My first article will be live on the site very soon, but I wanted to give my wonderful Etched In Tin readers a taste before anyone else on the web!!
So, without further ado, here are 4 (of 7!) Easy Body Image Boosters.
:) Write out a list of all the little things you like about your appearance. For example: ‘I have fabulous legs’. ‘My arms look awesome when I wear sleeveless tops’. ‘I love how my eyes pop when I wear bright liner’. On ‘ugly days’, go over your list for a boost!
:) Find a go-to clothing item that you always feel great in, be it a perfectly tailored pair of pants, sky-high heels or a little black dress.
:) Check out the Health At Every Size (HAES) movement. HAES embraces the fact that we all have different sizes and shapes and health is more important than fitting society’s beauty ideals.
:) Cover your walls with photos and magazine clippings of your body image role models. Think of women who are comfortable with their figures, no matter what they look like. Emulate their confidence. Ideas to start your collection: Lizzie Miller (plus size model), your best friends, Christina Hendricks, Beth Ditto, Lady Gaga.
What would you add, gorgeous?
