What if you were grateful for your body? What if you felt truly thankful instead of shaming, blaming or hating your body...try thanking your body for everything you can do with it instead of focusing on what you look like.
I’ve struggled with body image for what seems like a lifetime - attaching my worth to what I look like.
I’ve learned that being your smallest and leanest is not what's going to make you happy or satisfied. At my leanest, I was constantly tired and consumed by things that didn’t really matter.
It took mental and physical illness to show me how much of my worth I had placed on how I looked. My whole perspective has shifted and now I see my body as an incredible working partner.
The fitness and health industry profits off your insecurities. How you treat your body often stems from what's going on inside you. Mind, body and soul depend on one another.
You deserve to feel healthy, to nourish your body and enjoy the beautiful things in life that you value.
Making changes that feel good for your mind and soul are necessary to support any changes you want to see physically. You deserve to feel healthy, to nourish your body and enjoy the beautiful things in life that you value.
Today, try this with me. Thank your body.
Thank you for all the times you carried me through heartache and pain
Thank you for allowing me to hug, kiss and hold everyone I love
Thank you for laughs - those feel really great
Thank you for sticking with me when I wasn’t able to love you
