Whole Foods is giving it’s healthier employees bigger discounts. Employees’ blood pressure and BMI index, among other indicators are the factor in the employee discount they receive. Check the CNN video below and see for yourself. Critics are calling this discrimination, while proponents think it will help educate people about their own health and foster change. Decide for yourself.
So many women (and to a lesser degree men) look at the cover models on men’s magazines, or fitness magazines, or any other type of publication and allow them to form their thoughts of perfection. Not only is this potentially damaging from a mental health standpoint, it also sets an individual up for failure.
You do NOT need to look like these people on the magazine to enjoy a happy and healthy life. Actually, even the people on the magazine don’t look like the people on the magazine in real life. So much photoshopping and editing has gone into these images that the real-life proportions are completely warped.
Let today’s short and sweet post be a simple reminder – these “beautiful” and stick-thin women are NOT the picture of beauty, despite what the corporations and fashion designer’s of the world want you to believe. The majority of men do NOT find the above image attractive. The most attractive thing, at least to me, is a person who is comfortable and confident in their own skin. Love yourself for who you are and stop trying to live up to the standards of other people.
