Flying is the biggest drag in the history of drags.

That being said, there are plenty of airport hacks that can help you trudge through the sadnes that is flying with some semblance of efficiency( and sanity, if you’re luck ). If you’ve been keeping up with national news, you probably already know that travelers are in for more than a few headaches this summer as pressure on TSA agents mounts and security threats rise.

That’s why being clever about “re going through” security and getting to the gate makes life so much easier for agents and travelers alike.

1. Seem for anyone in business attire.

These folks know how it’s done. Ladies and gents who fly for work regularly will be in line at security with their belts off and all of their electronics in separate bins, which is apparently too much to ask of most travelers.

2. Turn left.

Most people are right handed. Right-handed people turned off. Go to the leftmost security line for shorter wait times. Don’t let human psychology play you.

3. Get your workout on and take the stairs.

You can’t count on much in life. What you can always will vary depending on, however, is human laziness. After going through security and immigration, hoist up your suitcase and climb the stairs. You’ll get a workout, and you’ll avoid having to stand way too close to angry people who dislike all of this as much as you do.

4. Not flying business class? Who cares? Try getting in their line anyway.

Agents working in security queues for business flyers will often take pity on the rest of us when lines start looking crazy.

5. Consider applying for the TSA PreCheck program.

For $ 85, you can get a criminal background check that’s good for five years. If you’re declared a low-risk flyer, you can bypass insane lines and get through security fairly quickly.

Okay, so you’ve stimulated it to your gate. Here are a few tips-off that’ll help you get on the plane quickly and avoid making all your efforts go to waste.

6. Use headphones for noise cancellation.

As tempting as it is to drown the piercing shouts of children in a ocean of Lady Gaga, employ headphones for noise cancellation and not for listening to your jam. Music and earplugs are a little too intense and can easily prevent you from hearing that you’re is expected to be boarding. This is a happy medium.

7. Download digital boarding passes ahead of time.

Don’t be like me. Don’t get to Germany with a 20 -minute layover and forget to download your boarding pass so you can still get on your airliner without wifi’s assistance, as they were won’t be any. Don’t miss your flight. Download that nonsense ahead of time so you don’t have to cry to three very large, uniform-clad all those people who sincerely don’t care about your problems.

8. Bring empty water bottles and fill them when you get past security.

A really easy way to expend your entire life savings is to buy one bottle of water at the airport, so skip all that, bring an empty bottle, and fill it up yourself. You don’t need Evian, okay?

9. Hurl a power splitter in your bag.

If you ask any devoted person in an airport terminal what their favorite pastime is, they’ll likely tell you that it’s hogging outlets. Travelers are notoriously horrible when it comes to sharing the phone-charging wealth, so bringing a power splitter that’ll help you and your friend( or that cute stranger) share one plug.

10. Wait to board and snag a free upgrade.

What’s the hurry? Waiting to committee can have its perks. For one, you won’t be jostle by the rest of the line while you put your luggage in the overhead compartment. You can sometimes even get a free seat upgrade if business or first-class seats don’t fill up.

Sure, these tips-off won’t take away all the nervousnes that comes along with flying, but anything that stimulates it easier is always worth looking into. If you’re braving the airport this summer, best of luck and safe travellings!

As someone who’s just a few years shy of 30, believe me when I say Halloween is never the same once you reach adulthood. But only because trick-or-treating is for the kiddies, and the only style to stock up on candy is by paying for it with your own money, that doesn’t mean you can’t throw an epic rager with your closest friends, garbs and all. But let’s get something straight-out here: Adult Halloween parties don’t have to be boozy. If you’re not much of a drinker and you’ve been brainstorming how to have a Halloween party without alcohol, I can assure you there are of ways to have fun without getting hammered this All Hallows’ Eve.

It’s almost as if the moment you turn 21, there’s this immediate assumption that because you’re now officially of age, you’re a drinker. Of course, there’s nothing incorrect with enjoying alcohol, but just because someone drinking, doesn’t mean they like to, want to, or are incapable of having a good time without alcohol. So even though Halloween is definitely a drinking vacation for 20 -somethings who’ve retired from trick-or-treating, if you’re the host, it’s your party, and you don’t “re going to have to” drink if you don’t want to. Here are a few ways to celebrate sober this year.

1. Bob For Apples

Bobbing for apples isn’t genuinely a thing anymore, but I say we bring it back for Halloween 2017.

Just toss a pouch of apples into a pail full of water, and have at it. The only regulations are that you can’t utilize your hands, and the person who can procure an apple in between their teeth in the shortest quantity of period wins.

This is an especially great activity if you’re looking to kill time, because trying to grab hold of one of those suckers is hard AF.

2. Have A Costume Contest

Things can get real messy real quick when party guests get shwasted. Drinks spill, foods stain, and when boozy hands rub drunk, sleepy eyes, you better believe face makeup get ruined.

But when a Halloween party omits the booze, odds are garbs are going to be kept in pristine judging condition, and, let me say to you, it is easier to rank a person’s attire when you can actually identify what they set out to be.

3. Carve Pumpkins

Pumpkin engraving is a dying art that needs a revival. I wouldn’t recommend putting knives in the hands of heavy drinkers on Halloween, but this is definitely a sport for sober soirees.

Make it potluck style and ask guests to scour their houses for art supplyings like paint, glitter, glue, yarn, and the like. Partner up, or design individually, and the most creative jack-o-lantern wins a prize — first dibs on the candy favors, perhaps?

4. Sing Halloween Karaoke

Halloween isn’t a holiday you’d generally presume to be musical, but there are a ton of spooky hits to jam out to.

Do your research and compile a playlist with ways like “Monster Mash, ” “Somebody’s Watching Me, ” “I Put A Spell On You, ” and “Ghost Busters” for guests to belt out. The louder you are, the easier it’ll be to drown out your buzzer — which kind of sucks for trick-or-treaters, but at least it guarantees you’ll have leftovers!

5. Have A Halloween Movie Marathon

Personally, I love getting spooked, especially on Halloween when everything just feelings 10 hours creepier.

Invite a few close friends over for a thrilling line-up, and decorate your snack table with all kinds of decadent sweets and bowl of popcorn to munch on while you watch. Prefer from a range of sh* t-your-pants scary cinemas, like,, and.

And don’t forget about the corny-but-still-creepy alternatives like,, and, or family-friendly titles like,, and.

6. Serve Animated Appetizers

As much as your guests will appreciate the time you took to transform your space into a Pinterest-inspired haunted home, they’re probably more concerned with what’s for dinner.

Channel your inner iron chef and whip up a few cocktails that scream Halloween, like these mini mummy hot dog, pumpkin-shaped deviled eggs, and spider bagel pizza bites.

Your friends will be so intrigued by the food, they’ll hardly notice the absence of booze.

7. Organize A Scary Scavenger Hunt

Either stick to your own four walls or go exploring outside the perimeters of your complex.

Halloween night can be chaotic in the streets, which builds it all the most difficult( and fun) to scope out what you need to find.

8. Construct It A Murder Mystery

Am I the only one who considers murder mystery parties on Tv all the time, but is never actually invited to one?

Make that TV magic come to life this Halloween by staging your own murder mystery. Assign each guest a part, and ask them to come fully dressed and ready to perform, because this could take all night.

9. Tell Scary Story In The Dark

Directions: Shut off all the sunlights, trench your cell phone, and rely only on flashlights to consider the script.

Channel your inner Edgar Allan Poe and take turns reading from your favorite spooky tales, like, and any narrative from Alvin Shwartz’s collection of.

Fair warning that this soiree may turn into a slumber party, because once you’ve read one or a few of these chilling tales, you’re definitely going to be afraid of the dark.

10. Attain Your Own Face Masks

We all love a girls’ night of pampering, but Halloween masks aren’t for skin care — they’re for scaring. Plus, who doesn’t love get crafty every once in a while?

Draw inspiration from the classics like and ’s green molding, or come up with a ghoulish look all your own. If your style is less creepy and more classic, I hear ’s Blair Waldorf has been spotted rocking the occasional masquerade accessory on the Upper East Side.

Party on!

When I started to include foam rolling in my own personal fitness routine, I thought it was some kind of mild form of torture at first. Let’s just say the phrase “hurts so good” is an understatement when it comes to foam rolling. But, I have to admit, the benefits that the trusty old roller brings to my #GymGoals are simply too good to ignore. So when I found out that Khloe Kardashian’s workout scheme involves a foam roller, I was candidly very, very intrigued that such a thing even exists.

Yes, Khloe Kardashian technically employs a vibrator as part of her workout routine. But before your intellect have started to float toward fictions of the kinky BDSM variety( not that there’s anything wrong with that, but hey, you were totally thinking about it ), you should probably know this vibrator is legitimately used for workout recovery. I promise — or at the least, I’m pretty sure this Kardashian only utilizes it when she exercises. But hey, what a woman does in the privacy of her own bedroom is her business, feel me?

Khloe showcased her trusty vibrator in a video positioned on the manufacturer’s Instagram, reports.


She demonstrated how this bad boy can literally give your muscles life, pre- or post-workout.

Now, if you’ve never rolled out with a typical foam roller before, the process is super simple and effective. Foam rolling is also known as myofascial release, which basically entails giving yourself a deep-tissue massage. Can I get a group “yaasss” please?

The self-massage stimulates fascia, which is the thin layer of connective tissue that surrounds your muscles. Foam rolling not only helps stretch the muscles, the committee is also excavations deep into those hard-to-reach fissures — breaking down scar tissue and strengthening the areas when they heal.

Doing this after an intense sweat sesh, or even when your hamstrings are just feeling truly tight, increases blood flow to the targeted area. Plus, according to a 2014 examine, foam rolling improves your flexible and range of motion.

TBH, it doesn’t seem like there’s anything the revered roller do, because foam rolling can even help with delayed onset muscle soreness — aka those torturous post-leg-day feels.

In the long run, myofascial release can reduce exercise-related injuries, and even start to feel f* cking astounding over period — once you get past the initial shock of the intense muscular massage, that is.

OK, so what’s the deal with Khloe’s vibrating contraption then? Like, is the whole vibrating aspect to it necessary?


According to Hyperice — the makers of Khloe’s high-tech toy — vibrating foam rollers take “regular” rolling to the next level.

Essentially, combining the frequency of the foam roller’s vibrations with the pressure and stimulation of rolling your muscles delivers a deeper dose of muscle activating and increases flexibility and range of motion in ways traditional foam rolling simply cannot.

Adding a vibrating foam roller into your post-workout routine can help your muscles recover even more quickly from intense activity, which is why celebs and athletes are all about it.

However, let’s not discount the amazing benefits of good ol’ stretching. From injury prevention, to muscle relief, to stress reduction, simply stretching out your own bod( no equipment involved) will always be effective and reliable.

But, if you adore your daughter Khloe, I suppose you could go ahead and splurge on the same vibrating foam roller, but be warned, it costs virtually $200.

If you do decide to build the investment, please don’t bust it out in the bedroom. I think it’s safe to say that’s Kardashian-approved.

Anyone who’s been to a pilates class before can tell you with confidence that the subtle micro-movements involved are no f* cking gag. But after attending several sweaty conferences on the reg, you might notice that there’s something a little than core-sculpting going on with these exerts. Basically, if your sexuality life has abruptly gone from good to with no foreseeable cause, you’re likely wondering whether pilates can help with orgasms — and the answer, my friend, is it altogether can.

A good ol’ pilates workout majorly strengthens your pelvic floor, which is the group of muscles in your pelvis that support your bladder and uterus, according to Huffington Post. Basically, if you can increase your ability to control these muscles, you can actually amp up both intensity and any other sensations experienced during sex( or, you know, when you’re going solo, too ). When it comes to the big O including with regard to, the pelvic floor muscles actually contract by themselves automatically. So, the most powerful these muscles are, the more intense the orgasm will feel.

Perhaps you should maintain that little fun fact in mind the next time your friend invites you to that early morning pilates class and you’re seduced to hit the snooze button. Her “post-workout glow” might run a further than all those feel-good endorphins, know what I mean?

If you’re intrigued by all of this( um, how could you not be ?), here are five pilates moves that you can do any time, anywhere, that’ll help take your orgasms to a whole new level.

1. The Hundred

This move majorly works the strength and stability of your core, while demanding you to engage your pelvic floor in the process.

Keep in mind as you do this workout that there’s actually a connection between the pelvic floor and the transversus abdominis( aka a very deep layer of core muscle ), so when done correctly, core run sculpts the pelvis muscles, as well.

Working the pelvic floor — which involves the muscles surrounding your vagina — during this exercise will also help teach you how to voluntarily squeeze these muscles.

Pro tip: If you squeeze those muscles during sex, it can feel amazing for your partner — just sayin’.

2. Scissors

This bad boy is an advanced pilates exercise that calls for tremendous shoulder and pelvic stability, hip flexibility, and full-body lengthening.

Scissors help mobilize the entire pelvis by releasing tension within tight hips and unlocking the lower back. By releasing all of this tightness, your pelvis is better able to boulder up and down and move in circles freely.

Hello, spicy sexuality life.

3. Dead Bugs

Dead glitches activate the muscles in the pelvic floor and are challenging AF.

As you pull your abs to your spine, be sure to keep your mid-section and pelvis as still as is practicable, asserting complete control over this part of the body.

4. Chest Lift Holds

This baby is basically the same as a sit-up, but it calls for style more focus and control.

Engage your pelvis, and try to do these chest lifts without moving the pelvic area or pressing your lower back into the mat.

Consistently doing chest lifts, along with the other workouts on this list, will help you understand your body better. And more body awareness leads to more control over its functions — and kickass orgasms, let’s be real.

5. Roll-Ups

Roll ups are effective, because they teach you not to rely on “the worlds biggest” muscle groups to move your body. Rather, this exercise encourages you to focus on using both your abs and your pelvis in a slow and controlled manner, sans momentum.

Be as precise and controlled as you can during this exercise to reap the full benefits — aka the best orgasm ever when it comes is high time to snuggle up with your partner between the sheets.

If you’ve ever been to a boot camp workout or tried a challenging HIIT circuit on your own, you know just how sweaty you can get when you challenge your body with these fast-paced workouts. But many people forget that a simple, and even slacken yoga flow can build you perspire like nobody’s damn business. As a yoga instructor, I love ensure the shocked look upon people’s faces when I tell them there are many yoga poses that attain you sweat way more than a lengthy treadmill sesh ever will.

Personally, I love transgressing a nice sweat before chilling out in savasana. But if you’re low-key pissed about purposefully drenching yourself in your own bodily fluids, perhaps you should remember that sweating during a workout is actually a good thing.

When you’re working hard and pushing your body, it can get overheated from current challenges. Sweat is just your body’s style of responding to these new challenges by maintaining your core temperature at a safe and steady level.

So, while you may be grossed out to see visible sweat stains left behind on your yoga mat after you finish your flow, simply remember that that is physical proof of how hard you’re working to strengthen and better your body.

Here are six yoga poses that are sure to build you sweat more than sprints and SoulCycle combined.

1. Downward Dog( Adho Mukha Svanasana)

Downward dog is a pose that is consistently returned to throughout a yoga practice. It may seem simple to some, but with a few tweaks, it can become one of the most challenging, sweat-infused asanas out there.

The key to violating a sweat in this bad boy is really engaging your legs, limbs, and core, and pushing into the mat with your widespread thumb tips-off while nudging your heels as close as they can get to the ground.

You can even add some movement here by flowing back and forth from a plank pose to down dog — if you’re up to the challenge, that is.

2. Boat Pose( Navasana)

Boat pose is no joke. Your legs will be shake, your abs will be burning, and your entire core will practically be praying for mercy.

And hey, you’ll even be channeling those literal boat vibes, if you think about your dripping perspiration as a body of water( too far ?).

3. Four-Limbed Staff Pose( Chaturanga Dandasana)

Make sure you keep your elbows as close to your body as is practicable in this yogi-style push-up, and try not to let your chest drop toward the floor.

For an extra sweaty faculty pose, try to raise your body back up without touching the ground, and sneak a couple more push-ups in there.

Side plank is a powerful limb and wrist strengthener. Its myriad of differences will stimulate you so sweaty, you might wonder if you accidentally signed up for hot yoga against your will.

Try out the classic, stacked-legs side timber first, and then transition to attempting to lift one leg for a serious core challenge.

5. Chair Pose( Utkatasana)

Utkatasana can sculpt your booties like no other type of squatting you’ve ever tried in their own lives. I know my students dislike me when I cue chair pose, but love me in the long run when they ensure all those #GluteGains.

As you sit deeper into your imaginary chair, and raise your chest higher, the pose will become more challenging and the sweat will be.

6. Handstand( Adho Mukha Vrksasana)

Practicing inversions like handstand, for even simply a couple of minutes, will give your upper body a serious jolt of energy.

I know it’s easy to be intimidated by this asana, but remember there are many differences that use the support of a wall to help you build up the force required to nail a handstand with ease.

But with hard work comes all the sweaty vibes, so be sure to save your rain for your yoga flow.

You know the feeling: You simply conquered a long day of run, you’re ready to sweat it out at the gym, but as you reach into your duffle bag, you realize you forgot your athletics bra. And, let’s be real, if you go home to get another one, your bed is going to look too inviting, and your trip to the gym will soon become ancient history. So, you can’t help but wonder, can you work out without a bra on?

Like, it seems as if everyone and their mother is already #FreeingTheNip anyway, so letting the girls breathe during your HIIT circuit can’t be such a big deal, right?

It may seem pretty harmless but, if you’ve ever tried doing burpees braless, you might beg to differ. In fact, I’m almost certain that that’s what dying is like — more or less, anyway.

First, let’s start off with your boob hurt so much when you try to get moving sans your strappy companion. Whether you’re braless and running to catch the metro, or you’re freeing the nip on the elliptical, your breasts are super sensitive to motion because they’re made out of a combination of fat and glandular( aka milk-producing) tissue, and they’re basically anchored to your chest wall, according to Greatist.


Plus, your breast tissue contains extremely sensitive nerves throughout that can be easily be torn during exercise.

Is anyone else in actual pain just reading/ thinking about this?

Plus, if you’re thinking about pounding the pavement with the twins on the loose, you might be in for some unwanted upper back and neck tension that will be hard to shake off afterward.

Basically, when you’re sweating it out sans sports bra, your muscles have to work a lot harder than usual to keep your shoulders from being weighed down by your breasts. As if you’re not already working hard enough in the weight room , now you have two extra bouncy dumbbells stuck to your chest to worry about.


And if you think you’re in the clear because your tatas are on the smaller side, suppose again.

According to, even the smallest cup sizing can experience irreversible damage to connective tissue in the long run without the proper support provided by a bra.

But sometimes, even wearing a bra while you work out won’t exactly do the trick. A 2013 survey published in the showed that more than half of women with larger breasts — along with 25 percent of women who wore an A beaker or smaller — reported experiencing uncomfortable chest aches while working out.

This is because a lot of women don’t pick the right bra style for their breast sizing, and suffer some pretty painful repercussions as a result.


So, since it’s pretty imperative to brace your breasticles for movement, make sure you’re investing in the proper support.

If your bra simply ain’t right in the midst of your sweat sesh, according to, an A beaker will move about an inch and a half in each direction, and a D cup will change as much as two to three inches. All I can say to that, is.

So, if you’re a B beaker or below, you’re going to want to invest in a quality compression athletics bra. Those are the ones that give you that whole “uniboob” look, in case you were wondering.

As for dames with bigger boob, you’re going to want to opt for an encapsulation style, which have individual beakers to supporting you and restriction unwanted movement.

Bottom line: The right over-the-shoulder boulder-holder is probably more important than you realise if you want to avoid both posture both problems and a seriously unpleasant sweat sesh.

I couldve employed a lot of assist when I turned 18 and went off to college.Ive made a lot of mistakes and memories since then, and I often think back to who I was four years ago and wonder how I attained it through everything.

There were good times, there were bad times, days that constructed me feel alive, periods that constructed me topic everything and hours that ultimately forced me to grow up.

Im thankful for these periods because theyve taught me valuable lessons, but there are days I wish I knew these lessons beforehand so I wouldnt have had to go through the ache of learning them.

Im 22 years old now and Im living a life I never couldve imagined for myself.If I could go back in time, Id tell myself these seven things 😛 TAGEND

1. Freshman year of college is going to be a nightmare.

And thats putting it mildly.

Youre going to stimulate lots of new friends and youre going to lose some. Youre going to think that taking 10 shoots of vodka to get drunk for the first time is a good idea, and youll be wrong.

Youll also be wrong about who you sleep with. As much as you want them to be right for you, nine hours out of 10, they wont be. But please, dont let them destroy you for too long because its not your fault.

Apart from that, youll dye your hair red and go running through the sprinklers at 2 am just because and itll be the most fun you ever had.


2. Some friendships wont last forever, but thats OK.

I know itll seem sad when the best friends you had in high school arent your friends anymore. If Im being honest, the loss of those friendships will still sting occasionally, but eventually youll accept the fact that things will never be the same.

Youre going to do so much growing up in the coming years, youll grow apart from people you thought would be there for you forever and you will change. Not everyone will like or want to be a part of that change, and thats OK.

The people who really matter will stay by you through thick and thin, and those are the lasting friendships you want.


3. Examining abroad will be the best period of your life.

Enjoy the baguettes and Nutella while you can, because that semester will fly by a little faster than you want it to.

Youll spend your nights in tavern after drinking inexpensive bottles of wine, and youll kiss random strangers whose speeches you wont quite understand.

Youll fall in love with the cities of Italy, spend a week with your family in Switzerland and reunite with your freshman-year roommate in Scotland.

Some of the best nights will be with your best friend, eating pasta and watching every rom-com imaginable. Youll come home after five months realizing that everything is the same as how you left it and because of this, youre going to dislike America for a while. Dont worry, it does get better.


4. Unrequited love is its own kind of hell.

Unfortunately, youre going to become quite the pro at liking men who dont end up liking you back. There are going to be many, many men that come and go over the next four years, so dont take anything too personally when those relationships aim. Youll eventually learn that you were seeking the wrong guys at the incorrect time.

After you graduate, youre going to meet someone on New Years Eve and hell be different than all the remainder. Hell make you believe in the sorcery of beginnings again. One very important piece of advice: Dont fall in love with him.

When you fall in love for the first time, it should be with someone whos going to fall in love with you too. You wont get what you want from him, so do your best to leave the memories of him in the past and be grateful he taught you how to open upagain.

Why Falling In Love Is Never Like It Seems In The Movies


5. After you graduate, your world will fall apart for a little bit.

Youre going to feel lost for a while, because no matter how many times you tell people you accommodate well to change, deep down you know its a lie.

Youll be scared of what happened next, and youll have a grand idea for how you want their own lives to turn out. Please dont hold onto that notion too tightly because almost nothing will happen the route you expect it to.Having too many ideas and no actual style of turning them into a realitywill be overwhelming, and youll only disillusion yourself in the long run.

Do your best to not let your expectations for life get the better of you because youre going to make it the working day. Youll get to do the things that you want, so dont fret too much about the style things play out. Theyend up alright in the end.


6. A bad day in New York City is still better than a good day anywhere else.

Do you want the harsh truth? Moving to New York is going to be the hardest thing youll ever do, even though its also the very best decision youll ever make for yourself.

Youll question why you came, youll doubt how qualified or ready you are to be here and youll hold going back home to Texas because that would be the easy and painless option.

Staying and procuring an apartment and job will be incredibly stressful and tiresome, but I promise you youll laugh about it in six months.

Whenever youre feeling defeated, itll help to look up at the Empire State Building. One glance of that building on your commute to run every morning sets everything back into perspective, I promise.


7. Prepare yourself for a wild ride.

Youre going to do so many crazy, reckless, beautiful, impulsive, careless, stupid and messy things on your route to growing up.

Youll expend some nights exclaiming yourself to sleep, and some nights youll be too drunk to make it out of your bedroom door. The best nights, though, will be spend sitting up on the roof watching shooting stars or going out for a night on the town with your friends and being perfectly and incandescently happy.

Its not always going to be easy, but whatever happens is going to be worth it.

Did you know that get a thigh gap, a defined ab cracking, or the goddess-like back dimples will build you more beautiful, valuable, and happy?

If you scroll through social media, or popular health and fitness resources, and soak in the plethora of motivational memes and images displaying these features, you may be inclined to think so. Theres no deficit of these hot, new, must have, this-is-what-a-real-woman-looks-like traits being featured along side, of course, the accompanying diet tricks, gimmicks, and exerts to get them.

But, and Ill try to put this delicately: claiming features like thigh gaps, ab crackings, and back dimples as must have features is absolute bullshit.( So much for being delicate, but its true .)

No physical feature or body shape constructs you more or less valuable.

Apparently our bodies are strolling resumes, and these hot new physical features displayed by celebrities, fitness professionals, social media icons, and photo-shopped models are just items were supposed to add to it with the expectation that well be more beautiful and valuable. So what if your anthropometry and genetic make-up constructs certain it features physically impossible to obtain? Doesnt matter; these are the standards, and youd better try to fit the mold if you want to be beautiful.

Enough with the body-shaming bullshit.

And I mean all of it. Any group claiming X is the new Y or spitting mantras that begin with Real girls needs to end. Every body is unique. “Were not receiving” single feature that defines beauty or self-worth or fitness. Seem at it this way: no one else( except an identical twin) has your genetic makeup; youre truly one of a kind. So why do we think its acceptable to declare single features or shapes as must have or ideal? Why do some think its motivational to attempt to shove all the women into a single mold?

Some women are tall, some are short. Some have long extremities, some have short extremities. Some have physical restrictions, some dont appear to have any. Some are thick and some are thin. Some achieve results more quickly and others have to work harder to make any discernible progression. Women come in a variety of shapes and sizes and so this declaration of must have features is abhorrently ridiculous. And stupid. And degrading.

A woman I once worked with had what would be described as a short and stalky physique; she despised it. I simply wish I was taller so I could have long and lean muscles, she said during our first session. The marketing messages and images of long and lean muscles being something females should desire were seared into her mind. This was a battle she could never win because she cant change her anthropometry.

We had a conversation about changing her perspective and the need to stop wasting energy and berating herself for things she cant control. She loved the idea of being able to love and embrace her body, but knew it wasnt a quick transition. It would be a process.

The plan of action we created: set her energy and focus on what her body could do with strength training. She would begin by learning basic exercises with the goal of improving her performance each time a workout was repeated. Outside of the gym she was instructed to pause and reflect when she start having the I dislike my short body guess. When those guess began to bubble to the surface, she had to stop the conversation. Once she successfully paused, she would then redirect her focus to be grateful for something her body could do. For example, instead of saying, I wish I had a long and lean appearance she would stop the conversation from progressing like it normally would and instead say something like, Im grateful that I have ample energy play games with my children, or I dominated todays workout.

The energy that previously went into disliking her body shape was redirected toward strength training and other elements she could control. The premise was simple, yet powerful: her aim was to discover what her body could do, and then do more. With strength develop she began with a novice program and improved her performance each time she recurred a workout. Squats, including with regard to, came naturally to her and she progressed speedily. She began with goblet squats to learn proper technique and then switched to barbell back squats to take advantage of the greater loading potential. Her strength increased, and more plates were slapped onto the barbell.

A beautiful transformation passed: as she progressed with strength educate, for the first time she could remember, she was actually proud of her body. She was flabbergasted at her bodys abilities and previously unrealized strength. I didnt know I could be this strong! she exclaimed at the end of a workout.

These gym moments proved valuable when old guess crept into her intellect. Over period, the previous, I wish my body thinks became less frequent, and were quickly replaced with empowering statements such as her ability to squat more than she thought possible: “Thats what” my body can do. Im going to induce most of it, and then do even more, because I can.

Embracing what her body could do led to an increase in self-confidence and happiness. She was no longer focused on things she couldnt control( her extremity length) and highlighted her abilities( with strength training ). She began to care less about what other people proclaimed girls should look like and opt her own values.

So I say is again: fuck thigh gaps, ab crackings, and back dimples . Embrace your body; discover what it can do; find your natural strengths and highlight them; do things that make you feel good; become the best damn version of yourself. And encourage every other woman to do the same.

You can, and should, embrace your body and all its features, and you should encourage every other woman to do the same.

Thats one of the many overlooked benefits of strength training: it allows you to discover what your body can do and increases confidence. Strength training doesnt discriminate; it doesnt care what your age is, any limitations you possess, or what body shape you have. Strength training is for everyone.

Look, Im not indicating any of this it body features and standards proclaimed to be ideal will ever die off; there will always be traits and features held desirable and others proclaimed must-repair flaws and tips-off, tricks, and products to help us get or remove them.

But heres the great news: we can exit these conversations.

We have the choice to reject this nonsense.

We can say, Some girls have thigh gaps, and thats cool. Some females dont, and thats cool too. Now, excuse me while I go appreciate my body for the awesome things it can do instead of preoccupying over physical features some source is trying to convince me is important and valuable.

Every woman should appreciate her body, and take the necessary steps to get there if shes not already. No physical feature, size, or shape equates to value, worth, and beauty.
