Here’s How Body Positivity Can Improve Your Life
How is your body positivity? Do you love yourself and treat yourself with the ultimate level of kindness? Sometimes we all let ourselves down in this area, but you can always turn things around. And there’s a good reason to do so. Believe it or not, your level of body positivity could be impacting the way that you feel about other areas of your life.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at the facts and how you can up your game.
How Your Body Image Affects Your Life
So, how does body positivity affect your life? Well, the way in which you see your body image is linked closely to your level of life satisfaction, according to recent research from Chapman University. The survey of more than 12,000 American adults focussed on key questions about people’s personality, their levels of self-esteem and their habits.
“Our study shows that men’s and women’s feelings about their weight and appearance play a major role in how satisfied they are with their lives overall,” explained David Frederick, Ph.D., assistant professor of psychology at Chapman University in a recent press release about the study. The results suggested that women who were happier with their appearance were more likely to have high levels of overall contentment.
Put simply, that means that the more content you are with your body, the happier you are likely to be in the rest of your life. Of course, there could be a wealth of reasons for this particular finding. It could be that people who are naturally prone to feeling more blissful may have fewer issues when it comes to confidence. However, another way to look at it could be that improving your body positivity will help you feel more joy.

How To Be More Body Positive
If you’re looking for ways in which to improve your body image and feel fabulous, you’ve come to the right place. While you’re not going to perfect this art form overnight, there are some small steps you can take, which will get you moving in the right direction.
Here are some simple yet effective tips that will help you along the way:
Avoid negative social media
While social media can be a positive tool, it can also bring you down. If you find that your self-esteem plummets when you open Instagram, you need to shake things up. Take note of who you’re following online and figure out the impact they have. Should certain people or accounts make you feel negative about yourself, stop following them.
Repeat #BoPo mantras
Want to boost your body image? Body positive mantras could be the way to do just that. Repeating positive statements to yourself on a daily basis could change the way that you think. Write down your favorite statements and start saying them whenever you get the chance. You might be surprised at the difference it makes to your body image.
Wear well-fitted clothes
The way that you dress can have a huge impact on the way that you see yourself. Ensure that you wear clothing that suits your shape and makes you feel like a million dollars. When it comes to the bra that you wear, you should make sure that it fits you perfectly. Dressing up in clothing that looks beautiful on you could be a positive step!
