Radical Self Love

Today I am reading about body acceptance and self love.  The search term I used on google "celebrate your body" which lead me to a book on puberty but at the bottom of that page was a link to this place. After reading the introduction I decided I wanted to know more about this subject so I clicked the link to their main web site.

While I love their logo and introduction once I got to the web site I was less impressed. There are a great many useful articles but to get access to anything else requires you pay a fee so I went back to my original search and began again.

Sadly I actually had to go to page 2 of the search before I could find anything of interest. For some reason that book on puberty had the whole first page to itself. Anyway ...

I found Gala Darling and decided to take a look at what she had. I found an article called "How to Practice Major Mega Supreme Body Love ... Daily" that actually made some important points to help foster a positive body image.

Her first point is the most important thing to do if you have body issues. It's simple to stop buying and reading those magazines and web sites which talk about weight. You are likely to be more relaxed and comfortable in your own skin if you stop being bombarded by all that negative talk.

Another point she made that I also think is very important is to actually stand naked in front of a mirror and say out loud that you love yourself and give yourself compliments. You may feel silly at first but that will go away. BTW look yourself in the eyes when you do it that way the message will really be heard and absorbed into your mind.

I think if you follow those two prescriptions you will become more comfortable in your own body and it will stop mattering so much what the media says.

I went to Amazon and found both Radical Self Love and The Body Is Not An Apology which I am thinking about buying but first I think I want to learn more about Emotional freedom technique (EFT)

Do not apologize for your body stand tall and proud!

National Make a Friend Day

I am not very good at making friends or keeping them it seems. I do not go outside much, in fact I hardly leave my home unless it is family related. That makes it hard especially since friends expect you to come to them at least once in a while and I find I can't. If it were simply a matter of laziness it would be understandable but it isn't. Some days I can't even open the door to let in some fresh air. I do not know where the fear comes from I just know that that is what I feel when I think about going outside most of the time. Agoraphobia: Triggers for this anxiety may include wide-open spaces, crowds (social anxiety), or traveling (even short distances). Agoraphobia is often, but not always, compounded by a  fear  of social embarrassment, as the agoraphobic  fears  the onset of a panic attack and appearing distraught in public. Causes: Genetic and environmental factors Symptoms: Anxiety in situations perceived to be unsafe, panic attacks Treatment:

My Fair Lady

Eliza Doolittle Day is celebrated by fans of the musical  My Fair Lady , a musical based off of George Bernard Shaw's 1912 play  Pygmalion . In the musical, Eliza Doolittle is a  Cockney  flower girl who wants to learn to speak properly. At the time the story takes place, proper speech was a symbol of upward mobility and education. Eliza meets Professor Henry Higgins in  Covent Garden  and he agrees to give her  elocution  lessons. Higgins believes he can transform her from someone who uses words like "ain't" to someone who can fit in with London's elite. In the musical, Eliza dreams of meeting the king. She sings a song, "Just You Wait," to share her thoughts. It is in the song that the date for Eliza Doolittle Day comes from: One day I’ll be famous! I’ll be proper and prim; Go to St. James so often I will call it St. Jim! One evening the king will say: 'Oh, Liza, old thing, I want all of England your praises to sing. Next week on the twentieth of M

Emotional Intelligence - What it is?

 F or those unfamiliar, emotional intelligence is a self-governing initiative to make healthy assessments about how our minds influence quality   behaviour . Such assessments help us to better understand our minds and reduce emotions harmful, yet natural effect on our thoughts and   behaviour . Like the sensory systems, the emotional coping mechanisms you have are not good or bad mostly they just need retuning or at least mine does. Over the next 4 weeks, I'll be looking into each section of Emotional Intelligence and sharing what I find with you. Self-Awareness: The core of Emotional Intelligence is self-awareness. Self-awareness is comprised of three competencies; emotional self-awareness, where you are able to read and understand your emotions as well as recognise their impact on work performance and relationships; accurate self-assessment, where you are able to give a realistic evaluation of your strengths and limitations; self-confidence, where you have a positive and strong s
