Read For Better Body Image

As Abraham Hicks said, “a belief is a thought you keep thinking.”

How many thoughts have you had about your body that you keep thinking?

From very early on in each of our lives, we were exposed to other people’s body beliefs. These beliefs likely come your way through comments directed at you, comments said around you, media messaging, and more. These moments create experiences, internalized “meaning,” and become part of the inner story that you are constantly telling yourself.

Releasing judgment and embracing compassionate curiosity: what is the story you’re telling yourself about your body? How does that story feel for you?
