Boosting Your Body Image

Boosting Your Body Image

As a woman (or a man ) we have a body image that the public thinks is prefect. We must remember being skinny doesn't mean you are healthy.

We tend to be our harshest critics. We compare ourselves against the bodies of others and judge ourselves for not measuring up to our ideals. In doing so, we can do a number on our self-confidence. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to be healthier or desiring to achieve a certain look, but don’t beat yourself up on your journey there.

It’s time we start loving ourselves, and our bodies more.

Get Rid of the Negative Nancys…

When you start to feel better about yourself, some people around you might not be comfortable with your new attitude (or look) and they could start to get a little…mean. If these people are meaningful to you, we don’t recommend dismissing them out of your life entirely, but if you can, try to distance yourself from them or chat with them about why they need to stop.

Make a List of Positive Things

Write down at least 10 things you like about your body and who you are. This could include your eyes, the silver streak in your hair, your strong calves, your kindness, or your sense of humor. Then take a picture of the list with your phone and save it so you every time you’re feeling not so hot, you can take a look at it.

Focus on Improvement

When it comes to your body, focusing on what you think is a problem area is just going to make you feel worse. Once you’ve acknowledged what you want to work on, focus on ways to improve and what you’ve accomplished so far.

Find People Who Motivate You

There are so many people out there who are inspirational. Follow them on Instagram, Facebook,,, where ever! Feed off their positivity and let them motivate you. You probably even have some positive people in your life, get out there and spend more time with them!


If you’re finding yourself heading towards an emotional ditch, get moving. Stat. Go for a walk, Press Play on a Beachbody workout, just move. Doing so will help the endorphins kick in and help your brain get back on the right path.

Talk to Yourself

This one might feel a little hokey, but especially if you’ve been engaging in negative self-talk (“My stomach is too big,” “my nose is ugly,” “I don’t like the size of my hands,” etc.) it’s important. The next time you look in the mirror, I want you to say (or at least think) something positive about your body or your features. Can’t think of anything positive? Fake it until you make it. Even though it doesn’t feel genuine, forcing yourself to be positive will get your brain moving in a healthier direction.

Wear Clothes That Accentuate Your Shape

Wearing baggy clothes can make you look bigger than you are. Instead, dress in ways that flatter your body type. Find tips on And, ladies, make sure to get a bra that fits properly. An ill-fitting bra can make even the best outfit look less than stellar.
