Come to Terms With Your Reflection In the Mirror!

You must realize that every individual is different in terms of height, weight and body type; therefore, there is no such thing as a perfect figure. Accepting your body just as it is and feeling good about your shape requires you to celebrate your individuality and ultimately make peace with the reflection staring back at you in the mirror.

Loving your body means finding balance in your state of mind, in your eating habits, and in your physical activity. With your wellbeing in mind, you'll manage to stay away from diets that promise quick weight loss solutions, and instead you'll concentrate on finding an eating plan that allows you to enjoy optimal and long-lasting health.

Analyze your thoughts and put the following tips into practice to help you get rid of your obsession with reaching physical perfection:

  • Expand your vocabulary by adding words such as "I'm worth it" and avoid saying things like "I look...".
  • Don't see your body by areas, but rather as a whole.
  • Be wise when it comes to the media. The majority of images in magazines have been touched up by technology; even models have their flaws.
  • Don't believe in quick diets, "miracle" creams or plastic surgery as the solution to transforming and improving your life overall.
  • Describe yourself in a positive way and avoid using negative words that destroy your self-esteem.
  • Be patient! Making or breaking habits takes time, but it can be done.
  • Understand that beauty is not eternal. Nourish and foster long-lasting elements, such as your mind, love, friendship and life's good moments.

If you're set on improving your image, remember that it's important to set realistic goals and congratulate yourself as you achieve them.
