The Pressure to Love Your Body

As many people that are telling you to lose weight and be skinny there are just as many people that are telling you to love your body. It can feel like you are being pressured equally by both sides and confused as to which way to go. I am a firm believer in loving yourself and your body, however, I understand that it can be extremely hard to do so for some. What you must understand is that you didn't wake up one day hating yourself, it happened over time and the same will happen for you to love yourself.

Everyday is an opportunity to take another step toward loving your body. Here is a few things you can do to help you on your journey to a more positive body image.

  • Every morning look in a mirror and tell yourself you are beautiful.
  • Write body positive affirmations in places you look at regularly.
  • Follow body positive blogs, twitters and facebook pages.
  • Distance yourself from negative people as much as possible.
  • Look in a mirror naked often to understand your body more.

These tips can help you take those steps to a happier you. Remember it may not happen over night and that is ok. Just take it one day at a time and everything will fall into place.
