Welcome to the Daily Dose of Self Love. This series will be about self love, self care, self esteem and self worth. Basically everything related with SELF. My aim with this series is to give you a daily boost of self love and self care. We all get busy with our lives and sometimes it leaves us less or no time to take time for ourselves, be with ourselves, wash off all the negativity that we accumulated during the day with self love, meditation, etc. The daily boost will be in an easy to understand and more importantly something which is relatable. So Welcome!!
Self Love Practice Tip #44
In today’s post we will talk about the diet culture. Here’s a quote from Naomi Wolf, who is the author of the “Beauty Myth” book which explains about what diet culture is, “A culture fixated on female thinness is not an obsession with beauty, but an obsession about female obedience”. Dieting is culturally the most poetic sedative in women’s history. It quietly mars our population as an attractive one. This is an amazing definition of what diet culture is and all the negativity which is promoted behind it. It is just awful. It is the same crappy culture which comes with images of being perfect and having the right body type. Your self worth cannot be tied to the food choices you make. Celebrities who promote appetite suppressing products should be condemned. Do not follow such people or do what they say. It hits your mental health on top of your physical health. There are a lot of people who struggle with eating disorders. Celebrities who endorse such products are being unkind to the challenges and struggles of people who need genuine help. Why can’t people, specially women be concerned about changing the world? Be the change. You and yes you. You can be the start.
Hope this helped. Come back tomorrow for more self love inspiration.
