Take photos of yourself.
Take a look at your camera roll. Are you in the pictures? If not, what does that say about your view of yourself? Do you love your body - just the way it is? Or do you pick it apart, focusing on all the flaws? Now, if you need to take some action steps to improve your health, then by all means - do that! But we need to stop comparing ourselves to the next person and embrace our unique bodies.
“Loving your body only when it’s in perfect shape is like loving children only when they’re well behaved.” ~ Unknown
We aren’t perfect - and that’s ok! We need to learn to love ourselves - wrinkles, rolls, and all. Don’t hide from yourself! Believe it or not, the simple act of taking a selfie can help provide self-affirmation and identity. The more you see yourself on camera, the more familiar that view of yourself will become. You’ll start seeing less of all those “imperfections” and begin seeing how beautiful you really are.
