I want to talk about a “feel-good” topic that’s finally becoming a mainstream trend.
It’s BODY POSITIVITY … which basically means loving your body right this very minute – without any ifs, ands, or buts.
Because, frankly, your body is a miracle!
It deserves your care and respect because it works so hard to support you each and every day.
I see SO many women struggle with this – and it’s something incredibly important … and not always that easy to talk about.
Your feelings about your body can get mixed up with how you feel about YOURSELF: your talents, your strengths, your personality, and your spirit.
And when you feel negative about your body, that can translate into feelings of general negativity and low self-esteem. I think we’ve all felt that at one point or another.
At times, I struggle with my own negative feelings about my body. It doesn’t fit into the smaller clothes it once did, it isn’t toned like it once was, my hair has so much grey…I can nitpick and find something “wrong”. Most of it is centered around not being the same as I was before. But, our bodies are meant to change as we grow older. The are factors that can affect how the body changes. For example, having a hysterectomy will change your hormones, which can affect your body shape and where and how it stores fat.
And the worst thing is, those feelings can affect whether or not you keep working towards your goals and how well you take care of yourself.
Here’s the irony: when you start taking care of yourself and working towards your goals, the negativity and low-self esteem will start to shift into CONFIDENCE and a more positive view about your body.
It helps you to SHOW UP for yourself. You’ll start to treat yourself the way you’d treat any other person you love and admire.
It just takes a few brave steps in a positive direction.
When you believe in yourself, you DO THE THINGS YOU SAY YOU’RE GOING TO DO.
You show up for yourself, put in the work, meet your challenges, and get those WINS!
Remember: “body positivity” may be a trendy buzzword, but taking great care of your body is always in style.
So, let’s focus on taking intentional steps toward our goals.
Is that a deal?
