As young women, it’s important (and very smart), to be in touch with our bodies. How much we work out, what we eat and how we feel.
1. Every Body Is Beautiful
Whether you have curves, stretch marks, big breasts or no curves, it doesn’t make your body less perfect. There isn’t an “ideal” body type. Everyone has different body types, yours is beautiful because it’s yours, so own and embrace it.
2. Exercise Isn’t Just For Weight Loss
Make your health a priority – exercising regularly should become a part of you, and not just because you want to lose weight, but because you want to be fit and healthy.
When you get into a routine, you’ll start to enjoy it more and more. Regular exercise is also good for your mental health. Taking care of your body ow will pay off later.
3. Your Size Doesn’t Determine Your Health
One person can be thin and really out of shape, while another person can be larger in size but be in excellent health.
We’re all different, so don’t compare your size to others. Your main focus should be on how you feel. When you feel healthy and amazing, you look healthy and amazing.
4. Water Is Really, Really Important
We know you probably hear this all the time, but it’s why it’s so important. Your body is basically 45% – 60% of water, so drink lots of it because your body will thank you in the long run.
5. Your Vagina Doesn’t Look Weird
We’re always going on and on about why you should love your vag, because you really should! Vulva’s come in all shapes, sizes and colors, so don’t overthink it.
6. If Someone Doesn’t Like Your Body, You Don’t Need To Change, They Do
Anyone who makes you feel bad or insecure about your body isn’t worth it. You might really like this person, but anyone who is quick to criticize your body or your “problem areas” doesn’t deserve you.
7. Everyone Has Flaws
We’re all self conscious about something; it could be our feet, stomach, or even our thighs.
People aren’t visibly searching for your imperfections, except you. So if you’re someone who always complains about their body, remember that no one is noticing except when you draw attention to it.
Lack of sleep literally affects how you look, feel and perform.
Your body needs time to rest and rejuvenate. You can actually feel it in your body when you haven’t properly rested. Getting enough sleep will make you feel and look better, it will also make your body healthier.
