Strike now, you never know what could be waiting around the corner.
50 is the perfect time to start making important changes in your life.

5. Focus on all your positive features like sparkly eyes, great ankles, lovely nails, or your hair and not the parts of you that you aren't so fond of.

6. Stop doing things because you feel you ought to, only do the things that give you pleasure. That doesn't mean becoming self-centered because doing things for others is often a pleasure. What it does mean is that you are not ground down by negative activities that drain you.

7. Be kind to yourself. It's Ok to feel tired, be unsure, or even on occasions knocked off course. Accept that's where you, re focus on what it is that you want and go back on your journey to achieve it.
