Body Positivity

Body Positivity

Hey, friends! 

    When you look at yourself in the mirror, what do you see? Many see what they want to change or their imperfections. We become insecure of what we look like or try to change what cannot. Our bodies are our temples, we take care of our temple. Yet, why do we become insecure of how much weight we gain. Let me tell you it happens to EVERYONE. Everyone wants to be skinny, that’s like society’s normal body.But in fact we come in all shapes and sizes. Everyone is DIFFERENT. Here are some ways to love and accept your body as it is:

  • Appreciate all the things your body can do – keeping you ALIVE
  • Accept your body type – accept those little moles in your arms
  • Care for your body so that it can care for you
  • Dare to not compare your body – everyone is different 
  • Let go of weight loss worries – eat whatever you want
  • Focus on what helps you feel good – surrounding yourself with new people
  • Find the right routine for you – do something new everyday 
  • STOP judging other people’s bodies – you deserve to be loved and accepted so should everyone else
  • Do something that makes your body feel good every day – take a warm bath
  • Make exercise about feeling good – you don’t need to do weights to lose weight, try dance workouts 
  • Build a closet that fits to you – find your RIGHT size
  • Feed your body good stuff – like vitamins
  • Force yourself to think positive – there is no room for negativity only positivity 
  • Your body is ENOUGH – you are beautiful just the way you are

Always remember that you are enough. You don’t need to prove anything to anyone because you are perfect just the way you are. Treat your body like a temple.
