Can you believe Dublin-born TV presenter Amanda Byram is 41? Nope, us either. The Total Recall host is looking AMAZEBALLS, and it seems she’s feeling great too.

Here are 41 things Amanda says she has learned about life..


  1. We all get old someday. Looks fade. Bodies wither. It’s what’s on the inside that TRULY counts.
  2. Never let anyone dull your sparkle
  3. Life is too short to spend with people who suck your energy.
  4. Eat raw when you can – ditch the microwaves
  5. Don’t be afraid to live your dreams.
  6. Try not to let alcohol be your crutch in a room full of people.
  7. Be yourself. Everyone else is taken.
  8. Don’t be afraid to take risks.
  9. Don’t stress the little things.
  10. Your opinion matters. Trust yourself ALWAYS.
  11. If you don’t like something, change it.
  12. Stop asking others what they think.
  13. Travel often. It is the path to knowledge and experience.
  14. You won’t lie on your death bed wishing you had worked more. Take time off.
  15. Diets and quick fixes don’t work. Lifestyles do!
  16. We are responsible for our planet. Try to go green.
  17. Don’t assume that supermarkets only sell you the good stuff. They are there to make money.
  18. Be your own nutritionist. Be responsible for your own health.
  19. Too much of anything is a bad thing. A little bit of everything is a good thing.
  20. Alcohol leads to a foggy brain. It puts your life on hold.
  21. TV, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram take up too much of our time.
  22. Learn new things. Make a bucket list. And stick to it.
  23. In my teens and 20’s I thought i was invincible. Now I know i have to be mindful of what I do with my life and my health.

  31. Cherish good friends.
  32. Nothing comes easy. You have to work for it. But the reward is worth it.

  38. Stop over analysing. Life is pretty simple.
