Hello my Lovelies, Hope your all doing well? Sorry I have been a little quiet things are kind of been going fast forward and don't feel like I've had a moment to myself to sit and think. I have been super busy at work and have been travelling a lot more than I am usually used to so I think that has started to take its toll out on me.
Today I am back with what I think can be a delicate subject for some people so I wanted to share a few thoughts and tricks that can help us more be more body confident as these are things I have personally gone through and quite sure most women out there have at some point in time.
Body confidence is not just whats on the outside but I believe its also from within, I feel like its the whole package of ourselves if you like. The government apparently did a body confident campaign in 2014 but I had never heard of it have you? I feel like if me and a group of friends have not heard of these kind of campaigns are they really reaching the people they need to be reaching?
If you been following me for a while you'll know I was a gymnast and with that comes a lot of pressure on your looks and especially your weight, luckily I've always been slim and didn't have to worry that much about my size, but even through the years just because I was slim didn't make me body confident.
I am a size 6 with not really many curves, so pretty petite. My friends would always say how lucky I was to be slim and all the rest of it and yes I do appreciate being slim but it doesn't automatically make you body confident inside and out. As I have gotten older I have become more confident with myself and I sometimes wish I could have had that years ago when I was younger.
So I have come up with a few things that can help improve body confidence, and if these help even a few people feeling better then I am happy! Please do let me know what you think...
Get Sh*t Done!
This is one that really makes me feel good about myself, I make a to do list of things I need and want to get done that day and I focus on getting them all ticked off. There is such a good feeling about ticking off a tick list and i feel so empowered when I see how much I have achieved.
Give yourself a break
Some days I am really in no mood to be doing anything and feel super unmotivated to do anything, which is normally! We can not be 100% motivated all of the time I mean we are not robots we are humans with feelings. If you have a lazy day like I do somethings that is fine we all have them so don't beat yourself up about it.
Perfect is boring
I always say why would you want to be perfect its so boring, we are all individuals so why would we all want to be 'perfect' that wouldn't make us who we are. Yes we can improve on ourselves and that is a personal journey for everyone to do for themselves not for anyone else.
Listen and Dance to your favourite music
I love doing this one, its one of my favourite things that really gives me a kick up the butt. Put your music on at home and dance away, it puts me in such a good mood like I can do anything and no one will get in my way. Dancing away with create all those endorphins that get created when your exercising and put you in a great place.
Look after yourself
This is probably one of the most important and that is looking after yourself as number one, and don't let anyone get in your way of that. I always try and make sure I'm drinking plenty of water and eating as healthy as I can. If I don't I start to feel crappy I will be tired and snappy and that doesn't make me feel any better about myself. When Im eating write and hydrated I gives you such a glow that you will walk past your mirror and have to stop and look at yourself.
