Its important to stay flexible as you grow older.
.
Not necessarily as flexible as myself as I have hyper-mobility which is not a good thing so I have to be careful to not over-stretch.
Especially as I had a hip resurface ( like Andy Murray) a few years ago.
.
However exercising, stretching and moving every day, even if its just a 20 min dog walk will make a difference to your body, how you feel and also your mental health.

2nd guest speaker talk this week For Mental Health Week The topic is Body Image and Social Media For BNP Paribas Leasing Basingstoke

2nd guest speaker talk this week
For 
Mental Health Week 
The topic is
Body Image and Social Media 
For BNP Paribas Leasing Basingstoke.
.
I love doing these speaker talks for organisations or schools.
If I can inspire or change the mindset even of just a small percentage of my audience it's all worth while.
.
I want both women and men to aspire to be their unique best selves, to not aspire to be like the images that they perceive to be the reality on Instagram social media posts.
.
I'm wearing:
A current season £29.00 Zara dress.
I replaced the plastic red belt it came with, with a Gucci one.  I like to mix affordable High street with occasional Designer accessories.
Orange ballet shoes Zara past season.

Think of one word to describe

Think of one word to describe ......
"How you see yourself.
And then,
"How you think others see you.
"How you'd like others to see you."
.
Do your three answers match? 
They rarely do......

My wardrobe is eclectic and comprised of clothes bought randomly over many years

My wardrobe is eclectic and comprised of clothes bought randomly over many years.
.
How I chose to wear the mix of clothes each day depends on my mood.
Sometimes it's a baby pink day. 
It's whatever makes me feel good.
.
The moment I look at my choice of outfit and put it on, if it doesn't fill me with joy, then it's off with it straight away and a different outfit chosen. 
It doesn't have to be expensive, designer or even special.

But each outfit always has to flatter and fit my body shape and colouring.
Make me feel good the moment I put it on.
And 
Most importantly...
Love what I see in the mirror as a whole
with no judgement or critique of my body.
.
No one is perfect.
Imperfections are what make me and you unique and special.
.
Next week is mental health week 
And I will be discussing positive body image
In three public speaking engagements.

Tbt to when I was a QVC guest presenter for the fashion brand Bob Mackie

Tbt to when I was a QVC guest presenter for the fashion brand Bob Mackie.
.
Bob Mackie's Wearable Art was 'fashion for women of a certain age, who want to be noticed, not invisible. Fashion designed to flatter and create illusions of a better body shape.
.
I love inspiring older women to not be invisible or feel less than they were.  Helping women to be the best versions of themselves , whatever age, bodyshape or size they are, with no social media filters.
.
I hope to inspire positive body image, confidence, self-esteem and no comparison anxiety for better mental health. .

Do you have a “happy place”?

Do you have a "happy place"?
.
Mine is on the beach, riding the local riding stables pony Casper.
.
Being at one with a horse by the sea, with whom you have a rapport and a mutual trust is such a special and priviliged time.
.
It's easy to understand how interacting with a horse or a dog can help those with special needs, autism or mental health.
.
We all need metime and downtime from the stresses of everyday life and especially an escape from social media, being judged by others and mobile phone addiction. .
When everything in life seems currently to be so turbulent, unsettled and uncertain, a short escape from day to day reality is revitalizing and reboots a positive mindset.

Sometimes when you’ve been ill in bed with the worst flu for 5 days, then getting dressed in a vibrant colour and venturing out into the world and meeting friends just for a couple of hours can be the best recovery tonic medicine

This collection of CBD oils, capsules and creams are for me to test and trial with some of my lifestyle and wellness clients

This collection of CBD oils, capsules and creams are for me to test and trial with some of my lifestyle and wellness clients.
.
.
Until now I have been very anti CBD oils as I believed that any with enough strength to do anything significantly helpful would be addictive due to the addictive nature of THC compound in cannabis.
.
However the THC has been removed in all these products but they are still high strength enough to be effective.
.
So we here we have from L-R... Kat's Naturals organic CBD THC free drops- Heal: These high dose anti-inflammatory formula drops are peppermint flavoured and can help with anxiety, depression and insomnia.
.
.
Medterra drops are fast acting as they are absorbed sublingualy for anxiety and  pain relief during periods. These I am going to test out on a young women client.
.
.
The  Mediterra capsules can help lessen interrupted nightly sleep as they are slower to kick in as they are absorbed slower in the body than drops. These are what I am  goimg to try myself. Apparently they will not give a Melatonin style hangover effect in the morning.
.
.
The CBD pain cream can help arthritis and inflammation. I am going to try this on an arthritic finger and an ageing knee joint myself.
.
.
The Lucent botanical mints can help to be calming.
.
.
The tester sachet creams can help redness, rosacea etc.
.
.
I would be inyerested to know if any of my Instagram followers  have tried any CBD products for any medical reasons and how you got on.
I will report on my progress too.
