How to Teach Your Teen Body Positivity

*Collaborative Post

We live in a world that’s very image conscious. You’ve only got to look at fashion magazines to realise how unrealistic standards of beauty have become. When you’re a teen, switching off from feeling pressured to always look good can be difficult. Teens are forced to take part in many different social occasions, and at times it can be very distressing for them. It is, however, possible for you as a parent to teach your teen about body positivity, thereby developing a healthy habit for life. Continue reading “How to Teach Your Teen Body Positivity”

Our Bodies Know How To Test Us!

*Collaborative Post

Sometimes our bodies are kind to us, sometimes they just know how to test us. For example ladies, all of those times where you have a date on the weekend, or you have the perfect girls night out planned, and boom!! Your skin breaks out in spots like never before. As minor as this may be, it definitely does leave us cursing our bodies. But as we say, that’s just a minor event compared to the trouble our bodies really can put us through from time to time. Which is why we think that it’s important you know how your body can test you, and how you can withstand such tests. Now is the time of year where you definitely don’t want your body to test you as well. As much as possible, you should try and ensure that you’re in full health all of the time! Here are some of the tops ways we think our bodies test us, and how you can deal with it asap so that you don’t feel like your life is over! Continue reading “Our Bodies Know How To Test Us!”

Health Improvements You Could Make For The Sake Of Your Future

*Collaborative Post

Being healthy sounds like an optional lifestyle, but it’s something that should be a priority in everybody’s life. You shouldn’t just eat well if you’re trying to lose weight, and you shouldn’t just exercise if you want to fit in a new shirt. These reasons might be motivation for such health improvements, but the main reason to look after your health is to ensure that you have a happy future. You need to think about the big picture. A balanced diet, a regular exercise routine, a better sleeping pattern, and many other health improvements that we’ll discuss in this article are all changes that will improve your body and mind. Let’s talk about some health improvements you could make for the sake of your future. Continue reading “Health Improvements You Could Make For The Sake Of Your Future”

I wrote a post a little while ago about postpartum bodies but little did I realise that the effects continue on far longer and some areas you don’t even seem to notice until it’s too late! Oh, and it’s not only limited to us Mums… which kinda makes me smile. Yes, Dads, you are also affected by the lack of sleep, stress, exhaustion and restricted ‘me time’.

6 Things No One Tells You About Your Postpartum Body

You may have had a rough ride during pregnancy and then you have either squeezed a little person out of your lady area or been cut open and you are thinking that’s your body done with all the changes and miracle working for one year… but very few people will go on and talk to you about the changes which continue to happen to your postpartum body – most probably because they don’t want to put you off any further! We need to be open about these issues though because I had no idea that my body would continue to give me grief and I have had to find advice and tips as they have happened to me.
