Photos Favorite Quote:Mens sana in corpore sano – A healthy mind in a healthy body About Me: Exercise addiction is caused by different things. Many eating disorders, like exercise addiction, are caused by psychological issues. For example, a person might be a perfectionist. Perfectionists think that nothing they do is ever good enough, and always try to please people. They often don’t know how to deal with their feelings. So, instead of coping in a healthful way, they turn to addictive behaviors like excessive exercise. Exercise addition can also be caused by family factors, like instability at home. It can be scary when a teen’s parents are getting divorced or they are facing abuse. They often feel like they have no control over what is happening to them. By exercising excessively, they are trying to regain a feeling of control over their lives.

Too much exercise damages the body instead of strengthening it. This is what a stress fracture looks like in a foot. Stress fractures are caused by too much exercise. Former Spice Girl Mel C has admitted to an exercise addiction. She is in recovery. Burning more than 3,500 calories a week doesn’t increase your fitness and can make you prone to injuries. People who are addicted to exercise base their self image on how much they work, not on how nice of a person they are. Responsible exercise has many health benefits, like better sleep, stress relief, and more energy.

Gleyre RenoirF. Bazille Claude Monet is glad to have started the Impressionist Movement and inspired abstract painters all over the world with my bright colors and focus on light. October 2, 1925 C. Doncieux Claude Monet I’m glad the cataract operation helped. I was nearly blind. I see a lot more blue in the world and less red, now that my eyes are healed. April 2, 1923 Claude Monet Working on a new painting: Impression, Sunrise. Doing a scene of the harbor at sunrise. I’m feeling great about it and think it might be a real winner. June 11, 1872 Renoir Great getting together with you, @FBazille & @A.Sisley! It’s awesome that our little group of Impressionists can paint together. October 28, 1869 Claude Monet Feeling really, really blue. So depressed. Thinking about committing suicide... September 9, 1868 C. Doncieux had a great time posing for you!

Personal Information facebook WallPhotosFlairBoxesClaude MonetLogout View photos of Claude Monet (5) Send Claude Monet a message Poke message Wall InfoPhotos Basic Information Information Photos Networks: Musee Marmottan Monet Sex: Male Birthday: November 14, 1840 Hometown: Paris, France Occupation: Impressionist Painter Education:Le Havre secondary school of the arts; Languages: French About Me:I’m one of the most influential Impressionist artist. I studied under a lot of other famous painters, but was probably most influenced by Manet. In the beginning, my work was very unusual because my focus on unconventional compositions and bold colors was a big change from the Realist style popular at the time. I love to watch the way light hits different objects and the way colors change depending on the sun and the time of day. I’m inspired by anything outdoors, but I especially love to garden. Water Lilies are one of my favorite things. My personal life hasn’t always been easy. I was very poor at points, and both my wives, Camille and Alice, died before me. I also lost my son, Jean. I hope I can inspire other painters to explore a more abstract style of work. Activities: Busy painting: Sunrise, Impression; Water Lilies; Oat and Poppy Field; Post-Goulphar; Charing Cross Bridge Interests: I love nature, esp. watching the light! Gardening is the best, too! Favorite Music: In the Light, by Led Zepplin (I’m all about anything with light!) Favorite TV Shows:Rebecca’s Garden (I’m always looking for inspiration for my own gardens) Favorite Books:The Master Book of the Water Garden (One of my favorites! I used it to get ideas for my own water gardens at Giverny).
