When someone tells you that you can’t, turn around and say “watch me.” Anonymous
Often, when a woman decides to let her hair go grey it symbolises a change from within. It can happen at midlife, but it can happen at any age or stage of life.
While you are transitioning to grey hair, you may find this is the perfect time to nurture yourself from the inside out by looking to your lifestyle and making changes that reflect what you want out of your life.
If you haven’t already, use this time to embed that exercise regime you always said you would.
Perhaps start some meditation, yoga or some sort of relaxation and calm too.
Eat nourishing foods that promote better health and wellbeing and sort out any ‘niggling’ health problems you have.
Now is also the time to find a good skincare and make up regime if you haven’t got one that is serving you properly.
Make this the ideal time for you to make any lifestyle changes to enhance your wellbeing in all aspects of life.
With the approach of 40 and with so much change going on in my life, particularly with my hair going grey and the condition of it deteriorating through too much dyeing and heat styling, I decided to look into ways I could move forward.
Although, I had, with some uncertainty, decided to let my hair grow out to its natural colour in 2016, I did not want to compromise on my style and sense of self. I also wanted to look and feel my very best during this time of change.
I am pleased to report, that my experience has been extremely positive and I certainly don’t look or feel older because of my hair colour, which is what ‘society’ has lead us to believe.
This encouragement from my personal experience has propelled me into actually starting this blog, because if I can inspire just one woman to break free from the cycle of dyeing their hair or just to feel good about their decision through my experience, then it is absolutely worth it.
My transition to grey hair has not just been about how I physically look. It has absolutely been a symbol of so much more than that! It has been a symbol of inner change too. I am now much more focused on nurturing my body from the inside out and ensuring that I stay positive as much as possible.
I look forward to sharing all my discoveries to help you achieve the best ‘you’ possible at this time of change. This blog is all about how I can help you!!!!
How can Silver-Style- Life help you on your journey?
Silver- Style -Life.com is all about helping women embrace change in all aspects of life and that transitioning to grey hair, is often just a symbol of that inner change.
During any time of change, it is important to nurture our bodies from the inside out through positive lifestyle choices. At silver- style- life.com our focus will be on, not only hair, but skin and makeup, healthy living choices- exercise and diet and everything in between as well.
I believe beauty starts from within and radiates out. If we love ourselves, then we choose to exercise, we choose to eat well, we choose all the things in life that can help us function at our best.
Life can sometimes get in the way and we can lose our sense of self . We forget to look after ourselves….but going forward, that is all going to change for you if you so choose. These are the areas of focus for positive lifestyle choices.
Exercise- I am a qualified Personal Trainer, and although I don’t work in the Fitness Industry anymore, I do know the importance of exercise and the benefits it has on ones wellbeing and exercise remains very much a focus for me and I suggest it also becomes a focus for you.
The benefits of exercise are plentiful and there are so many types of exercise to choose from. All you have to do, is find the right one for you!
Nourishing food- My husband and I own a cafe/ bistro, so preparing and discussing food both at work and, of course for our family, make up a large part of our life.
I am obsessed with balance and a healthy diet for my whole family and when this ‘slips’, then everything else seems to go along with it. That is why, I am committed to a healthy diet without actually ever going on a diet.
I am always on the look out for new and fresh recipes and ideas that are practical and easy while also supporting the quest for healthy skin, hair and wellbeing.
I believe now is the time, no matter what our age or stage of life, to embrace our authenticity, not only through our transition to grey hair, but also by focusing on making positive lifestyle choices that are in line with our own goals and aspirations, regardless of what society dictates.
