Body image what a huge bag it is these days. We are constantly bombarded with images on a daily basis in the newspapers, magazines, television, instagram, facebook, the list just goes on and on and the message they are giving is ‘don't I look great and skinny’ or ‘look at my muscles and the definition’. There are celebrity DVD’s or downloads to help us lose our muffin tops, we are constantly bombarded with what is good for us, what is bad for us and the inner critic reaches everyone. I believe it is time to take a stand.
None of us, yes I know this is radical but none of us are perfect, but life is not about being perfect, it is about being fulfilled and happy, waking up happy, going to bed happy. When you are happy and fulfilled you don’t worry about the little things because you are enjoying the big picture of life.
I believe yoga helps us all bring balance to our lives, it helps us think positively, it helps alleviate negative thinking and bring in a healthy balance. By regularly practicing yoga you relax, take time out of your day to be positive, give yourself energy, alleviate stress and makes your body strong.
Lets embrace our imperfections and become, strong, healthy and a lot, lot, wiser.
'You are imperfect, permanently and inevitably flawed and you are beautiful"
