Body Image Boosters From The Blogosphere 1.26.14

bubbles, central park, nyc

A positive body image goes beyond liking your looks. It encompasses taking good care of yourself and leading a fulfilling life. In this weekly series, I share some of my favorite posts from some of my favorite bloggers on this topic. Sometimes I also share relevant pieces that I’ve written elsewhere. Hope you find these links inspiring!

Five lessons on being selfish and needy. If you’re pressed for time, just read this post from Christie. It’s brilliant! This is the line I kept reading over and over: “I had to be the one to save me.”

Just say it.

Turning our negative emotions into our greatest source of strength.

“Yoga is a practice of not resisting sensation.”

How to respond to rude remarks.

10 foods that help you fight illness.

Naming your favorites. “What do you love?  What makes you happy? What restores and sustains you?  Sometimes, when things are difficult, what we most need is to get right back to our core and having your favorites on the brain can really help with that.”

Seeking inspiration.

Change the way you see stress (a video).

Insight into starting a home yoga practice.

Suggestions for being less self-conscious.

I was honored to participate in Sas’s Let It Go Project. (Here’s my post if you missed it.) And here are a few of my favorites from others:

“I am giving myself permission to be exactly who I am.”

The end of should.

Letting go of and.

Letting go of red alert.

“That voice that says, gotta hold tight baby may never go. But she is being loved up by the new one reminding me daily, multiple times a day that it is happening within me. That it is mine. I can hold tight or I can open, open, open.”

What’s been inspiring you this week?
