Learning to love yourself is the first step to good health.
We compare ourselves to others and set our standards by the standards of others. We pick ourselves apart and put ourselves down. We try so hard to change everything about ourselves, sending messages to the body that it is not acceptable or lovable in its current condition.
What if you stopped fighting yourself and your body, and started loving it instead?
What if, instead of following every fad diet, you chose to eat foods that nourished you?
What if, instead of doing exercises you hated, you chose to move in ways that you enjoyed?
When you embrace where you are now and appreciate your body in its current state, suddenly, it becomes easier to make healthy choices that suit you.
No amount of kale or cardio will improve your relationship with yourself and your body. True health involves inner work, and learning to love yourself is the first step. In my Nourished for Life e-book, I talk about how to end the war with yourself and adopt a more nurturing approach to health and wellness.
How can you be kinder to yourself?
