Are We ALL Becoming Attention Seekers ? – My Thoughts !

Hey bloggers, I know it’s been a while and I have had this topic at the back of my mind for a couple of weeks now. 10 Years ago I suppose society was VERY different as to what it is today. Attention seekers worked harder to get their attention and noticed and fewer people wanted to be noticed. Do we realise that we are becoming attention seekers? I mean 10 years ago how would you grab someone’s attention without posting anything on any social network sites.

 

Are you an attention seeker? – I think we all are in one way or another. How many of you have Facebook or Twitter? Most if not all I’m sure and some of you will probably use other social networking sites like Tumbler etc. These social networking sites are designed in a way that makes us want to get noticed. On Facebook for example we “update our status” with the intentions for others to read it and later “Like” or Comment. Every day we post (Myself including) the little things everyone does in everyday life, things like the food we eat or what we drink on Facebook just so people will see and know what you’re doing. On Twitter I find people are more open (Myself Included) and people tend to share deeper thoughts even those that when posted on facebook may get a negative feedback.

 

Do we paint this pretty picture on Facebook? – I think most of us paint this mirage of ourselves on Facebook. We all want to be accepted by the majority of society so we post what we think will be “Liked” and accepted by others and with the hope that we will be, in return liked more by others and become that slightly more popular. I think we all post just what we want others to see obviously that is why we control it right? But don’t we all have darker thoughts? Not so nice thoughts that should be shared. After all Facebook does ask “What’s On Your Mind”, On many occasions I have posted an update saying “ Facebook keeps on asking me “What’s on my mind” but I’m scared if I post I will shock a lot of people!” Which I’m sure I will. At the end of the day we all seek acceptance by others and I think Social Networking sites like the ones I mentioned earlier play a bit part in it all. Maybe we don’t all realise it but I think it is getting worse. I am too a victim of this but a couple of weeks ago I was having a discussion with a friend who they claim they “don’t care what others think” So I pointed this out, we all use the edit features for the pictures, we all act as if we have this perfect life on facebook but behind that screen many of us have more insecurities than what we may know we have! Problem is, if we paint this picture too big how can we live up to it?

Hope I haven’t rumbles too much on this, Let me know your thoughts no matter how good or bad:) if you like please Like, Share & Comment!

 

Have a nice day 🙂

Diet + Hunger = Procrastination !

Hey bloggers! So most of you will have seen those funny pictures on Facebook which everyone seems to like..Literally!. Well I came across this one just now and it suits todays topic perfectly.
I have been sitting here hungry for a while now and all I can think about is “What can I eat? salad,fruits ? Nope,not me I was thinking Kebab or a burger”. Usually when I think that I say to myself “It’s okay I’ll go to the gym tomorrow” but when tomorrow comes I never seem to go and this has been going on for a couple of weeks now but seeing as the weather has been a little crap I have been using that as an excuse not to bother going. My most common excuses after the weather are “Going to have a haircut” or my favourite “Need to go to the shop after work” even thou I’ll only spend 5 mins in that shop and I know I can easily make it to the gym after that.

Summer is round the corner which means the pressure is on to get into shape. A couple of friends of mine are actually doing the Insanity Body Work-Out which is a high intense work out DVD and it’s actually adding to the pressure!! AHHHHH WHAT TO DOO!!! Well I will write it here in writing for all to see that I will be going to the gym this coming week (Week commencing Monday 11th March 2013)…But for now I am going to heat up a very nice oven pizza and enjoy every last calorie!!

Hope you enjoyed this little rant of mine 🙂 Like ,Share & Comment ! Are any of you doing any work-outs or diets? Leave a comment below maybe it can inspire me to do more 😀

Summer Is Around The Corner . . . Don’t panic ! Or Do ?

Hey Bloggers,

It is coming! and i bet most of us are feeling guilty about most things that we are eating. We all want these perfect summer bodies, I know I do! When I eat junk food I feel so guilty for eating it. Although I like going to the gym, that great feeling  I get after a workout. I love it ! So i advice if you want a summer body, PLEASE do it for yourself and not for others at the end of the day it is your body, you choose how to live as long as it isn’t affecting your health.

I hate watching films with actors like Zac Efron who have the perfect body, they make me feel bad! Anyways i know this is a bit of a superficial post but it is what most of us think. Well i do 🙂 Here is a link to a video that gives you some Ab exercises and all you need is a sofa!!! Try these out 😀 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3fU_8kJeXeE.

When you feel good about yourself you are bound to have a better day and a better view on things that will be coming your way 😀

Let me know what you think !

 

Peace ;D x

“Summer Body”

Hey blog buddies, today I’m going to be a bit hypocrite here. “Summer Body” EVERYONE wants one, everyone wants to improve ,lost weight or tone their bodies more for the summer season. I’m guilty as charged for this!. In fact I think I’m one of the worse ones,hitting the gym more times a week!. At times I feel like I’m a slave for my body!

What i want to ask from you is, if you see that chocolate cake or any junk/fattening food. EAT IT! We only live once and lets enjoy it. ! Lets not be slaves to our bodies any longer! This comes from social pressure and it is understandable. We shouldn’t care what others think,what matters at the end of the day is, Are YOU happy about YOUR body?.

 

Good Day blog Buddies 😀
