MIMI M SPENCER

T The award-win­ning j jour­nal­ist and au­thor w writes about why s she loves her midlife b body on p77. She l lives in brighton w with her hus­band a and two chil­dren.

✢ If m my self self-es­teem est has taken a bit of a dip… no con­test on this: a trip to the hair­dressers. i go to trevor sor­bie in Brighton, and seem to lose a decade dur­ing the cou­ple of hours i spend there. ✢ My in­stant con­fi­dence-boost­ing trick: i’m a great be­liever in the power of a mantra. chant­ing “om” to your­self can re­ally help you stay calm and fo­cused be­fore a big event.

J JEN­NIFER MOR­GAN w&h’s w homes Edi­tor re­veals r how to sort out o your clut­ter for good g on p151. She lives l in Sur­rey with her hus­band h and three­year-old y daugh­ter.

✢ If my self-es­teem has taken a bit of a dip… i chat to my fam­ily, some­times about what has caused the dip, some­times about com­plete trivia. of­ten a cud­dle from my daugh­ter is enough to re­mind me of what i can do. i’m also try­ing hard to re­mem­ber that yes, while i can do any­thing, i can’t do ev­ery­thing.

✢ My in­stant con­fi­dence-boost­ing trick: Wear­ing some­thing bright and cheer­ful. my favourite red-and-white jumper in­stantly makes me feel less “mumsy”.

WENDY W CAR­RIG

✢ If my self-es­teem has t taken a bit of a dip… i go for a good long walk w with my dog for a boost of fresh air and un­con­di­tional love.

✢ My in­stant con­fi­dence-boost­ing trick: laugh­ter!
