Get Healthy The Right Way With Self-Care

When it comes to your health, it’s easy to put it on the back-burner. There are so many things to get done in a single day that taking time for yourself can get lost under the mountain of your daily tasks. The more we push our basic needs to the back of our priority list the more often we are to find ourselves sick, depressed, or suffering from emotional fatigue. By the time we start realizing the effect that neglecting our needs is having on our mental and physical health – we’re so exhausted that it’s hard to just bounce back. Here are four things we get wrong when it comes to our health. Not Incorporating A Balanced Lifestyle Into Daily Routines   Some people start on their journey to a healthy lifestyle, and think that they have to do everything 100% perfect.

Confession: I Struggle With Emotional Eating

“Emotional eating is the practice of consuming food — usually “comfort” or junk foods — in response to feelings instead of hunger.” My name is Dominee and I like to eat when I feel things I don’t want to feel. I eat more when I am stressed. I eat more when I am depressed. And when I am anxious. When I am angry. I eat more when I am lacking inspiration.

Body Love Songs: Body Boosting Jams

Is it just me or has there been some really amazing body positive music coming out lately? Not just inspiring lyrics but videos that really showcase different body types? It’s bad-ass and it makes me so happy to live in a world that is embracing all types of bodies and body acceptance. It’s so re-affirming to see different bodies represented in the media. I remember the first time I saw someone with my body type on tv as a teen, it’s sad that it sticks out isn’t it? We still have a ways to go. I would love more emphasis on all body types being equally worthy and sexy but the fact that body inclusivity is part of the conversation is great. Hopefully, one day we can all look at each other, as women, and not see how we are “supposed” to be, but instead, see how we are and…

Body Love Boosters: A Guest Post From Danielle Yeager

Without further ado, here’s a post from the lovely Danielle Yeager. Most of us experienced a love-hate relationship with our bodies throughout our life. You started out not even thinking about your body; you just used it. Learned how to move, to run, to jump, and to play with your body’s help. Then you started to feel awkward in your own body. It changed and continues to change as you have gotten older. You became more aware of what you look like and, more importantly, how you feel about what you look like. Looked at another’s body and judged them for being too fat or too skinny, too short or too tall, but mostly you were judging yourself. You started hiding your body, avoiding clothing that showed your insecurities. But you do know what it feels like to love your body. You have looked in the mirror on a good…
