Loving Yourself – Part 2 – How to change your body image

Is there something you don’t like about your body? Do you even hate it sometimes?

For the longest time, I sure did. And there are still times I have a tendency to compare myself with others. But I stop myself quickly enough now. Over the last few years I worked really hard at changing those thoughts.

How you treat your body (mentally and physically) is a direct reflection of how your body perform in return.

We can be so hard on ourselves, on the way we look and feel, but whatever it is you blame your body for, can you really say it’s true?

If you are not familiar with process of The Work from Byron Katie, I encourage you to watch these videos.

“My body betrayed me…”

“I hate my body”…

You can start loving your body now, no matter how you feel about it. If you are interested in doing a worksheet based on The Work, you can find her tools for free here.
Exercise :

A great exercise is to write 10 things you like about yourself every day for 7 days. At the end of the week, you should have 70 items, if you can get to 100 it’s even better!

Every day, read your list. Your mindset will start shifting as you do the process. It might look silly, it might look like something you can skip, but if you’ve been struggling with your body image, you should really consider this simple exercise. It will totally shift how you see yourself and how you project yourself to others.
