When we compare ourselves to others, our body image can suffer. Learning to love your body can be a tough process but it is never too late to change your outlook and be proud of who you are, flaws and all. It is very important to concentrate on body positivity. When you are able to reframe the way you look at yourself and feel comfortable in your own skin, you will feel be better. Here are four ways you can learn to love your body:
Love Yourself First
Learn to love yourself for who you are. When you look in the mirror, you should be able to smile at what you see. When you are able to see the perfection in your so-called “imperfections” you will be at peace with yourself. Give yourself the respect and care you deserve and you will find that the habits needed for physical transformation will develop naturally.
Focus On Your Health
What does healthy mean to you? Focus less on the ‘ideal’ body portrayals in the media and spend more time discerning what makes you feel healthy. Nourish your body with foods that make you feel your best and approach diet and exercise as something that you are doing for yourself.
Treat Yourself With Respect
Self-hatred is unproductive. Treat yourself with the respect you deserve by releasing negative thoughts and making positive daily affirmations. If you train your thought process to be more positive, you will feel motivated, nurtured and loved.
Don’t obsess over the ‘perfect body.’ Focus on your body and the good that it brings you every day. It doesn’t matter if you can’t fit into that dress yet, focus on what is going right and this will motivate you to do more.
