What’s your ‘spirit age’? By that I mean the age you feel, not your chronological age. It’s a topic we’re looking at this month in our Secrets to a Younger You (p16) feature. The writer, in one of her tips, suggests channelling Helen Mirren and other realistic role models, rather than someone such as Madonna, who does her utmost to halt time. But I disagree, as I think: why not look to Madonna for inspiration? I am a lifelong fan though so am biased. I’ve just listened to her new album (and loved it; I have them all). She’s 61 in August, still making incredible music and looks great. A lot of people think she ought to ‘act her age’ but why should we succumb to what society thinks we…

your healthy july

CHOCS AWAY! While it might seem an odd choice for the summer months, July 7 is International Chocolate Day. Melty as it might be, we’re not ones to shy away from the sweet stuff – and it turns out that picking the right type might give your health a boost into the bargain. Two American studies last year found that eating chocolate with a minimum 70 per cent cocoa can be a powerful inflammation fighter, as well as reducing stress and lifting mood. For a cacao hit the healthier way, try PlayinChoc (£2.95, Each dinky box contains five individually wrapped 10g bars, made only of cocoa beans, coconut and vanilla, making them vegan too.

the secrets to a younger you

ACTRESS AND model Christie Brinkley recently had her 65th birthday – but instead of celebrating that actual number, she called it her 15th 50th birthday, in recognition of the fact she feels no older than 50. This, she says, is her ‘spirit age’, which is nothing to do with how old she might be chronologically. And this is an idea we love, at Top Santé as thinking this way has been proven to turn back the clock. Most of us already have a ‘spirit age’. Studies on ageing find most people feel 15 per cent younger than they are. In recent years, researchers examining the science of ageing have found that the more positive we feel about getting older, the more slowly it happens. People who think they are younger than they…
