When you look into the mirror, what do you think to yourself? Do you berate yourself and put yourself down noticing all the things you don’t like about yourself? How do you want to be when you look into the mirror? Wouldn’t you prefer to say nice things and to see yourself through the eyes of beauty and as the amazing woman you are? Why it is so important to look at yourself in a positive way in the mirror is because your self-esteem and self-worth depend on your body image. Your confidence and sense of diversity hinges on the way you see yourself. In this mission, make sure you brace yourself for some body love now, no matter what your body shape or size. By following these three simple strategies, you can make some change today:
Look at yourself in the mirror.
Too often people think that looking in the mirror is conceited and vain when it is important to be real about the way you are looking while having a positive view of it. It is imperative to this mission to know that you are comfortable within your own skin and you are able to look. So many women won’t look or if they do they berate themselves and avoid the negativity. Look into the mirror as it is a way to self-love and embrace your body now.
Notice your self talk.
Write down on a piece of paper what you say to yourself when you look into the mirror both positive and negative. Notice the way you feel as a result of this self talk and please understand the impact if your self talk is negative this has on your self-esteem and self-worth. As you see what you wrote on the paper, would you say that to anyone else or spend time with people who say that about you? Most likely not so be sure to take a note and follow the next step powerfully to be able to change your thoughts over time.
Reframe your thinking.
What reframing means is turning it all around toward the positive. Now, I am not saying you will be all positive all of the time but what I am saying here is that you can strive for excellence over perfection and hit the jackpot with your body image by loving your body and telling yourself different things. Reframing means looking at what you have been saying to yourself that is negative and write down what you want to say to yourself instead. When you do that, feel the feelings of the new positive statements, visualise yourself as more of the positive traits and embrace yourself in entirety for the true beauty you are.
