7 steps to a body positive day


I think one of the most important ways to live a healthy life is to make great choices all day. How does your attitude towards your body affect the choices you make?

 

  1. Dress in clothes that let you feel good. You know which ones they are, the top that you bought on vacation that swings in a way you love. A scarf that brings out the color of your eyes. And earrings or a little adornment because you deserve to feel good. And you get bonus points if you find one little thing you can appreciate about yourself this morning.
  2. Put on lotion with sunscreen. I admit that I don’t slather my entire body in lotion or sunscreen, but I put it on my face at least.
  3. Put on lipstick – I always put a little Burt’s bees tinted lip shimmer on first thing. Later in the day I am inclined to put on more serious lipstick but first things first.
  4. set your intention for the day. How do you want to feel today? How do you want to think about yourself today? What positive habit do you want to focus on today? What is one thing you would like to focus on today that will help you move a step closer to how you want to feel about yourself, your time, and your health?
  5. Write down your Why?!  Why you are making the changes you want to make? Are they changes in how you approach the time/space continuum? The way you eat? Working out more? Getting in touch with the reason you are doing this first thing can help you stay committed thoughout the day
  6. Drink a glass of water. And I mean water, not coffee, which I also drink first thing in the morning. This can be a hard habit to get into because I don’t really like it
  7. Decide what is for lunch. I work from home, so I don’t have to pack a lunch although I do at times so it is ready when I want it. Deciding what I am eating before I start my day helps me stay committed to
