Every Monday features a tip, exercise, inspiring quote or other tidbit to help boost your body image. For many of us, Mondays are tough. We may feel anxious and stressed out, anticipating an arduous week, especially if we didn’t get much rest and relaxation during the weekend.
These kinds of feelings don’t create the best environment for improving one’s body image. In fact, you might be harder on yourself and easily frustrated. You might even feel like you’re walking on egg shells – with yourself! With these posts, I hope you’ll have a healthier and happier body image day, that’ll last throughout the week.
Got a tip for improving body image? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I’ll be happy to feature it. It can be anything you do that’s healthy and helps boost your body image. I’d love to hear from you!
Having a positive body image also means recognizing and appreciating your own unique and wonderful beauty.
But I think in order to recognize the beauty in ourselves, we must recognize it in others. That includes recognizing beauty in every noun: people, places and things.
Like the beauty of a city:
A small town:
A rocky river:
Old books (and history):
One of the best ways to do that is through photographs. There are so many blogs that capture the tinny tiny moments of life so beautifully. So today I wanted to share with you some of these resources that help me see beauty in the everyday and in others.
All these blogs are reminders of the beauty all around us – in nature, in creativity, in friends, in family and in ourselves.
What are some of your favorite websites that capture the beauty in everyday life? Where have you seen beauty lately? What helps you to recognize beauty in others and in yourself?
By the way, please stay tuned tomorrow for an interview with Harriet Brown, author of Brave Girl Eating: A Family’s Struggle with Anorexia.
