Love your body

Love your body

You’re in this life together, so

I recommend making friends with yourself

Practicing self care is a great way to start

One evening have a bath

in the candlelight

Apply your favourite scented moisturiser

Wrap up in a fluffy oversized robe

Paint your nails

Read a book or magazine

Have the light levels low

Drink a cup of tea

Breathe deeply

Love your body

by being intentional about what you eat and drink

Cramming your mouth with food and drink

because you’re anxious or exhausted

is not self care

Loving your body is giving space for your body to feel

and accepting it

not trying to smother it with peanut butter

or wine

Notice what you are doing

Loving your body is not living on autopilot

Loving your body looks like self compassion

Stop being so hard on yourself

What does self compassion look like to you

What are you being hard on yourself about

and you could stop right now

Don’t isolate yourself

Most of us feel inadequate and on our own at some point

It’s not just you

It’s part of the human experience

Your reaction is what makes it unique

So choose to love your body

It is a choice

You’re not obliged to hate your body

That is totally optional

Start by doing something kind to yourself

If you don’t have time for the bath time ritual

Just make fifteen minutes space in your day

and do something just for you

Sit in the garden

or on the sofa

Do fifteen minutes of stretching

or ballet

or yoga

or weights

Do the thing that gets you in touch with you

and accepts you wholeheartedly
