live life well!

One of the best things about gaining experience in life is knowing what you want out of it, and what you're not prepared to put up with. It's also about realising your worth, and having a clear perspective that you deserve respect. 'The greatest achievement is knowing who you are' On page 8, our cover star this month, TV presenter and fitness guru Davina McCall, talks about how grown-up women now garner a different kind of respect. For too long women felt they became invisible and ignored when they reached their 40s and 50s – these days it seems they're only just hitting their stride, and getting started on the best part of life. Midlife women are really having a seminal time in the world right now, achieving great successes and taking centre…

BELINDA DOS SANTOS, a freelance writer, contributed to our article on page 100. What do you love about autumn? I really like how the cooler weather seems to have a calming effect on everyone. * My definition of being strong?

davina ‘women in their 50s are now given a very different type of respect’

It’s been almost 20 years since Davina McCall landed her first major gig as a presenter, and we’ve since seen her at the helm of shows like Long Lost Family and This Time Next Year. She’s also made a name for herself in the fitness industry, with 14 workout DVDs and several healthy recipe books. It’s why hers has become a household name. And, after years in the public eye, Davina says she’s now landed in a very good place. If fans or viewers approach her, it’s simply to have a nice chat. And, like her followers, the years have also been incredibly kind to Davina, now 52, whose age-defying looks can be attributed to her enviable youthful vigour – and being happy. Happiness is something she places great importance on these days.…

how to always find a silver lining

We all know how it feels when things go pear-shaped because we’re human, not computer chips. From doomed relationships and disastrous interviews to spilling coffee over a freshly washed shirt, it’s easy for a sense of shame to take hold. Yet, in the words of Breakfast at Tiffany’s author Truman Capote, “Failure is the condiment that gives success its flavour.” So channel your inner Holly Golightly – there’s more to be learnt from mess-ups than clear rounds. 1 OWN YOUR TRUTH There’s no glossing over the fact that love hurts and hearts ache when it ends. As well as the relationship as you knew it, you’re losing the illusion that perfect partnerships exist. But no long-standing couple should feel their years together were a failure, when there was kindness, support, laughter, and…
