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 #63
Today we will talk about body positivity. Diet culture has confused people on the idea of what it means to be fit and healthy because the primary goal of diet culture is weight loss. Therefore when we think of exercise, we just think fo weight loss. Instead fitness should be about moving our bodies and feeling energised. We need to find a healthier way of thinking about fitness that will cover mental and physical health to hopefully making you feel better about moving your body. Most of us have been teased about our body types and as a result we are always conscious about fitness and diet goals. Top it up with diet culture propaganda where they say that in few weeks you can get the body you have always dreamt of by either buying their video or opting their program. And then when you don’t lose pounds we get discouraged and worse we feel bad about ourselves for not being able to achieve that goal and take a hit on our self confidence. Don’t..no Don’t you dare, stop..you are valued, you are loved exactly the way you are. If someone can’t appreciate you for all your curved and edges, then they don’t deserve you.
Come back tomorrow for more inspiration on body positivity.
