It is no surprise that thinness is highly valued in our society and that many women struggle to feel good in their bodies. Constant comparisons to the supposed ‘ideal body’ leads to unrealistic expectations and a sense of dissatisfaction with your body shape. Attempts to change the body may quickly follow as an attempt to feel better.
Here’s the thing, feeling good in your body is not about how your body looks, what it weighs, or what shape it is. If you broaden your perspective and take a look at yourself and your body as a whole, you can begin the journey towards a better relationship with your body.
