We have looked at a couple of ways to help create a positive body image. As mentioned in an earlier post, we can appreciate our body for what it can do for us and learn not to compare ourselves to others, particularly in the media
It is important to think healthy not skinny. It is a misconception that skinny is healthy.
Wear clothing that you feel good when you wear them.
Make an effort to focus on all of the positive aspects of your body and watch for negative self talk. For example, you may complain that your calves are fat because knee-high boots are too tight. Rather remind yourself that your legs are strong with developed calf muscles.
We can change our negative self talk and accentuate the positive.
Appreciate your attributes and remember your body does not define you!
