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 #61

Today we will continue to talk about intuitive eating. Diet culture has made us believe that we cannot trust our own damn bodies. It has made us fearful about food and that is why people are intrigued by intuitive eating because it is healthy mentally and physically. A lot of people when they see some picture of an obese person they directly have unhealthy judgements about the person. The person may have a medical condition which has made them obese, nobody thinks that. So it is really hard when diet culture equates the slimmer you are the healthier mindset. Diet culture uses that against us when we are vulnerable and we want to lose weight and then they try to make you feel guilty about eating foods that you like and I don’t think that is right and I feel that you have the right to trust your body, eat foods you like and want and respecting your stomach when you are full and not overeating which is healthy. The goal of everything is to live life how you want it and not give in the propaganda that you are not good enough. Stay focused on what is important to you.

Hope this helped and you liked the posts on intuitive eating. Come back tomorrow to learn about body positivity.

  1. Great tips! Another way to practice self love is to go out on a walk, away from the crowd and close to nature!

      Thank you Carol. I like writing on these topics considering there is so much of mis-communication and mis interpretation out in the world.

    Soso true! I have issues with people assuming that I’m young and look healthy that I’m fine. But inside my body is attacking itself (I have an autoimmune disease)

      Exactly, we often have this fight within ourselves which is totally unnecessary. The key is to identify them and be aware of our repeated thought patterns.

      Glad you liked the concept and post Pragsy2. Body positivity refers to the assertion that all people deserve to have a positive body image, regardless of how society and popular culture view ideal shape, size, and appearance. Helping people build confidence and acceptance of their own bodies and addressing unrealistic body standards is so important.
