body positive movement

Have you embraced body positivity? Are you improving the way that you feel with each passing day? While we all want to be more body positive, it can be hard to get it right. Years of conditioning and negative thought patterns can’t be undone in an instant. With that in mind, you may want some guidelines to help you move forward.

Here are the golden rules to follow to help you on your journey:

1.  Nobody else defines your body image

Cruelty is often times hard to ignore. If you’ve ever experienced body shaming from others, you will know this to be true. However, when you’re on a journey toward body positivity, there’s one thing that you always have to keep in mind. Nobody else out there has the right to define you or your body image. It’s that simple. It doesn’t matter what other people say or how they feel. Your body is exactly that – yours. You must not let anybody else take that away from you. The only thing that matters is how you feel about it.

2.  Self-care is a priority

Do you make time for self-care? If you have to think about the answer to this question, then chances are that you’re not making enough time for self-care. Self-care and self-love should be at the top of your priority list. It could be something as small as making more time for you to relax each evening or simply taking an extra long bath now and then. Making space for your own feelings and looking after yourself is a major factor in how you feel. After all, if you don’t give yourself some much-needed love and affection, how can you give it to someone else?

3.  Your body always deserves respect

Your body deserves respect. Period. It deserves respect from you and it deserves respect from other people. This is not a luxury or an added extra. It’s something that you need to demand. If you ever catch yourself thinking negative thoughts about your body or how it looks, you need to stop and rethink everything. You should always aim to give your body the love and treatment that it needs on a daily basis.

4.  Exercise for health

Exercise is a core part of a healthy and balanced lifestyle! However, when you hit the treadmill or head out for a cycle, you need to make sure that you’re doing it for all the right reasons. You should not be exercising like crazy in a bid to lose weight. That is not good for you mentally or physically. Instead, you need to ensure that you work out so that you are healthy, happy, and fulfilled. Get out there and find an activity that sparks joy for you. Doing so could be a real life-changer.

5.  There’s no such thing as a ‘bad’ body

Being critical of either your own or other people’s bodies is a toxic habit. It’s one that you have to break so that you can move forward and become a happier person. Learn this following rule by heart – there is no such thing as a ‘bad’ body. Your body is absolutely perfect the way that it is. You are blessed with many things and your body is one of them. For that reason, you need to take the time to appreciate and take good care of it each and every day.

6.  Accept yourself exactly as you are

Self-acceptance might just be the greatest example of self-love out there. When you learn to truly accept yourself as you are, it makes a massive difference to the way that you feel about yourself and your body. Of course, this won’t happen overnight. It’s something that you need to work on each day. You might want to journal your thoughts or start learning a few body positive mantras to help you along the way. Do whatever you have to do to reach a place of acceptance, love, and freedom. You owe that much to yourself.

Are you feeling ready to embrace the golden rules of body positivity? As with all important things in life, this one will take work and effort on your part. However, when you start to become more positive and embrace who you are, it will kickstart a beautiful change in your life. Learn these rules and perhaps even add some of your own as well.
