Body positivity is a celebration of all body types and sizes, accepting your body, appreciating all that your body does, and loving yourself. Some also see this as a focus inward on a person’s strengths, thoughts, and actions, instead of what they look like and how much they weigh. Body positivity is also a social movement which has effected:
- The way beauty competitions are run (removing bikini contests).
- The way magazine covers are written (no more language like “drop two sizes”).
- Even a change in modeling photography (less airbrushing).
How are some ways you can become more body positive? Many have found that encouraging one another, telling yourself that you are awesome, and healthy eating and fitness are all ways to promote body positivity. It is an individualized approach so each person should take the steps toward body positivity that make the most sense for them!
Every morning when you wake up and get ready for your day, tell yourself any or all of the following and be mindful about these words.
- I’m Awesome.
- I’m Pretty.
- I’m Healthy.
- I’m Beautiful.
- I Love Myself.
