#%@t talk is often the way we think and talk about our bodies. Negative self talk leads to emotional eating and that combination makes it almost impossible to live life fully.
How then to befriend your body?
6-word memoirs about your body is a place to start. This is a creative, enjoyable exercise to think about your body differently.
NPRBooks reviewed Six-Word Memoirs: Life Stories Distilled. Here is what they said: “Once asked to write a full story in six words, legend has it that novelist Ernest Hemingway responded: ‘For Sale: baby shoes, never worn.’”
In this spirit of simple yet profound brevity, the online magazine Smith asked readers to write the story of their own lives in a single sentence. The result is Not Quite What I Was Planning, a collection of six-word memoirs by famous and not-so-famous writers, artists and musicians. Their stories are sometimes sad, often funny — and always concise.
We write 6 word memoirs at Green Mountain at Fox Run.

Send me a 6 word memoir–they are so fun and a great way to move out of @#!t talk.
