Every Monday features a tip, activity, inspiring quote or some other tidbit that helps boost your body image, whether directly or indirectly — and hopefully kick-starts the week on a positive note!
Got a tip for improving body image? Email me at mtartakovsky at gmail dot com, and I’ll be happy to feature it. I’d love to hear from you!
Recently, I read a great quote from Albert Einstein in Tina Seeling’s book InGenius: A Crash Course on Creativity: “If I had an hour to solve a problem and my life depended on the solution, I would spend the first fifty-five minutes determining the proper question to ask, for once I know the proper question, I could solve the problem in less than five minutes.”
In other words, questions are key. Asking the right questions helps us identify the best solutions. Asking the right questions helps us challenge ourselves and make powerful changes.
In other words, the questions you ask yourself can help you boost your body image, sharpen your self-care practices and best respond to your needs.
Here’s a list of 23 questions to help you check in with yourself and build a more positive body image.
(Cheryl Richardson includes a helpful list of self-care questions in her book The Art of Extreme Self-Care: Transform Your Life One Month at a Time. Below, a few of the questions are based on her list.)
If you’d like, write down the questions that resonate with you, and ask them on a daily or weekly basis. Check in with yourself. See what you need. See what feels energizing and wonderful. See what’s not serving you anymore. See what makes you feel strong and empowered. See what brings you joy.
What other questions can you ask yourself to boost your body image?
