My Journey Of Learning To Love My Body Includes These 5 Simple Steps

After 18 years of struggling with my body image, I'm finally trying to love it the way it is.

My Journey Of Learning To Love My Body Includes These 5 Simple Steps

I've had issues with my body image for as long as I can remember. I always felt that I looked good, but that someone else looks better. After a rough start to 2020, here are the five steps I'm taking to cut out that toxic mindset.

1. Working out

This may seem a little counterintuitive, but working out makes me feel strong. I've tried to stop doing workouts that focus on weight loss and work out in ways that make me feel powerful.

2. Stop obsessively weighing myself 

For many people, weighing themselves first thing in the morning is a daily habit. Instead of focusing on what the number on the scale is, I'm measuring myself by how happy I am.

3. A social media detox

I love Instagram and Twitter as much as the next girl, but I sometimes feel overwhelmed by the seemingly-perfect lives of others. I like to take time to turn off my phone and enjoy the present.

4. Stop keeping "fat" and "skinny" clothes

I'm not really sure why I feel the need to keep these clothes, but I've realized that if the clothes don't fit, I don't need to keep them.

5. Eating foods that make me happy 

Instead of labeling food as "good" and "bad," I judge food by how it makes me feel. It stops me from shaming myself and it also stops me from glorifying certain foods.

I hope these tips help! We are living in weird times, and we need to be kind to ourselves and one another.

Christmas traditions

The Holidays are a time for being with friends and family and celebrating the birth of Christ, but sometimes we forget to acknowledge the other religions and what they celebrate.
