Barbie turns 57 this year, yet she still has her killer figure—give us a break! Reality check people: your average woman does not look like Barbie—and that’s okay.
People come in all different shapes and sizes, but many feel the pressure to measure up to an unrealistic standard—an unattainable ideal—resulting in a negative body image and lack of self-confidence.
Well, no more! Here’s how to accept your body for what it is and make it the best it can be, so you can love the skin you’re in:
Stop dwelling on the negatives—remind yourself regularly of all your good qualities. Empower yourself with positive thinking!
Stay away from things that make you feel inferior: a friend who makes negative comments or fashion magazines and TV shows that feature women who all look like super models—realize they are just trying to take advantage of your insecurities and make you buy something!
Never mind what the scale says or what size you take, focus instead on how you feel and your overall health.
Remember, body size and structure are not just dependent on what you eat and how much you work out, but also genetics. You can’t always change how you look through diet and exercise alone, but if that is the case, and there’s that one thing that’s really affecting your self-esteem, Dr. Lisa J. Learn can help.
