I just never seem to feel comfortable in my body!

Having a negative body image can sometimes be just as unhealthy as having an actual disease. How comfortable you are in your physical appearance can have a deep impact on how you’re living life. With a negative body image, you are limiting yourself from what you can be and all you can achieve.

The fact is if you feel good about yourself you’ll be more confident in this world. But you’ll never feel good unless you drop your negative body image. You are who you think you are. If you believe you’re not attractive, you’ll never be attractive!

So the most important step you can make to improve your body image is to get rid of a negative body image. This will include changing the way you think about your appearance and yourself in general.

Steps To Removing A Negative Body Image

Here are some steps to help you eliminate your negative body image easily:

  1. Convert Negative Thoughts to Positive Ones: The first thing you must do is to steer clear of negative thoughts and direct your energy to positive thoughts. For instance, if you failed in one test, think of how many other tests you have passed. Or if you think you’re not sexy, think of how strong you are. The key is to emphasize your strengths and achievements, not your weaknesses and disappointments.

  2. Surround Yourself With Positive People: Your motivation to get an improved body image will increase if you have encouraging people around you. You can also get positive feedbacks if you join support groups in the area of health and fitness. Fitness classes or getting gym membership can make you feel good about yourself.

  3. Have Fun While Getting Fit: If you feel you have to drag yourself to do a workout, then you really need to find ways to get fit and enjoy it at the same time. For example, you can try swimming, cycling, or dancing. These ways can help burn a lot of calories while enjoying yourself at the same time. Getting fit doesn’t always have to mean lifting heavy workout equipment in a gym.

  4. Research New Ways to Get in Shape: Science and technology continues to bring new discoveries and innovations when it comes to getting in shape. For example, the studies on omega-3 found in many foods reveal how they are good for the heart and boost the immune system. More effective techniques in exercise are also developed every now and then.

    And of course, medical procedures to improve the body’s figure and physical appearance are becoming more advanced and cheaper all the time. While surgery is not required to improve a negative body image, if there’s something that’s constantly bothering you about some part of your body – there’s no harm inquiring to see if it can be fixed.

  5. Indulge Yourself in Things that Can Give You Happiness: Being physically fit is not the only thing that can give you a positive self-image. Studies continue to show that the happiness of the mind and the body are relative. Develop a hobby that interests you, or volunteer for a worthy cause. Your body image will significantly improve when you’re always feeling happy.

  6. Try New Things: Finally, you can improve your body image and even your mood by trying something new. If you’re life feels like just a daily routine, it could be that your boredom is affecting your body image. Get yourself a makeover, have a new haircut and wear new clothing styles. Treat yourself to a relaxing massage or spa or take some time to relax on a vacation. You’ll be able to eliminate your negative body image if you are kind and generous to yourself.
