it’s earth day. which is something everyone can celebrate about.

for earth day, i’m celebrating roz savage,  whom i met this past weekend.

roz savage  4-13

roz is one of the most incredible human beings on the planet.

roz became so dedicated to bringing attention to the importance of saving the earth that she went on a mission to row across it!  

roz holds a world record as the only woman to row by herself across three oceans!!

  • Comments Off on Hot off The Press: Dove Real Beauty Sketches video asks ‘What do you think about how you look?’

you must check out this DOVE youtube video that was posted this week.

it has gotten over 8 million hits.

 

just goes to show how much we miss all the beauty in ourselves.  

it’s time to stop being so hard on ourselves.

i’m in the process of taking a ‘love me’ pledge.  

give it a try…

for the next 30 days, think about one thing that you love about your body (chose a different thing each day)

let me know what you picked…

  • Comments Off on Sage’s Rage: It’s a Scary Time but Don’t Stress

too much homework

fighting with your parents

can’t understand your boyfriend

getting cyberhate from mean girls at your school

ALL OF THAT

PLUS

the scariness that’s happening in our country and around the world

seems like too much to bear

all the madness can really stress a girl out

STRESS…

we all have it. but if you don’t deal with stress, it can hurt you

stress causes our hearts to move fast, blood to boil and body’s to get hot

all those reactions confuses our immune system and makes it easier for us to get sick  

so when it comes to stress, even with all the disasters that are happening, it’s important to chill out

a great way to do that is to take a mini break; to be still

it’s stress awareness month, so i thought i’d share this pretty cool video of

teens talking in their own words about how

‘chillin’ and taking ‘time out’ has changed their lives

give it a try and let me know what you think..
