Mirror, Mirror On The Wall. A fairy tale question that can be the basis for our everyday ritual. A mirror image is a reflected duplication of an object that appears identical but reversed, but often, what we see is not just reversed but often distorted.
Many women and some men spend much of their lives attempting to change their bodies. Only 4% of women globally consider themselves beautiful.
A positive body image involves understanding that healthy, attractive bodies come in many shapes and sizes, and that physical appearance says very little about our character or value as a person.
So Here are today’s Hot Tips For Building Resiliency and Celebrating Compliment Your Mirror Day:
I am SO guilty of looking in the mirror and picking away at the things that are not perfect: my crooked toes and my short waist. Not to mention my eye lids that are sagging with age and the loose skin on my arms. It is hard to look at yourself in the mirror and ignore what is not ‘ideal’ and to celebrate what is unique and beautiful.
We have a positive body image when we have a realistic perception of our bodies AND most of the time, we enjoy them just as they are.
Learn to de-emphasize the numbers and emphasize positive self-care choices.
Stop comparing yourself to others. You’re are unique.
And finally, one that I am working on is setting a good example for others by refraining from “fat talk” or “old talk” when you are with friends and family. Think of it as the psychic equivalent of second-hand smoke.
