Positive Body Image Inspiration

Too long have we been told by the media that our bodies are not right, they aren't beautiful and they aren't aesthetically pleasing, this is a big middle finger to body shame.

I have struggled with my body image for a long time. Luckily I received counseling and I feel great in my body but my feelings of insecurity come up when I feel stressed, angry, or any negative emotion. I usually turn to food to numb these emotions and then I feel really fat and gross. I am facing a lot of stress this Fall and I am worried that my body insecurity will spiral out of control. I really need help! Oh I discovered your blog recently and I think it's great.

Sorry for taking so long to get back to you, love!

These negative feelings your having from time to time are perfectly normal. We all have bad days where we feel bad about ourselves. The important thing that you need to remember about these days is that they will end and you will be able to get back to your regular self soon.
Practice self love and self care during those days - have a nice hot bath, treat yourself to a nice lunch or just unwind with some time with yourself and read a good book.
Also remember that you need to eat to survive and that eating is not a bad thing at all. A lot of people do turn to food when they are stressed out, but if you want to steer clear of snack foods and sweets, make yourself up some yummy more healthy snacks like yogurt and muesli, carrot and celery sticks and a seasonal fruit salad. That way, you bypass those negative feelings that may plague you once you have eaten, because you’re eating yummy healthy stuff.
If you really want to get a sugar fix, treat yourself and get a chocolate bar or a cupcake. There’s nothing wrong with that :)
If you are still struggling with this sort of thing, I think it might be beneficial for you to go back and speak to your counselor to gain some more advice on the matter.

I hope this has helped :)
Take care, sweetling.

I think this would be a really really great post to put on your blog!! I saw it on my newsfeed and I almost immediately thought it’d be great to see on your blog because the video is about how words like “fat” and “chubby” are seen as insults and “skinny” and “thin” are seen as compliments, but they shouldn’t be! They’re all just words that describe body types, and shouldn’t be negative or positive - and yet people still tell fat people that they’re “so skinny” to make them feel better, when instead that really just makes us feel worse. This is a really on point video. I hope you post it!!

It seems like this blog is mainly geared towards women. If a guy came to you with body image issues, would that be okay? (Since I'm a guy who's been heavy all his life and I hate it.) Or would you rather keep this blog just for women?

Seizure First Aid. 

Learn it. Share it. Know it. Use it. 

100% correct medical information on tumblr for once; also consider calling 911 if you don’t know how often the person has seizures and ESPECIALLY if the seizure has lasted 5 minutes or more (which is why the watch is critical)

reblogging this again with the helpful note that this seems to be about seizures of the Grand Mal sort.  There are a lot of different kinds of seizures, not just ones where the person convulses, etc.  Absent seizures are also a thing, and they were the ones I used to have.  They can present themselves in a couple different ways, so if you do have loved one/friend/partner/etc who is affected by seizures other than Grand Mal, its worth asking about or looking up information on~!

As an epileptic, this is really helpful. So many people are uneducated in what to do in the event of a seizure, which is quite alarming given that epilepsy is very common.
Please remember these steps, the could save a life.
