Improve how you talk to your self
Either you are talking to yourself or with someone. Make sure to pay close attention on how you think about yourself and others may think about you. ie, The self-talk. We often put ourselves down at some point of the day, criticizing ourselves for having that dessert, or even allowing ourselves to feel guilty over that soda. Stop it! Instead compliment yourself. Remind yourself about something you have achieved and focus on the things you have done that were good for your body. Did you drink water today instead of that diet soda? Perhaps you added spinach to your eggs this morning and remembered to take your vitamins. Focusing on what we have done that is good for us, encourages us to continue down that positive path and way of thinking.
It will help in turning your self-talk & negative thoughts into a positive statement that begins the process of CHANGE.
Recognize your qualities
Create a list of your positive qualities instead of physical traits. Are you kind, artistic, honest, good in business, have a knack for making people laugh, etc? Post this list anywhere in your home where you can view at least 3 to 4 times a day.
Building that self esteem will make it easier to want to treat yourself well and make healthy decisions. After all, you deserve it!
We often compare ourselves with people who are in movies or magazines. You can compare yourself with real people around you, but there is no need for that. Real people come in all shapes and sizes. Remember just how much photoshop and body doubles play part in the entertainment industry before you compare yourself to what you see.
Live an active lifestyle
Exercise or some activity can work wonders and make you feel awesome! It not only boosts your mood but is actually a quick step in the right direction of having a physically fit body at the same time. Moderate exercise can be the great way to eliminate all the distractions that may cultivate negative feelings inside you. By the time you have completed your workout, your negative feelings are likely to be less intense or even replaced by a stronger sense of accomplishment, confidence and giving you something to feel great about!
