As women, we have to have criticism and unrealistic standards of beauty every single day.
Loving your body means knowing that the criticism comes from an unkind, unfair place.
It means knowing that you don’t have to sacrifice your happiness to be a few pounds lighter or fit into a certain pair of jeans.
If you’re feeling down on your body and aren’t happy with your reflection in the mirror, try these three tips to help you love your body again:
- Pick a positive daily affirmation to repeat to yourself every single day. Something as simple as “My body is beautiful” will do.
- Listen to hunger cues. If you’re hungry, eat something that will make you feel good.
- Don’t deprive yourself of the food that you love if it’s unhealthy – just have it in moderation.
I know, it can be so hard to love your body sometimes. But, you’ll find incredible happiness when you work what you’ve got!
