5 reasons why you should love your body
No one can deny that we live in a society where our looks are constantly scrutinised. Glossy magazines, TV shows and ads bombard us with information about ways to quickly lose weight and achieve perfect bodies. Countless airbrushed photos of celebrities and supermodels make us believe that we won’t be good enough until we get killer abs and skinnier legs.
I don’t know about you but I’m tired of diets. We only have one body so we need to celebrate it. Instead of torturing ourselves in the pursuit of that ‘perfect’ magazine body, we need to show ourselves some love and appreciate our body’s strength and beauty.
You only have one body
Your body performs so many different functions. When you love your body and care for it, it loves and respects you back.
Your loved ones love you the way you are
We often make ourselves believe that our families, partners etc. will love us more if we lose weight. It’s not true. Those who care about you love you no matter what your weight or body size is.
You’re perfect just the way you are
You may not have a thigh gap but who cares? Embrace your body and celebrate your beauty.
Your body will change over time
We can take care of our bodies but we can’t stop the aging process.
There is someone out there who wants to have your body
While you’re transfixed on trying to look like someone else, there is someone out there who wishes they could have your legs, killer bum or boobs.
Remember that beauty comes in all sizes, shapes and forms. You’re beautiful just the way you are.
