billion. This is a huge, societal problem and coronavirus has rightly shone an even brighter light on it. Worrying about whether it's politically correct to discuss obesity, for fear of being labelled 'fat shaming' won't solve the issue.  Education, knowledge and emotional support it's what's needed to truly help overweight and obese people live the healthy, happy life they deserve. Prevention is always better than cure. And we're 100% committed to doing what we can.... To join our live virtual fitness and wellbeing retreat next weekend, click this link https://cutt.ly/dyQx1Ci

Risks. Our brain is hardwired to avoid them.  But without taking risks, we’ll never be able to step into who we’re meant to be and experience the richness life has to offer.  In this episode we’ll explore why comfort zones destroy our spirit and how not taking a risk, is a risk in itself.  We share our personal stories, along with practical tips, in the hope they encourage and inspire you to take even a little leap of faith. Because - there's truth and wisdom in the saying...'We only regret the chances we didn't take.'

GCSE exam stress. It’s an emotive and important topic for many mid lifers. Not only because it’s tough to see your child under so much pressure, but because you’ll inevitably need to navigate the highs and lows - which of course, deeply impact you and the rest of the family.  That’s why we’re thrilled to have Paul and Emily Hughes from parentguidetogcse.com on the show, giving their practical advice and solutions on how to help your child reach their maximum potential and make this tricky time more bearable.  Having spent 15 years at teachers, they not only have great resources but a wonderful supportive community.

Sugar. It’s highly addictive, hidden in every day food we consume and is responsible for the huge surge in diabetes around the world - causing approximately 500 unnecessary premature deaths each week in the UK.  By 2025 it’s estimated just under 5 million people in the UK will suffer with the disease and we believe not enough is being done to warn people of the damaging, long term implications of sugar on their mental and physical health. Mid lifers - don’t be another statistic.  Listen to this podcast so you can not only increase your chances of living a long life, but safeguard the quality of it.

We've wanted to give up. We've all wanted to give up. It's natural. Sometimes it feels to hard, too emotional, too much of a struggle. That's the focus of this episode. The past few months have been challenging - so much so it threw us off course delivering these wonderful podcasts. But we're back with a bang and without a doubt, this is one of the most vulnerable, open and most importantly, highly relevant episode we've recorded. In this episode we get down and dirty about how we've managed to pull ourselves back from some seriously life changing stuff...and come out of it with a greater sense of power, purpose and self acceptance. We hope you enjoy it....

Life has thrown us a few BIG curveballs - hence a slightly longer gap between Season 2 and Season 3.  But we’re here - living in central London and loving every single moment of it.  In this episode, we share how this particular curve ball has made us even more determined and committed to inspiring you to thrive. We touch upon why we believe so many of you write in to us with the same challenges. Why, it seems, so many people feel lost and dissatisfied with their life and to a degree, don’t know where to begin turning it around.  This episode is perhaps a little controversial - but it’s designed to give comfort and understanding. Along with some nuggets of wisdom to support you through mid life. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/T3YCLPR

At mid life many of us experience the squeeze of mortgages, children, ageing parents and feel trapped by our current financial situation.

However, just like our health, it's never too late to address the issue and luckily - the wonderful Jenny has some fantastic tips and advice on how to heal our money blocks so we can thrive, not just survive.
