Our attitude towards our own body is an important element in our attitude towards life. It is well known that a lot of people feel dissatisfied with themselves as a result of seeing their own bodies as objects. In extreme cases quite severe mental suffering can be caused by people who compare their own objectified bodies with unrealistic media and advertising images of what the body is meant to look like. Our culture has produced a dramatic split between the mind and the body— we tend to overvalue either the one or the other. And if we do not experience ourselves as an integrated whole, one consequence of this is that we associate certain emotions either with the body or with the mind. In some cases people are completely unable to feel certain emotions that they associate with the body. So some people can be attracted to meditation because they are rather alienated from the physical aspect of themselves. They have the idea that meditation will allow them to disappear into an abstract world where the body is no longer experienced.

STOP IT, self-help manatee. I actually just cried because of LAST MONTH.

Thank you, self-help manatee.  I needed that.

This is just beautiful.

I need to look at this ALL THE DAYS.

A gentle yoga routine to help you relax before bed. Watch the full video here.

Having a wind down routine before sleeping is a good idea, whether it’s yoga or not. Calming your mind. Letting go of the tensions and frustrations of the day.


Giving yourself suggestions that you’ll have a deep and refreshing sleep and wake up feeling great and ready to go. It’s especially good if you have to work shifts.

There’s a lot of truth in this.
