Do not be discouraged if you have experienced this. Here are five inspirational confidence and body positive tips to help you.
Be at Peace With your Appearance
If you are not happy with the way you look now, you won’t become satisfied with yourself magically when you achieve your goals. You need to make firm decisions about your body. If that decision includes shading a few pounds, you do not need to explain your reasons to anyone but yourself. Although it usually takes a long time to reach the point you desire, you need to understand the fact that nothing is wrong with your body.
You need to believe that you are much more than your appearance and that the beauty standards in our society today are oppressive. You are amazing and beautiful just the way you are. Your body does not speak for you. Neither does it owe anyone explanation.
Ignore Criticism From Others Regarding your Appearance
Even if it isn’t directed at you, judgmental remarks about your appearance can still affect your self-confidence. These remarks make you critical of your body instead of loving it. So you need to ignore or distance yourself from such comments. This means you need to keep your distance from individuals with negative personalities.
Treat yourself Right
Take yourself to a treat. If you want to stay body positive, take care of your body at every opportunity. Go for a bubble bath, or a manicure. You can take a long nap so as to give your body and mind some time to recover. If your hair and skin needs work, get your desired hairdo or facial at the salon. Treat yourself to anything that gives you pleasure.
Give yourself Fitness Goals That are Not Related to Appearance
Forget about the measuring tape and/or scale. If all you are always focused on your looks in this manner, you will become disappointed with your body when it doesn’t match what you see or read on magazines and television. Fitness is an excellent way to feel strong if you are not forcing or tearing yourself apart. Seeing your body accomplish the fitness goals you set will make you proud and confident. Stay on track when it comes to reaching your fitness goals by keeping records of your progress.
Appreciate the Beauty in Others
In order to see the beauty in yourself, you need to start seeing it in others first. From our childhood, we are conditioned to link certain types of traits with goodness and others with badness. We may see someone who is plus-sized and subconsciously assume they are lazy people. These assumptions are wrong. It is a discouraging line of taught. Try your best to hold judgment from any individual. Try to focus on their positive traits. And before you know it you start to appreciate others, and you feel body positive.
