Traits of People Who Are Happy With How Their Body Looks
It’s said that your mindset can contribute to weight issues, body issues and depression. But if your mind is keeping your weight up, it’s hard to get out of that funk and get back on track to losing weight and feeling like yourself again.
You’ve probably met those people. The ones who radiate confidence, even if they put on some winter fluff. You envy their liberation from the shackles of not liking how you look.
You’re not alone. The majority of people don’t like how they look, and the secrets to liking their appearance lies with the few who love themselves, just as they are.
Now, before you go all eye rolling, this isn’t a feel-good ‘accept yourself’ blog. It’s a new perspective so you can change your mind and eventually—yourself. Maybe..your life?
Studies were conducted to determine differences between the majority of people who hate how they look, versus the people who love their appearance.
Here’s what they found:
People with a Positive Body Image Are Involved in Causes
Whether community, activism, local causes or charitable endeavors, people with a positive body image give themselves to a greater good. Being part of a cause to improve life or situations can empower people to do the same for themselves. So, if you’re not part of a cause, consider it. You might improve your own life as you improve others.
People with a Positive Body Image Avoid Social Media
Maybe not all together, but they are on social media less and connected to reality more. Photoshopped models and unrealistic expectations are not part of their lives. They avoid self doubt and maintain freedom from self-loathing.
People with a Positive Body Image Believe Life Isn’t About Appearance
OK, easier said than done, but if you can get away from your thoughts and start investing in experiences and life—you might forget to list out all the things you hate about your appearance, and start listing out all the great things you did today.
People with a Positive Body Image Have Good Friends and Fun
Studies showed that these positive peeps befriend positive peeps who don’t threaten their mojo. They also engage in activities that fulfill them-whether they choose kayaking over the treadmill or a soup kitchen over social media, they make conscious choices about who they surround themselves with and what they invest themselves in.
People with a Positive Body Image Take Care of Themselves
It’s easy to give up. If you feel like you’ve tried everything, or you also have a medical condition making a hard weight loss journey even harder—you may give up a little on yourself. Don’t. Take that walk. Choose the good carb. Keep caring for your body and watch how it transforms. If you can make small changes in your life that help improve your mindset, you might just find yourself swimming with the current, instead of against it.
