OMG! As if we don’t already have enough to feel self-conscious about when it comes to our appearance, now we have to be concerned about how we look when our face is at rest???? Apparently we have a new label, “Resting Bitch Face”? Really?

The Washington Post recently reported that Designer Victoria Beckham, singer Kayne West, actress Kristen Stewart, and the Queen of England, just to name a few, each have one…and that actress Anna Kendrick says she does, too. It’s called a “Resting Bitch Face”. Reportedly, it’s a face that tends to, when at rest, look annoyed judgey, bored, or full of contempt.

Oh, my….it has even been studied! Read about that study here, “Scientists have discovered what causes Resting Bitch Face”.

You should see the look on my face right now! Reading that article just made me feel more anxious…how about you?

I have worked in the Wellness Field for 30 years. I created an Emotional Eating & Binge Eating Disorder Recovery Program way before most people knew BED was an eating disorder, NOT a “willpower” issue. Personally, I suffered for years before finding answers and the help I needed and deserved! I became a Coach in 1997 to help others who were still suffering as I had. I love being a Coach!
