Daily Dose of Self Love

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 #49

In today’s post we will continue to talk about the diet culture. Diet culture basically distracts women from contributing amazing things to this world. The diet culture wants us to think that we are not happy and they need us to feel that way because the diet and the beauty industry need to earn the profit from us. People spend more money in beauty than in education. We need to stop thinking that beauty is all a woman should be and die for. Teach the young girls to be more than their looks. It’s so superficial. Getting rid of the diet mentality culture is going to be tough. Its the same as learning to accept your body the way you are. Learn to accept your body as it is now (mine is with a little tummy out because I just ate my dinner). Our relationship with food is equally tough because as I said the media, beauty and diet industry are telling us that we cannot believe that we are okay with the weight we are at now. The age we are now is about “looking 10 years younger”, we celebrate someone who has lost weight more than someone who has achieved something at school. I mean where did we go wrong?

Hope this helped and I sincerely hope you will come back tomorrow for more self love inspiration. Till then here’s more on diet culture > https://empress2inspire.blog/2021/02/17/daily-dose-of-self-love-48/

  3. Having three daughters, I am proud of their attitudes toward themselves. All three participated in athletics which has given them a positive, confident way to see themselves.

      That is so heartening to know. In our society, our relationship with food is that it’s more than fuel; it’s often how we express ourselves and how we share our lives together. Food has its place in the foundation of relationships, whether we’re dining out for a first date or bringing a meal to a friend to celebrate a big event or mourn a loss. Given its importance, it’s vital that our relationship with food be a healthful one in order for us to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

    “Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear, but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious. For this is how the holy women who hoped in God used to adorn themselves.” ! Peter 3:3-4
    “Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.” Proverbs 31:30

      Beautiful. Food is often a reward for doing something good. Parents or grandparents bring the kids out for pizza after a good report card, and a party with a groaning buffet table signifies the end of a great sport season. We reward ourselves with a chai latte or a burrito for a job well done. When this is done occasionally, there is no problem — but if it becomes part of our routine, we could end up making unhealthy food choices in an effort to constantly satisfy ourselves. We don’t have a choice — we must eat. But by being mindful of our relationship with food and how we eat, we can enjoy our food healthfully.
