Did you know that in some countries up to 81 percent of women are dissatisfied with their bodies? Women all over the world struggle with feeling comfortable in their bodies and at peace in their skin, profoundly affecting how they live their lives and show up in the world. The worst part is that they don’t even know it’s possible to feel differently.
So many women become wrapped up in how their body looks, and in their quest to achieve the way that they believe it’s supposed to look, that they lose sight of the fact that they have so much more to offer this world.
This is conveyed through the various streams of media and social media is the worst perpetrator of this
There is no denying that exercise and great nutrition can be fun, and that’s great! It’s important to be healthy and feel your best, but there is also so much more to enjoy in life than planning your workout schedule, prepping and packing meals, and logging it all — especially if you are working toward creating peace with your body.
Your words are powerful. They bring your thoughts and beliefs to life. If you are committed to changing your mindset about your body, start by noticing how you speak about your body, and then give it everything you’ve got to refrain from using negative language. Do your best to refrain from complaining about, or apologizing for your appearance or your body
You are the sum of all of your parts — your heart, soul, brain, muscles, and bones. You are the experiences that you’ve had, the lessons you’ve learned, the emotions you’ve felt, the wisdom you carry, and the love you’ve given and received. You are far too powerful and amazing to distill yourself down to merely your physical appearance.
