Comment from You're Already Perfect ❣️:


After a huge family crisis/breakdown at 14 I had lost all sense of self worth. None of it was controllable (on my end) but somehow it lead me to believe that if I just LOST WEIGHT I would be lovable and deserving. The family crap happened, and it's over and was so within a couple of years. But the body image stuff? It lasted 14 years. For 14 years I believed i was of less value to the world because I wasn't small enough. Why are we teaching females to be small? Why are we teaching our teenagers that what they look like will influence how much they are loved? Where on earth does appearance and self worth intersect? Why do we think that as women, our power to change things will be increased by how attractive we are? Why does our value depend on our weight? I guess that's where the root cause of my motivation for helping other women comes from - I don't want another female to think somehow she will be more lovable if she's small, more valuable because she's thin. Because it's bull shit. Our value comes from the fact we are all miracles and we are all here - that's what makes you valuable, the fact that from the moment you are born you are alive. And as soon as you are born you are powerful and valuable and deserving, no matter what happens to you along the way, and certainly no matter what you look like ✌🏼💜

This is KEY! It's so hard with social media because you see an image on the right captioned with something inspiring, maybe something about loving your body, etc and you wonder how the hell they manage to look like that when you can't stick to your diet for more than 3 weeks. But you don't recognise all this stuff on the left is going on, and most people won't admit that it is (thanks @damnthediets for your honesty!). Often they're selling an ebook or online coaching so they have to pretend they're happy, because that's what sells the goods - the idea that having that body will make you happier, healthier. But it doesn't! So next time you see this sort of image remember these things. Sure, there may be some who are not struggling but let's be honest, most female bodies don't want to get that low body fat and won't do it easily/healthily. Don't believe everything on social media, don't accept images at face value and always, always question what's going on. Most of all, question what it would be like for YOU to be that lean, I know the price id pay and it's not worth it in a million years!

Something so many people struggle with when learning to eat intuitively is the idea that you have to always eat for "health". Intuitive eating doesn't ignore health, but it comes right at the end, once you've fully given yourself permission to eat all foods and you're comfortably and easily eating according to your hunger and Fullness. Why? Because just like focusing on weight loss, focusing on health will undermine your ability to eat intuitively - because our idea of health is externally constructed. I found that when I learned to eat mindfully I naturally gravitated towards healthy foods eventually, but you just can't focus on that to start. So forget about health from food now. Nourish yourself in other ways: spend time in the sun, drink 2-3L of water a day, sleep 8+ h a night, exercise because it feels good but make time for yoga and stretching too, meditate for your mind health and read interesting and challenging things for your brain health, see friends for social health and go on adventures (just because). Health is NOT just your food. Being a lunatic because you can't measure your brocolli and chicken and have to lock yourself inside your own house so you can control the food around you isn't healthy! So go outside, eat an ice cream, have wine with friends and in the mean time, forget about nutrients in food 👌

Let's close tonight with this ode to the frail equilibrium in everything in life. The importance to know to read between the lines, the said and the unsaid, the grey lines... because not many things are black and white. And there is no white without black or 1 without 0 or night without day or light without darkness... because without the opposites we wouldn't be able to recognize them for what they are. So the way to happiness probably is hidden "somewhere in between". katebush somewhereinbetween aerial askyofhoney equilibrium themiddleway listentonature learnfromnature opposites awayoflife blackandwhite wisdom listenandlearn

Perception is everything! How you interpret your world is entirely unique, and entirely up to you! We can choose to only find the bad in things, but we can equally choose to find the good. We can choose to think of everything that could go wrong, or everything that could go right. We could think of all that we don't have, or all that we do. We could dissect our bodies for all of their faults, or celebrate them for all the great things they can do. So when you're feeling shit about yourself ask "which lenses am I looking through?" and perhaps put on a different pair ✌🏼📸 @revelatori

In 2006 I went to Holland to nanny, and while I was there went on my usual extreme diet/exercise regime. I got to a very small size and bought some yellow shorts. James then came over and we ate our way through the final 6 weeks and needless to say I gained all the weight back. It was only at the end of last year that I found them in my cupboard, those yellow shorts, waiting for the day I'd fit back into them and decided to throw them out. In those 10 years they sat in my cupboard they never once again even fit over the top of my thigh but they were a constant reminder that I was "too big". Throwing them out was hard, but holding onto them, really, is much harder. Keeping clothes that do not fit is not motivating, feeling GOOD is the best motivation you can find, and that only happens when you treat yourself like a queen exactly as you are right now👸💁🏼

As Bruce Lee so famously said, courage is not the absence of fear, it is the ability to act in the presence of it. Letting go can be the scariest thing of all - falling into the unknown. For me, allowing myself to be vulnerable by letting go of the mask I wore was so hard. I had built up this "i don't need anyone" attitude to protect myself from being hurt, but it was also preventing me from growing and being supported. Opening up, admitting to myself I wasn't perfect and talking to others about my struggles was awful and liberating at the same time. It took a while but I finally realised that strength wasn't holding it in and pretending things were okay, strength was actually letting it go and admitting I wasn't okay at all. We are so addicted to control that we're preventing ourselves from exploring the most beautiful path of all - the wild unknown! Take a moment to pause today and think about what it is you could let go of 💫

Phuket's Big Buddha is one of the island's most important and revered landmarks on the island. The huge image sits on top of the Nakkerd Hills between Chalong and Kata and, at 45 metres tall, it is easily seen from far away. Close up to the image itself, it is very peaceful and the only noises you will hear are the tinkling of small bells and the yellow Buddhist flags in the compound flapping in the wind, with soft background dharma music. travel travelphotography traveltheworld thailand bigbuddha phuket bigbuddhaphuket buddha statue smile smilingbuddha themiddleway lookingdown blessing peace art design religion buddhism meditation asia asian southeastasia whenindoubtphuket adventure holiday vacation explore

Mindful eating is a HUGE part of intuitive eating. When we eat while distracted (on screens, driving etc) our brain isn't able to register that we're eating as easily. It gives us digestive issues and we're more likely to feel unsatisfied at the end of the meal. Just like with meditation, often we Avoid mindful eating because when we actually sit down quietly our mind becomes much louder 😩 BUT if you really want to tune in to your hunger and satiety and feel satisfied it's got to be done. So, first step put your food on a plate. Then, sit at a table preferably somewhere quiet. Keep phones, tv, laptop etc AWAY and OFF. Look at your food, smell your food, take a bite. Chew slowly. Chew lots. Notice the texture, the taste, the heat/coolness. Swallow and take another bite. Repeat the process. Stop halfway and check in. How's the food tasting? How do you feel? When you feel satisfied, you'll know. Now go do that, and tell me it's not the best! You'll know very quickly if you're not eating what you really want and you'll feel really satisfied and get enjoyment if it is!!

The Buddha relic of Wat Chalong Temple, ashes from the funeral pyre of the Buddha. Wat Chalong Temple is most revered for the sacred relic that is kept in inside, a fragment of a bone of the Buddha. The relic that is named Phra Borom Sareerikatat is kept inside a glass case on top of the 60 meters high Phra Mahathat Chedi. It was brought over from Sri Lanka and was installed in the chedi by HRH Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn. The walls of the chedi contain mural paintings depicting scenes from the Jataka, the tales about the previous lives of the Buddha. A large number of Buddha images is kept inside the three story chedi. travel traveltheworld travelphotography thailand phuket watchalong temple buddharelictemple buddharelic crystalball relic buddhaashes content buddha goldenbuddha gold thaibuddha zen themiddleway peace buddhism blessing architecture asianarchitecture thaiarchitecture meditation adventure vacation holiday explore

If your life was a pie, how big would the piece be that's devoted to "health"? How about your friends and family? Relationship? Interests and hobbies (outside of the gym)? Work? Education/learning (doesn't have to be official, just something new)? Nature? Spirituality? FUN? Back when I was dieting and focused on my body almost the whole pie was what I viewed as health, which was food and exercise. A tiny amount was friends and family. My relationship was scraping through, barely. There was no such thing as hobbies and interests. No connection to nature, no spirituality, education was hanging on by a thread, work was there too, but I didn't like what I was doing at all. I never ever did anything for fun, almost everything was devoted to making myself "better". Can you see how unhealthy that really is? Can you see why I was miserable? We all only have one pie, and if any piece is too large there just isn't space for the others. How big are the pieces in your pie?
