Ever wanted to feel like flying? Well meet Hitz Legit 137, alias Krishna Everson, ace roller skater and amazingly fit and fifty woman who does the next best thing, roller skating. Krishna saw her first pair of skates at about age 8, fell in love with them and has been skating ever since. She loves it so much that one day when she was asked if she would like to try out for a roller derby, there began another chapter of her skating life. Krishna talks about the physicality of skating and the benefits of it, as well as taking us through some of the rules and language of the game.
Krishna encourages us all to at least go and watch a game, with great music and the glamour of the players she says you will be hooked. If you know how to skate then pull them out of the cupboard, put them on, and go for a spin. If not go anyway and maybe you can learn too, after all we only live once.
Undies under your Knicks or not? Find out the answer when I chat with Jan Stevenson about women's cycling gear. We cover off everything from correctly fitting helmets through to little gadgets to help you be seen and why you shouldn't shake hands in your gloves. Even if you don't ride it is a fun conversation about women being fit and having fun.
Resilience in times of change. What is it, why do you need it and how do you get it? Listen is as I talk with Valerie Orton an expert in resilience and helping people harness it to manage life’s ever changing landscape.
Our conversation takes us from a ski lodge in Austria, to the wonders of your mirror and loving yourself. Valerie talks about the 7 “R’s” of resilience, which she features in her about to be released book, and shares what she thinks are the three most important things for women over 50 in developing resilience for themselves.
A very in-depth conversation about what it takes to be a more complete human being so you can enjoy what life has to offer you.
One of the most interesting things that can happen when you are over 50 is the arrival of Grandchildren. For many of us it is a new and different experience as we revisit all of the things we learned as young mothers.
Dympna Kennedy works with new mothers, and fathers in the first 12 months of the babies’ life. In particular women who have had a high flying corporate career or executive position where everything has always turned out just right. As we all know a new baby is not at all like that and it can be a pretty hair raising journey as you learn all about your new little person.
Dympna also works with the extended family and that more often than not involves Grandparents which is why she is talking with us all about how to be a great Grandmother. Dympna takes us through some of the science of new babies and their brain development to explain why they behave as they do. She also talks about how to help and how to be a part of making sure a new baby feels safe and loved.
Trish Walker amazing, incredible shrinking woman and an absolute inspiration. Trish had spent her whole life battling with being very overweight. In fact, she gained and lost 50 kgs three times during her life until she found a solution that worked for her.
Trish talks candidly about what that journey was like and how she found the key to remaining fit, healthy and well. Her conversation will inspire and delight you and I am positive there will be some things that you can relate to as well.
