    Discover How your Body Tells your Story

    The body reveals itself in all its manifestations: through posture, gestures, muscle tone, attitudes of interaction, mastery of space, and speech. Science affirms that the body holds the explanation for the functioning of the mind. The physical constitution and its external characteristics would define, therefore, the performance of people's psyche. In 1933, the Austrian Wilhelm Reich, physician, psychoanalyst and one of Sigmund Freud's disciples, published for the first time the results of his research within psychoanalysis.

    Wonders of a weighted blanket as a body pillow!

    I’ve tried body pillows in the past to help sooth when it’s a rough night but they never helped much. What I discovered does help is my extra weighted blanket! Fold or roll it to a body pillow shape and wrestle it into a position of a person, back support, or something substantial you can hold through the night that won’t slide away. I have one rolled up on my bed all the time now, it really helps comfort me. #self soothing #better sleep #weighted blanket #body pillow

    Welcome, y’all! Fellow horse (any animals, really) lovers, come one and all! #horsesrmagic

    I created this group for every fellow horse lover, as the horse world is rough, especially if you’re dealing with any kind of mental and/or physical health issues. This includes everything from #Depression , #Drug Abuse, #Anxiety Disorders, #body Image Issues, #relationship Issues, or just #animal Lover (and the struggle that comes with being a #sensitive , #Feeling & #caring person for them), etc.

    All animal welfare topics are welcomed, but the point of this group is specifically meant to be geared to equestrians and horses.

    If you’re an #Equestrian , or an aspiring/working one, we know the challenges that can stand in the way of this. Therefore, let’s chat about it. We can unite and meet our goals! #Horses ARE magic!

    Question re: sporadic painful spasms/body jerks

    Wanting to know if anyone gets these. Orginally I use to get these muscle spasms that I think are in my arms or legs. Now in my #hands as well
    They are extremely #painful and tend to happen when I am extremely tired, hadn’t slept or needing sleep.

    Now they seem to be happening more frequently and violently. I may be on the couch watching tv and all of a sudden my body will violently #Jerk . I may be holding my cell phone and it flies out of my hands (this happens often).

    After it happens I’m wide awake because it is extremely painful.
    It reminds me of like when you #fall #asleep and you dream that you fall. You wake up because your #body jerks but it is normally not painful.

    It’s not the same as when you get a #Muscle spasm in your #back or #legs it’s more like the #whole #body #spasms . Does anyone understand what I’m talking about??? Or get this feeling? Thank you #Gentlehugs #warriors

    Being Resentful Of People With Small Body Privilege.

    Smaller body privilege exists in a world where people are discriminated against for their body size. Personally, I’ve experienced it during a period of weight loss, and have also experienced the lack of it.

    When I was in a smaller body, people found it easier to interact with me, and would objectify me in a positive light. They would also attach more positive stereotypes to me; intelligence, cleverness, and dedication.

    In a larger body, people pushed me, verbally abused me, body shamed me. They pretended that I didn’t exist and refused to acknowledge my needs and personality. They bullied and harassed me for my weight.

    Body privilege is a real issue. I am a victim of privilege which targets smaller bodies, which prevents me from being able to feel comfortable in my own skin.
