Find Joy In Your Body

These are difficult times, which is why many people are searching for new ways to experience joy that can lift up their spirits and keep them looking ahead toward a brighter future. While there's no one-size-fits-all solution to finding joy in the human experience, a couple of tips can go a long way when it comes to finding joy in your body and practicing a healthy lifestyle that will ensure you remain confident in yourself for years to come.

Here's a review of healthy eating practices, social media habits, and other self-confidence measures that can be relied upon to help you find joy in your own body.

Try to avoid overindulging

The most important lesson to learn when trying to find joy in your body, regardless of who you are, is that you should likely avoid overindulging in things. This is true of junk food and unhealthy habits like smoking, but it's also true of things like your social media consumption. It's perfectly acceptable to treat yourself to a tasty bite of candy now and then, and there's nothing wrong with having a Twitter account or browsing Instagram in your down time. Much in the same way that you should avoid overeating chocolate and other sweets, though, you should avoid the overconsumption of social media which can make you feel bad about yourself.

There are compelling reasons to believe that social media increases your likelihood of suffering from loneliness or depression. After all, social media is not reality, but rather an acted-out image of what other people want you to see. Much like Heather Wayne Performing Arts, social media posts are tailor-made to be performative. Twitter feeds, Facebook posts, Instagram pictures and other social media consumables are not accurate reflections of reality, but carefully cultivated images meant to make you think that the poster in question is living the perfect life. You don't have to entirely eschew these platforms, but certainly avoid spending too much time on them, and consider tracking how many hours you spend each day browsing various social media feeds.

The CDC has provided a helpful review of screen time versus lean time, which posits that you should be spending about one hour each day being active instead of sitting and starting at a screen. In addition to avoiding overindulgence in social media, you should also review the CDC's advice for healthy eating for a healthy weight. Every person is different, but one fundamental principle about the human body remains true for everyone - energy in, energy out, which means that you have to eat healthy and expend energy by exercising to remain in good shape.

Finding joy in your body begins with eating a healthy diet and regularly exercising, but it also extends to your digital habits. These aren't always easy to break, so be sure to carefully record not only what you're eating but also what you're spending your time on when you visit the online world. Before long, you'll have a better grip on your unhealthy tendencies and will more readily find joy in your own body and lifestyle.

TikTok Made Me Buy It: Flawless's Skincare Fridge

I bought and tested one of TikTok's popular products so you don't have to.


I spend a lot of time on TikTok and I never know whether the products I see are worth it or not, especially when I'm looking at the price. For Christmas, my aunt got me a gift card to Ulta. I didn't know what to buy. I have way too many palettes and lipsticks. I have my essentials. What else could I need? Then it hit me that I saw a lot of people these past few months showing off their skincare fridges. So, the second I thought of it I went on the Ulta app and bought it. So, here are my thoughts.

I Asked Instagram How 2020 Was, And Maybe It Wasn't The Worst Year Ever

2020 is a year to remember but it's not as bad as we made it out to be.

Ever since I watched "How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days," I've been a major Matthew McConaughey fan. I've seen most of his movies, and I definitely got way too excited when he finally made an Instagram! So when he announced he would be releasing a memoir titled "Greenlights," I knew I absolutely had to get my hands on this book. And so did the rest of the world, as the book began to flood social media.

Truthfully, I would much rather read a fiction book and dive into another world than read a nonfiction book - even if it is one of my favorite celebrities. But I had a feeling this book wouldn't disappoint or bore.
