Just like that holiday time is with us….. are you ready for it? We spend most of the year covered up, hiding our bodies. Some of us love our bodies and some of us hate our bodies. How did you feel last time someone said “Wow you look fantastic” embarrassed, quick to tell them you don’t, muffle something in return, or did you say thank you very much and mean it?
Most of us look at our bodies in the mirror and value everything on how it looks. Stop, focus on how you feel and what your body can do. By focusing on keeping active, our wellbeing and how our bodies function you will gain more body confidence than by looking in the mirror. Think about what your body does on a daily basis, how strong it is and most important of all how hard it works for us all.
Next time you have a critical thought about yourself, think about how your arms open to hug a loved one, how strong they are to carry a child or support an older relative.Stop being critical about the bits you dislike, no one has their perfect body so go on holiday, put on that bikini and walk proud.
