When you look in the mirror, do you feel good or do you focus on the negative and pick yourself to pieces? Why is it that we would never say to our friends the things that we say about our bodies to ourselves? Why are we so hard on ourselves? Why do we hold ourselves to such unattainable standards of beauty? Why can't we embrace our diversity instead of trying to look like everyone else?
Sometimes we tell ourselves, "I'll love my body when I lose 10lbs" or "I'd love my body if I didn't have cellulite" but the truth is that losing weight (or whatever you're hoping will change) does not cure negative body image. Poor body image leads to a damaged sense of self-esteem which negatively impacts all facets of your life, from your relationships, to your career and your overall sense of happiness.
Let's start the dialogue about the harmful impacts of not loving the body we have and bring awareness to the power of being body positive and loving your body today.
Join us in an informal discussion as speakers share their personal journey with poor body image, their struggle to embrace their own unique beauty and how their body positive photosession helped shift their perspective. You'll leave with tips on how to start changing your thinking and love your body today.
