Dating Tips for Women in Their 40s.

By April Braswell

 

If you’re a single woman in her 40s and you’ve recently started dating. A great guy who you think might be the man for you, congratulations!

You’ve successfully navigated meeting him and going on the first date plus a few more. Perhaps you two have gotten past.

The initial small talk and have started discussing a relationship together. Now what?

First, now that you’re in your 40s, remember, you have all the time in the world. There is no need to race to exclusivity.

Before you commit yourself to a relationship with this great guy, ask yourself, “Am I ready to take myself out of the dating pool?”

Before you remove yourself from the “after 40” dating scene, you want to make sure. You’ve done a few things to be certain about what you’re doing.

 

 

How Many Mature Men Have You Considered?

 

Have you met and dated at least 10 men in the past year or so? If you’re close to that number, that’s OK. 10 is just a guideline. It is not a strict requirement.

 

 

What Types of Men Over 40 Have You Dated?

 

Also, have you allowed yourself to consider some very different men? That you’ve dated when you were in your 20s and early 30s? Now that you’re in your 40s, some of your husband’s requirements.

It might still be the same as they were when you were younger. However, their order of priority might be different.

Let me give you an example. If now you’re a divorced and single mom, then you are not looking for great potential father material. Your children, hopefully, still have their father.

What you’re looking for now is a man who would be a good stepdad. A good stepdad is typically more of a part-time job than a full-time job.

Unless your children’s dad is no longer around. This is just to illustrate how your life is different now than in your 20s.

 

 

Does Your Man Have Time to Share with You?

 

Also, by now that you’re in your 40s, you have an established career. You might not be looking for a man with massive earning potential. Because now you have that financial security and status yourself!

What does that mean for you now for your after 40 mate selection? Naturally, you want a man who is financially stable.

You also want a man who has enough time and outside interests. To share himself with you and be an interesting life companion, right?

Now that you’ve considered what you want in a relationship. And if you are saying yes to most of these questions, then, yes agree to become exclusive!

As the two of you start a relationship, remember to share both fun date nights going out. As well as the daily activities of life, like grocery shopping together. Have fun and let me know how it’s going.

How to Be Attractive in Your 50s.

By April Braswell

 

 

 

Did you just celebrate your 50th birthday? Congratulations! You are now in your 50s. A whole different world of dating and internet dating sites have opened to you.

When you’re “single and looking” in your 50s. Several the same dating etiquette rules and guidelines.

Apply to senior love as they did when you were younger. One of those is that whether you are a mature man or lady, you want to look your best.

The problem is when you’re 25 years old. All you need to do is roll out of bed, shower, brush your teeth and comb your hair, and you look terrific.

Now that you’re single and in your 50s, you can still look great and be attractive. It’s just that now in your 50s to be attractive, you need to apply a little more concerted effort.

First, good basic grooming still applies. Yes, that means showering and shaving.

 

 

For the Gentlemen in their 50s:

 

Several men in their 50s often want to skip shaving at least a few days a week. A little beard stubble can be attractive to a man in his 50s.

However, gentlemen, do talk to your barber and be sure to groom your stubble. It might grow unevenly. You can sport a modern stubble look, just do keep it trimmed and tidy.

Secondarily, do try some aftershaves to discover what you like. Some men can use just a touch of a masculine scent by simply using a scented deodorant. When it comes to scent, just do remember, less is more. Keep it light.

Lastly, do spiff up a bit when you’re going on a date. Ladies still love it when a man wears a navy blazer. Sure, you can be casual in the modern age of digital dating and just pair it with an open collar shirt.

If the occasion is a little dressier, then do plan to wear a tie, also. She will love it. If the situation is more casual, a nice and clean tropical print shirt. That is not too colorful can be just fine. It depends on where you live in the country.

 

 

For the Ladies in Their 50s:

 

Ladies, you want to keep some of the same ideas in mind. Do keep your personal grooming standards up.

Some of you may have attracted a first husband in your 20s without having worn any make-up. However, now that you over 50 years old, you likely would benefit from using some light make-up.

Before you head over to the make-up area department, keep it simple and light. First swing by the local drug store.

Try out a light powder foundation paired with a little mascara to enhance your eyes. Do add a little lip color whether it is in a tinted lip gloss or sheer lipstick.

When it comes to how you dress. A cute pair of jeans paired with heels is a fun feminine look. Men still love seeing women wearing a skirt or a dress, so wear those when you can.

Once you’re looking great, you’ll be flirting. With the mature men showing up at the coffee shops and the bagel store for lunch.

Once you’re flirting, go ahead and ask for the date! Now that you’re being attractive after 50, the dates are sure to line up.

What are the mature dating challenges you’re finding? Where do want some help? Chime in the comment section here, and I’ll be sure to address them in future articles.

Aerobic breathing exercises are designed to increase oxygen intake.

 

 

Aerobic Breathing.

by Kathy C. Reid

 

Aerobics is one of the ways to lose weight and reduce the risks of sickness and complications. As a result of obesity and being overweight.

More and more people are now into controlling their weights; because of the hazards that obesity brings to their overall health and well-being.

One of the most common forms of controlling weight these days is the aerobic exercise. It will also improve overall health.

Aerobics could help in pumping more oxygen into the blood vessels. Which can increase metabolism and burn more fat and calories? Aerobics literally means oxygen.

Aerobic exercises are designed to increase oxygen intake. This practice would burn fat and improve health and fitness.

According to studies, about 300.000 adult deaths in the United States can be attributed to the lack of physical activity and unhealthy eating habits.

About two-thirds of adults in the U.S. are overweight, while about one-third of the adult population is obese. Adults are not the only ones suffering from weight problems.

Children and teens with obesity have increased for the last years because of changes in lifestyle.

 

 

Would it be possible then to lose weight just by breathing alone?

 

Breathing is a crucial aspect of different kinds of exercises. In fact, in yoga, breathing properly is important.

Breathing exercises could even remove stress and relax the body and mind. Breathing for weight loss is practiced by several aerobic breathing programs.

Each program would have their own technique and their own advice.

However, it is important to understand that there is no weight loss program or pill that could produce dramatic results overnight.

Obesity and being overweight cannot be resolved by aerobic breathing alone. Of course, proper diet and exercise are still crucial to battle the pounds away.

Although, Aerobic breathing can supplement these weight loss programs to acquire better results.

Most of us would only use about 20% of our lung capacity, while 70% of toxic elimination in our body happens when we breathe.

Aerobic breathing helps our body maximize its potential. By breathing properly for about 20 minutes a day, you can bring drastic results in your health.

 

 

Guiding Principle.

 

The guiding principle is that breathing can cleanse your body. It could help in flushing out waste, toxins, and other pollutants from your body.

Diaphragmatic deep breathing techniques could help in reducing cellulite, improve skin tone, blood circulation, digestion, and even sleep.

With aerobic breathing, all you must do is sit up straight, exhale from the lungs and inhale through the nose.

Breathing should be able to stretch the lungs to its capacity. When exhaling, make sure to force out all the air in the lungs.

Hold breathing for a while and then pull your stomach in. You can do these breathing exercises about 10 to 20 times. Some would prefer doing them before proceeding with any exercise training.

 

 

However, everyone wants to lose weight.

 

But it does not mean that you should start starving yourself and become a slave to exercise machines.

In the end, losing weight would still mean eating fruits, vegetables, and healthy food, exercising regularly, and staying or maintaining a positive outlook of life.

Aerobic exercises such as walking, jogging, swimming, and skiing can be considered the easiest ways to do regular exercises every single day.

However, people who are controlling weight should also seek professional help in doing this exercise. Since it may lead to prolonged hunger, depression, reduced sex drive, fatigue, irritability, fainting, sinus problems, muscle loss, rashes, bloodshot eyes, gallbladder diseases, and loose folds of skin.

Aside from that, special medical cases also prohibit people from engaging in aerobic exercise especially when it is related to certain medical conditions.

Doing Aerobic Training Properly to Improve Health.

by John Sami.

A lot of people nowadays are using various medications and going on crash diets to lose some unwanted pounds and improve their health.

Because of this phenomenon, the benefits of aerobic exercises have been overlooked. Two of the more famous forms of aerobic exercise are running and jogging.

Doing these activities lead to improved physical appearance, healthier heart, and elevated moods.

The primary benefit of this kind of exercise is a healthy heart. The human body responds to the increased need for oxygen that comes with running or jogging.

As aerobic exercise takes place, the circulatory system responds by pushing itself harder which prompts the heart to beat faster.

Just like other muscles in the body that receives a healthy dose of workout, the heart becomes stronger with regular aerobic training.

A stronger heart pumps blood more efficiently and improves blood flow to many parts of the body.

Because of a healthy heart, climbing stairs can be a breeze, and walking or running long distances may less difficult.

One’s body, therefore, becomes more efficient in handling everyday tasks that can be encountered.

 

 

Like other physical activities,

 

Regular aerobic training can give a healthier looking body to individuals who engage in them. For people who work out regularly, the muscles become more toned and leaner because fat is burned off.

In addition to these physical improvements, greater muscle density contributes to bone strength and reduce the risk of breaking bones as one gets older.

Medical studies also add that moderate or intense physical activities may prompt the body to produce substances called endorphins.

These substances are trigger by the brain that may elevate one’s mood and eliminate feelings of stress and anxiety. This effect is called by many health experts as the “runner’s high.”

However, individuals who want to engage in aerobic training should consult health professionals or train with a professional instructor.

Because improper or too much training may do more harm than good. Extreme exercise may increase the production of stress hormones like cortisol, epinephrine, and norepinephrine.

 

 

Hormones.

 

These hormones aid the body in switching to a more efficient fat-burning metabolism. To preserve glycogen in the muscles and aid blood vessels in the delivery of oxygen to the muscles.

However, stress overload can occur if an individual does not dial down the intensity even for short periods.

This may cause an increase in white blood cells that eliminate bacteria, viruses, and even cancer cells.

When intense exercise is finished, the number of immune cells may decrease. It is theorized that any viruses or bacteria present in this stage may multiply and cause infection which may weaken the immune system.

 

 

Aerobic Training.

 

Aerobic training and other physical activities should be done properly to avoid ill-effects that improper or over-training may bring.

Individuals who want to engage in such activities can begin aerobic training; by walking or jogging five minutes in the morning and another five minutes the evening.

The next they can add a few minutes to each aerobic session. Soon, they could be walking briskly or jogging for 30 minutes a day and reap the benefits of regular aerobic exercise.

 

 

Conclusion.

 

Whenever we are including ourselves in aerobics and weight loss programs; setting realistic goals for us to accomplish would make it easier for us and at the same time. Take weight loss according to our own phase.

Finally, Aerobic Breathing may not be the magic beans we’re looking for to look good, but it can help us change into a new person.
