Self-care: Embodiment, Personal Autonomy and the Shaping of Health Consciousness | Christopher Ziguras
35 posts
This book examines the widespread cultural and political consequences of the proliferation of popular health advice. It provides a key theoretical contribution to the sociological study of health and embodiment by illuminating the processes of social change that have transformed how individuals care for themselves and the ways in which power and desire now shape health behaviour. Self-Care will be of essential interest to students and academics working within the fields of sociology, health and social welfare.

I was so inspired by my #AdventCalendar (first ever) to get 12 more days worth of #SelfCare to round out my 24 days of Christmas. The bling #Starbucks cup is to entice me to drink water everyday. And I‘ll have one piece of chocolate a day as well :)

Go #TeamNutcracker !!! ❄️ #WinterGames

Clwojick I love this! I try to do a bit of self care every day, but I might just follow suit, and make myself up a little package as well. ♥️ Although, I have so many products already, that I can probably “shop” through my stash! 2mo
ElizaMarie @Clwojick I think it‘s a great idea! You could use what you have and just set it up like that. And have something to look forward to. :) 2mo

1. I like to sit on the couch and read or play games in my iPad. Preferably in pjs or lounge wear.

2. I thought I‘d send out to new followers with a hardy welcome.

QuietlyLaura I like playing games on my iPad, too! ☺️ 2mo
sarauscher I love days I get to stay at home and cuddle on the sofa with my dogs and a good book!! Thanks for tagging me. 2mo
PickingBooks I cut my toe nails. 😂 If I feel like I need self care, that means I probably haven‘t had time to even cut my toenails. So I sit down somewhere quiet and cut my toenails. In the summer I‘ll paint them too. 2mo

Thanks for the tag @Chrissyreadit ! I think that this would be an enjoyable self care day for me. I would get up real early to go fishing at one of my favorite spots. Nothing clears my head and relaxes me like fishing. Then I would get @cobwebmoth for some coffee and conversation, and a sushi lunch. We could go to a local book store, I could sneak a nap in a convenient hammock, and then a nice river walk and dinner at the Beehive Tavern.

Suet624 Sounds great. 5mo
Chrissyreadit That does sound like a lovely day! 5mo

@Chrissyreadit Here are some things I'd love to do for an ideal self care day. Vegan gluten-free waffles, spending time creating in one of my art journals, while enjoying nature, hot stone massage, enjoying a glass of wine in a speakeasy.😊 Thanks for the tag!

Chrissyreadit Those all sound AMAZING! 5mo

Big karate show today but before the makeup here is my #nofilter #nomakeup selfie for the #bfcr2.

A black belt is just a white belt that never gave up.

Lucy_Anywhere I hope the show went well! I love the ribbons in your hair - so cute! 6mo
krayoncolorz @Lucy_Anywhere thank you! It did. Finally home after a full day of setup and then performing. Sadly someone broke my glasses 😭 (edited) 6mo
wanderinglynn Beautiful! ❤️ And such a great smile. I also like your hair ribbons. 👍🏻 But sorry your glasses got broken. ☹️ Thank you for sharing. 6mo
krayoncolorz @wanderinglynn thank you! I‘m due some new ones but wasn‘t really planning it so soon. And now I can‘t read well until I get new ones. I‘ll have to audiobook it until then. 6mo

I‘m organising a little #litsyreadingretreat at The Gladstone Library - you get to sleep in the library! We‘ll arrive Friday PM & leave Sunday PM. We‘ll read, eat cake, go for walks across the estate & a pub lunch...you can do as much or as little as you‘d like! If you‘d like to come: you need to book your room direct with the library & then email me & let me know you‘re coming & I‘ll do the rest! They have 6 rooms available...

Bklover I want to come!!😳😭 1y

RachelO Wow! Thanks for the tag @squirrelbrain , and what a fantastic idea @Mitch ! I'm going to have a bit of a think - my finances are a little up the creek this year 🙄. It does sound wonderful! 1y
Mitch @RachelO me too! The idea is to keep it super low cost...just the cost of b&b and then a pub lunch or two. The Library needs one nights accommodation paid for now ( (f8 approx) but then balance you pay in April. Drop me an email if you have any Qs xxxxx 1y
Mitch @eraderneely yeah. It‘s going to be so fu and relaxing...sooooo much time to read! 1y
Mitch @Birdsong28 A weekend of nothing but reading and eating! 1y
squirrelbrain @Birdsong28 it would be great if you could come along! 1y
squirrelbrain @miralunasbooknook 🤞 fingers crossed! 1y
squirrelbrain @eraderneely be great if you can come - I‘m going on the train from Leeds I think (more reading time rather than driving!) so let me know... 1y
squirrelbrain @RachelO it would be great if you could come - sounds like it‘s going to be soooo relaxing! 1y
jhod Thanks for the tag! I am not very good at planning so far in advance but it does look lovely! I will ponder... 1y
Caroline2 Oh thanks for the tag! I‘ve been wanting to stay at the Gladstone library for ages! I‘ll have a discuss with the husband and see what we can do! Lovely idea!! 😊 1y
squirrelbrain @caroline2 hopefully you‘ll be able to come, especially as it‘s somewhere you‘ve always wanted to go.... 1y

Mitch @Cinfhen it‘s going to be in April 2019 Friday 5th to Sunday 7th. It takes about 2 hrs by train ( plus a local bus at the other end) from London. The library is stunning, it‘s the only Prime Ministers Library open to the public and you can sleep there too! There‘s a lovely village pub for Sunday roast and a farm shop near by for cake... it‘ll be lovely! Come! 1y
Mitch @squirrelbrain yeah do...there only a few bedrooms so don‘t delay... it‘ll be so relaxing and quiet! 1y
julesG Very very tempting. I'd have to do a rough calculation of costs, in 1y
julesG GAH! Hit send too early. Wanted to add: including travel costs. And need to check with my cat sitter. 1y
TrishB I will have a look how likely this would be! Fabulous idea though! 1y
Kalalalatja This sounds amazing! But being unemployed doesn‘t leave a lot of money for travelling, unfortunately... I‘ll join the next time 🙌 1y

laurenbescoby Might have to wait until the new year for me, christmas is making things a little tight! Sounds amazing though! Xx 1y
Mitch @miralunasbooknook cool...just for info - the library takes one nights payment now and then toy pay the second night when you arrive in April.... rooms & breakfast are approximately (f8 per night ( which includes access to house and library) 1y
wanderinglynn That sounds amazing! I‘m definitely going to check it out! ☺️ 1y
AmyG Ha! @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I will pick you up. This sounds like the perfect weekend! 1y

Mitch @julesG there are some twin rooms if anyone wants to buddy up and split the costs... 1y

laurenbescoby Food for thought! Shall speak to my partner when he's back this weekend. It looks like there's more than six rooms as it came up '5 available' of the single en suite. Fingers crossed I can get booked in! 1y

scripturient Okay, it was too tempting: I‘m in!! 😁 1y
julesG It's too tempting and I think @scripturient nearly has me at tipping point. I just need to hear back from my go-to catsitter. Also, would anyone like to share a twin room and go Dutch with me? 1y
julesG @miralunasbooknook wanna share a twin room? 1y
laurenbescoby @julesG My partner was also thinking of coming so we were going to book a double. Sorry! I'm sure there are others wanting to go! 1y
laurenbescoby Also gonna tag @toric in this ^_^ 1y
scripturient @Moray_Reads What about you? 😊 1y
toric Oooo this sounds exciting. The two singles are booked but theres two twins and two doubles still available 1y
Mitch @scripturient yeah...so excited! 1y
julesG @toric Wanna share a twin? 1y
toric @julesG i cant commit for another week and a half. I wont find out if my job is secure for next year until then 😑 1y
julesG @toric I fully understand. Well, if I decide to go, I'll book a twin. The single rooms are booked already. 😉 1y
scripturient @Emilymdxn Julesg is looking for someone to share a twin room with. This would probably make things cheaper by about 20 pounds per night. 😉 1y
Mitch @Oryx Hi honey...can you drop me an email so I have you address and I‘ll send a little email out to everyone later today xxx 1y
Oryx @Mitch hi. Thought i did but maybe I got your address wrong, will check now and resend. 1y
julesG I'm in!!! I booked a twin room, should anyone want to share. 1y
Soubhiville @Mitch Oh my gosh I‘m just seeing this! Maybe next year! Will you let me know if you‘re doing it again and if so when you choose a date? It sounds heavenly. ❤️ 11mo
Mitch @Soubhiville of course... I went last year and it‘s a really amazing place. Fingers crossed for next year 🤞🏼💕 11mo

Great idea @miralunasbooknook 🧘‍♀️😃

1. I go to yoga 5-6 days a week, one of my favorite #metime activities. Today I‘m aiming for 3 classes in one day: restorative, stretch, and Yoga Nidra. One down, two to go. All 3 are deeply relaxing and restorative.
2. 👆🏽👆🏽👆🏽I also love to hike and spend time in nature. And read!
3. Write up my Monday to-do list in my #bujo
4. 👍🏻


laurenbescoby Wonderful! My partner and I are hoping to start yoga in the new year together. We'll see how that goes! I always feel more in control with a to do list too, especially when those things start getting ticked off. Xx 2y
BethM I adore yoga, unfortunately my studio only has one class that fits my schedule. Tomorrow we're doing 108 sun salutations I'm excited! 2y
peaknit I would really like to try Nidra. I love yoga too, once a week in a class feels like a treat:) 2y

JillR I‘ve not done any proper exercise in years but about two months ago I found Yoga with Adrienne on YouTube. I follow her 30 day plans 4 days a week now and can honestly say it‘s changed me so much for the better. I‘m not ready for a class yet but can cope with her 30 mins a day sessions and feel so much better for it 👍 2y
4thhouseontheleft @miralunasbooknook I am known to add a completed item to my list just so I can check it off. 😂 2y
4thhouseontheleft @BethM That‘s awesome! My yoga studio is doing the sun salutations New Year‘s Eve, but I‘ll be in New York. @peaknit I have to be in the right frame of mind for Nidra, or my mind just wanders for an hour. Or I fall asleep.😜 2y
4thhouseontheleft @JillR Yoga is a great way to ease back in to exercise!! I love the Yoga With Adrienne YouTube channel. Another good one is Heart Alchemy Yoga. That‘s awesome you‘ve taken that step. Way to go!! 🎉🎉🎉 (edited) 2y
JillR Thanks @4thhouseontheleft I feel so much better, and I‘ll check out Heart Alchemy :) 2y
Bookladylinda I want to take a yoga class, maybe I can find one for beginners in January. 2y
peaknit @JillR @4thhouseontheleft is Adrienne and Heart alchemy available for free? I‘m on yoga collective through Groupon 😊but always 👀 for new options:) 2y
4thhouseontheleft @peaknit Yes they are both free on YouTube! 2y
4thhouseontheleft @Bookladylinda It took me a while to find the right yoga studio. The one I go to, iShine Yoga, opened in April right outside my neighborhood, and has a ton of different classes, is not hot yoga, and caters to all levels. I love it! I suggest trying a few different studios to get a feel for what you want. 2y
peaknit 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻thank you! 2y
JillR @peaknit yes it‘s free. I‘ve done the 30 day Yoga Camp and am now doing Yoga Revolution, both with Adrienne. They are 30 mins each so fairly do-able daily 👍 2y
Bookladylinda Thars great advice @4thhouseontheleft , i will do that. Thank you!! 2y

1. Don‘t have a photo to post, but I finally got my (biannual) hair cut earlier this week. 💇🏻‍♀️ Thankfully my stylist gives a great cut that grows in well over the 6 months between visits.
2. Reading! Followed by Netflix (usually TV comedies I know & love like The Office, New Girl, Parks & Rec).
3. Laundry, some cooking/food prep. 5 work days till the winter break! I can do this. 🤞🏼
4. 👍🏼👌🏼💪🏼

laurenbescoby I love the feeling after a haircut. I really need one! I'm also doing some food prep. Makes me feel so much better during the week when I have something decent to eat reading and waiting. Thank you for joining in! Have a lovely week. Xxxx 2y

benchley1 Which play? I love going to the theater! 2y

2. Reading of course, is there any other way?!
3. I always decide what I'm going to wear the next day, so I don't have to think about it at 5.30am!
4. Such a lovely idea to post this @miralunasbooknook , and I'd also like to give a shout out to @Avanders @BookBabe and @MrBook for the exchange, plus everyone else who takes time to organise events on Litsy.

laurenbescoby Picking out what you're going to wear is a lovely way to prepare. I think what you are wearing really helps to dictate your mood for the day. Also love the fire 😍 thank you for taking part. Xxx 2y
