Over 50. Not the Hill.
I’m Liz Grantham, founder of TheOptimal.me. I’m 53, an entrepreneur and single mum. When my full but stressful lifestyle collided with the aches and pains of aging, I realized I had to find a way to embrace and enjoy the years ahead. After all, it’s what I had been dreaming of and working so hard for! I didn’t want to become obsessed with anti-aging – I wanted to embrace getting older. Most importantly, I wanted to be honest with myself, and keep my sense of humour.
Over 50, Not the Hill combines notes from my journey to feeling better, more energized, and looking ahead with a growing sense of anticipation, inspiration and freedom with the realities of life beyond 45.
If I told you the fastest way to look and feel younger didn’t include $1k anti-aging serums or skinny jeans, would you believe me? The anti-aging powers of regular movement and exercise are undeniable – here’s how it can work for you!
Have you ever reminisced about the parallels in the life experiences of mid-lifers and teens? Does our current age mean we deal with these recurring life changes through rebellion and unhealthy choices or can we harness our midlife wisdom?
Just count to 10 and breathe ….. but are you getting the full impact of deep, diaphragmatic breathing when you need to get your frustration levels under control or just generally feel better? Maybe not. This might be your solution. You’ve got nothing to lose except 10 minutes!
No matter our situation, we’re all feeling out of kilter at the moment. As we look to navigate our way through our days, weeks and months, we must accept it’s ok to feel however we feel.
As I got older, I learnt that our physical and emotional wellbeing are intrinsically linked. If we can improve our mind-body connection, we have better control over how we age. But why, and how? How can we work towards ensuring life unfolds, rather than unravels?
The relationship between food and weight is very often trying. But a few simple steps changed everything and helped me develop a healthy, wholesome relationship with food. 12 years on and I’m healthy, well, and best of all, never guilty about enjoying my favorite indulgences!
Aging is a fact of life, but we can control how we age. Our ability to move freely will keep us independent and active as we get older. For me, my physical freedom is all about possibility. What does physical freedom mean to you?
Follow my journey and find four good reasons you too should make movement your medicine. From managing stress to reducing aches and pains, movement radically improved my quality of life. Maybe it can help you too?
As mid-lifers, maintaining our independence is paramount, that’s what motivated me to find this game-changer on my journey to make midlife magical.
