How to help people lose weight using this simple message.
Women who receive messages of acceptance about their weight from their family and loved ones do best at maintaining or even losing weight, a new study finds.
Those who received little reassurance about their weight from those that matter, though, put on an average of 4.5 pounds over three months.
Professor Christine Logel, who led the study, said:
“When we feel bad about our bodies, we often turn to loved ones — families, friends and romantic partners — for support and advice.
How they respond can have a bigger effect than we might think.”
The study, published in the journal Personal Relationships, involved talking to young women about their weight and asking them how their loved ones had responded to their concerns (Logel et al., 2014).

It is widely believed that only strong alcohol is dangerous for your health. As for beer, it’s just a mild beverage and absolutely harmless.
We at Bright Side support a healthy lifestyle, so we’ve decided to dispel the above-mentioned delusion.
Today we tell you of the unpleasant consequences that await people who drink beer on a daily basis.
To spare yourself from the unpleasant necessity of keeping in mind all these harmful effects from drinking beer, remember one simple rule: everything is good in good measure!
The biggest question so many of us have in life, one that we have been seeking to answer for years: what happens when we die?
Even modern day science seeks to answer this question. Where does human consciousness come from and what is its origin? Is it simply a product of the brain, or if the brain itself is a receiver of consciousness. If consciousness is not a product of the brain, it would mean that our physical bodies are not necessary for its continuation; that awareness can exist outside our bodies.
Asking these questions is fundamental to understanding the true nature of our reality, and with quantum physics gaining more popularity, questions regarding consciousness and its relationship to human physicality become increasingly relevant.
Max Planck, the theoretical physicist credited with originating quantum theory — a feat that won him the Physics Nobel Prize in 1918 — offers perhaps the best explanation for why understanding consciousness is so essential: “I regard consciousness as fundamental. I regard matter as derivative from consciousness. We cannot get behind consciousness. Everything that we talk about, everything that we regard as existing, postulates consciousness.”(source)
Eugene Wigner, also a theoretical physicist and mathematician, stated that it’s not possible to “formulate the laws of quantum mechanics in a fully consistent way without reference to consciousness.”

The poem below from William Ernest Henley’s “Invictus” is not a poem about resistance but about resilience. Resilience is an attitude of indifference displayed (a kind of passive resistance) that allows any man not to allow himself to be reached and destabilized by what makes him suffer. Nelson MANDELA was able to endure many years […]
