Positive Self Talk

If you have a visual of where you want to be and what you want your body to look like, it’s easy to talk down to yourself if you aren’t there yet.  How many times have you looked into the mirror and thought, “Ugh, I hate my thighs. My stomach is so gross.”  I’ve been there, I get it.   All of this negative self-talk will do nothing but bring you down and leave you feeling empty and like a failure.

What we think and what we say can easily turn into what we believe.  The mind is a very powerful tool.  When you talk down about yourself day in and day out, you are hurting yourself more than you know.  By empowering yourself, looking into the mirror and pointing out things about yourself that you LOVE, it becomes so much easier to take care of our bodies and have a much more positive outlook on ourselves and our life in general.  

I mean, think about it.  

Why, when it comes to our own bodies has it become so acceptable to hate and be cruel to ourselves?

Talk to yourself like you are your own best friend.  Would you ever look at your daughter, your best friend, your mother and say “Wow, you’re such a failure. You’re body just disgusts me.” NO! NEVER!

So why is it ok to say that to yourself?  Focus on positive self talk and motivation and slowly you will learn to love your body.

Yes, LOVE it.  

Our bodies are always changing, and it’s important to strive for progress, not perfection. Take each morning, afternoon, any time of the day to look at a certain part of your body that’s in progress and find something POSITIVE to say about it.  ”I’m working on my abs, my thighs are becoming stronger each and every day.”

Be proud for being YOU, and treat yourself like you would treat someone you love.

Be your own best friend.
