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.

                                          If you know someone who would make use of these body booster tips, then you can make a difference today.

                                          5 Simple Ways to Relieve Stress Effectively

                                          5 Simple Ways to Relieve Stress Effectively

                                          Everyone experiences mental stress at one time or another. Maybe you’re starting a new career, job, or business, or you feel incredibly overwhelmed between work, parenting, and your love life (or a lack of it). It could even be that you simply feel that you have way too much to do and not enough time to do it,  plus, on top of everything, nothing seems to be going the way it should!

                                          Yup, we all experience mental stress from time-to-time, and that’s okay as long as you have the tools, techniques and knowledge that allow you to fully relieve it once it comes.

                                          Here are 5 tips for relieving mental stress when it comes so you can function at your best while feeling good (and doing well) in work, love, or life:

                                          1. Get Rationally Optimistic

                                          Mental stress starts with your perception of your experiences. For instance, most people get stressed out when they perceive their reality as “being wrong” in some way. Essentially, they have a set idea of how things “should be” at any given moment, and when reality ends up being different (not even necessarily bad), they get stressed.

                                          Advertising

                                          This process is simply a result of perception and can be easily “fixed” by recognizing that although life might not always be going as YOU think it should, it’s still going as it should—for your own benefit.

                                          In fact, once you fully recognize that everything in your life ultimately happens for your own growth, progress, and development—so you can achieve your goals and dreams—your perception works in your favor. You soon process and respond to your experience of life differently, for your advantage. That’s the essence of becoming “rationally optimistic.”

                                          The result: no more mental stress.

                                          2. Unplug

                                          Just like you might need to unplug your computer when it starts acting all crazy, you should also “unplug” your mind.

                                          Advertising

                                          How on earth do you unplug your mind? Simple: just meditate.

                                          It isn’t nearly difficult or complicated as some people think, so, if you don’t already meditate, give it a try. Whether you meditate for 5 minutes, 30 minutes, or 2 hours, this is a surefire way to reduce mental stress.

                                          Meditation has been scientifically proven to relax your body (resulting in less mental stress), while also reducing anxiety and high blood pressure.

                                          3. Easy on the Caffeine

                                          Yes, we know, we know—everyone loves a nice java buzz, and that’s okay, but there’s a fine line between a small caffeine pick-me-up and a racing heart and mind that throws you into a frenzy of mental stress.

                                          Advertising

                                          Try giving up caffeine for a while and see how you feel. And, if that’s completely out of the question for you, at least try to minimize it. You might find that lots of your mental stress mysteriously “disappears” as your caffeine intake goes down.

                                          4. Attack Mental Stress Via the Back Door

                                          That’s right: your body and mind are part of the whole being, and are constantly influencing and affecting each other. If you’re experiencing a lot of mental stress, try to reduce it by calming your body down—a calm body equals a calmer mind.

                                          How do you calm your body down and reduce physical stress? A  great way to reduce physical stress (thereby reducing mental stress) is to take natural supplements that are proven to reduce stress and anxiety while lifting your mood. Three good ones to look into are kava-kava, St John’s wort, and rhodiola rosea:

                                          • Kava-kava is a natural plant known to have mild sedative properties, and you should be able to find it at your natural health food store or vitamin store. It’s available in capsules or liquid extract form.
                                          • St John’s wort is a natural flower used to treat depression. Again, it’s found at your local health store in capsules or liquid. Because it uplifts mood (enabling you to see the brighter side of all experiences) it helps relieve mental stress as well.
                                          • Rhodiola rosea is a natural plant shown to reduce stress and uplift mood, and Russian athletes have been using it forever. Like the other two supplements mentioned, rhodiola rosea can be found at your natural health store in capsule or liquid form.

                                          While these supplements are all natural and can be very helpful for most people, always check with your health care provider first as they can cause side-effects depending on your current health situation etc.

                                          5. Good Old-Fashioned Exercise

                                          This tip has been around forever because it works. Nothing relieves mental stress like running, kickboxing—you name it. Anything super-physical will wipe out most of your mental stresses once the exercise endorphins (happy chemicals) are released into your brain.

                                          The result: mental stress will be gone!

                                          So, if you’re feeling overwhelmed or just plain stressed, try using some of the above tips. You can even print this out or save it to refer to regularly.

                                          More to Help You Feel Relaxed
