GUEST BLOG POST: 50 PLUS AND LOVING LIFE

Hi my name is Trish and I am passionate a out helping people to live their best lives through my work as a holistic therapist and healthy lifestyle advocate. I am a Holistic and Massage therapist, Fit Woman, Free Spirit, Healer, Teacher, Lover of Food and Adventure. I hope that by sharing my story I can inspire you in some small way.
Let me start by saying that I believe in ENERGY not age.
Two years ago at the tender age of 56 I qualified for the TV show Ninja Warrior UK. Who would have thought that a former secondary school science teacher would have been brave enough to even apply let alone qualify?
Giving ourselves limits because of our age holds back many of us – myself included.
I entered my 50s as a single parent in a job that was no longer nurturing my soul and I knew that I had to make some changes. The biggest factor was to reduce stress. I deserved better – we all do, so I walked away from my job and career of nearly 30 years one September morning and never returned. I joined a gym and threw myself into improving my health and so improving myself. Training became my antidepressant and I quickly lost 11kg gaining a fit, strong healthy body which I still have today 5 years later.
You may remember that I was jobless and a single parent so what could I do?
I decided to train as a holistic therapist and start my own business. As I felt happier and healthier, good things started to happen and I was offered a job at my gym running a nutritional shake bar. My scientific knowledge and my creative side had free rein, unlike my former job.
I was brave and made a big change which has changed my life for the better. In my fifties I am stronger both physically and mentally and have lots, more energy. Getting older is an opportunity to enjoy and live your life so welcome it with love.
