Body Image Booster: Asking Yourself These Thought-Provoking Questions

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 [email protected], 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!

Building a more positive body image isn’t about having all the answers. But it does involve asking yourself some thought-provoking questions. I rounded up some fantastic posts from around the body image blogosphere for you today that do just that.

These posts pose important questions that help you think about your relationship with your body, among other things. Most of these posts also offer valuable advice. So be sure to check them out!

While you’re reading each question, take a few minutes to truly think about it. You can even journal about some of the questions if you like.

If you feel comfortable, share some of your responses below. Or what questions have you found helpful to ask yourself to start building a healthier and happier relationship with your body?

By the way, stay tuned tomorrow for my interview with Dara Chadwick, author of You’d Be So Pretty If…, about how moms can help their daughters build a healthy body image. I’m so excited to share her wise words with you!
