Love Your Body, Now!
Do you love your body? Why or why not?
It’s a big, reflective question to ask yourself. Most of us could probably come up with some things we’d like to change.
Though poor body image isn’t isolated to women, the statistics show that it’s certainly a global issue for females of all ages. And with the prevalence of photoshopped ads and media all around us, it’s no wonder we haven’t learned to love our natural, varied bodies.
But that doesn’t mean we can’t begin to do just that!
Make body-love a daily practice.
If you’re in the habit of thinking and feeling negatively towards your body, listen up.
Breaking habits and forming new ones isn’t impossible. It just takes time, practice, and perseverance. By committing to a few minutes of body-love practices a day, you can chip away at those hard-wired, negative thinking patterns
Need some ideas?
Spend a few minutes in front of the mirror and repeat a loving phrase to yourself—e.g. “I am lucky to be alive in this body” or “I am worthy of love, just the way I am.”
Give yourself a hug! Seriously. It feels good.
Make time for pampering: give yourself a foot massage, dry-brush your skin, and enjoy mindful skin moisturising.
