Accept your Body

Nobody is perfect. Everyone wants to be liked and accepted! If you want to help yourself, then you need to see your body the way that it is. Become less of a critic and be more of a friend to yourself if you can. You also have to make sure that you don’t shame yourself. When you make unfriendly comments about your body, this will hurt your self-esteem. Show yourself some respect and build good habits. If you have a habit of putting your body down, then instead, focus on what you like about yourself. If you can set new and more positive habits, this will help you to stay focused on what truly matters.

Like your Body

You also need to find things that you like about the way that you look. It may be that you like your hands, your face or even your hair. If you have nice eyes, focus on that. You need to say what you like about yourself and why. If you get stuck, go to your friends and ask them what they like about you. The more you can accept things like this, the more you’ll be able to feel good about yourself in general.

Focus on What you Can Do

Another thing that you need to do is focus on what your body can do. There’s way more to your body than you realise. If you play sport, dance, swim or go running, then this is your body in full action. Your body is there for you when you jump for joy, climb, reach or stretch. It’s also working when you hug someone or when you carry things. You need to try and be amazed by it, and you also need to be thankful too. 

Look After Your Body

If you want to look after your body, then visit and try to eat a good diet. If you do, you will soon find that you have more energy and that you rocket your self-esteem too. When you eat, take the time to actually taste your food, and get enough sleep at night. If you can do this, you will soon find that you can really adopt that positive body image and that you are also able to make yourself much more aware of how your lifestyle influences your self-esteem. Looking after yourself should always be your priority, but as a teen, this often gets overlooked, so it helps to go back to basics sometimes so you can re-centre yourself.
