Be Kind to Yourself

Posted on: June 10, 2010

                     
           Do you know what to do to take care of yourself? Do
           you try look and feel your best at all times? Do you
           watch what goes into your mouth?
          
           A lot of girls find it hard to take care of themselves
           so that they could be happy and healthy. They don’t
           feel in charge of their bodies and this can be a recipe 
           for disaster when it comes to developing self-esteem 
           and self-confidence.
          
           No matter what has happened to you in your life up
           to this point, your body still belongs to you 100 percent
           of the time. This means that your choices about your
           body have to be totally yours as well. Treating your
           body well is never a part-time job: It is a lifelong
           pursuit.  Here are a few tips on how to take care of 
           your body.
          
           1.  Don’t think negatively about your body. Your
           body image is how you see yourself in the mirror,
           picture yourself in your mind, or talk about yourself
           about your body. When you have a negative body
           image you see yourself inaccurately by bashing your
           body.  This is a widespread problem for girls. Body
           confidence shows in how you carry yourself that is
           how you walk, talk, and present yourself to the world.
           Think about the amazing things that your body can do
           and compliment your unique assets. This type of
           positive self-talk can help you to make respectful
           choices about your body.
          
           2.  Take a lot of care with how you look and how you
           dress.  The way you dress and make up your face or
           even pierce yourself can all be reflections of who you
           are who you’re trying to be. Sometimes, you make
           statements by how you dress that doesn’t reflect your
           inner beauty. Make sure that your style is uniquely
           your own and not something that is portrayed through
           the media. Your look should be all about your
           personality and what makes you feel good about
           yourself.
          
           3.  Feed your body healthy food.  You need to eat
           healthy foods packed with vitamins and minerals to
           nourish your body and fee great. Some girls truly enjoy
           food without guilt and know how to make smart food
           choices. Others develop a messed-up relationship with
           food, starving themselves or going on exercise binges
           because someone called them ‘chubby’.
          
           4.  Get moving every day.  Take a look at the choices
           that you’re making about physical activity. Do you get
           enough exercise? Maybe you stay glued to the couch
           instead of going for a walk. Or maybe when you
           exercise you act as if you’re training for the Olympics.
           When exercise is taken too far or you don’t get enough,
           you can do serious long-term damage to your body.
          
           So, take care of your body as much as possible. By
           taking care of your body, you will gaining a lot of body
           confidence and self-confidence as well. And life as an
           adolescent is much better if you have confidence.
