20 Things to Remember When Society Says You Aren’t Bikini Ready

20 Things to Remember When Society Says You Aren’t Bikini Ready

Yes, it’s that time again, and with summer comes societies constant reminders that you are not bikini ready.

Did you not stick to your new year’s resolution about hitting the gym?

Have you had a few too many ‘Netflix and Cheesecake’ evenings?

Did it just not cross your mind until the weather become warmer?

Whatever it is, summer and the holidays are here again.

So that means (in society eyes) “focus on being insecure, we want to fat shame you!”

But although you are being constantly pumped with these awful messages you are also responsible. “How, why, what!?” I hear you scream but like it or not, you are.

You are the one in control of your mind and internal environment, so when outside messages upset and annoy you, it’s an indication that you are out-of-control from your internal environment.

Advertisers know this and they know that people who have no control over their internal environment are heavily affected by the environment that surrounds them.

Hence the reason why phrases like ‘fat shaming’, ‘body shaming’, ‘beach ready’ even exist. These phrases stem from negative situations that the individual has failed to control within themselves.

So, what are you and your extra body bits supposed to do?

                                          I know that a few images with uplifting words is only the tip of the iceberg when you don’t feel that your body is bikini ready.

                                          You need to know how to use these messages too so it makes a difference in your life. What you need to break through is your subconscious mind and the messages it’s secretly telling you. You can do this by replacing the repeated messages it already has, with messages you actually want inside your mind.

                                          1. Start by choosing 1 or 2 of the messages from above that resonate with you.
                                          2. Repeat this message to yourself several times first thing in the morning and last thing before you go to sleep (10-20 times).
                                          3. Write it down repeatedly every day. The more the better (minimum 10 times a day)
                                          4. Look in the mirror and repeat your special message to yourself whilst looking at the parts of your body you hate
                                          5. HIGHLY IMPORTANT: Without this last step none of this will work for you. If you do not use #6 you are wasting your time!
                                          6. Before you repeat any words or write anything down it is crucial to get yourself into a real state of ‘feeling’ of achievement. Take 2 – 5 minutes and close your eyes, breath slowly and feel that you already achieved the goal you want, which is self acceptance. Feel that you have already accepted you amazing body, know that you are one of those body confident people. Fill your body with the happy feeling that self loving people truly feel.

                                          So, if you were worried about those extra jiggle bits you need to accept that they are part of your beautiful body. Have you ever considered that the more you try to alter your natural state the more you are subliminally telling yourself that you are not good enough?

                                          This painful ‘hamster wheel’ cycle only keeps you in a state of unhappiness. What’s life without happiness?

                                          Accept and love yourself because you are 1 in 7 billion. Being 1 in 7 billion should be a sign that we were not designed to look, act, or be like anyone else which is why you only find sadness when you try to do so.

                                          Thanks for reading.

                                          How to Flow Your Way to a More Productive Life

                                          How to Flow Your Way to a More Productive Life

                                          Ebb and flow. Contraction and expansion. Highs and lows. It’s all about the cycles of life.

                                          The entire course of our life follows this up and down pattern of more and then less. Our days flow this way, each following a pattern of more energy, then less energy, more creativity and periods of greater focus bookended by moments of low energy when we cringe at the thought of one more meeting, one more call, one more sentence.

                                          The key is in understanding how to use the cycles of ebb and flow to our advantage. The ability to harness these fluctuations, understand how they affect our productivity and mood and then apply that knowledge as a tool to improve our lives is a valuable strategy that few individuals or corporations have mastered.

                                          Here are a few simple steps to start using this strategy today:

                                          Advertising

                                          Review Your Past Flow

                                          Take just a few minutes to look back at how your days and weeks have been unfolding. What time of the day are you the most focused? Do you prefer to be more social at certain times of the day? Do you have difficulty concentrating after lunch or are you energized? Are there days when you can’t seem to sit still at your desk and others when you could work on the same project for hours?

                                          Do you see a pattern starting to emerge? Eventually you will discover a sort of map or schedule that charts your individual productivity levels during a given day or week.  That’s the first step. You’ll use this information to plan your days going forward.

                                          Schedule According to Your Flow Pattern

                                          Look at the types of things you do each day…each week. What can you move around so that it’s a better fit for you? Can you suggest to your team that you schedule meetings for late morning if you can’t stand to be social first thing? Can you schedule detailed project work or highly creative tasks, like writing or designing when you are best able to focus? How about making sales calls or client meetings on days when you are the most social and leaving billing or reports until another time when you are able to close your door and do repetitive tasks.

                                          Keep in mind that everyone is different and some things are out of our control. Do what you can. You might be surprised at just how flexible clients and managers can be when they understand that improving your productivity will result in better outcomes for them.

                                          Account for Big Picture Fluctuations

                                          Look at the bigger picture. Consider what happens during different months or times during the year. Think about what is going on in the other parts of your life. When is the best time for you to take on a new project, role or responsibility? Take into account other commitments that zap your energy. Do you have a sick parent, a spouse who travels all the time or young children who demand all of your available time and energy?

                                          We all know people who ignore all of this advice and yet seem to prosper and achieve wonderful success anyway, but they are usually the exception, not the rule. For most of us, this habitual tendency to force our bodies and our brains into patterns of working that undermine our productivity result in achieving less than desired results and adding more stress to our already overburdened lives.

                                          Why not follow the ebb and flow of your life instead of fighting against it?
