Let’s call it the WH magazine. The WH magazine has spread its news and popularity thru multimedia marketing. The internet has been a very important tool on making the magazine known and doing its goal to enlighten, empower, and unite women all over the world. With the magazine women are able to connect with the feelings of one another though very far and in different country.
There are several activities held by the magazine or is sponsored by the magazine. Women’ s Health, are you game? focuses on beauty, health and nutrition. It is held at Chicago and New York city. It’s a general event with workout trainings, seminars on health, cooking demos and others. They also held a ZOOMA race with half marathons, 5km and 10km runs held with a pampering party after the race. You can check it in the internet where it’ll be held for 2013. The Summer Streest NYCshows another way to explore the city which is by bike or foot. No vehicles are allowed on roads for people to have new alternative for transportation. WH magazines activities differ depending on the country to fit for the women’s respective lifestyles to discover something new.
While you may think that everything is good with WH magazine and other health related magazines, think again. There are those that think these are bad stuff. These magazines make them feel bad of themselves forgetting the concept of loving oneself and freedom to do what you want. It’s like a simple act of manipulation of the mind by providing the standards of beauty as such, those who are not to qualify are neglected. Here are some selections on different health magazines that they find faulty; “firm and Fit, NOW!, look great Naked!, flatten your Belly! Lose weight and toned, NOW! And others that basically says that you are fit and sexy when you’re belly is as flat as an ironing board and when you shed that fat in your body. They actually promote self –acceptance and freedom to do what you want not because that is what society’s standards told you to do.
These magazines are sold in the market and are accessible whenever you wanted. No one can force you to do what’s in the magazine if you don’t feel like doing it. What is important is for you to feel good about yourself no matter what your looks may be. Remember, that beauty from within is what matters most. The Women’s Health is here to guide you but if you feel to have it your way, you may.
