Body Image Involves Our Perception

Body image involves our perception, imagination, emotions, and physical sensations of and about our bodies. It s not static-but ever changing; sensitive to changes in mood, environment, and physical experience. It is not based on fact. It is psychological in nature, and much more influenced by self-esteem than by actual physical attractiveness as judged by others. It is not inborn, but learned. We all may have our days when we feel awkward or uncomfortable in our bodies, but the key to developing positive body image is to recognize and...

When you don’t have clear and healthy boundaries set in place other people will step over the line without realizing it. It is important that you honor...

Connecting With Nature Inspires Happiness!

Being outside in nature inspires feelings of awe and wonder and acquaints us with our higher self. ~ Gena Livings Our lives are so scheduled today that we seldom have a moment to collect our thoughts.  Between the demands of work, family, and social activities, little time remains for personal contemplation and connecting with our true spirit.  And, even when free moments do arise, we often fill the time with television, or the internet.  There is nothing necessarily wrong with these activities, but they can rob us of a great treasure by...
