New Study Links Social Anxiety To Being An Empath Written by Amateo Ra| Have you ever felt anxious being around other people? For some, the feelings of social anxiety can be so intense that someone can feel totally paralyzed just to be out in public. Could social anxiety’s hidden link to empathy give us a greater understanding into the lives of those affected? Social anxiety can often be an extremely confusing, challenging and even interesting experience for many. Fear is the primary feeling generally attributed to social anxiety, and those who experience it often can’t seem to discover the origin of the social anxiety within themselves. All logic can seem to fail in the face of social anxiety. A new Scientific Study recently released published on PubMed shows that people with social phobias and anxieties are hypersensitive to other peoples states of mind. This helps shed major light on the subject, finding a hidden link between social anxiety and being an Empath. So in all, if you are an Empath with Social Anxiety, you’re not crazy!
L'attitude intelligente et progressiste face au surpoids et à l'obésité La semaine dernière, sous le billet de Mélanie, Sophie a posté un lien vers cette vidéo. Je l’ai regardée en entier (ne paniquez pas devant la durée, les interventions des 5 participants durent 1h, après c’est une série de questions-réponses avec la salle – très intéressantes, d’ailleurs), et je me suis dit qu’il fallait la montrer au maximum de monde. Parce que les médecins et thérapeutes qui interviennent ici, et qui appartiennent au GROS (Groupe de Réflexion sur l’Obésité et le Surpoids), ont une vision du surpoids et de la manière d’aider les patients, très différente de celle du monde de la nutrition et de la diététique en général. (ils disent d’ailleurs que s’ils prenaient des étudiants diététiciens en stage avec eux, ceux-ci seraient ensuite recalés à leurs examens tant ce qu’on apprend traditionnellement de la nutrition est malheureusement éloigné de la philosophie du GROS). Si vous êtes en souffrance de poids, je vous suggère aussi de lire les bouquins de Zermati.
3 Ways Your Worries Are a Path to Self Discovery Many people have the view-point that we worry or expect the worst when we don’t trust the future or live in fear of what the future will bring us. Others believe that we expect the worst, because we have experienced “the worst” in the past. While these examples have some truth to them. Worrying is a Path to Self Discovery and Here’s Why: 1. Think about all of the times you were worrying and the multitude of probable outcomes you imagined to happen. Through each probable outcome you were able to find what makes you tick. This kind of Self Exploration leads to Self Discovery and is an important step to spiritual enlightenment. Each person must master them-self first in order to help others and make helpful impacts in the world.

When you can explore the depths of your emotions, you understand that they stem from thoughts forms. 3. by LJ Vanier
How The Beauty Industry Is Oppressing Women “If tomorrow, women woke up and decided they really liked their bodies, just think how many industries would go out of business.” – Dr. Gail Dines Thanks to Waking Times for this article| A mother comes home after a stressful day at work with many tiny worries racing through her mind. Who is at fault? There is an old parable that explains of a small town that suddenly notices a baby floating down the river and all the people come together to rescue the child. Beauty in Western society has become a serious illness. Eighty-One percent of 10-year-old girls have a fear of being fat! I saw a post that said “54% of women would rather get hit by a truck than be fat.” “How big is the truck, LOL?” But, according to Radar Systems, nearly half of adolescent girls would rather have cancer, experience the death of a parent, or a nuclear war instead of getting fat. Actress and makeup artist Eva Devergilis states that every woman that sits in her chair apologizes for the way they look. 1. 2. 3.
5 Surprising Yet Effective Social Anxiety Solutions By Amateo Ra |Social Anxiety can be a brutal affliction for those who experience it. The fear that so many people experience regarding social environments with others has led many to isolate, hide and seclude themselves from the World. This pent up amount of isolation and loneliness can then lead to depression, emotional instability and an overall apathetic lack of motivation for life.
