1. Stop comparing yourself to others. This is a GREAT way to feel bad about yourself.
2. Do activities that make you feel beautiful: dance, run, praise yourself in the mirror, sing, whatever it is that makes you feel your best.
3. Think about what a miracle your body is. Can you smell? Can you taste? Can you run? Can you get yourself from one place to another? Then you have an AMAZING body. If you don’t think your body is a miracle, start to. Once you realize how lucky you are to have a functioning body, it’s pretty hard to hate on it.
4. Look back at past decades’ perceptions of the “ideal” of beauty. The “ideal” is a myth. It changes. If you aren’t thin as a stick that doesn’t mean you aren’t stunning. It means the fashion industry has decided that’s the trend for now. It will change. You are beautiful no matter what your shape is, so long as you are confident and healthy!
5. Keep in mind that a lot of people who have “ideal” bodies aren’t even satisfied. Many of these people can’t stop to appreciate their looks because they are so focused on perfection that they dwell on every flaw. Having the “ideal” body is not equivalent to happiness. So why not skip the step of hating your body and just go straight to happiness?
1. Take several deep breaths
2. Tell yourself it is going to be okay
3. Do something nice for yourself: rub your shoulders, have a cup of tea, stretch, go for a walk if you have time, smell a nice flower or candle, go outside.
Still worried? Make a list of what you need to do to solve the problem. Come up with at least three answers.
Hope this helps!
