I was talking with my mom and I decided that I would spend the next year celebrating as many holidays and occurrences as possible. I think there are around 300 holidays a month!
My mom and I have always loved all the peculiar holidays and have had many laughs discussing them. I think this year will be a lot of fun but it will also require a lot of dedication, time, and it wont be without costs. I will give you once a week up dates once I get it started (Probably next month) and I will post daily journalings as often as possible. I have a feeling I will be rather busy.
I am home schooled which I believe will make this a whole heap easier, but also more challenging. Mom made an agreement with me... For this year I will use this as a lot of my school work. I will be writing reports on many of these days and I will be doing loads of research. I look forward to this coming year and I hope you will enjoy following my blog.
Feel free to post your comments along the way.

Emotional Overeating Awareness Month

April is Emotional Overeating Awareness month.
Emotional overeating is when people let their emotions decide what, when, and how much to eat.
If people are stressed out, sad, anxious, or just don't want to think about their problems they'll often turn to food.
Some times without even realizing it people will eat something - usually sweet or salty - to deal with things that are troubling them. This can cause them to become overweight and unhealthy. Overeating can cause you to feel worse rather than better. If you overeat it can affect your health in different ways-Cancer, Heart disease, Heart attacks, and Strokes can all be caused by overeating.
Emotionally overeating can also cause more emotional issues, it can cause you to feel guilty - which often leads to more overeating. If you gain weight - which can cause you to think your unattractive or ugly- that can cause you to not want to leave the house, that alone can cause you to gain weight.
With certain people overeating to the point of being overweight can lead to a total stop of eating anything, which is bad for your body in even more ways.
So for Emotional Overeating Awareness month try to be aware of what your eating and your stress level. If you do think you have a problem with this talk to some one about it. There may be a way yo help with your emotional problems that you are unaware of...and that don't involve eating.
Happy Emotional Overeating Awareness Month
