Most of us can think of a time when we thought a new haircut, diet, or lipstick would turn everything around for us. But that mindset can lead to a lot of wasted time and money. Poor body image can lead to crash dieting and excessive exercise, which can, in turn, lead to poor nutrition, injuries, and depression.
When you are continually distracted with physical appearance, the energy of your mind, body, and spirit is diverted from more salient endeavours.A more positive body image can help you in all of your roles. Improve your role as a mother by teaching your children how to love their bodies. Improve your physical health.
Make small changes. Enforce changes on a smaller scale.
Use Positive affirmations. Once you get yourself out of the negativity rut, you`ll feel better about yourself, and you`ll better understand your power to create and maintain a healthier mind, body, and spirit.
Focus on Health.Food is fuel for active living. Ask yourself if your diet contributes - or takes away from - your health and energy levels. When we stop focusing on our bodies, and begin to focus on our health, our bodies have an easier time finding our optimal weight.
Regular exercise creates power and endurance, which can help you enjoy more activities. Find an exercise you enjoy. If you hate aerobics, don`t join an aerobics class. Try exercises you`ve never tried before. Is there an exercise that makes you feel `good` and `happy`? Do that .
Your body is your best friend. Respect it as such.
