Every so often we all need a digital detox

Every so often we all need a digital detox.
.
Even if we don't feel or have social media comparison anxiety, we can still feel a need to post daily so we don't lose followers, and our followers don't lose interest.
.
So if I don't post every day, please don't get bored and disappear. .
My Instafeed is real, not filtered, hoping to inspire, and may not always be real time as I'm not out every day and night. .
I'm often in many evenings on my own watching TV. My life can even be quite boring, mundane and even lonely. .
That is something that most people would not want to admit on their social media.
.
I'm currently in the middle of writing a novel which is nearly finished, and that requires huge discipline, no distractions, sitting at my laptop with all emails and social media switched off.
.
So today I've posted a bare-faced, no-make-up  selfie pic of my 64 year old me. Just as I am. No filters. This is me. .

Still keeping supple at age 64

Still keeping supple at age 64.
.
Not necessarily the most flattering position but hey... at least the body is still mobile, even with the left hip re-surfaced a few years ago and various other injuries.
.
For my fitness regime I try to do Pilates, mat or reformer, 3 times a week. Anything else is in addition or if I can't get to a Pilates class.
.
My Pilates posts aren't always real time so don't believe I am a fitness fanatic and exercising every single day - I'm not! .
If I'm in the Isle of Wight I love to horse ride on the beach.
.
I also do occasional dance classes which can help memory as well as fitness, as  concentration is needed to remember routines.
.
Boxing mixed with HIIT in the gym is great for cardio and fat burning and also concentration as I dont want to be punched on the nose

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. .

Roll on Summer

Roll on Summer. .
Positivity and gratitide is so important.
.
We should never wish time or life to move on as every moment we have is so precious
but 
some lovely sunny weather together with a shift in the current energy surrounding us, creating positive things to happen in all ways would be a good thing. .
