9 Steps on Body Confidence

Jun 19, 2024

How often do you look in the mirror and think WOW I LOOK AMAZING!!  Yep, me neither.  We are all SO critical of ourselves (just that roll here, or dimple there…) when really we should be appreciating ourselves and the magic that is our human body

Here are 9 ways you can shift your Body Confidence today: 

  1. Challenge negative thoughts. When you have a negative thought about your body, ask yourself if it's really true. Is there any evidence to support that thought? If not, try to replace it with a more positive thought. 
  2. Focus on the positive. Make a list of all the things you like about your body, both physical and non-physical. This could include things like your hair, your eyes, your sense of humour, or your kindness. 
  3. Avoid comparing yourself to others. It's easy to compare ourselves to others, but this is often a recipe for disaster. Everyone's body is different, and there is no one "ideal" body type. 
  4. Be kind to yourself. Talk to yourself the way you would talk to a friend. Be patient, understanding, and forgiving. 
  5. Find activities that make you feel good. When you do things that make you feel good, you're more likely to feel good about yourself overall. This could include things like exercise, spending time in nature, or doing creative activities.  I find doing weights and getting strong really helps my body image perception. 
  6. Be mindful of your media consumption. Pay attention to the images and messages you're exposed to in the media as they have a big impact on your body image - try to surround yourself with positive images and messages. 
  7. Ditch the scale. The scale is not a reliable measure of your health or your worth. Focus on how you feel and how your clothes fit, rather than on the number on the scale. 
  8. Find a supportive community. Surround yourself with people who love and accept you for who you are. This can help you feel more confident in your own skin. 
  9. Seek professional help. If you're struggling to deal with body confidence issues on your own, consider seeking professional help from a coach, therapist, or counsellor. 

Why not try appreciating that body of yours – after all, it’s doing a great job.
