Give to yourself and also to others

By: Stephanie Horton

Here at Guiltless, we absolutely love the Me Movement. Registered Dietitian Rebecca Scritchfield created this movement in order to remind us all to stay focused on taking care of ourselves in both body and spirit. As part of the movement, you can Download the “me” movement pledge (PDF) and fill in some goals for this year aimed at keeping you healthy, happy, and guiltless. It's easy to lose yourself in all your daily obligations and to do lists. In times of high stress, remembering to take a minute to put yourself first can be a saving grace. Check out my post today on the Me First page. It's called Let Them Eat Cake!

On another note, Guiltless believes in giving back to our environment, and with all the sorrow in the world right now, there's no time like the present. Putting yourself first emotionally and in health is incredibly important for your overall well being. But contributing to the health and well-being of others is just as vital. At this very moment, hundreds of thousands of people in Japan are suffering the horrible consequences of
the aftermaths of one of the most catastrophic earthquakes in history and the following ferocious tsunami that's demolished the northeastern area of the country. The damage is unthinkable. You can help survivors of this natural disaster with a small donation. Apple, Google, Twitter, and other technology kings are making it easy to do this. Check out this Discovery News Article on Digital Ways to Donate to Japan Disaster relief. Every little bit helps. Thank you.

Be well and enjoy the day everyone, and remember to pledge your Me First goals for 2011!

  1. I absolutely love this Me Movement. Who would've thought emotional recovery, though not easy, would be easier than the physical recovery of an eating disorder. The body forgets how to eat and and be fed. This seems another tool in recovery.
