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 #62
Today we will talk about body positivity. A lot of people have this question whether you can have both fitness and weight loss goals at the same time and still remain body positive. The answer is both yes and no. This is biggest controversy with body positivity. People do not truly understand what body positivity is. So things are said like, “You are promoting obesity”, “You are promoting unhealthy behaviours”, and I personally hate this one, “You should not be content with themselves”. I am only shocked when I hear these comments is because people are so stuck with diet culture mentality and are truly & literally judgemental and stereotypical and most of these people also think that their self worth and value is tied to their weight. Why? Everyone should be “content” with who they are now. I put “content” in air quotes because people don’t know how to love who they are right now in the present moment. Your shouldn’t have to start living life when you have lost the weight or accomplished fitness goals. Part of truly living is living in the moment and enjoying the process.
