I love the dots. They're odd enough to appeal to my surrealist side but subtle enough to wear in public.

So how've you been feeling lately, Miners?

I've been doing meditation after initially being very skeptical about it, and it really helps! I'm neurotic and pretty much anxious 24/7, it calms me down especially if I'm in the middle of a panic attack. It feels really difficult to start especially noticing how hard it is to breathe and how tight my chest gets during it, but after a few minutes it's almost like the panic attack didn't even happen. I suggest starting with some guided meditation rather than just sitting down unguided and overthinking shit, it really helped me.

Anonymous 4822


Do you have any suggestions for guided meditation? I remember I downloaded an app ages ago that had lots of free guided meditation, but more of the ones I listened to really grabbed me (I probably gave up too soon).

Anonymous 4835

I don't have a good suggestion since I use an app that is linked to a fitness device, but I think you should keep trying to find a guided meditation that works for you.
Other than apps, there's always youtube videos. Different genres to experiment with are breathing, walking, visualization (like going on a mental journey), body scan, focus, and a lot more. Go for it!

Anonymous 4850

There's a huge compilation of stuff here https://mega.nz/#F!7gNEiJqR!nnYY0HznoK5mtmj1vXzPPg, I recommend you start with the Take 10 series first if you aren't used to meditation. I'm still going through it so I can't say exactly which programs are the best, but that's a good starting place.

Sup miners,
So, how does one develop their own fashion style? This includes hair, makeup etc.. I don‘t want to dress like a basic bitch. Images are encouraged.

Hory shit, she does! Thanks for letting me know!
Holy fuck pic related is amazing. Is it real vintage?
Rip lookbook. I downloaded the vogue app and runaway vogue app, so maybe I‘ll find some fun styles there. But I‘ll definitely give it a try.
Damn I have really thin hair though. But I‘ll order some rogaine. Thanks for the pics, I really appreciate it.

Anonymous 4790

I found the source, it's an etsy store, I don't know if it's real vintage: https://www.etsy.com/shop/JUNKKYARD/items?ref=pagination&page=3
(I dunno if the link will work but if it doesn't just google junkkyard)
If you liked that you can also check the site of Dolls Kill, although it's pricey.

Anonymous 4791

I'd suggest going on Pinterest so you'll have a little dashboard of stuff you like that you can look over to determine any patterns/recurring themes. Also there's nothing wrong with being a "basic bitch". Dressing like an IG art hoe or a tumblr girl or a goth gf are also very basic and formulaic, even though people try to adopt these styles to be "original".

Anonymous 4815

Holy shit thanks! I think I found my style.
Well that’s what I meant with basic bitch. What did you have in mind? Pls post pics.

Anonymous 4852

I don't have anything in mind for you because I don't know you, but it appears you've found an aesthetic (internet girl) so that's good! Just wear what you like – I suggest going thrifting at first so you don't invest too much money into a wardrobe that you're just testing out.


Is it normal to never think about sex? Anonymous 4808[Reply]

I had my first boyfriend. He was 22, I was 16, and I have had sex with him until I broke up with him when I turned 18. I'm european here so it's legal.
Since then I haven't engaged or wanted to engage in anything intimate or sexual, except making out with 1 guy at a bar last summer that led nowhere.
I've never wanted, had the desire to, or attempted to masturbate either. Sex is very nice in my opinion but only with another person.
I'm 21 now, is this normal?

Anonymous 4809

I'd say it's normal, as long as you feel at least somewhat positive about sex in general you're fine.
BTW I think I only started genuinely enjoy sex right before my 30's. Give it time.

Anonymous 4814

Yes, asexuals do it all the time. Yet paradoxically they probably talk about sex more than sex-havers do.

really makes you think huh?

Hey, /fit/.

I'm a 1.77 and 67 kilos woman. I'm interested in fasting and I would like to ask some stuff regarding it and having your opinions about it.
So I'm gonna give some exams at the end of the year for my college entrance exams so I can't really have all that brain fog and tiredness that the fasting will make me have.
Should I exercise when I fast? I'm anemic so will fasting make me collapse or something?
Also, will fasting make me lose my breasts?

Anonymous 4812


Girls, can we please stop pretending fasting has health benefits? This isn’t some pro-ana shithole where we want to sabotage each other and compete over who can become sicker, I hope. You shouldn’t be fasting, especially if you’re anemic. I advise you to make subtler changes moving forward. Exercise is great, but for the love of our patron miner Cece don’t starve yourself.

Thanks for the reply, it wasn't exactly what I was looking for. I don't really know what kind of answer I was expecting when the real work towards recovery is the point where I'm stuck.

It did help me write down a list of actionable items in response to urges:
- Drink water
- Write down What, When, Where, Feeling in response to urges
- Move to a different room/place or take a walk if possible

how do i let go of the idea ill be happy and loved if i lose my weight?

Anonymous 4747


>posting photos of thin bodies is wrong because it's "pro-ana"
>posting disgusting fat fetish material is okay
Mark me baffled.

Anorexia is often a goal-oriented disorder. There is a need to reach the next milestone or "do better". It's a flawed mindset because when you're overweight, losing weight is a good thing, so you keep setting new goals for yourself as you drop the weight, but at a certain point, it no longer becomes beneficial and eventually harms you.

I've gone through it myself, and the best advice I can give is don't try to recover; it will lead you to continue centering your life around your body and food. If you try to regain weight, it will make you depressed; if you try to lose weight, you will get sicker without peace of mind. Find something else that's important to you, try to create other goals for yourself that can occupy your time and thought. Find other qualities or accomplishments to idolize.

It can be hard to stop thinking about when you need to eat multiple times a day or exercise, so another thing I'd suggest is having something else to do when you eat/exercise. Maybe listen to music, or read something, or do some work. Any distraction will help because eventually you'll stop thinking these negative thoughts throughout the day.

I started at the same weight and height as you but I'm still only at about 150, if it's okay to ask, how long did it take you? I want to eat less meat more veggies, cut out dairy and bad carbs but is there anything else that really helped you? I understand if you choose not to answer and I'm sorry this doesn't answer your question.
I feel the same way as you though. It goes back and forth in my head too between like "I think I'll have to reach a lower weight" and "no this goal is fine just chill out" so maybe keep telling yourself it's okay even if you don't necessarily believe it at first. The other anon gave you great advice, I hope you can overcome it

Anonymous 4749

I've been vegetarian since I was very young. It took me a few months to go from 180 to 150 then a while to go from 150 to 140 then I went from 130 to 110 fairly fast. Remember though fast weight loss makes you prone to binges and going up and it's terrible. I started purging everything i ate at around 135. It's gross and not dainty and beautiful.

Sleep patterns Anonymous 4779[Reply]

What time do you wake up?

And do you go to bed at regular times during the week?

Anonymous 4781

Between 5am and 6am now. Am NEET.

I always sleep at the same time.

Anonymous 4788


Depends on my schedule on what I'm doing the next day. Either way I don't think my sleep schedule is so good as I tend to usually get about 4-5 hrs of sleep plus no naps throughout the day.

During weekdays it is usually between 7 to 8 AM.
Weekends are from 11 AM to 12 PM.

As for going to bed it's usually about the same time between 2:30 AM to 3:30 AM. I'm a night owl, but I always want to wake up in the morning to have as much time to do work so then I can have more time to goof off.

Anonymous 4792

This week I've been going to sleep around 2am and waking up around 10:30-11. I usually go to bed later, though. Naturally, I function best going to bed early and waking up early. But my work/living situation doesn't allow for that at the moment.


Tall Girls Thread Anonymous 3090[Reply]

For sharing tips and tricks on how to make the best out of your height!

How did you come to terms with being tall? (how to be more confident and comfortable)
Clothes that suit you the best?
Maybe other specific hair or beauty routines and styles?
Diet and excercise? (since there are differences depending on height/build)

I'm about five ten, for reference.

I've always quite liked being tall because my nature made me slightly scared of everyone who was teller than me growing up. I was never tormented by the 'less feminine' idea because I knew that if I want to exude feminine vibes, I want them to be /gfd/ vibes. My only gripe is that the world is made for short people and my tallness is in my torso so I'm inclined to slouch.
Again, since my height is in my torso, things that travel all the way down to my waist are paramount. I like wearing blazers and other things that compliment long limbs. The era of crop tops is my bane because I already struggled with finding shirts that are long enough- Dynamite has betrayed me completely in this respect, they used to be so good for tall people.

Pic related hair length but a bit more fluffy. I work for the hair, the hair does not work for me, I don't 'care' for it as much as desperately try to tame it.

I'm 5'9 and I love it. I usually wear 2-3 inch heeled shoes b/c I wish I was taller. It's great being tall and thin with long legs. I also hear that men are intimidated by tall women, but that's just a plus if it's true.
