Be Happy by Being Grateful this November
What are you grateful for?

It’s a simple idea, really. It’s being grateful. Ever find yourself wishing you had the stuff your friend haves? Or do you catch yourself watching a movie and you start feeling bad about your room, your clothing or your shoes? It’s at this very moment that you can take charge of your gratefulness. Look around. See all you have. See what makes your life comfortable. Rich. Loving. Happy.

It may not be the stuff of legend or a movie, but it is stuff that makes you uniquely you. And no one else can look around and see what you see. Only you can be you. That’s reason to be grateful, yes?

We now know that this simple ideas is the secret of happiness. Check it out right here: https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/the-mindful-self-express/201511/how-gratitude-leads-happier-life

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough.” —Melodie Beatty

Great Curves
curves

The curve of your spine makes it possible for you to balance, walk and move the way you want! That is why starting around age 10, doctors and schools start making sure the curve of your spine is just the way it should be.

By checking your back now, medical peeps can help you if you are developing the right amount of curve. About 3 in every 100 girls have a little more spinal curve than is best…but catching that now can make all the difference in how you move!

So if you have not had your curvy spine checked out, now might be a good time to ask about it! That way you can grow with just the right amount of curve :)

For ways you can make sure you have a strong back and spine, check out Got Your Back!  You can even earn this Achievement by telling iTwixie how you are making your back strong!!

Got Your Back
new back

Girls grow an average of 3.5 inches between 12 and 14. That’s a lot of inches! And it’s so important to keep strong while you’re growing, so you always feel your best.

Here are some tips for strengthening and supporting your back during these really big, growth years. They are easy and you’ll feel great! So try ‘em:

1) STRENGTHEN YOUR CORE Try and do planks three times a week, add in sit-ups and medicine ball catch.

2) USE YOUR LEGS When you pick up or lift something, make sure you don’t bend over to pick it up. Squat and pick it up so you use your legs.

3) SIT UP STRAIGHT When you sit with good posture, you actually strengthen your core muscles, too! Easy, right? Plus, good posture makes everyone look fantastic.

NOW YOU ARE READY To Take the PLANK CHALLENGE! Planks strengthen your core and support your back. So try ‘em! Just tell us how long YOU can hold a plank, right here in the comments section below. You will earn this cool, PLANKING achievement when you do!

1. Speak Out

Ever notice that the loudest voice in a room isn’t always the most pleasant? That’s because someone like you needs to Speak Out. Got a good thing to say? Share it. Text it. Blog it. Let us all hear it. Good ideas and positive energy always win the spotlight. And when someone’s rude, Speak Out, too. it’s good to remind each other that we don’t need to be rude or inappropriate to make a point. Keep it simple, like “that wasn’t nice,” or “I disagree and wish you’d be nicer.” They’ll get the point.

2. Speak Face to Face

When your gut tells you it’s time to put down that phone and speak to your BFF in person, trust it. You’re probably right. Some conversations are simply best to have Face to Face. You’ll cherish them more. They’ll be more meaningful. And your BFFs will see your Social Superstardom shine through every part of you.

3. Kill ‘Em with Kindness 

Everyone wants to be loved. So love ‘em all!
Should you let someone disrespect you? No, no, no! But try starting a conversation with a little love — say a compliment — it’s always a great way to get someone to pay attention. Even the toughest kid will want to hear more. “Great job on that test,” or “Nice shot,” or “I totally agreed with your question in class,” are some easy ways to get on the same page with your future, new, or old, BFF right away.

How did our 3 Tips for being a Social Superstar work for you?  Like them? Feeling like a Social Superstar yet? So, tell us, how is your Social Superstardom going?
