How to Be Comfortable With Your Body

You might be one of those people that don’t like the way your body looks,
but you don’t have to feel that way anymore. These steps can help.

1.  Don’t take any kind of criticism personally
 You might feel bad because people have said mean things in the past. But many times,
when someone says something bad about you, it’s only because of these reasons:
Ø  They have nothing better to do.
Ø  They are mean-spirited.
Ø  They are bored with their own lives.
Ø  They are jealous.
Ø  They are having a bad day.
Ø  They have body image problems.

2. Stop Comparing Yourself to Others
Comparing yourself to others, especially celebrities, is a fine way to throw your self-esteem down the drain, as there will always be those who appear ‘better’ than you, and those who appear ‘worse’ than you.
In the end you will most likely end up wishing you were different with thoughts of worthlessness.
It takes you nowhere, wastes a lot of time, and puts you in a psychologically terrible place.

3. Be beautiful, inside and out
Beauty is not just something you either have or don’t have. It is something you can nurture.

Ø  Get enough sleep at regular hours so that your body can heal and repair itself.
Ø  Pay attention to your nutrition. Keep health in mind when preparing meals at home or when in a restaurant.
o   Eat whole grains.
o   Avoid sugary and salty foods and drinks.
o   Eat a breakfast every day.
Ø  Don’t listen to what people say about you.
Ø  Love who you are.
Ø  Begin or continue an exercise program. Whether you are comfortable with your body or not, you still need exercise.
Ø  Look at yourself in the nude in front of a full-length mirror and evaluate your body. Write down areas for you to work on.
Ø  Realize there’s no certain size you should be.

Appreciate your work.
