Anonymous asked: No matter how much I try to be positive about my body and my appearance, it never works. I hate the way I look to the point that getting ready in the morning puts me in a bad mood for the rest of the day and I'm shy bc I have no confidence, What do i do
The first thing you need to do is stop saying you hate the way you look. Why do you feel like that? Why do you feel hatred towards yourself instead of acceptance?
Do me a favour, when you wake up, take a massive stretch, stretch your whole body, your legs, arms, all of it, throw yourself around your bed and stretch right out until you can’t stretch anymore. It’s hard to be annoyed when you feel as good as you do after a stretch!
Next, instead of looking at yourself and thinking negatively, look at individual parts of your body and compliment them, out loud or in your head.
"I have some nice legs, right here!" or "I love my smile!" Just say a few positive things about yourself.
While you’re getting ready, put on some fun and happy music that makes you feel good. Bop around while you get dressed. The extra movement will release endorphins and that will boost your mood. If you have the time, take a walk, this releases endorphins too :) Endorphins are good, they are your friends!
Actually, if possible, at anytime you feel crappy, throw on some music and dance around, or take that walk, go for a swim or something, get yourself moving a little. Even laying on your bed and kicking your legs in the air.
Try to push the negative thoughts from your head where your body is concerned. It’s carried you this far in your life, doesn’t it need some love and respect?
Talk to your body like you’d talk to a friend or beloved pet, not like something your just scraped off your shoe.
I hope this helps :)
