Society is just screwed up we are meant to look a certain way, be a certain size etc we can't get away from it, it's everywhere magazines, newspapers, Instagram, twitter and Facebook. We see so much body shaming it's unbelievable in this day and age and it needs to stop!.
Diet companies are always promoting losing pounds, it's the same in magazines then next page is a recipe to make brownies (though brownies are the best!) it's just WRONG!. If magazines printed every body size out there, instead of shaming people for being the 'wrong size' then we wouldn't be so hell bent on changing our bodies when we don't even need to.
These diet companies are making money from us because we think we need to change our body but really we don't. We should ignore them and learn to love ourselves which is what this post is about today.I've thought about writing a blog post about body positivity for a while now but I didn't really know where to begin but after reading Grace Victory's tweets this morning it inspired me to write this post.
1. Write down I LOVE MY BODY and stick to your mirror and read it everyday.
2.Unfollow Instagram and twitter accounts that always post negativity and unfollow brands that don't promote body positivity in all sizes.
3.No one is perfect, so embrace your flaws and love the things that make you unique. Don't compare yourself others it isn't going to help your body is good enough and don't let ANYONE tell you different.
4.Try and avoid magazines that constantly body shame people for being too skinny or being too big who actually writes this stuff?! and how would they feel if someone body shamed them?.
5. Surround yourself with upbeat, positive people who bring out the best in you.
Thanks for reading
and I hope this post helps you into becoming more body positive.
