Suppressing your emotions is bad. Acknowledging them is good.

"Making a decision to have a child - it's momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body"

- writer Elizabeth Stone

What happened when the Girls Who Had It All became mothers? A new book explores why this generation feels so insane

First Paragraph:
"Feb. 21 issue - Back in the days when I was a Good Mommy, I tried to do everything right. I breast-fed and co-slept, and responded to each and every cry with anxious alacrity. I awoke with my daughter at 6:30 AM and, eschewing TV, curled up on the couch with a stack of books that I could recite in my sleep. I did this, in fact, many times, jerking myself back awake as the clock rounded 6:45 and the words of Curious George started to merge with my dreams."

A bit late but the idea still applies.

"We spend January 1 Walk though our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk though the rooms of our lives . . . not looking for flaws, but for potential."

-Ellen Goodman, Pulitzer prize-winning Journalist.

Bad rap [Aug. 20th, 2004|02:38 am]

It seems like Peanut butter and milk get a bad rap. They are both good for you, yet people call them too fattening and stop eating them. I don't know if this is an american thing but it seems every third commercial is about woman needing to get enough calcium to fight osteoporosis, instead of popping a pill drink milk. It isn't fattening if you do something to burn it off and it is better for you then soda.

Peanut butter has a lot protein in it that provides long term energy instead of a sugar rush. A peanut butter sandwich is a whole lot better for you then a big mac.

Remember calories = energy. Energy means you can stay active, activity burns off the unhealthy fat, and builds muscle tone.

Eat well, enjoy your food, be active, have fun.

btw: Simply Orange, orange juice is the greatest ever, not from concentrate no sugar added, and it taste great.

- Don't beat yourself up for how you are feeling, feelings are not rational.

- If you have thoughts spinning around in your head try free writing. Just write down what you are thinking, without editing, worrying about spelling, or punctuation. If is your choice on if you want to read it or not. Sometimes just writing it down can help you sort yourself out.

- When you are feeling down, or stress out sometimes without thinking about it we can start skipping out on are normal grooming habits. Take a nice long bath or some other self nurturing activity.

- Turn the music up, dance around or sing loudly.

The Obesity Myth [Aug. 4th, 2004|08:01 pm]

[mood |blahblah]

I have started reading The Obesity Myth, and it is really good, supported by the facts and gives some scary facts. How the FDA listens to testimony mainly give by people that make there living off helping people lose weight. More people thinking they need to lose weight = more money in there pockets. These people are the ones that told the FDA panel that the risks of taking Dexfenfluramine (fen-phen) where exceptable because it would help lose weight. When the facts where the drug would only help the person taking it lose about seven pounds more then without it.

The book is targeted to an American audience but I think it could be aclable to anyone living in the western culture.

Sometimes we all feel down, depressed, or anxiety. I though I would post some tips that I have found effective or that other people have told me helps them. I will try to do this at least once a week.

-Write down a goal after you get up in the morning, start out with something really simple like going out side and watching the birds or clouds.

-Find an outlet for your emotions: writing, drawing, painting, journaling. The writing or journaling doesn't have to be a long narrative, just record your emotions and some your thoughts.

-Write down something you like about yourself.

-Stop watching the news. We didn't always have 24/7 news reports and we aren't the better for having it now. It increases stress, worry, and anxiety. If you must watch the news do it once a day and only the local broadcast.

-Blow bubbles no I am not kidding, or finger paint, or go to a toystore by yourself a new toy take it home and play with it.
