What exactly is the perfect body image? The Body Positive Movement is looking to answer that question. Whatever your size may be, having a positive outlook is key. SKIN-EEZ has long supported The Body Positive Movement. No more body bashing! Our concept is, be more in your skin, feel beautiful just the way you are.
We are exposed daily to images in the media of men and woman. The goal is to feel inspired, not ashamed. To feel liberated and set-free and not shackled by the images of what one person might think is beautiful. The most powerful message is the one that we deliver to ourselves daily. That message should always be body positive!
1) When you look at yourself in the mirror, look at yourself as a whole person.
You are not just one body part. Don’t waste your time focusing on that one part of yourself, because the world sees you as an entire person.
2) Take time out to appreciate all that your body does for you.
Walking, running, jumping, dancing, you name it. One of the best things to do is just stretch. It helps get your body ready for the next step and shows appreciation for all of the movement it makes during the day!
3) Beauty is a state-of-mind.
It all starts with positive thoughts about yourself. “Don’t say anything to yourself that you wouldn’t say to your best-friend.”
4) Speaking of best-friends, surround yourself with positive people.
When you are surrounded by loved ones that love you, and love themselves, it keeps your energy positive.
5) Wear clothes that are caring!
By caring, we mean comfortable and make you feel good. Some say who cares about fashion? Some might feel like the care too much! The important thing is to care for your body by wearing what feels good. That is why we came up with wearable skincare!
6) Take a little extra time to do something nice for yourself.
A trip to the spa or a new hairstyle can go a long way to feeling positive.
7) Create your own beauty story, and stop telling others.
So often we can find ourselves creating the perfect storyline for the images we see in the media. We need to continue writing the pages of our own!
8) Write a top ten list of things you like about yourself.
Trust us, it comes in handy on days where you might need a little extra boost.
9) Don’t tear yourself down.
When you find yourself being negative, refer back to your list of positive thoughts.
10) Love yourself first, and love will continue to come your way.
We remember our mothers telling us this. I am sure that our grandmothers told our mothers this. Loving yourself sounds easy, but in todays world filled with images and news feeds galore, it can be hard. Keep focused on the positive, beautiful!
