is much, much easier said than done. Women are faced with so many
pressures that accepting themselves is sometimes the most difficult
thing to do. You might be able to juggle a busy lifestyle with
great success but when it comes to feeling good about how you look,
you’re a complete basket case. That’s okay, because
it’s normal. But it’s not the most healthy way to go
Start accepting your body by building your self esteem. Self esteem
is linked very closely with body image. Women with high self esteem
who are confident in all aspects of their lives often have healthier
body images than women with low self esteem. Find out what makes
you proud, it can be your career, your family, your athleticism
or your artistic ability. Whatever that is, gloat in it a little.
If this self-esteem booster doesn’t pervade over into your
body image, seek out other ways to build your self esteem. There
might be an outside factor in your life that’s bringing your
self esteem down. Sometimes, you might need to talk to a close
friend or a therapist about building your self esteem.
When you lead a healthy lifestyle, you’ll be surprised at
how that mindset affects the other aspects of your life. Keep up
with your nutrition basics and incorporate regular exercise into
your daily routine. These factors will improve your body, but they
will also improve the way you feel about yourself. If you’re
working toward improving your health, you will feel proud, and
this will be reflected in your self esteem. When you’re focusing
on health, keep in mind: healthy does not mean skinny.
Focus on the positive, don’t dwell on the negative. If you
remember there are things about your body that you like, then keep
these aspects always in mind. Instead of fretting about the dimple
on your thighs, flaunt the gleam in your eyes and see if that doesn’t
make you feel a bit better the next time you get a glimpse in the
mirror. If you keep a positive mindset, you might just find yourself
loving your flaws after a while.
