Hi beautiful people!
Thank you for popping in to my blog. You’re probably wondering who I am, so let me fill you in on the story that is me. I’m a 50 year old mum of three, and have had a keen interest in how to remain ‘ever young’ for about the past 10 years.
I have lived most of my life on the gorgeous Gold Coast in sunny Queensland which has instilled in me a love for the outdoors, and keeping fit and healthy.
My pending mortality really hit home though when I recently turned 50. I thought – I’ve already lived half my life! I must admit, I had a minor meltdown but quickly focused on turning it into a mid life renewal. More on that in my first blog here.
I want to make damn well sure that my next fifty are going to be equally filled with adventures, good health and fun times – and the only way to enjoy life well, is to ensure we remain healthy and age well – right?
I put my journalist cap on and started researching the biohacking world. What I found was that there weren’t a lot of women out there focused on ensuring they remain healthy from the inside out when it comes to anti ageing. The focus was predominantly on the outside – our skin, our hair etc. and dieting. It seemed to be a space dominated by men (what else is new!) and while the tips from the likes of the awesome Ben Greenfield and super legend Tony Robbins are applicable to both sexes, I wanted to explore whether the ‘feminine way’ required a different path.
I’m going to use my journalism, academic and corporate consultancy experience and skills to investigate the latest advances in tackling ageing and facilitating longevity. I’ll bring this information to you here on my blog and break it down in simple, easy to understand terms; taking the hard work out for you. I’ll also become a human guinea pig and will be trialling the latest biohacking products. My hope is that you will join me on this journey of how to remain ever young; to create a space where we share ideas and new findings well into our centenary years!
I want to be clear that I’m not a medical expert nor do I come from a scientific background. My opinions, reviews and experiences are based on me undertaking detailed research and trialling products or activities. What I do bring is the every day person’s perspective on biohacking based on my own journey.
