Learn to love your body with these tips
Stop hating your body for its tiny imperfections. Change the way you think with inspiration from these body-image and weight-loss bloggers who learned how to love the body they’re in.
- Be proud of your strong body
The first exercise is learning not to blame yourself when you are looking at you in the mirror. Don’t focus on your defaults, and focus on the parts of your face and your body that you like.
- Appreciate all the things that your body can do
In order to learn to love your body, you need to turn your focus from appearance to gratitude for everything your body is able to do, how fortunate you are to be able to run, to walk, to Zumba. A healthy and active body is a beautiful body.
- Realize that fitness is not about skinny jeans or skinny-girl stereotypes.
The true beauty is not about fitting into a cultural stereotype but a quality that shines from within. Start to look at yourself as a whole and realize all your qualities: intelligent, funny, unique, and yes, beautiful. It is better to spend time focusing on building a strong, healthy body and mind rather than trying to fit into a cookie-cutter mold, isn’t it?
- Dare to not compare your body.
If you compare yourself with other women in real life or worse, on Instagram, you will create a million reasons to hate your body. It will leave you with a feeling inadequate about your body, so please choose not to do it! Indeed, your body might not be perfect compared with a model, but it is the only body you will ever have. You would rather accept this fact and love your body the way it is than waste your time hating any part of it.
- Accept your body type
Accept your body type and don’t buy fashion items if it doesn’t fit well to your body! Then you will feel uncomfortable and feel bad in your body. It is not because it is fashion that you need it absolutely!
- Take care of your body
Take time to treat your body with a hair mask, apply moisturizer on your body after shower, cut your hair more often, etc. You will see how it feels good!
- Find the right sport for you
Your workout or run must not be a punishment. Find the right sport for you in order to enjoy it! Maybe it is Zumba, pilates or roller!
