My life has been one big hate-fest of my body. I don't remember how or when or it developed, but I have been comparing my body to other peoples for as long as I can remember. I was never happy, never seemed good enough. It was like, there was always work to be done, goals to achieve. Never actually happy as I passed targets, as there was still a way to go. I've wanted my teeth sorted for as long as I can remember, and have checked out Bella Medspa to see my options when it comes to teeth whitening. 

I was going through the motions of life, hating the way I looked because I only wanted to be perfect. And to be clear, perfection is subjective. It’s also pretty much nonexistent. I was also mentally beating myself up every step of the way.

Poor body image can have such a great impact on your quality of life than you might realise. A few of those negative thoughts here and there can soon escalate to anxiety and depression. It can also have an impact on your professional life, as research by Development Academy showed 55% of people have missed out from lack of confidence. Negative body image isn't a subject that should be taken lightly, or just brushed off when someone is trying to talk to you about it.

The effects of negative body image can take a significant toll on the body, physically and emotionally, and mentally, and sufferers, like myself, often become so consumed by the idea of the ‘perfect body’ that they forget what is actually healthy and set unrealistic goals for themselves. This only leads to further emotional distress and disappointment when targets aren't met.


Kitchen Lighting Ideas

The kitchen is a part of the house that is used a lot of the time. From cooking and eating, to entertaining, and doing work at the table. So when it comes to lighting, first off, it should be practical. When you're in your kitchen, you don't want to be squinting over poorly lit pots and pans. 

Secondly, it should be welcoming and bright too. It needs to have a little warmth and appeal, allowing people to relax, especially if the kitchen is somewhere that you might settle down to work. And obviously, it must work with your current room design. The modern kitchen could do with fresh and crisp lighting, whereas vintage kitchens ideally suit warmer tones.
