How Do You Learn to Love and Accept Your Body?

April 13, 2011

Change your mind, change your life

Honestly, learning to love your body is as simple as making the choice to love and accept your body, even on your off days.

When we self hate its because we are comparing ourselves to others or not taking care of ourselves properly.

The obvious answer would be to stop doing both. You will never look like anyone else but yourself but at least you can look your best self if you put in the time and effort to do so. That means exercising and eating right.

Its all down to choice

Choose to be the best you can be, choose to ignore the negative thoughts, choose to be grateful that you have all your working limbs and senses, that your body can take you to your place of work, that it can let you swim, run and be hugged.

Whenever you get a negative thought, think of three things you love about your body then go on with your day.

I hope this helped!  Do you have any other tips you can add to this?  Let us know in the comments! Dont be shy! 🙂

    What a great question, I feel most women face this problem at one point or another in their life. I really like Jessica Mullen’s post about being more aware of your thoughts and letting negative ones go. When she has a negative thought she visualizes taking that negative thought and putting it in a dirty gross old bucket and dumping that bucket from her head. Check out her post here: http://jessicamullen.com/2011/02/18/letting-go-of-stale-desires-and-negative-thoughts-with-visualization/
