How are we talking about ourselves and our bodies? The children and little ones around us are listening, oh so carefully. Would we ever say the negative things we say about ourselves, to our children... or to our best friend... or to our mother? Than why do we have the right to say them to ourselves? We need more body positivity in this world, and it starts with each of us.
Today, throw those negative thoughts out the window and find gratitude for all your body can do! Practice saying three positive affirmations out loud to yourself in the mirror this morning. These can be things like, "I am strong," "I am capable," "I am a good wife," "I am a loyal friend," "I am forgiving..." I do this every morning before anything else, and it has changed the way I live. It's hard to be negative about yourself when you start off your day with three powerful truths. Give it a try!
