Cultivating gratitude for your body

We live in a weight- and body-shape-obsessed society, and it’s easy (and normal) to develop body dissatisfaction. I recently heard the term “normative discontent,” coined in the 1980s by researchers who found widespread negative body image, particularly among women, in the United States.

I sent my sister's uterus a 'get well soon' card while she was on her period. Here's why.

I am not female. So as such, I can only infer what it's really like to have -- be on? Go through? -- your period each month. I don't envy you and the pain you go through. And as if physical pain weren't enough, there's also a grueling social stigma that walks hand in hand with that time of the month. It's that pain I want to address.
