In 1963, Helen Andelin wrote an inspiring book entitled 'Fascinating Womanhood'. Many thousands of women have found, that by putting into practice the principles outlined therein, they found amazing results in their marriages. This book, available on Amazon, is still transforming marriages today and I heartily recommend reading it if you have not done so. However, as with any book, there may be things with which you do not agree. Take the hay and leave the straw : )
But Mrs. Andelin's book was in fact, based on a series of smaller books, published much earlier in 1922. Here is the link that takes you to the originals. You cannot purchase these, only read online. Written by an author who wished to remain anonymous, they certainly make for 'fascinating' reading - although you may find some of the advice given a bit worldly and calculating.
Both the 1963 and the 1922 versions of Fascinating Womanhood, discuss in depth, 'The Ideal Woman from a Man's Point of View'. Radiant Health is very attractive and fascinating to a man! And, as you might guess, femininity rates up there alongside it.
Though it is difficult for a woman to believe, men are more attracted to and fascinated by these, than by the image of a beautiful face, body, or perfect features.
The Beauty of Radiant Health and Ladylike Manner
|Healthy shiny hair|
So if your goal is radiant health, but puffing and panting in ugly sportswear at the gym, or trying to keep up with the unwholesome and unladylike moves of a fitness DVD don't appeal to you, there are alternatives.
Leslie Sansone's range of Walk at Home dvds are my favourite way of walking off the pounds and creating Radiant Health. There are walks for everyone beginner to advanced, young or seniors.
Leslie also has 'Walk the walk' Christian orientated dvds,which I have not been able to get hold of here, but are available in the US. The above clips are just examples, you can find many more easily with an online search.
So, in the quiet afternoons, in the privacy of my sitting room (curtains closed), I wear a loose dress or petticoat, (no ugly jogging pants), I can work on my Radiant Health challenge in a ladylike way. All the while Leslie's cheerful encouragement keeps me upbeat and focused.
One other discovery that I have made on my quest, has been the benefits of using virgin coconut oil on my skin and hair.
An hour before washing your hair, warm a little coconut oil between your hands and massage it gently into the scalp and down the length of the hair. Wrap hair in a towel or tie it back for the hour (or overnight). Shampoo well and rinse. Your hair will be so soft and shiny afterwards. Apparently this also repairs and protects the roots of the hair, making it healthier, but you will have to do your own research about that one.
I would love to read of your ideas on this subject, ladies.
Have a Radiantly Healthy Day
