Surfacing After Silence

Life. After.

Body Positive Contest Time!

In honor of Be Body Positive Day, I’m holding a contest–with actual prizes.

The task: come up with as many ways to honor your body or treat your body well as possible.  For each suggestion you submit, I will write your name on a slip of paper and throw it into a bucket, and then will draw two names out at the end of the day on Saturday, July 31st.  At that time, i will also post all the suggestions in a comment.

here’s how to sumbit:  email me at with your list of Body Positive ideas.  I am having everyone email their suggestions because I dont’ want someone to read a prior comment and go “Oh that was going to be my idea!” an not submit an entry.  People can have duplicate ideas, but I will create a master list at the end of the week.

If you would like to participate, you must also be willing to give me your name and mailing address in case you win.

Please keep all suggestions recovery-focused.  No “go for a run” type of comments, given that that may be extremely UNhealthy for a lot of people.  And while I think treating yourself to a cookie or glass of wine could be ways to celebrate, they aren’t for other people.

So let’s find out how many ways we can be nice to our bodies without the use of food or alcohol (or any other substances) or exercise.  I know i just “did” one only five minutes ago.  (my secret for now!)

Think there can be over one hundred different things to do?  Let’s find out.
