Loving our body can be a pretty hard and complex thing to do. We’re surrounded by so many fake pictures of bodies everywhere. And let’s face it, we all want a “ nice body “ and be “ desired” too. We follow pages with girls in bikinis, we read magazines with half-naked men and women more photoshopped than anything and we’re here crying while watching the 2018 Victoria secret fashion show wishing we were hot like them. You see THIS right here “ hot like them” IS our biggest problem.
We spend more time loving the body of others instead of loving ours. Our body is our temple. We only have one and it will be the only one till the rest of our lives. We need to treat it right because our body keeps our love, our soul, our memories and more. It’s ok to change a few things, it’s ok to gain or lose weight. It’s ok to get some tattoos or get a spray tan. It’s ok to get some surgeries if it makes you feel more in love with yourself. We need to start loving ourselves more than loving the opinion of others. So here are 3 tips to learn how to love yourself.
1. Go to the gym
Going to the gym can help out our self-esteem more than we can ever know. I don’t know about you guys but when I go to the gym for 1 hour, I look at myself in the mirror and I feel like a VS model. Regular physical activity can not only control your weight but it stimulates various brain chemicals that may leave you feeling happier and more relaxed. Wich will improve the way you see yourself, your life and general and even your sex life.
Lingerie can make you see yourself in ways you’ve never seen before. For women that have a low self-esteem and think that they don’t need lingerie if they don’t have a boyfriend or don’t have an amazing sex life, I would highly recommend jumping into it and give it a try. Lingerie is not made to impress men, it’s made to cover some intimate parts in a sexy way. Its made to make you feel like a desired women (which btw there’s nothing wrong with being desired by your own self). Every woman in this world should at least once in their lives taste the feeling of feeling sexy and sassy in their own body. And it can easily start with lingerie. Don’t be afraid to love yourself and feel yourself FOR yourself.
3. Do it yourself, for yourself.
Do it yourself, don’t change your amazing body for someone else. Be more attentive to your body and spend time listening to it. We get easy influenced by the idea of beauty, goals, and dreams of others. The beauty of a girl shouldn’t make you feel like you’re not beautiful. If someone likes short hair it doesn’t mean you have to like it too. Support and be there for yourself like you support others.
People tend to think that guys don’t worry as much about their appearance as girls do, but this isn’t true. Even if some of these tips are more women-focused (looking at you #2, but we don’t judge), finding ways to be positive about your appearance is the key to building a healthy body image and good self-esteem for everyone.
Self-love is hard to achieve but wonderful to feel. Give it time, one step at a time.
