Mind over Body Image

How you feel about your body has a lot to do with the state of your mindset and vice versa. This doesn’t mean you have to be super skinny or meet anyone else’s expectations. It means that you need to accept and feel happy with yourself just as you are.

Sure, you can set yourself goals to shape up and get healthier – it’s always good to improve your fitness. 

You can increase your self-image by accepting where you are now and setting clear and specific goals of where you would like to be in the future. How would you ideally like to look, weigh and feel?  

Try these steps:

  1. Accept yourself. Accept yourself for who you are and know that it is good. If you look in the mirror and hear the voice inside your head saying negative things about you, change the subject to something positive. You're a beautiful being and you should love yourself. 
  1. Avoid comparing yourself to others. It's so easy to get caught up in comparing yourself to your friends and the models in the magazines. Everyone is different! We all have our own strengths and weaknesses, so make the most of what you've got! 
  1. Accept others. Learning to accept others helps you more easily accept yourself. Pass out sincere compliments to others. If you're too harsh on others you tend to be too harsh on yourself as well. 
  1. Make an attainable goal. If you do fall into an overweight or obese category, make an attainable weight loss goal for yourself. Focus on areas that you can improve, like portion size or exercise routines. Don't judge yourself critically or expect yourself to lose weight too fast. 
  1. Ask for help. If you're struggling with body image issues and the other tips don't seem to be working, it's a good idea to seek out a support system. Confide your true feelings to your family and friends and ask them to make you accountable. 

 Try this for a Positive Mindset:

One thing you can do to help develop a positive body image is to get in the habit of reading and writing affirmations each day. Affirmations are short positive statements that you can repeat when necessary or write out for yourself to post in areas where you'll see them several times every day.

Focus on your positive attributes. If you have beautiful eyes, post yourself a reminder about your beautiful eyes near the bathroom mirror. You might be struggling with weight loss goals, but you still have your beautiful eyes. When you hold onto a positive feeling, it gives you a drive and a glimmer of hope. This positive attitude will make it easier for you to reach your goals!
