HOW TO BUILD A POSITIVE BODY IMAGE

The image you have of yourself goes a long way in determining how far you go in life. What is a positive body image? Simply put, this shows how you feel about your self. Physically, mentally and otherwise which is connected to your emotions. How you act is a measure of how you feel. When a person has a positive body image, they understand that their sense of self-worth does not depend on their appearance. Having a positive body image includes: accepting and appreciating the whole of one’s body, including how it looks and what it can do.

HOW DO I BUILD A POSITIVE BODY IMAGE?

Below are some tips on building a positive body image.

1. Know your body: Like the saying goes ” if you know what you have, you will value it”. As an individual, you need to know your body more than any other person. Its strengths, abilities and capabilities. It will pave a way for you to appreciate yourself.
2. Avoid comparism: There should never be a need to compare yourself with others because comparison only brings disappointments and negative thought.
3.Show some appreciation:A good place to start is to be appreciative of what God has blessed you with. You will agree with me that what you often time despise about yourself, someone somewhere is desiring it.
4.Record the positives: Record what you have been able to achieve with your body. For example, a woman that despises her bulging tommy after giving birth should record the fact that the tommy carried another life for some months. Give yourself some accolades girl!
5.Commit to doing things that makes you feel good or can in any way improve your body look like exercising, dieting e.t.c.
6.Don’t be afraid of the mirror: Look yourself in the mirror and show appreciation. If you don’t appreciate yourself who will? Do not shy away from the mirror.
7. Remind yourself that true beauty entails both the interior and the exterior: Strive to develop your inner character deserving of praise or appreciation.
8. See yourself as a complete person: Do not focus on only the body parts you are not comfortable with. Other parts of you makes up the complete you.
9. Surround yourself with positive people: It is easier to feel good about yourself and your body when you are around others who are supportive and who knows the importance of appreciating oneself. Be with others who are appreciative of you irrespective of how you look.
