Top tips for improving your body image

Moms know that kids are like sponges, absorbing everything we say and do. Therefore, your attitude towards your body and health also affects the way your children think towards these things.

Here are our top tips for improving your body image if you, like most women, dislike some of the things you see in the mirror.

Are you being realistic? Don’t fall victim to unrealistic social and cultural ideals about women’s bodies that have us all feeling like we don’t quite measure up

Change your perception: Perception is reality. Change your thoughts. Yes, stop all the negative, self-disparaging remarks. It does you no good and will put you in dark places where nobody will see you.

Stop looking for attention: Seeking attention and then getting it isn’t the way to feel good. Ooze self-assurance and the compliments will come in due time; there’s nothing better than an unexpected vote of confidence.

Say it out loud: There are better things to talk about that can actually result in you walking away from a conversation feeling great about yourself. Let go of the pity party and instead encourage the art of saying out loud what you love about yourselves and each other.

Grab the Post-its: It might take a while to change your mindset, so to help grab some Post-its and write words of motivation for yourself.

Treat yourself as you would a friend: When you speak to yourself take a step back to analyse the words. Would you say that to your best friend? Would you speak to him/her in that manner? Speak to yourself with respect and hold yourself up to a better standard.
