Bringing a New Life into This World: Feeling Powerful While Pregnant

For many women out there, creating a life is one of the most wonderful, blissful, and empowering things in this universe. This is a joyous time, and every future mom deserves to feel like a goddess. Creating a life is an amazing thing, but it is also hard work, which is exactly why a future mom needs to be pampered plenty and often, by herself and everyone around her, in order to eliminate discomfort and get the best out of this journey.

Comfort above all else

In order to feel beautiful and powerful, it is paramount that you are comfortable and relaxed – to feel good in the skin you live in. This is why it is very important and highly beneficial to indulge and splurge on prenatal massages. Studies have shown that women who received massage therapy reported decreased depression, anxiety, and leg and back pain. Massage enhances the function of muscles and joints, improves circulation and general body tone, and relieves mental and physical fatigue. It is easy to be in good spirits once your physical discomfort is at least somewhat reduced. Don’t only rely on professionals when it comes to this form of pampering – put everyone on massage duty. Have your spouse give you foot massages while you relax and unwind on the couch.

Dress it up

There is a little psychological term called enclothed cognition, which is used to describe the effect that our clothes seem to have on various psychological processes like emotions, self-evaluations, attitudes, and interpersonal interactions. Clothes affect our behavior and our mood because of the symbolic meaning that we (as a society) ascribe to different types of attire. What this basically means is that what we wear does not only affect the impression others will form about us, but will also impact the way we feel about ourselves. This, in turn, means one thing – when you like what you are wearing, you will feel more confident and powerful. However, labels and prices of our clothes have nothing to do with how we feel while wearing them. It is not about brands, it is about the fit and the feel. This is why dressing up does not have to mean emptying your wallet – you can purchase second-hand maternity wear at https://www.swap.com and still feel like a queen. You are the one wearing the clothes, not the other way around, so you don’t have to spend a million to feel like a million.

Move that body

One of the most common misconceptions out there is that pregnancy means being passive, resting all the time. However, being a couch potato will help with neither your health nor your self-esteem, but exercise will. Aside from the energy boost, lower risk of complications, and better sleep, exercising is great for lifting your spirits and reducing stress. A stress-free future mom is a happy and powerful mom. One study found that exercise boosts levels of serotonin, a brain chemical linked to mood, putting you in better spirits. Just make sure you consult your physician as to which form of exercise is most beneficial and safe for you.

Hit the books

This particular activity is very important, especially if this is your first pregnancy. Most women who are about to be moms for the first time have numerous questions and doubts filling their heads and reading all the books on pregnancy and what to do once the baby comes can do wonders in terms of your self-esteem. Keeping informed will help you feel empowered and assure you that you know what you are doing and that you will make a great mom.

Accessorize

If you are a spiritual person, and you believe that everything we surround ourselves with has an impact on our mental well-being, then by all means, definitely accessorize with gemstones. For a boost of confidence, (and a boost of style) go with a carnelian necklace. This gemstone is believed to protect the wearer from negative emotions and restores motivation, energy, courage, and self-esteem.

Get intimate

According to WebMD touching and hugging can release your body’s natural “feel-good hormone.” sexual arousal releases a brain chemical that revs up your brain’s pleasure and reward system. sex and intimacy can boost your self-esteem and happiness, too. It’s not only a prescription for a healthy life but a happy one. On top of all this, the feeling of being desired by your partner is probably one of the most intoxicating and powerful feelings in the world.

Now you are in the know, so go, and enjoy this time, and never forget to do everything in your power to feel like a true goddess.

Forgiveness After The Storm

Forgiveness After The Storm

The muse of poetry in its depths stalls the ensue of thee,Drowning in the sparse spectacle of hope left, one dives into the waters of misery.Triabilsing in the painful stance of existence, death in its allure creeps behind,To be or not be in the bane of tormenting breaths, in their truth one seems to find,

The hostility that binds, convulsion in its gloating flair laughs hysterically at the corpse of being,Dreariness to live in its slow burn writhes the only ounce of light left to see.The void of embracing the freshness of unadulterated air forges to question the beauty,Of living a life that could lead in the lightness of radiance and the smiles of unbridled glee.

The trueness of being lapses in the oscillation of turbulence and the sea of calm,Yet the tides of uncertain syllables that breed animosity render the sou

The Aesthetic Epidemic: Understanding the Roots of Lookism

The Aesthetic Epidemic

We care about more than just ourselves – we care about our loved ones, our communities, and the world around us. We are affected by tragic events, especially when a child is murdered, regardless of where it happens. It deeply impacts us and makes us feel disheartened. Moral evils raise doubts about the goodness of the world and the value of existence, especially for those who believe in a benevolent deity. However, anyone can contemplate the purpose and value of the universe in light of such evils. We may not need to worry about the value of the Universe and instead focus on finding value in our own lives or the lives of our loved ones. The concept of value is subjective and can be created by us.

The important question is what we should value or find pleasure in. Some people may try to ignore moral evil by focusing only on their own lives and loved ones, but this narrow perspective is unsatisfying for most. I

My life is a mess and I have nothing to be grateful about! I witness myself say this phrase from time to time, where life plonks us into the desperation of ebb and flow of wilderness and things not going in our favour.

It is easy to say we are grateful and in complete balance when things are going well and life feels like the warm embrace of the sun shining on a Sunday morning. But the real test lies in remaining grateful and centred when life feels like spinning out of control.

While it is easier said than done, here are some reminders that might help you get through the days that feel like a burden –

15 Most Liberating Thoughts For Someone Who Needs It

Bringing a New Life into This World: Feeling Powerful While Pregnant

Our life unfolds in a succession of revelations of who we are. It is when we sit down and repeat the same sentence in our head over and over again, in every action we perform, every activity we indulge ourselves in, does it indulges into our existence as a habit.

The key to having a sense of liberation is allowing life to flow through, not forcing anything and more essentially not resisting change. I believe that our life improves in the direct proportionality of how often we are exposed to situations where are forced to challenge our age-old beliefs and counterfeited perceptions and seek the greater version of ourselves. When we get too comfortable in the comfort zones we build for ourselves, we do not grow into the people we are meant to be. Sadly most people embrace change only when metamorphosis is the less painful and only possible option.

I know that
