❤️Self Love❤️ Today as I sit here on my period struggling with how much water I’m holding on to, and how bloated I get. I wanted to talk about how to accept and love yourself at any point in your journey and accept your body as it is now. This is something I still struggle with 😪 but I do have a few tips to get out of the mindset of I hate how my body looks right now, and I’d like to share them.
1.) if I am really having a bad body image day, and can’t get the negative thoughts out of my head I will just try to forget about it. The best way to stop thinking the negative thoughts is just to put on some comfy clothes turn off your phone and just do something you enjoy like read a book, draw, go for a walk. I really do believe in out of sight out of mind it can be really helpful for your mental state to just ignore your body and your negative thoughts toward your body for a while.
2.) Another thing I will do is wear flattering clothes and do something to pamper myself. In this picture my body wasn’t exactly where I wanted it to be, but instead of dwelling on that I got a dress I knew would flatter my figure and did my makeup how I like it and I didn’t think about how I wasn’t 100% happy with where my body was all night, in fact I felt super confident like more confident than I’ve ever felt in my whole life! Wearing clothes that look good on you makes a huge difference and makes it easier to love your body now.
3.) My last tip is to start saying every day some affirmations to yourself and your body. Start talking about the things you love about yourself for instance your hair, eyes or butt! It’s not vain or conceited to love parts of yourself and say that you do. Also just saying everyday out loud “I love my body, it deserves to be taken care of” or something along those lines. ✨Because the bottom line is you are valuable and have so much worth and no matter your body you are worthy of self care and love! 💕 😊❤️
