Changing the way think at about our bodies!

Loving your own body, as obvious as the notion may seem, is often easier said than done.

Changing the way we think requires daily effort, just the same as keeping your teeth healthy requires daily brushing. It’s not always a thrill ride. Some of the work might be boring or even feel silly sometimes, and that’s OK.
There are countless ways you can work on body positivity, and you’ll have to find out what works for you. Just to get you started on your self-love journey.

Here are just couple things that I've find useful. Be Brave, Be the miracle Be the Change!

These things can be a slow burner, but they make a great fire!

1.Compliment others freely
Often times we project our own insecurities onto other people. We judge them harshly because we judge ourselves too harshly. But when we open ourselves up to be kind to others, it also opens us up to be kinder to ourselves. Give someone a compliment you wished you’d gotten when you needed it most. Be someone else’s silver lining today, and tell them they’re rocking their look

2.Surround yourself with positivity
Negative messages about body image are all around us, and they have a way of weaseling themselves into our thoughts and antagonizing our insecurities. This might be photoshopped images of models on billboards, or body negative people in your life, and even body negative posts on social media. According to one study, participants who spent more time on social media were more likely to develop a negative body image, and more likely to develop eating disorders. So, try to cut out the negativity that you can.

Curate your social media feeds, hide those fad diet posters. Look for positive people, people who practice self-love, and people who will encourage you to be who you are.

David and I are working just hard on self love. Starting Bear Body is part that journey as we know that many brothers or there need this too. Doing it together is powerful and will only make us strong.
