Reframing our thoughts is an important aspect of cultivating our healthiest best lives. ♥️
In recent studies, body appreciation & gratitude towards the body have been the central organizing variables within how to cultivate positive body image.
🤗Body appreciation has been defined as accepting, holding favorable opinions towards, and respecting the body, while also rejecting media, promoted appearance ideals as the only form of human beauty. (Avalon et al., 2005)
Many of us struggle with negative self-talk.
We put ourselves down, criticize ourselves, and beat ourselves up… and some of us do it so much we don’t even realize we’re doing it!
Negative self-talk can become a habit, and it’s an important habit to break because the thoughts and words we say and think shape our reality. 🙅🏾♀️🙅🏻♀️🙅🏿♀️🙅🏽♀️🙅🏼♀️
Thankfully, studies have shown that using neutral or positive affirmations can help us rewire our brains and change our outlook! 🧠
By disrupting these negative thought patterns and reframing them into statements that serve you better. Basically, by being deliberate with your self-talk!
