When you look in the mirror what do you see? Do you see the beautiful woman that your friends and family regard you as? Or do you see something else entirely? Women of all ages are often dissatisfied with that they see looking back at them in the mirror. This can cause low self-esteem and force them to take drastic measures when it comes to their appearance. Instead of
seeing how amazing they are, they tend to focus purely on what they deem as imperfections.
However, once you start accepting your body and these so-called imperfections, your entire life can change for the better.
Try these three techniques and
start loving yourself just the way you are today.
AMAZING YOUR BODY IS
A SUPPORTIVE FRIEND
We all have negative feelings towards our body from time to time. We may be fixated on how it looks but many of us take for granted all of the incredible things it does for us. From being able to see to tasting delicious food, we have a lot to thank our body for. So when you start thinking about how much you hate your things or arms, name something that you love about your body instead. This will help to alter your mindset and banish these thoughts of negativity from your mind. Start giving your body the care and attention it needs and it shouldn’t take long for you to start seeing how amazing it is.
If you are feeling down about your appearance, always talk to someone about it. Discuss how you feel with a supportive friend or family member, either face to face or via email. Sometimes it can be easier to write down how you are feeling rather than speaking about it openly. These discussions aren’t always the easiest. But keeping your emotions locked up can make you feel worse. Your friend might be able to offer their advice and support during this difficult time. They may even have had similar feelings themselves that they can talk to you about. This could provide you with a different perspective and make you feel more positively about yourself. It will also show you that you are not the only person dealing with emotions which can provide immense comfort.
Don’t act on impulse
Fully embracing your imperfections and changing the way you perceive yourself may take time. But making the decision to change your mindset is a positive and crucial first step.
