Found this in a bathroom at my college. A lot of guys had eating disorders in football and wrestling at my school and even in the rec league. I remember guys taking laxatives before weigh ins even.

Male eating disorder awareness ~

Wrestling is infamous for that kind of shit. It’s one of the reasons my brother left the sport— his coaches were ENCOURAGING him to engage in unsafe behavior.

I’ve seen a lot of it the other way round, especially in rugby, I know several men who were encouraged to go to unsafe measures to gain weight.

Yes. ^^^ The masculinization of eating disorders. I knew some wrestling guys back in high school - it became this competition as to who could lose then keep of their weight the best. The guys would have competitions to see who could go the longest without eating, and if you lost, of course, you were a “pussy”
Thankfully a suspension went on while they reviewed these practices that were of course encouraged by the coaches.

Almost every wrestler I’ve met has engaged in ridiculously dangerous behavior at the encouragement of their coaches and even their own parents. My cousin would do unsafe amounts of exercise and then barely eat or only eat baby food as he dropped weight at alarming rates. But no one ever acknowledges these behaviors as being dangerous because it’s “for a sport”. We need to put an end to this.


Sports should be about improving your health, not “winning” IMO. I really hope this stops :/

My body is perfect.

fitchris25:

It has fat.

It has stretch marks.

It can run, jump, bike, do yoga, play sports, and lift heavy weights.

"When we respectfully offer the universe our wants, we are more likely to receive them. If we become too arrogant and demanding, the universe tends to respond as if it were a person who has just been rudely spoken to. In making a request, it is important to trust that you will receive what you are asking for. It is important to remember to ask with reverence and gratitude. Although abundance is our birthright it is also a privilege to be cherished. Know you are worthy and ask the universe nicely for what you want today, and your gratitude for what is divinely yours will be rewarded. "

Goals

"Often, the best way to fulfill a desire for adventure is to expand your mind. Acquiring wisdom and seeking out new experiences is stimulating and gives you a means to break out of your daily routine. Everything you learn affects your life and your attitudes, making you see the world as well as your circumstances differently. The acquisition of knowledge, particularly when that knowledge challenges your assumptions or contradicts your beliefs, teaches you to open yourself to ideas that stir the soul and wisdom that can add flavor to your experience. As your perception shifts, you’ll begin to recognize the thrills and excitement you might otherwise have passed by. Expanding your mind through learning today will help you easily satisfy your taste for the unknown. "

I made a thing about stretching! Some of the images are hard to see, but if you click on them they should produce a larger image!

Bringing this back because of #8.

All of you, sitting around on your laptop. Take 5 minutes and stretch your shoulders, neck, lower back, ad maybe hammies too. You have 5 mins to take care of you.

I know a lot of you are starting school again or another part of your life where stress levels are rising. Remember to take time out of your day to stretch, or even just meditate. While you study or do homework at the computer, take breaks- at least every hour but ever 15 minutes is even better. Stretch, and focus far away. It’ll help with productivity, attention, burn out, and even eye heath (since you will be giving your eyes a break from the strain).
