Watch: How to instantly Feel Confident About Your Body

Posted by Matthew, 14 Sep 16

Most of our concerns about our body images are shaped by the media's perception of what beauty is. Sometimes, its the people around who make us have a negative body image based on the comments they make about our bodies.

We are so concerned about what people think about our bodies that we begin criticizing our own bodies with statements like:

“Eww... look at that stomach."

Your perfect partner could be online right now...

What are you looking for?

“I hate my chubby legs.”

“I wish I had better skin.”

This is how we talk to ourselves every single day. We wake up in the morning, go to the mirror, and immediately think about everything that’s wrong with our body... We just can't stand the man or woman in the mirror.

We go the gym, read magazines, watch TV, and feel completely inferior compared to the perfect, toned, athletic figures put in front of our eyes 24/7.

How much happiness are you losing because of your body image? How is this affecting your day-to-day confidence? I find it terrifying how mean we are to ourselves in this area. I’m all for self-improvement, but not at the cost of self-love. How can you expect someone else to embrace how your body looks if all you do is beat yourself about it?

In this blog video, I share a story about my own moment of body insecurity and give you 2 ways to INSTANTLY improve your body image so that you can walk through the world with confidence again.

Remember: Just because you have goals to achieve, doesn’t mean you can’t be kind to yourself along the way.

    "Most of our concerns about our body images are shaped by the media's perception of what beauty is." Ummmm...no. Stop blaming the media. How about it's fairly natural instinct that both men and women are attracted to firm, fit body types? Ever think of that? "Fat acceptance" is the same as saying "Go ahead, destroy your body. Get diabetes. Who cares? As long as you're confident". But fat acceptance is only for women. Only women can be fat and still get coddled and pat on the back and told their "beautiful" just as they are. Why can't it be the same for men? Why are women of ALL sizes still chasing after firm, fit, 6 pack abs type of men? Hmmmm. Double standards much?
