Healthy Living | 5 Ways to Boost Your Body Image


If you’re not happy with the way you look, you won’t be the first and you certainly won’t be the last. We live in a society where we’re judged on how we look; the clothes we wear, the make-up we put on and the size of our bodies. If you’re unhappy with the way you look, going shopping and trying on clothes in a changing room can be a nightmare. You need to feel confident in your own skin. So, how can you boost your body image?

Be Careful What You Take In

We’re surrounded by the idea of what beauty is. You only have to switch on your TV, open a magazine or scroll through social media to be faced with the western world’s version of beautiful. We’re told we must be a certain size, look a certain way and behave in a certain way to be the ideal woman. However, most of the time, this image is unattainable. The women that appear on the covers of magazines are usually photoshopped, so we’re trying to live up to a standard that doesn’t exist.

Stop Comparing Yourself to Others

There never has been and never will be another you. You are totally unique. So, comparing yourself to other people is pointless. We all wish we had something we don’t have; longer hair, longer nails, longer legs. It’s okay to wish. But, if you’re desperately trying to be something you’re not, you’ll never find the happiness you’re seeking. Surrendering to work with what you’ve got can be a huge relief. You’ve got nothing to prove.

Plastic Surgery

Some people may feel that plastic surgery is their only option. There may be something about yourself that you just can’t reconcile with, and that’s okay. However, you should seek as much advice as possible before undergoing surgery. For example, if you want to have breast implants, you may want to speak to other people who have been through the surgery before and get recommendations for excellent surgeons. It’s important you put yourself in the best hands because any kind of surgery is dangerous.

Treat Yourself Well

Feeling ashamed of your body image can lead to mistreating your body. You may indulge in more snacks and treats because you think it’ll make you feel better or you may not care about protecting your body. The way you treat yourself will have a direct link to the way you view yourself. Eat a healthy, balanced diet and get regular exercise. Treat yourself to a manicure and pedicure every now and then. Get your hair cut by the best hairdresser in town. Feeling your best will lead to looking your best.

Think Positively

Do you know that everyone else standing around you is worried about being judged too? Turn a negative thought into a positive one by complementing the other women around you. You have the capacity to empower others and you’ll reap what you sow. So, if you can’t be confident, act confident and the rest will follow.
