Body Positive Affirmations: Feel Better About Your Body Now

Imagine standing in front of a mirror, not with self-doubt or criticism, but with unconditional love and acceptance. That’s the power of body positive affirmations.

In a world obsessed with insulting beauty standards, these affirmations are not just words, but a rebellion against self-rejection and a journey towards self-love.

Every day, people struggle with body image issues, influenced by media and societal pressures. These struggles often lead to a harmful cycle of self-criticism and low self-esteem, leaving many feeling disconnected from their own bodies.

You’re here because you’re seeking a way to embrace your body and find peace and self-acceptance.

I promise to guide you through understanding the power of body positive affirmations, how to effectively use them in your daily life, and how high-vibe thoughts can be a catalyst for a lasting change in your relationship with your body.

What is body positivity?

Psychology Today defines body positivity, “Body positivity is a movement to accept bodies of all sizes and types, rather than those that conform to societal ideals of beauty. It emphasizes self-acceptance, inner worth, and appreciation for a body’s abilities.”

Self-acceptance, inner worth and appreciation…

I exhale just reading those words.

Thank goodness that we live in a world where we’re moving in a different direction… but only if we each take a stand beginning with ourselves.

Growing up feeling guilty for eating Cheetos was just one small example of many of how messed up my mind was about food!

We can change perceptions as we fight back… beginning with ourselves.

Why positive body image affirmations?

Sadly, according to an article in Healthline.com, “Negative body image can begin at a surprisingly early age. According to a 2020 research review, 40 to 50 percent of first- and second-graders already don’t like some aspect of their body.”

It’s a complex topic and a number of factors contribute to eating disorders, negative feelings about the body, and a lack of body acceptance.

If your negative body image goes very deep, possibly seek the help of a qualified therapist or counselor to help you grow in body positivity.

However, while doing the personal work, positive body affirmations can help you.

The idea behind positive affirmations is they can reprogram the brain through practice and repetition and changing limiting beliefs.

Brain Plasticity

The brain’s ability to restructure itself is the subject of neural plasticity.

According to the National Library of Medicine, “‘Neural plasticity’ refers to the capacity of the nervous system to modify itself, functionally and structurally, in response to experience and injury”.

One way the brain “modifies itself”, has to do with how we think.

With the repetition of positive thoughts, we’re using the brain differently and we create new neural pathways in the brain.

Final thoughts

Life is a journey.

Every last one of us has things we’re working on in ourselves… or at least we should be!

There’s so much pressure to look a certain way and it’s horrible!

Don’t stand for it… fight back and commit to love yourself, inside and out.
