body positive movement

As the new year looms, it’s time to take stock of things. Have you had a great year? How is your body positivity? Do you love yourself like you should? These are all questions you need to ask. If you’re not certain where to start, let’s take a look at a quick checklist.

Here are eight different signs that your #BoPo game is on point:

1.  You look forward to dressing each day

Each morning, when that annoying little alarm starts to ring, you wake up ready for the day. It’s time to get up, wash, and get dressed. To tell the truth, this is one of the best parts of your day. You fling open your closet and take a look at all the clothing options you have. Getting dressed up and making yourself feel wonderful is how you start each and every morning. You wouldn’t have it any other way.

2.  You’re not in the habit of weighing yourself

When was the last time you weighed yourself? When you start to get your body positivity game right, you no longer have to worry about this problem. If you feel healthy, you don’t have to obsess about the numbers on the scales. They are just that – numbers. Nothing more, nothing less. You know that so long as you eat well and stay active, you don’t have a problem with your body size or shape. It’s that simple.

3.  You remember the compliments you get

Off the top of your head, can you recall what the last compliment you got was? When you’re comfortable with yourself, these are the small things that leave a lasting impression. Believe it or not, people probably say complimentary things about you all of the time. When you start to remember these off-hand comments, they are sure to help you to boost your relationship with your body image. Why not start making a mental note of them?

4.  You’ve cut back on social media

Social media can be fun but it can also be toxic. If you go online to find out whether people are doing better than you or whether they look better than you do, you could be doing yourself more harm than good. It’s time to switch things up. Spending less time on social media on a day-to-day basis is a great way to up your self-care. Why not get started today and see how much better you begin to feel?

5.  You stand tall when you walk into a room

When you walk into a room, how is your overall posture? If you cower and shy away, it tells the world that you don’t want anybody to look at you at all. However, if you stand tall with your shoulders back and your head held high, it sends out the opposite message. This brave stance tells people that you are proud of who you are and the way that you look. It invites them to look at you for all the right reasons.

6.  You have a healthy relationship with food

How is your relationship with food? If you restrict yourself from eating certain things or are constantly dieting, that’s a major problem. It’s not healthy. When you love yourself and your health, you understand that food is not the enemy. Eating well and enjoying the type of food that you crave shows that you are happy and content with food. That means not overeating but not starving yourself either. Eat when you’re hungry and give your body what it needs the most. Easy.

7.  You seldom think negative thoughts

Do you think negative things about your body all of the time? Sometimes, we’re all guilty of this serious sin. It’s an easy trap to fall into, but you want to avoid it at all costs. When you catch yourself being overly negative, change the conversation. Start thinking about all the positive things that you have in your life and consider why you should be pleased with yourself. It might take a little bit of practice at first, but you will soon get used to this habit.

8.  You are proud of yourself and your body

Every single woman out there deserves to feel proud of herself and her body. When you look in the mirror, what do you see? Are you happy with your reflection? Can you see how attractive and beautiful you are? When your body positivity is on point, the answer will always be yes. Rather than picking your looks apart, you need to appreciate yourself the way that you are. Now, say it with me, you are absolutely gorgeous!
