Body Positivity & Fashion | 2022 EveryBODY Fashion Show

/
1 min read

Body positivity is more than a buzzword. It has a range of origins and cultural roots dating back to the fat acceptance movement of the 1960s. Over the past decade, it’s picked up momentum with brands & groups championing similar themes in their own campaigns.

The fashion merchandising class at Youngstown State University is doing just this as they head back indoors for 2022 and its EveryBODY Fashion Show.

The message the show sends is powerful: Everyone’s body is beautiful and deserves to be acknowledged as such. Many suffer from an eating disorder and the stigma around getting help for it. The show is aiming to reduce that stigma and connect people with the help they deserve.

The show promotes inclusivity for all ages, sexualities and body-types. The show is dedicated to Danielle Peters, a former merchandising, fashion and interiors student of Youngstown State University. Peters died due to complications from bulimia in the summer of 2012.

Youngstown State University’s Fashion Merchandising Department will be hosting the annual everyBODY Fashion Show on Wednesday, April 13th at 6PM at the Beeghly Center at YSU.

Special Guests: Professor Jennifer Frank, Nia Simms, Corinne Zielinski, Maddie Fessler and Erin Jackson.

Color Your Self Calm | Ep. 19

/
2 mins read

Recently, without thinking twice, I picked up a crayon and began to color my self calm with my kids.

It was only after a couple of minutes that I came to a few realizations:

1) This is therapeutic and calming. This moment of zen was short lived, because I also realized;

2) I don’t even have kids and I was coloring by myself. But it did get the curious and creative hamsters on their respective wheels and here we are.

It’s May. And according to NAMI, the National Alliance to Mental Illness, it’s Mental Health Awareness Month.

During this show we’re gonna gleefully talk about the Curious | FIRST EDITION | Coloring Pages now available FOR DIGITAL DOWNLOAD EXCLUSIVELY on staycurious.org.

We also take a look at how coloring can offer therapeutic benefits to people of all ages. Whether you’re a kid or an adult, coloring has a lot of benefits for your mental health.

Many books tout the benefits of coloring — a thing that kids have known for ages. Coloring can help you channel your inner artist, de-stress and bring a sense of peace. But is there truly a benefit to coloring for adults? And what does this pastime do to our brains to bring about such pleasure and calm?

Grab your favorite crayons, markers print a few pages of our digital download, and color your self calm.
