We only have one body and we are the only ones that have to live in it. Nobody else lives. Nobody else should get to say how we should feel or how we should look.
Only we can appreciate our bodies and feel what we can do for ourselves.
We should love our own body. I have read somewhere that 70% of women between the ages of 18-30 dislike their bodies and 45 % of men are dissatisfied with their body too. That is why if you are feeling low about your body, you are not alone.
There are so many people who are disliking their bodies for one reason or another. However, there are so many ways to develop our body as we wish for. if we want to lose weight, we have so many ways and find happiness on how our body looks.
Friends, today’s topic is how to be positive about our own body.
First we should change our mindset and with daily efforts, we can slowly but certainly find our goal achieved, whether keeping our teeth healthy by doing daily brushing, Or any other body problems . It’s not always a thrill ride. Some of the work might be boring sometimes, but that’s OK.
Think about everything your body allows you to do on a daily basis. This could be walking, breathing, or digesting the food you eat! These things may seem small, but they’re vital in keeping you alive, happy and healthy.
There are countless ways we can work on body positivity, and find out that works for us. We should remind ourselves that our body are gifts, not curses.
I usually woke up in the morning and start the day with positive affirmation.
This is one of the most basic and effective ways we can practice self-love is to speak loudly to be grateful for our bodies.
We use kind words to ourselves standing before the mirror. My today’s affirmation is
I am getting better and better every day.
Sometimes we may feel silly doing this. But it doesn’t mean that it’s not working. We should continue this. A little silliness won’t hurt us.
Think healthy & happiness:
As we know that healthy diet and daily exercise can shape our body.
Yes, instead of thinking about how much our body weighs, or how it’s shaped, We should think about all the amazing things that it can give us.
we should do it with a positive mindset. one thing I should like to add, excess of everything is bad. Do it as per body requirement and under supervision of a trainer.
Surround yourself with positivity:
This is the fact that negative messages about body image are available all around us and we also find negative posts about on social media.
They have the purpose of weaseling into our thoughts and enhancing our insecurities about perceptions.
According to one study, participants who spent more time on social media were more likely to develop a negative body image, and also develop eating disorders. So, we should try to cut out the negativity by minimizing the use of social media.
We should look for positive people, people who practice self-love, and people who will encourage us to be who we are .
Focus on the things that you like :
Every time a negative thought about our body pops into our mind. We should counter it with something positive thoughts.
I try to make list of the things that suit to our body rather than how it looks. We are generally inclined to look for our dissatisfactions by nature and overlook the good things. To break out of that way of hinking, we should practice upon the positive thinking on our body.
Stop comparing with others
Different People come in different shapes and sizes. One person is beautiful in one way, and the other person in some other way. Imagine how boring it would be if there were only one way to be, and to feel beautiful. Comparing ourselves with others can leave us feeling like don’t look the way we are. But why should we supposed to look like someone else, we should be supposed to look like what I am.
Cut out negative self-talk
You have been criticizing yourself for years and it has not worked. Try approving of yourself and see what happens…louise Hay
We should treat our body with the same kindness we use to treat a friend.
Negative self-talk only digs us deeper into body negative patterns of thinking. We should not expect any verbal abuse from anybody especially from ourselves.
Observe positive messages of Body
As we find always full of negative messages about body
We should balance that negative noise out with some good & positive perspectives. There is a lot of great literature out there about body image, and it will be of huge help keeping positivity within us.
we can read as well as we can listen to songs with body-positive messages through social media.
Do something nice for your body
Can We remember When was the last time we appreciate our body by just saying that — hey, my body, thanks for sticking with me?
Yes, Carve out some time to go lay in the grass with enthusiasm.
A walk up the hill to have a pretty view. Taking a good nap can also be a way to appreciate our body..
Focus on your whole personality
We should remember that we are much more than how we look !
A key piece of having a healthy body image is to stop fixating on our body.
We should try to spend more time thinking about things other than our physical appearance.
Yes, We should enjoy our passions and start a new hobby. Rush to movie with friends and we should try something new for soothing our mind and body. Our body isn’t just a decorative piece for looking, So, we should get out from any embarrassments and do the thing for living the joyful life.
Treat yourself and your body with a little more kindness. Ditch the negative self-talk. Nurture yourself, look after yourself. Stay Happy ….Stay Healthy ..
